    It work's better in the US because you have to be a member to identify as such, thus there are >40 million democrat members (16% electorate) and >30 million (12% electorate) Republican members, it's far better representation than 0.4% for the Tories and about 1.2% for Labour members...

    Does anyone believe a word of this?

    He just does not look like a single word coming out of his mouth is remotely true.

    Going frame by frame is hilarious, what even was that. All i can i think of right now is the Ancient Aliens meme "I...i...i...uhh...uh...paint...things...BUSES...LONDON...!"

    This is Boris doing improv. Study it, because he'll use the same technique for more serious issues when he's pm.

    Just..... eh? Presumably he got flustered then decided to have a bit of a laugh... but it’s very odd.

    The thing is though, if he's so willing and brazen to lie so obviously and lazily about something so innocuous, what about the bigger, more important stuff?

    Watching this made me realise I've never really paid attention when he's talking before, but he's so insincere! It's really remarkable.

    We already know how easily and casually he lies about everything to get what he wants, the only surprise is he continually gets away with it!

    I don't even think that was supposed to be serious tbh, I would even go as far as to say it was an intentional **** take....talking about how he likes to paint things on the side of made up buses....

    He's rubbing your nose in it :p

    its too on the nose (along with some white powder) for it not to either be

    a) he is intentionally trying to poke fun at the 350 million a week on a bus thing
    b) he is making up some nonsense to sound like he is normal (e.g running through wheat fields) but because he is a completely empty headed moron the only thing in there floating around in the void is the 350 mil bus thing

    Exactly, it's all distraction...... "Look over here!!11!!" so that you don't look over there at his vacuous lack of credibility

    :confused: what do you mean? Do you think we have somehow been duped for thinking his response is weird?

    No, but we aren't talking about the important stuff in regards to him.

    My mind was made up on him with his announcement of proposed tax cuts for the rich rather than ‘funding for the NHS’. You couldn’t make up how manipulative he is.

    yes we are talking about what an outright embarrassment of a shambles of a bag of meat he is, it would be shocking if he could even get through a light snack let alone an interview

    His Brexit policy has already been shredded and turned into hamster bedding so not much left to discuss on that front
    when even multiple disgraced world champion Liam Fox is waking up to reality you know you its gone beyond ridiculous now

    But as i said a few days ago, you're not the target audience, he doesn't give a flying monkies about your opinion.
