Johnson has promised tax cuts from divorce money IF he gets it from the EU.

But only for those earning more than £50,000.

Why is the same criticism not levelled at Boris?

He 'buffooned' his way out of questions concerning his cocaine use, pretending his incompetence excused him.

"Tried but failed"

"Sneezed"

"It was probably icing sugar anyway"

etc etc

He would have been thrown out of the Bullindon Club!

Then he just does a Trump, and in spite of the TV footage to the contrary, simply denies that he ever said it anyway!

Much as I like Boris, and I am not just saying that, I genuinely do, (His narration of classics on TV was first class) nevertheless, I do not think he is a fit person to be PM. I'll not bother to list the reasons: they are public knowledge.

To be honest there is no one fit to be PM from the ones we all know, all have been underhanded in their private and public lives. But we will have to live with the best of a bad lot whoever gets the job.

Esther McVey has issued this statement.

I am extremely grateful to those people who voted for me in this election and to the fantastic team who have supported my campaign.

I am pleased to have had a platform to make the case for Blue Collar Conservatism, a clean break from the EU and the need to invest money into schools, policing and a proper pay rise for our public sector workers.

I will speak to the remaining candidates to see who is best placed to deliver on that programme.

I wish the remaining candidates well and I hope that all Conservative MPs will unite behind whoever wins this contest which is essential to prevent the disaster of a Marxist government.

Whoever becomes the new leader will certainly receive my support.

Nine Votes she got, I bet she's grinding her bloody teath down.

Posted by: TerryW (1700) Report abuse
All 313 Tory MPs voted, she says. There were no spoilt ballot papers.

Boris Johnson - 114

Jeremy Hunt - 43

Michael Gove - 37

Dominic Raab - 27

Sajid Javid - 23

Matt Hancock - 20

Rory Stewart - 19

Mark Harper - 10

Andrea Leadsom - 11

Esther McVey - 9

I will never forgive, or forget, what McVey did to the disabled workers at Remploy.

When she closed the factories, (there was one on Darlington St), only 35 out of a 1,000 laid off workers found a job.
https://www.theguardian.com/society/2012/nov/23/remploy-workers-new-jobs-labour

To add insult to injury, some had 50% emergency tax taken out of their their final pay packet.
https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/sacked-remploy-workers-hit-50-3335151

She then sold it off for £2,000,000, (that's 2 million quid for the Diane Abott mathematicians), and then means tested the benefits for the laid off workers.
Difficult enough for fully fit folk to get a job: imagine what it's like with a disability.

McVey than flogged Remploy off for 2 million quid and it has now "delivered annual profits of £7.1m for its American owner."

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/profits-soar-at-remploy-sold-off-by-ministers-led-by-esther-mcvey-ns5jqrfkp

Flogged off for 2m: £7,100,000 profit per annumm,
She stood up for blue collar conservatives, she said, but took over £8,750 pounds in two years on expenses for a personal photographer.
Now that's what you call a brass neck.

Posted by: TerryW (1700) Report abuse
"In 1986, Corbyn was arrested with 15 demonstrators protesting against the trial of a group of IRA members including the Brighton Bomber Patrick Magee. Magee would be found guilty of murdering five people. After refusing police requests to move from outside the court, Corbyn and the other protesters were arrested for obstruction and held for five hours before being released on bail, but were not charged. Following the 1987 Loughgall ambush, in which eight IRA members and one civilian were shot dead by the British Army in an operation to defend a police station, Corbyn attended a commemoration by the Wolfe Tone Society and stated "I'm happy to commemorate all those who died fighting for an independent Ireland."

In the early 1990s, MI5 opened a temporary file on Corbyn to monitor his links to the IRA. The Metropolitan Police's Special Branch monitored Corbyn for two decades, as he was "deemed to be a subversive", someone who might "undermine ... Parliamentary democracy". He appeared at a number of Republican protest events. According to The Sunday Times, following research in Irish and Republican archives, Corbyn was involved in over 72 events connected with Sinn Féin, or other pro-republican groups, during the period of the IRA's paramilitary campaign."

Not only did he betray his country he made a laughing stock of himself with the IRA hierarchy thinking he could be their best friend.

Whups,
Glad you enjoyed your time travelling the world. However all you seem to do these days is blame the Tories for everything. As I told you before I have voted Conservative as many times as you in my life but I never think, especially these days, that Labour could sort out everything. Neither do the electorate or the Tories wouldn’t be in power. I think politics is in a sorry state. The Labour party of my youth and most of my adulthood has long since disappeared. These lot don’t give a toss about the working class.

broady you want to come back & see what the torys have done to this country . food banks quadrupled , nhs being sold off , 130,000 deaths attributed to tory austerity plans including the dreaded universal credit ,public services cut because of lack of funding & the list goes on . then you ask why i,m against the tories ? .the truth is that there is more of us than them , but getting labour voters to get into the polling booths & vote this rabble out is another subject .

Posted by: broady (14670)   Report abuse
But do you think Labour are capable of solving all of the above? You can no more prove the 130,000 deaths that I can disprove it. I was in the UK last September and didn’t notice any difference but I must admit I didn’t search for it. I was in Tenerife for a month in March and it was jammed with British pensioners. Not the so called “ rich folk” but ex brickies, scaffolders, engineers, construction workers and dare I say it miners. All having a pint in the sun. All what you mention was discussed in every bar. I have had cataracts removed from both eyes in the last seven weeks. Carried out in private clinics. Cost to me ZILCH. They simply bill Alberta health. No one wandering around carrying folders. Trimmed to the bone as they have to make a profit.

Posted by: whups (3590)   Report abuse
how can anyone ever answer that if labour is not in power . as for cataracts is concerned the daily mirror has just uncovered that warrington & halton have a "menu" of operations that are private charges & cataracts are around 2,500 to have it done & deliberately holding back nhs treatment so that people will go private . £18,500 for a hip replacement .on question time last week a disabled comic called francesca martinez quoted this number as a fact the tory on the panel could not deny that as a fact as from 2012 there had been that many deaths attributed to austerity plans by the torys & lib dems.you will find pensioners in benidorm & majorca because it,s cheaper to live there than here ? .

So a comedienne goes on a programme and comes up with a figure and it is now gospel. I had a major operation in 1998 and was quoted £10,000 to have it done at the same hospital. So those charges have always been around. I don’t see the problem. If someone has saved their money, rather than peeing it up against the wall every night, why shouldn’t they be able to pay. I presume the monies go into the NHS coffers and as long as no one loses their place on the NHS waiting list.

Has anyone mentioned that the rat Corbyn wants ex British soldiers to face prosecution for doing their job in northern Ireland.

"The Labour Party leader said the law “must apply to everyone” when was quizzed over the Bloody Sunday shooting, during which 13 unarmed civilians were killed by British soldiers in Northern Ireland’s Londonderry. But his remarks were met with anger by those siding with veterans and the victims of the IRA, whose suspected terrorists were granted amnesty by former Prime Minister Tony Blair."

Just wondering what the red comrades on here think to this, are they willing to see these ex soldiers handed over to be prosecuted because the their Labour rat Corbyn says so?

"A former IRA terrorist said Jeremy Corbyn's support for the group gave its members "great encouragement" and claimed the Labour leader and shadow chancellor John McDonnell have "blood on their own hands".



Sean O'Callaghan said the support of the Labour leader and Mr McDonnell had "made it easier" for the republican terror group to carry out atrocities.

A spokesman for the Labour dismissed the "false and contemptible claims" and stressed Mr Corbyn and Mr McDonnell's commitment to the peace process.

IRA terrorist-turned-informer O'Callaghan, a convicted double killer, said he witnessed the impact of the support from the Labour figures during the 1980s.

Writing in The Sun he said: "IRA men and women, many young and hopelessly politically naive, derived great encouragement from the solidarity openly displayed by Corbyn, McDonnell and their associates.

"I know. I was there. I witnessed the effect. They might not have pulled a trigger or planted a bomb but they certainly made it easier for those who did."

Put this guy in Number 10...put him at the end of a rope, he's a treasonous rat.

Tweedledum and Tweedledee
Decided to have a battle;
For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.
Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
As black as a tar-barrel;
Which frightened both the heroes so,
They quite forgot their quarrel

That's quite an assumption.

I would hope it is "quite an assumption" too

grimy its good to see your not resorting to your usual insults.in fact i,m quite pleased your response to getting out more,i went in the back garden and laughed and laughed at your pitiful attempt at humour.however i did note your non response to your leader's praise of the illegal president of the nfortunate country the dictator rules.
can we look forward to the same benefits the venuzaluan people are now enduring when commissar corbyn takes power in britain.

Watched the stage managed interview he did with the BBC last night.
The blustering bumbling buffoon is going to make Trump look like JFK on the world stage.

Oh, I wouldn't go that far: 'Trump Lite', surely?

The thing with Boris, is that HE DOES NOT EVEN APPEAR TO BE TELLING YOU THE TRUTH! Watched just on TV news, and ALL his body language indicating that he is telling lies!

It is as if he is flaunting a sub text of 'I don't need to tell the truth, I can get away with telling porkies!'

We have had many untruthful politicians.
We have had many arrogant politicians.
But we don't usually get this particular mix of the two!

what a set of snowflakes,fearing politicians,oh crumbs we have never had a bad PM before.laughable insanity.

Will we have to re-think all our pedagogy?

How do you teach kids that if you want to get on in this world, you have to be fat, lazy and dishonest?

Then again, plenty of our people are so, so perhaps 'The Fat Controller', who is shamelessly ruthless, is representative.

Wigan, again taken the lead in this social trend

Boris once again demonstrates he is never one to make the mistake of putting the country's interest ahead of his own.

What a disgrace the Tory party has become!

And, note to the usual suspects: don't bother replying by attacking Corbyn, I think we all know that Labour is as bad, so leave aside the attempt to distract us from awareness of the mediocre quality of someone about to be foisted upon us as PM!

Interesting to note that some of the big backers of bojo are the same people who were involved in the libor rate rigging scandal years ago.
One bank that the same people were associated with was fined £940 million by u s and u k regulators for the libor rigging.

One thing is certain.
I wouldnt allow bojo or hunt to look after MY dog for the weekend .

Yoo as a socialist believe in lots of public spending, and nationalised industries, so where do you think the money comes from to pay for such large public spending?

Posted by: grimshaw (1692)  Report abuse
Your point is .?

Well, Andrew Neil certainly exposed Boris's shortcomings!

Bojo still attempted to bluster and bully, and evade the questions. Andrew is the first interviewer that I have seen stand up to Boris, and call him out, and not let him get away with his duplicitous tactics.

Is there something fishy about Bojo getting so far along in this selection process before he encounters an interlocutor of this calibre?

Andrew is one of the best, if not the best, in his field.

Can't disagree with that.
