Can anybody point out any problem sorted by bj



As an mp he has done nothing
As mayor he was a fat lump
As foreign secretary he was the worst ever and completely out of his depth
As an mp he has done nothing ... except make himself to be the favourite to be the next PM
As mayor he was a fat lump. That's just an insult.
As foreign secretary he was the worst ever and completely out of his depth. I wouldn't know. I presume you do know.

As a mayor he certainly did more constructive things than the current incumbent who is beyond useless

the current one cancelled the daft bridge, and sold the water cannons

what did BJ (possibly the most appropriate initials for someone so floppy) actually do?

1 yes we can agree he is narcissistic (and has done nothing). the tory members are known to like soundbites ahead of sound policies
2 yes he was an insult to the post of mayor for having achieved so little
3 I have never met anybody that could argue with that, nor of anything that he did that was praiseworthy

At last Corbyn is saying he favours a second referendum. Cable asked for this unity months ago.
With Remain parties actually getting more votes than Leave parties, with Labours help they could have easily toppled Farage this weekend

If Tottenham and Arsenal's points had been added together, Man City would not have been champions. There is no way all labour voters would have wanted to remain any more than all Tories would have wanted to leave.

Corbyn has been manipulated by extremists in his immediate surroundings seumus Milne Karie Murphy Andre ] ken mccluskey who have no wish for uk to stay in the eu. They are far to the left and are largely communist sympathisers who have no general wish for the prosperity of this country. In my view they are bad men surrounding a weak leader
The important thing about the eu vote last week is that there were far more voting on the remain side who were uneqivocally against Brexit; liberals snp plaid green ,alliance , change uk (and indeed sinn fein) well over 40% than were voting for brexit ie Farage UKIP dup about 37% and other dross

This leaves out labour and Tory
As bristle says they would each be split, ( i believe around 75 to 25% in opposite directions) but roughly balancing each other

But even so there is clearly no national majority for brexit any longer

So for Farage to claim a victory, whilst it was an impressive achievement , is substantially overstating his case. But that is how his lies and sound bites work and it is lapped up by those less able to think things through

We have already voted to leave the EU in a Referendum. End of. ALL, repeat, ALL the M.P.'S need to do now is sort the loose ends. Easy.

Oh come on Brian you know the rules, as set by the remainers, if you lose an election it becomes a best of three contest, if you lose the next one it becomes best of five. No matter how mnany insults are thrown or how many times each person who voted to leave gets called stupid or a racist we still got off our ar5e5 and went out and voted for what we wanted. Thinking perhaps stupidly that politicians would go ahead and leave. Why does there have to be a deal. The EU are the ones who want a deal to cream more money from the UK economy.

you will note that no brexiteer will ever admit to what it is that we will lose after brexit.

the lying promises are all seen to be what they were. lies and hunting for unicorns. even the overrated lump of lying lard is now being called to court. presumably arron banks will pay his legal fees

if there is "no deal" and we are reliant on WTO schedules then we will lose massively in economic terms. we would be desperate to go back to the fictitious £350million per week because we will be so much more worse off

It's amazing how Brexiteers still can't admit that they've got it wrong here. The idea in theory was old-fashioned but romantic, but I don't understand why people don't just resign to the reality that they've been duped. The world has changed a lot in the last 100 years, no country can cut themselves off & expect to prosper!

Choosing to vote for City Bankers who claim to represent the common person, on the basis that they get photographed in pubs having a pint and a fag! Forget the constant lies, they're one of us you know!

not only do they play football in Scotland but it was a Scottish club that was the first british club to win the European cup

further, the teams that win the English league are always overfilled with foreigners

it is far easier to buy success than nurture it

Ummm! Celtic current squad: 14 nationals and 20 foreigners!
The last Scottish team to win the European Cup was Aberdeen in 1983, 36 years ago, Rangers in 1972 (47 years ago) and Celtic in 1967 (52 years ago) Not much nurturing going on here!
