Johnson is talking a load of Boris about #Brexit again. Why is the BBC giving him airtime?

Boris Johnson: The eyes are open, the mouth moves, but there’s no sign of intelligent life at all.

As I type this, I’m watching Boris Johnson talking his usual gibberish about Brexit.

He keeps talking about taking back control over our laws – we never lost it!

And he says we’ll regain control of our borders – we never lost that either!

What else did he say? Nothing at all. Really.

But this is the lead story on the BBC lunchtime news.

There is nothing newsworthy about his speech. Nothing at all.

He said nothing new, and the old claims he was repeating didn’t even come across from an interesting new angle.

It’s just pro-Brexit propaganda, intended to lead gullible British people by the nose into acceptance of a situation that will seriously hurt them.

It must be opposed.

Don’t you wish Tory ministers and their prostitute media would stop lying and admit that Brexit can only harm the UK?

    As this character only acts out of selfish self-interest, I strongly suspect this is more about the dishonest, odious and incompetent slob Johnson making another bid for the leadership of the Nasty Party.

    That wouldn’t be Big Red Bus Boris would it? Obviously we can all believe every word that man says without hesitation.

    Somewhere in amongst all that guff from Johnson was the claim that Brexit wasn’t a gigantic V-sign to the rest of Europe. I couldn’t help thinking that the gigantic V-sign was making him Secretary of State at the Foreign Office in the first place. I recall him underlining that V-sign with his comment that the EU could “go whistle for its money”. How low public life has descended in this country.

    What else did he say?

    This, apparently;

    ” Journalist: “Foreign Secretary, what do you say to those people who say, Yet another speech on Brexit… but where is the clarity?”
    Boris Johnson: “The carrot?”
    Journalist: ‘The clarity”
    Boris Johnson: “Clarity’ OK God Carrot. Carrot… Well, as I say, I think you have an abundance of clarity in the Prime Minister’s Lancaster House speech [from January 2017]… What I’m trying to address is a feeling that I pick up talking to people that they’re not getting the message, the positive agenda -1 think there is a great positive agenda and we need to get out there and explain it. And it can be good for carrots too, by the way. All nght. you didn’t actually mention carrots, but… we can take back control of our agricultural policies, and it may be that we can do wonderful things with, you know, our own regulations to. you know… Promote organic carrots”

      Oh, you’ve beaten me to it!
      I’m still going to use that dialogue in a follow-up story though!

    Sounds like pie in the sky to me.

    Joseph Goebbels wrote: “English people act according to the principle that if you lie, then lie thoroughly, and above all, stick to what you have lied! So they stay with their hoaxes, even at the risk of making a fool of themselves.” It’s what Adolf Hitler called “The Big Lie” in “Mein Kampf”.

    I am not comparing Boris to any Nazi, just using their words to explain his actions.

    The guy is a clown and a buffoon, and as soon as the BBC start produing comedy that is funny, they are going to keep showing Boris.

    The BBC allowing pro leave good grief what next, admitting they spread pro eu propaganda and have been totally biased about the referendum, BTW remain voted to send money to the eu instead of it being spent here, that is still happening so the money is not available for the NHS remainders should be pleased to be getting what they essentially voted for.

  8. Pat Sheehan

    That Boris bloke seems to be a bit short on ‘fibre’! I think we can all look forward to hearing more about carrots soon.

    As said, we never lost control of UK borders in the EU. As proof of that, just consider the regular imposition of “Operation Stack” in Kent. Because of delays at Dover caused by UK-required red-tape and paperwork, lorries bound for the ferries could be parked along the motorways for miles, stretching back past Maidstone towards London. This caused massive local traffic disruption. If the UK leaves the EU, and there is no fudge allowing convergence of customs rules and regulations, there will be yet more red-tape/paperwork required and the traffic queues will become even worse.Compare that to the experience crossing the French/Belgian border, or from France into Germany etc. You just drive across and the border is unmarked or retains a rusty pole in a permanently open position.
    On a related topic, am I the only one old enough to remember when nobody even referred to “UK Borders”? They just didn’t exist except if somebody recalled the oddity across Ireland. The UK just had coasts.
