Thread: Boris Johnson - Mastermind

  1. #1

    Boris Johnson - Mastermind

    The link below is a vidoe of Boris Johnson appearing on 'Have I Got News For You' from the later 1990's.
    It was the first time I ever came across him.
    I thought he was a twit then and nothing much has happened since to change my mind.
    The guy belongs in TV comedy - not politics.
    Older forumites (and indeed many younger ones)may have seen this already but his treatment by the team is still hilarious

    I would say that I can't believe he is PM but actually I can, and it's quite transparent how he managed it.

    What I can't understand is that how people still think he (and Trump) are still credible.

    What a shambles. If Labour had had a viable alternative, none of those charlatans would be in government.

    Absolutely. When you look at some of the things both of those pricks have said in the past it beggars belief that they are running their respective countries.

    I mean those are some pretty important questions he raises there. People are under the (not necessarily incorrect) impression that they have more important things to worry about now like the price of gas, but make no mistake, the best time to prepare for issues as big as the ones he mentions is yesterday. The second best is today.

    He's a clown, but I thought that's the whole point of his character - the "lovable" bullish "Rule Britannia" attitude.

    A carefully prepared script (but by who?) and what relevance?
    Major references to Prometheus (Greek mythology from thousands of years ago).
    People laughing in the audience.
    This week he blamed care homes for quote "not following procedures".
    Later, albeit via other ministers, he said this was misinterpreted and what was meant was that the procedures were not clear owing to the constantly new information becoming available (or something like that).
    If the procedures were not made clear then you cannot blame the care workers for not having followed them.
    No decent apology given just more waffle on that front (hard to defend really - easier for a full apology and an explanation upfront by BJ if that really was the case)
    That was an unforgivable error from someone in such a position and I do not endear myself to the "lovable" bullish "Rule Britannia" attitude. Such quips are never too faraway from him.
    One day there will be a proper independent investigation into what happened in our care homes and hopefully the truth will out.
    I continue to expect more such 'twit' crap from BJ (and his 'Eton' boys) during his tenure.

    Yeah, I don't dispute that this was probably not the right time / way to raise the questions, just that they are very important. He probably doesn't realise that, but even a broken twat is right twice a day, or however the saying goes.
