What’s not to like? The proposed TTIP is a sensational opportunity, says Boris

In the Daily Telegraph today, Boris Johnson’s latest article is about a deal with the US that would have had Churchill beaming.   It will bring Britain and Europe closer to America. The idea, says Boris,  is to create a gigantic free-trade zone between the EU and the US, or a TTIP – a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. It is sometimes referred to as the “Tafta” – the Transatlantic Free Trade Area.J104162401He begins:  “In April 1955, the 80-year-old Winston Churchill held his last Cabinet meeting before going to offer his resignation to the Queen. He had two insights he wanted to get over. “Man is spirit,” he told his ministers, and: “Never be separated from the Americans.” Continue reading

On #bbcsp, Unite member Pilgrim Tucker blatantly fibs about the cause of the housing crisis

On BBC Sunday Politics today, a member of the union Unite, Pilgrim Tucker, was making sweeping, unfounded accusations that Boris Johnson is selling off London land cheaply to his mates!  Where is her evidence for this?jamescleverlyTim Donovan pointed out that at a time of huge economic difficult, it is unlikely that builders will be building loads of homes anyway.  . James Cleverly refuted everything.  The accusation that homes are being sold off to foreign investors or that the fault for the housing crisis is down to the Tories, or that Boris Johnson has built insufficient homes.  Housing built in Boris’s first term was 55,000, a record, but nobody can catch up  on 13 years of Blair/Brown negligence.

Another bad poll for UKIP – oddballs and wackos says YouGov

To hear Nigel Farage talk, UKIP is the voice of reason, the peoples’ party, admired and trusted.  What a shock then to find out what people really think. Once again, a YouGov polling result hits the party like a douche of cold water.  It looks like UKIP has a lot of work to do to establish more trust. .UKIPpolling1The poll reveals hardly anyone agrees that UKIP is more trusted than the main parties, their members are regarded as oddballs, and they are a protest party, with no realistic policies.

Sounds about right!

Shock poll reveals Boris Johnson considered much better for politics than Nigel Farage says YouGov

A recent poll shows that far more people consider Boris Johnson will be good for politics  when he returns as an MP than Nigel Farage, says YouGov.  Public response regarding Boris Johnson’s return was overwhelmingly positive, 43% believe he will be a force for good,  onlt 24% do not.  boriscaringUnfortunately, that is not case regarding Nigel Farage.  More people, 41%,  think he will have a bad influence on politics than good! (only 33%).  See poll below.borisfarage Continue reading

When will the Kardashians realise they have control issues?

Boris Johnson’s kids are fascinated by the Kardashians, revealed the Mayor in an an interview with the Radio Times.  He doesn’t get it, because the Kardashians, the subject of a famous US reality show  are only famous for being famous.  I hardly ever watch the show but for anyone who hasn’t heard of them, this is my take on the Kardashians.kimbootie2Mum Kris and step-dad Bruce are the parents of a beautiful set of kids and they all feature in a reality show of their lives on US TV.

Daughter Kim, the most beautiful of the daughters, has a fantastic bootie.  The scuttlebutt  (ha!)  is that she has had derriere implants.  Kim is married to superstar singer Kanye West.  Kanye is very controlling and obsessively concerned with Kim’s looks, particularly if she gains weight.

Losing their marbles? Amal Clooney is advising on getting Elgin Marbles returned to Greece

Before the opening of George Clooney’s movie The Monuments Men, Boris Johnson remarked that George, who said the Elgin Marbles should be returned to Greece,  was showing a rather sketchy knowledge of history.  The Elgin Marbles are a cherished part of the childhood of our Mayor, who would regularly go to the British Museum to marvel at their glories.

georgeamalBoris pointed out the irony of making a movie criticising the looting by Goering and the Nazis of  European art treasures, while advocating the same action, and sarcastically quipped maybe George should get his own marbles restored. Continue reading

We can’t stop people entering this country from all 28 EU nations, says Boris Johnson

UKIP has been making headlines for the past few weeks and there is no denying the anger of the Kippers.  The answer is to vote Tory, says Boris Johnson in the Daily Telegraph today.faragecarswellBoris begins:  “I think we are in danger of drawing the wrong conclusion about the rise of Ukip. It is true that the kippers are fed up with things as they are, and it is true that the number one issue they mention – publicly and privately – is immigration. I am not at all sure that it follows that they are all racists who want to kick out everyone with a brown face and send the last Polish plumber back to Poland. Continue reading
