Tweet on Syria by Emeritus Professor puts peaceniks in their place

Boris says on Marr, Assad wants to impose “a Carthaginian peace” on Syria

Boris Johnson was praised for his clarity in this interview on the Andrew Marr show, in which he talked about the successful US/UK/FR  air. strike in Douma.

The strike was to take out three chemical weapon sites, not to engage in the conflict in Syria or to replace Assad.  Boris says it was a preposterous and deranged suggestion from Jeremy Corbyn that the UK was involved in the poison attacks. Continue reading

May 13 points ahead of cynical antisemite Corbyn

A Mail on Sunday poll shows that PM May has soared into a huge personal lead over antisemitic Jeremy Corbyn.

On March 4th, the Russians tried to murder the Skripals and May’s personal popularity soared to 13 points ahead of Jeremy Corbyn. Her handling of the situation far outclassed the potty theories of the Labour leader, who was seen as a Russian stool pigeon, or as Boris Johnson put it, Russia’s useful idiot.   Continue reading

Boris’s comments on OPCW report as crisis in Syria escalates

Polls show majority want action taken against Assad in Syria

Corbynistas are sayng that no-one is in favour of Britain backing the US in exacting retribution against the Assad government.  I have never believed this to be true.  A poll from Sky Data shows that 51% were in favour of action being taken against the Assad regime.  32% were against and 17% were don’t knows.

A friend of mine is a professor at UCL.  He was kind enough to lobby students and lecturers at UCL  and the result was the same as the SKY poll.  Students and lecturers when asked, in the main, agreed something must be done.  The feeling was if we allowed a poison attack once on British soil,  with no retaliation, the door would be open for further attacks.

Bullying Russia stands alone and isolated says Boris

The West has let Putin get away with bad behaviour for way too long.  On Friday, it was revealed that 131 people might have been exposed to Novichok nerve gas.  Boris Johnson explains below why we have to stand up to bullies like the Russians.

In a Sun exclusive, Boris wrote:  On Friday it emerged that 131 innocent people may have been exposed to the Novichok nerve agent. Continue reading

Our issues with Russia are very serious, said Boris Johnson in Parliament

Boris Johnson described in detail the issues we have with Russia. The attempted murder of Skripal is still being investigated.  His words are recorded in Hansard Online     The Foreign Secretary said:

I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom Tugendhat) for raising this important matter. Although he asks a general question about Russia, let me immediately say that there is much speculation about the disturbing incident in Salisbury, where a 66-year-old man, Sergei Skripal, and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia were found unconscious outside The Maltings shopping centre on Sunday afternoon. Police, together with partner agencies, are now investigating.  Continue reading
