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 Johnson has made a statement on the analysis by the OPCW (Org. for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) of the poison that was used to try to kill the Skripals. The full report of the the OPCW is also below. The horrific result of the use of chemical weapons in Syria is a warning if no action were taken when there are further incidents here.
Boris has had experience of the use of chemical warfare in Syria, since he became Foreign Secretary. He states that Assad has used chemical weapons four times since 2014. The displacement of 700.000 Syrians is a major crisis since early 2018. Continue reading

Boris Johnson makes a statement issued by the Foreign Office on sanctions against the people responsible for chemical weapons in Syria. Boris has said it is our moral duty to keep Syria safe.
The success of 16 arrests shows the resolve of the UN in bringing the perpetrators to justice. Progress at last, and this is definite and substantial evidence that should strike fear into the hearts of the evil hearted.
On Fox News this morning, it turns out that other interviewers have made the same statement as the one that got Sean Spicer into such trouble. They said “Even the Nazis did not use chemical weapons” and in one sense this is completely right.
Chemical weapons are flammable. What broadcasters meant to say was “Even the Nazis were not so reckless, sadistic and stupid as to use chemical weapons in warfare in an uncontrolled environment.” Continue reading
Boris Johnson guested last night on the sparky Channel 4 comedy show, The Last Leg. The three quick witted hosts managed the difficult balancing act of being cheeky and amusingly irreverent towards the Mayor, while avoiding the pitfall of being downright nasty and insulting, a test failed by most modern comedians. Potentially embarrassing questions such as whether Boris is actually Josh Widdicombe’s father and why was the Mayor wearing such a long tie were disposed of with style. Continue reading
