How Boris forced May to deal with Putin when she wanted to run and hide

When Boris Johnson raised the issue of the Skripal poisoning in Cabinet, and said the only response was to hang tough with Putin, May screamed at him in front of Cabinet members and ordered him to be silent.  May has an ostrich mentality.  If she can possibly avoid dealing with tough issues, she will.  Her speciality is to  kick them into the long grass.  

It is only because other Cabinet members backed Boris to the hilt that she was made to listen at all!  Gavin Williamson and even Philip Hammond, forced May to face the truth.  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

May is the Wicked Queen to Boris Johnson’s Snow White

That’s rich!  ” Theresa May ‘orders squabbling ministers to Chequers away day’ to put an end to Brexit war”,  screamed the Daily Mirror headline.  For the PM to describe the vital concerns of Brexiteers over the most important issue for this country for centuries as “squabbling”  is just an insult. The reason for the  “away day” was because the PM seemed to be veering towards a customs union.It was the same today.   One of the headlines in the Sunday Times today in an article by Tim Shipman read “Theresa May’s chief of staff Gavin Barwell ‘tried to kneecap Boris Johnson’”  A private letter from Boris to very few people was leaked to Sky News.    Tim makes it plain that for the villain, we need look no further than No. 10, although Boris tactfully denied this.    Continue reading

Let’s do it! Macron’s excited response to Boris suggestion of an Anglo/French bridge

French President Macron is hugely enthusiastic about the idea from Boris Johnson to build a bridge linking across the Channel.  Boris told his aides it is absolutely ridiculous that the only link between our countries is one railway link! When Boris floated the idea at the summit, an excited French Prez said immediately “Let’s do it!”

Boris was obviously a huge hit with the French, charming them with his fluent accentless French and no doubt, knowledge of French literature and the French mediaeval poets.  As Mayor, every time he went to France, he was mobbed.  Continue reading

D. Tel exclusive: Give an extra £100 million to NHS a week or lose, Boris urges May

Today’s Telegraph in an exclusive reported:  Boris Johnson has warned Theresa May that the Government must make a public commitment to giving the NHS an extra £100million a week after Brexit if the Tories are to beat Jeremy Corbyn at the next election.

The Foreign Secretary believes that the Government must adopt the flagship Vote Leave pledge and spend £5.2billion a year that would have been paid into Brussels on the health service instead. Continue reading

Shameless Richard Ratcliffe is still not telling the truth over Nazanin charges

In what looked like the beginning of a climbdown, after letting Boris Johnson be viciously dumped on for a week,  the Mail reported:   “Richard Ratcliffe revealed Iran had been looking at extending her {Nazanin’s) sentence before Mr. Johnson’s gaffe, telling ITV news:  “In fairness, there were hints of new charges before he made the comments.”

There is no fairness in Mr. Ratcliffe’s comments, in fact, they are an outright lie. Continue reading
