When Boris was Mayor of London, the battles for the rights of Londoners, the black cab trade, police numbers, funding and economic decisions, were always full bloodedly thrashed out in private, away from the media.
So discreet was Boris, at one stage, he was getting it from both sides. Black cab drivers were abusing him on the roads as he rode his bike, while Osbo and Cameron were ganging up to force him to favour Uber, and push black cabs off the road. An immovable Boris wouldn’t shift. He didn’t think it was right, so in the end, Osbo took the issue of Uber away from Boris and handled it himself. Continue reading

OMIGOD. I am not a May fun, but the PM could not have made a better decision than to shun the bitter leftie losers who seized the opportunity to spew venom in last night’s BBC debate. Continue reading

In answer to untrue attacks on Boris Johnson in the Sun, I gave the following info., answering the smears. For some reason, the Sun removed my post. Hopefully they will now let me print a response, if not, I’m putting the link on twitter. “A comment said nobody likes Boris. But Boris has won five elections, how does that fit? Two Mayoral elections. Two national elections – when Tories were in trouble, Osbo sent Boris to win the marginals, which he did, blowing sky high the theory he is only popular in the Home Countries, and London. Boris was the overwhelming deciding factor in Brexit. Continue reading

As a conversion, it is more astonishing than St. Paul on the road to Damascus! PM May has suddenly become a clean Brexiteer! This is the lady who dubbed anyone who wanted a clean break from the EU “crazy” and a “fanatic!” This is the lady who admits she is a Remainer, who gave free rein to the Chancellor to slag off Brexit and whose husband Phil, a hedge fund manager, loves the EU almost more than life itself.It struck me as odd that when the PM announced the forthcoming election in Parliament, there was not a Brexiteer in sight. David Cameron, Blair, Cleggers, even the EU members were ecstatic at the news and announced glowingly that a huge mandate would “ensure the best deal for Britain” something they suddenly seemed awfully happy about.

Although Theresa May claims to be “protecting Brexit”, the strategy of rushing through a snap election should give Brexit voters huge cause for alarm. She is duplicating the strategy of Harold Wilson in 1975.
Ted Heath rushed us illegally into the EU in 1972, by not calling a Referendum. Three years later, Harold Wilson apparently set this right, but he turned the Ref. into a vote of confidence for the government which, like May, he knew he would win. He then took advantage of the innocent public by binding us further into the EU. Continue reading
There is only one person to blame for the dire state of Anglo/Russian relations and that is Theresa May. The Russians have a right to be upset that PM May cancelled Boris Johnson’s trip to Moscow three times , then turned on him and screamed and abused him in the media.
Putin showed good will by giving Boris an open invititation to visit Moscow to discuss his 2016 pleace plan. The invitation was an olive branch for peace. If Boris had been allowed to quietly go through the plan in depth with President Putin, who knows what would have transpired. When May blocked the trip for the third time, the Russians, who unleashed their fury in the media, had every right to feel upset. Boris certainly did. Continue reading
It was a huge step forward for peace that Prez. Putin was keen to discus the Foreign Secretary’s 2016 Syrian peace plan, and he generously offered Boris an open invitation to visit Moscow. Tragically, in an attempt to undermine Boris, May blocked the trip three times.
Boris was then accused of ducking his meeting with the Russians. The G7 inititative was an afterthought to retrieve the situation, but Remoaner members of course, didn’t go for it.
The abusive articles in yesterday’s papers were unprecedented, with Adam Boulton, a SKY Remoaner and Simon Walters of the Remoaner Mail on Sunday sinking to the sleaziest depths in jeers and name calling. Continue reading
