The GMB Boris car crash interview of Susanna Reid and blundering Ben


Yesterday’s interview with Boris Johnson was a trainwreck for Susanna Reid and Ben Shepherd, they got every fact wrong. Come back Piers Morgan, unlike Susanna, he researches his interviews first. Fancy not looking up the meaning of mugwump!Boris clearly appalled at the level of intellect of Reid/Ben, turned to satire, but bemused Reid couldn’t tell the difference. It was all about the interviewers trying to look good, they made inaccurate statements then rushed on, clearly not interested in the answers. Continue reading

The comments the Sun refused to print! Bad bad boys……

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

May’s unprincipled behavour is enabled by the MSM

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.

It doesn’t have to be this way, Boris Johnson tells Putin

The heart breaking truth is that the war will continue and more Syrian men, women and little children will die in a war that has lasted over six year, unless there is a major change.

Dismayed at the Russian decision to veto a UN resolution condemning last week’s chemical weapons attack in Syria,  Boris Johnson told the Russians they could be a lifeline for Assad’s murderous regime. Continue reading

Theresa May wrecks chance of peace in Syria

In today’s City AM,  No. 10 quoted as saying “a chance exists of making progress towards a lasting peace in Syria!”  Oh good!  The penny has finally dropped then.  The trouble is, May herself has wrecked that chance by an ill timed and fatal intervention.

Boris Johnson is the only politician who actually has a strategy for peace in Syria. He worked it out in 2016.   Putin had caught wind of that strategy, so issued an open invitation to visit whenever Boris wanted. Continue reading

Boris Johnson grabs the ear of the Russian bear

The  suffering in Syria and the Ukraine is still so terrible,  a face to face exchange of views has been judged the best way to progress the situation. Foreign Secretary borischurchill3Boris Johnson will therefore be taking up FM Lavrov’s invitation to visit Russia. No Foreign Secretary has visited Russia for five years, but this visit will certainly not be a resumption of the status quo. Boris had only been Foreign Secretary for a couple of months when he was thrown in at the deep end over Syria.  Continue reading
