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 outclassed by Boris so descends to undermining

Several articles in the Mail on Sunday and in the Sunday Times, including one by the normally accurate Adam Boulton, omit such fundamental. facts that they can only be regarded as stitch up/hatchet jobs.

The facts  ignored are these.  When Boris Johnson met various US top aides of Donald Trump, he was described as “brilliant” by one of these aides and his meetings were exceptionally successful. The independent thinking of our Foreign Secretay was well received. Continue reading

In his strongest speech yet, Boris says Assad is an arch terrorist

Boris Johnson’s view on how to achieve peace in Syria has never wavered and his latest speech is stronger than ever.  He has held this view since 2016, and below,  in the Sunday Telegraph today, he explains exactly he believes this is the way forward.

Boris begins:   “It is in some ways bizarre that Bashar al-Assad should be so reckless. It seems mystifying that he should now raise the stakes by so blatantly murdering so many of his own people with chemical weapons. Indeed, there is a sense in which it would frankly be more convenient for the outside world to pretend that it did not happen.  Continue reading

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 “humbled” by the compassion of nearby countries who take in Syrians

When Anna Soubry visited Jordan, she discovered that Syrians did not, as Owen Jones is continually insisting,  want to be taken hundreds of miles to a strange land, to be “taken in.”  As Anna movingly described, “All they want is to go home.”  But right now of course they can’t do that. Continue reading
