Sixteen people collared re. use of sarin gas in Syria says Boris


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.

Hampstead and Kilburn must grab the chance to make Claire Louise Leyland an MP

Trained therapist Claire Louise Leyland cared enough to volunteer and go to the Syrian/Turkish border to help distraught Syrian orphans.  That alon gets her my vote.

In politics talk is easy….  it’s what politicians achieve that counts.  If that’s the yardstick picking Claire Louise Leyland as the next MP for Hampstead and Kilburn is a no brainer. As first glance  quiet, modest and shy, Claire Louise has an impressive range of talents, every one of them is linked to service – of people or her country. Continue reading

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
