Thread: Boris Johnson

  1. #1

    Boris Johnson

    Seems as though the idiot has unwittingly condemned a British mother to 5 years in an Iranian jail.
    Poor woman, likely to miss the majority of her children growing up too.

    If that does manifest itself then surely there would be no way back for Boris?

    ps - no way back from where ?

    I'll give it 24 hours before it is smoothed over.

    Hopefully it does get sorted out.
    If she gets a longer sentence due to his incompetence then he should lose his job imo.

    All Govts are inept if you look deeply enough for a reason, it's the macro stuff you need to consider not the micro stuff.

    He's said something which he thought would mitigate the situation - and it's been taken the wrong way.
    If it was John Prescott you'd be saying John will be John, just as the Tories are probably saying Borris will be Borris etc.

    In reality it's played out well for Iran, we'll probably give them something off the embargoed list that they need and she'll be home for xmas.

    Surprise surprise, Boris is talking to the Commons and not accepting that he was wrong - only that his remarks could have been clearer.

    Emily Thornberry smashed him to pieces.
    Impressed with her in that performance 👏👏

    Re: Boris Johnson

    I'm not sure whether it has just been how I've been watching the news, the pot luck of what I've seen, but there seems to be just be complete chaos in government at the moment.

    Every other news story is something ridiculous.

    Some have said on twitter there is just a vacuum at number 10 currently.

    I think the L Word is justified and accurate in this case - literally incredible.

    We need a cross party group to be formed to manage a successful Brexit - now - as 'this lot' are evidently not up to the job, are losing time, are clueless and deluged with distractions of their own making.
    They are imploding at a time when we need the strength they so clearly lied about possessing.

    The PM is a Liveryman from the Worshipful Company of Marketors, so I am guessing that everything is going according to plan?

    Re: Boris Johnson

    In a word Brexit and Cameron have brought them to this
    If they hadn’t had that stupid referendum then they’d have been reaping benefits of improved economy and I dare say they’d have an increased majority in the 2020 election as 2017 wasn’t planned.
    Gideon would have been PM with a 100
    Seat majority .
    But they thought that the EU was the be all and end ****ing all.
    Thus where we find ourselves today ....

    Re: Boris Johnson

    An hour of waffling from him and when he does “apologise” it’s because his words may have been misconstrued and taken out of context.
    How long is this man going to be allowed to continue to treat the general public like idiots?

    His time will come. He's protected due to his connections, but he will eventually render his position untenable.
    'Saved' by Priti Patel's misdemeanours on this occasion?
    I doubt the Govt will sack two bigwigs at once.

    It's a case of keeping one's enemies close methinks.

    What does being a Freeman of the Marketor Livery Company of the City of London (one of 110 including plumbers and cooks) got to do with the Freemasons, a completely different institution?

    Re: Boris Johnson

    He didn’t even have the decency of apologising for clearly getting his facts wrong. Typical Johnson. He thought he could blag his way through it. Arrogant,lazy and a complete tosser.

    Re: Boris Johnson

    A mistake on his part, but people latching on to it and blowing it out of proportion is where I take issue.

    Iranian state TV have attempted to capitalise on this in an attempt to imprison her for longer: the country with despicable human rights abuses but yet everyone will just blame nasty bad evil Boris for this? Is no-one going to mention the role that Iran has to play in this case?

    I believe there is universal acceptance that what Iran is doing to this woman is wrong. BJ somehow managed to make the situation worse. He’s not some young inexperienced civil servant, he’s the bloody Foreign Secretary for christ sakes.

    Iran is certainly not a place I would travel and Boris certainly isn't someone I would employ to do any sort of important job.

    Re: Boris Johnson

    Johnson is exactly like me in one respect in that he strikes me as having a habit of reading a few pages of an instruction manual, text book, explanation of the circumstances behind an event and thinking he knows all there is to know on the subject. It's a bad habit for someone like me to have, but, in truth, the only person I tend to damage when it happens is myself - it's a bit different when you're a Foreign Secretary with all too obvious designs on the top job.

    You're probably not a British-Iranian citizen like she is, so you probably don't need to go to Iran to visit family.

    I don't think British Irianlans are popular in Iran , and maybe looked on with some suspicion by the Iranian goverment ,who by and large are nice chaps,which has caught us out this time .

    Has it been proved by all doubt that it was a holiday (not trying to be clever this is a real question)

    What are you basing the British-Iranian unpopularity on? This is also a genuine question.
