Thoughts on this? No smoke without fire does come to mind but surely he hasn't been stupid enough to make such a comment... Mental if true. 

Boris is the Tory Foreign Secretary who said "fuck business" when they were lobbying for a softer Brexit back in the day, he's prone to using overblown language so who knows? 

Lotta enquiries going on at the moment :rolleyes: and it seems to have the Tories a little bit rattled as they are all giving identical replies, the problem for us lefties is the criticism is all coming from outside the tent at the moment, unless one of the insiders (Gove?) delivers the fatal blow it's all destined for wrapping tomorrow's fish suppers - as us oldies say! :spud5

******************

Both BBC and ITV quoting "sources" saying BJ did make the alleged remark, with Peston on ITV also saying Cummings is not the "chatty rat".

They've been taking an absolute battering today on the BBC, will be interesting to see any impacts in the upcoming elections or if it'll be water off a ducks back... To use another one.

Oh, so you're joining in the game now - typical intervention from a lying, racist, sociopath, self declared "smartest man on the forum" and economic illiterate (you can't have a Scandinavian society on UK taxes and you branded proposals to fund this by the Greens as ridiculous) - let the fun continue! :death

None of that changes the fact that you are a plastic lefty bud.

It's easy to be a hand-wringing left winger from the comfort of your armchair.

I have no issue with genuine left wingers. I don't agree with their viewpoints but I respect them. Plastic lefties like you on the other hand, are another kettle of fish.

What's the differences in your view of a "plastic" and a "genuine" left winger?¬†ūü§∑‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹ

Peter Weir, for example? I should hope not...

Go on then, apart from one being a footballer, what's your definition of the difference between the two?

ETA - where's the popcorn when you really need it?

WTF are you wittering on about? :huh:

What does this have to do with plastic lefties?

One of them has genuinely held beliefs. The other has superficial beliefs. You can spot them a mile away. Endless virtue signalling is one classic way of spotting them for example.

Does this person constantly refer to people who don't share his view as being cunts or morally repugnant in some way? The inference being that he himself is somehow holding a virtuous viewpoint rather than just a viewpoint.

People who routinely call other people morally repugnant need closely watching and kept away from any position of power and influence. You shouldn't trust them. I remember the champagne socialists of the 80's and 90's as great examples of this. Bud the Baker is of this sort of hypocritical, fake tradition.

I'm surprised you have to ask this TBH.

Latest NRS stats and I’ve updated my chart

As I predicted when the ‚Äúsecond wave‚ÄĚ began, the red and blue lines would meet again at¬†the end of the pandemic.¬†

Vastly overstated covid deaths during the winter.

 

Wow!  That's a wonderful piece of news.

So it's not only "are we nearly there yet?".  It is all over!!!

No tapering.  No more waves, no more rando outbreaks sporadically hitting parts of the country, no more spikes in Government stats, no more over crowded hospitals with over-worked staff trying to keep people alive.    We are at the end of all that, according our in-house denier.  No more covid and its variants...

 

Yippeee!!!!!:clapping:clapping:clapping

 I'm really relieved that we'll...

....no longer be bludgeoned by so many irrelevant graphs from the great persecutor of us middle class lefties.  What a sheer relief.  :)

I had a sneaking suspicion of what you meant, I asked because I wanted to confirm. Felt I would likely disagree with you, I do. 
 

Claims of ‚Äėvirtue signalling‚Äô is often a deflection IMO. Some peoples views are just morally bankrupt & calling that out in public discussions is understandable.¬†

You okay, h*n?

There you go, some plastic sympathy from a Peter Weir.

Of course I'm OK. We won on Monday night and I had a great night's sleep. I've had my first covid jab with a second due in a few weeks. Covid restrictions are being removed and life is returning to normal. Why would I not be OK? :D

I have no idea what you mean by bringing up Peter Weir but I'm sure that after a few coffees this morning I'll get over it. :whistle

Life is awesome. For all the difficulties people face in life in this country (and all the many, and seemingly endless, problems still needing resolved), there's never been a better time in the entire history of mankind to be alive right now in this part of the world. I genuinely wish more people like you could take a step back, get a little perspective and appreciate that a bit more.

Well now ain't that a whopper and from the self declared "Smartest Guy on the Forum" too!

You're the guy who labelled the Green Party's (the most left wing party in Scotland with MSPs) tax plans "ridiculous" hardly showing respect, "excessive" would have made the same point but been respectful at the same time - but a lack of self-awareness has always been one of your noticeable personality traits.

You show little respect to anyone and deserve none in return, you bullied IOBS off the forum - however I admit to being indebted for the the phrase "morally repugnant" as it's a perfect fit for you.
