You are right almost half the electorate voted to remain, and quite a few were stupid enough to vote for Corbyn
What do you make of Johnson cosying with the Saudis to increase defence sales? This is despite knowing these weapons will be use in terrorism attacks against Yemen.

Meanwhile Corbyn gets called a terrorist sympathiser, despite spending his political career as a peace-maker & being on the right side of all the military mistakes of the UK's recent past?

Corbyn being photographed with terrorists during peace talks, followed by newspapers twisting the story is a distortion of the truth. Johnson on the other hand is actively working with known terrorists, funders for ISIS & with brutal human rights. What makes this ok??? Is it the media slant? Is it the money involved?

The biggest laugh is that you couldn't probably name one thing that Boris has got right since he was elected. Everything has turned into a complete disaster & he's been regularly humiliated due to his incompetence. Let's focus on what's actually happening, not hypothetical situations. All the arguments for Boris are being proved wrong in front of our very eyes, I'm sorry but it's indefensible!

Just one thing, appointing the next Prime Minister of the UK as Chancellor of the Exchequer,

Eh? So the next Prime Minister will also be Chancellor of the Exchequer?

So this government have done nothing commendable other than to appoint sunak as chancellor?

I think that is what you are saying? Are we agreed on that?

I'm intrigued what these 'several' other things are too. Please share.

So far, we've got - he's appointed a good chancellor. If that's top, the rest could be pretty thin...

No. That was a disaster. Far too many people having no idea what they were voting for. Even years after the event, several 'top' politicians didn't understand the full impact; so what chance did Joe Public have?

Next.

so just to recap,

someone who thinks the tories are really good believes that the best deeds they have performed in the last ten years are:-

1) to have appointed a man as chancellor who is overseeing the highest level of debt that this country has ever had, and as yet is utterly unproven as to how he is going to manage the economy in the next few years

2) to have adopted a policy, of which the architect now fully regrets having implemented the policy and which in any case was

a copy of an old labour policy from 1975


and nobody can tell us what other really good deeds the government have performed in the last ten years.

in the meantime we have had 10 years of policy driven austerity, and as a result were badly prepared to cope with an epidemic , and actions since the start of the epidemic have exacerbated both the health crisis and also the economic crisis


but at least theres been lots of slogans to help

2) to have adopted a policy, of which the architect now fully regrets having implemented the policy and which in any case was

Austerity for ten years brought about by a wasteful Labour government, it was almost paid back when the Chinese decided to inflict Covid 19 on the world

but at least theres been lots of slogans to help nothing wrong with a good slogan, just think of Kinnock’s Things can only get better

Just like Johnson

Cannot argue the point so tries diversion and whatiffery


Why not tell us the good points of the last ten tory years?


Or have you done so already ?

and all we have to look forward is lies diversions slogans bluster and paying for the incompetence of the last four months

This is good leadership?

Does anybody think the tories are doing a good job?

There’s no pleasing you is there, because of the Tories we were spared the ignominy of having a Muslim embracing, unionist breaking IRA lover, that is worth ten years of any government. We would probably have had a woman who couldn’t count as Chancellor. Nothing anyone can say will placate your twisted view of Johnson and Cummings. Just be assured that it would have been a damn sight worse with Corbyn at the helm. How on earth Labour thought they could win an election led by him. Starmer is equally as clueless but at least he’s a bit nearer the centre, so may appease some of the Blairites.
