Boris Johnson on Today, @BBCr4today: 'People around the world are going 'wow - they've made this incredible decision to go global''. This is certainly not my experience. From US to China to India to SAfrica, people I'm hearing from think we're opting for imperial nostalgia.
Boris Johnson on #r4today says others are looking at Britain and saying "wow, they have made this incredible decision to go global."
Hard to be more wrong. Support for the EU across Europe is at its highest in 35 years. The only leaders who like Brexit are Putin and Trump.
Christ! Boris Johnson on @BBCr4today not acknowledging that going on WTO means tariff barriers pop up to our exporters all over the world...
...and soft-peddles the myth of WTO Article 24 (which we can’t use, btw).
He really is streaming the utter nonsense this morning.
I'm old enough to remember when Boris Johnson expressed pride in Britain's international development budget. It was a few years ago when the lying charlatan was bothering to keep up the pretence of modern compassionate Conservativism
I know it’s Monday morning and you’re possibly already a bit grumpy but if the choice at the next election is between Boris Johnson/Jacob Rees Mogg and Jeremy Corbyn/John McDonnell how are you feeling about that?
Boris Johnson has a hearing problem.
People around the world are not saying "Wow! They've made this incredible decision to go global."
They're saying we've gone stark raving bonkers.
No one should be under any illusions about what the agenda of right-wingers is for the aid budget. Their obscene agenda is to cut it, denying the most vulnerable around the world the vital help that they need. It must be resisted. https://t.co/pvnLUCFphB
To anyone who still has faith in 21st Centuary politics I would say:
The rest of the Tory Party
We need a Corbyn government now.
Duffer at school? Little discernable talent? Tenuous relations with the truth? No sign of empathy or self-awareness? Exaggerated sense of importance? Tricky, either army or politics... Politics, that's it...young chap has all it takes to be a Conservative!
