'How was I supposed to know that the bull I let loose right in front of me would kick me in the face, even though I picked them expressly for the purpose of kicking people in the face?'



Some of the faithful are hoping that Boris can "get his mojo back." Quite what they mean is difficult to discern. I remember him more with comb and paper, playing a tune to small sycophantic audiences at various Tory Conference fringe meetings. Laughing at the "piccannies with watermelon smiles" in Commonwealth countries as they greeted the Queen, cracking the joke about rebuilding Libya (after RAF bombing) "once we clear away the dead bodies", the Muslim women who "look like letter-boxes", the non-existent EU directives demanding one size condoms and straight bananas. The man with an unspecified number of "love children" condemning the offspring of single mothers, the man sacked twice for lying.

Lo and behold, as PM he seeks now to break International Law to amend a Deal be himself negotiated which he now sees as inadequate for purpose, this with those he calls "our friends and partners across the channel". Well, surprise surprise!

And of course we hear each week or so the rumblings of a "Tory Revolt". The "threat" of such are frequent but come to nothing. Much like Boris himself, threatening to "lay down in front of the bulldozers" to prevent a third Heathrow runway, who then actually fled the country to avoid voting against the Government when the Bill was passed! (Of course, he is now off the hook with that one - Heathrow not even needing one runway at full capacity these days)

London Transport: They're doing it right.




This appeared on the main concourse of the Circle Line at Victoria Station this morning.

A culprit has not been identified.

I suspect nobody is looking very hard for one.

The UK Government has now voted NOT to legally protect current food standards, thus opening the way to breaking yet another promise.

Boris Johnson has told the UK to "prepare for a No Deal" Brexit.

And so the "easiest deal in history" (which helped win the Referendum) became the "Oven Ready Deal" (which helped win the General Election) has now become........

Boris Johnson stomped out of the summit meeting in Brussels this afternoon in a hissy fit of epic proportions. His last words to the press were that if the EU want further discussions, they're going to have to come to him in London.

And this man is leading our country. Does it get more infantile than that..?

Ah, Jennifer, but the EU "have not negotiated in good faith." Boris (who has reneged on the Deal he signed with them last year) has told us so!

You're right. The dastardly evil empire have bloody mindedly refused to be a party to his criminal activities.

Like, how does the EU expect a criminal to run his country when the people he's trying to lie to keep seeing through him..?

Apparently there is new game being anticipated in Kent next year. You leave your lorry in the 7000 lorry car park then come back and try to find it. It's called TRUCK & TRACE.

Kent is rebelling. A petition has been started with Kent County Council to name the huge lorry park being built on what used to be green fields.

The proposition is to name it: "The Nigel Farage Lorry Park" because he was the person who started all this in the first place, and Kent residents now think this monument to crass stupidity, utter mismanagement and sheer incompetence should be named appropriately.

I can think of no better legacy for Farage to be remembered by.

Yes, apparently there is a petition circulating which started as a joke but has now got thousands of signatures.

Another suggestion is The Farage Garage.

I'm guessing this is in reaction to the expected backups at border crossings?

Yes, Kent is the entry point for the Channel Tunnel. Deal or No Deal a pile up is expected. But the extra 50,000 pen pushers employed (admitted by the Govt in the Commons) are ready and waiting to do their bit.

Other news is that Boris Johnson is considering resigning next year "once he has seen through Brexit" as he cannot make ends meet on his £150,000 salary. He sees Theresa May (the UK's last failure in leadership) earning a million a year on the After Dinner Speech Circuit and fancies his chances. Of course, Boris is paying huge amounts of maintenance payments for an unspecified number of "love children" and divorce settlements, so definitely needs extra cash from somewhere. Maybe a whip round for him down at the Labour Exchange?

If I didn't laugh I would cry.
