That's it, keep repeating it and place it on as many threads as you can and people might start believing it.

Based on your email address... any relation to Robert by any chance?

You mean you're comfortable with Johnson ignoring Jack Merritt's father's explicit request not to exploit his son's murder for election campaigning? And that our MP continued that on the radio this morning? You're OK with that?
Not answering this one then, Redbuck?

Jack Merritt's Dad has written a piece in the Graun, saying how "Jack would be livid his death has been used to further an agenda of hate".

I heard the interview this morning and it made my stomach churn. Buckland's never been my cup of tea politically but he always struck me as someone who was fundamentally decent, sad to see the depths he's been dragged down to by this PM
.

No not at all but it wasn't unexpected now was it, Tory ministers demanding tougher sentences is not a shock after one of these shocking attacks. To add a bit of the missing balance Corbyn added to the disrespect by making it all about cuts where he can't know the full story yet and can't know that the the whole situation wouldn't have occurred no matter how many support services are available.

Not from Johnson, no, he's already shown how much respect he has for the families of victims of terrorism with his "Fuck the families" comment after 7/7. But I did genuinely expect better from Buckland. Shows how far Johnson has dragged the whole party into the pit. And your blase "Oh well" approach is quite shocking too, tbh, shows that ordinary people are prepared to accept almost any level of shithousing from politicians if they happen to be on their side. It's been rightly said that in a democracy we get the govt we deserve.

UKIP are attempting to top their last comedy leader Dick Brain with the superb Pat Mountain, giving this interview in which she refers to "other racist parties" as she seeks to stake a claim to be the only choice for the hardworking racist in your family

UKIP are surely now just a performance art alternative comedy act aren't they?

I'm surprised, after the revelations that he'd lied to Cameron to get a ministerial gig in the Justice Dept.  This was about his appearance before the Bar Council, and subsequent guilty of misconduct finding. You'd like to think that a Govt law officer would be of unimpeachable character.

Of course, Johnson probably sees a like mind in Buckland hence why he promoted him,  after he showed he was prepared to forget any principles he may have once had. Buckland will probably end up in the Lords.

God yes I'd forgotten about that. Well, I shouldn't have been surprised then, as you say no wonder Johnson likes him

It wasn't a blase `oh well' and I'm not on his or the current Tory MPs side but i cant help if you read it that way.
