I can't believe that the media are dragging this decorating business of the No.10 flat out..... or more to the point that Boris just isn't holding his hand up, owning up to needing a slap on the wrist, cough up the ridiculous money for the ludicrously expensive wall paper, that obviously his slip of a girl friend was in full control of organising !!!!!
It was probably the bargaining chip he gave her for practically ignoring her all last year after having his baby and being stuck up in the rafters of No.10.
Can he ride slip shod over this do you think ? or will it be his downfall ?
Sunny, from the beginning of this fiasco I wondered if all the hoo hah was just a smokescreen. Is Boris trying to cover something up? The are talks relating to trade deals with other countries, it's all been very quiet. Hmm. If it really is about decorating costs then Boris needs to come clean and admit who actually paid the bill. Yes he may have paid now, but that's not the point.
Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.
I am convinced it is a smoke screen, as behind the scenes the trade deals are not turning out to be what we were promised. Fishing is a biggy - only allowed 9% of whats in our own waters, yet other countries catching much more!
I'm out of the loop regarding the news I'm afraid, but heard about the faff over wallpaper. He's got us through Brexit, now covid (more or less) so is this the best labour can find to whine about..expenses. I agree, so much more to be concerned about than wallpaper.
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.
Can anyone remember when the likes of Neil Hamilton and Jonathan Aitken were found out to be liars and cheats in the 90s? In those days, Ministers who were found out to be lying to Parliament were doomed, and were expected to offer their resignation. Calling a politician a liar at that time, could easily, and often did, result in a libel suit.
Johnson is constantly called a liar by the media and other politicians every day it seems, he seems to lie with impunity and never appears to have a conscience or be troubled by it, he just doesn't seem to care, just as he doesn't seem to care about telling the lies in the first place. Trump was the same, politicians lying is not new, but it seems as if they are no longer ashamed to be called out on it.
I think Carrie is probably a bit of a handful...as is Dillon the dog £ 800 a roll wallpaper for Dillon to cock his leg over it, Boris will have a heart attack when that happens
I think Cummings has a lot more dirt to expose SD, and it won't be pleasant.
Did anyone watch 'The Uncivil War' on channel 4? I have just checked and it was on 27th Dec 2018, you can still catch it on the Channel 4 hub...Benedict Cumberbatch played the then little known Cummings and it was about how Cummings manipulated the results of the Brexit referendum using social media....it really is worth a watch, especially in view of what has happened since then and where Cummings finished up.
Will see if I can find that Cj, definitely worth a watch.
The thing with Cummings now, is, has he shot himself in the foot for future posts he may have acquired with major businesses? Who's going to hire him after he's gone to town spilling the beans on Boris ?
Certainly not someone that you can trust? Mind you I don't think that is a term you can use in business at all these days.
