This is why Boris's word are cheap....



He believes in Brexit as much as I do, but his backers want us out of the EU so they can either profit from it, keep their tax affairs hidden, or both.

It just fills me with despair when I see people lapping up what he says as the truth when he's a proven liar, I even saw him referred to as 'Lionheart' on a BBC HYS comment, it and he is a joke. :wall:

Boris Johnson is under fire for failing to provide details of his contacts with US businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri to a London Assembly inquiry.

The PM responded to the assembly's request for information on Tuesday.
But the assembly said the letter it received - marked "confidential and not for publication" - did not answer any of its questions.

Mr Johnson denies claims of a conflict of interest over his friendship with Ms Arcuri when he was London mayor.

The assembly had asked for details and a timeline of all contact between the pair, including private text messages and emails.

A London Assembly spokeswoman told the BBC the letter "doesn't answer any of the questions we asked", adding: "I can't understand why it is labelled confidential."

In a statement, Len Duvall, Labour chairman of the committee, said: "We did finally receive a response from Boris Johnson, through his solicitors, which they have indicated may not be published. At this stage we are respecting that, but we are seeking further clarification.
Nothing in the response, in our opinion, reflects the need for confidentiality. In fact, the response is insufficient as far as our request for information is concerned.

...although I think your last sentence is pretty unpleasant. Feelings are running so high and this thread has really become quite unnecessarily nasty.

Apologies Mig-Eater, but by labelling someone a terrorist, as bad an accusation as it is, it affords a cognitive agility and coherence to Thomas Mair, in this case, which he didn't possess. He was what used to be termed care in the community.
Hope that explains my point.

For Nigel Farage to then declare that the referendum was won without a shot being fired was beyond douchey. Even in normal circumstances you don’t say stuff like that. If I can use an crap analogy, you don’t say “the football match was won without us blowing up another football club!” Well, yeah, sure, but why would someone ever need to say that, anyway? It would be especially douchey if it was said less than a week after a fan of that club, regardless of the other fans denouncing him (not nearly quickly or loudly enough, I might add) did just that act whilst shouting some of the clubs more toxic slogans. And instead of the fans saying the obvious “boy this nut-job took all our vociferous Facebook memes and propaganda seriously and killed someone. Perhaps we ought to tone this down” and instead started talking about stupid tinfoil hat conspiracies.

Whilst the referendum wasn’t part of the case to prove his guilt (because they didn’t need to):

I hope your gratitude is sincere, because my concern was! This is a forum where we all share a common interest, and I hope that we could all share a table at a pub, or space on crowd line together and have a good time, but it worries me when political disagreement does get into the realms of personal insult.

I didn't mock calls to tone down language in parliament, I criticised it. I think there was some deliberate attempts to misinterpret combative metaphors for actual violent language. I don't think there was any disrespect or rudeness intended.

With regard to this forum - debate is utterly, utterly pointless if either side has no respect for the other, and I honestly feel as though the vast majority of posts are screams of rage into oblivion that will ultimately do nothing useful, for anyone.

Nobody has ever changed anybodies mind by brute force. The only way we will get anywhere is by trying to understand each other a bit more, which I have wholeheartedly tried to - and I hope it is clear that I have been happy to concede some points (it almost always seems to be to Paul Reflex, incidentally). I am not so proud.

Nevertheless, I have my views. They are different from almost everybody I know (although, somehow leave still won - despite seemingly nobody wanting to admit to having voted that way) - but my views are real, sincere and important to me.

For the, what, the fourth time? It matters not a single molecule of a jot what you “think” versus what the law is.

I’m not arguing about the IRA, or Sirhan Sirhan, or Lee Harvey Oswald or whomever else. Your whataboutery is uninsightful, undignified and uninspiring as a position.

Mair was considered by the courts as a terrorist. That’s all. You can argue about whether the law was wrong with me in a different thread, but the courts convicted him of murder and treated him as a terrorist. Therefore, he’s a terrorist. Again, I knew that some Brexiteers didn’t really respect the law and courts as of late, but this is beginning to get tiresome.

Here, from the CPS - talking about Schedule 2 of the Counter Terrorism Act:

...the killings of Lee Rigby and Jo Cox MP were charged as murder but both amounted to a terrorism offence and those responsible for the 21/7 bombings were charged with conspiracy to cause explosions, which also amounted to terrorism offences. In all of these cases those convicted are considered terrorists


If the courts have considered him to be a terrorist, then unless there’s some sort of exoneration or retrospective change in the law, then that’s what he is. Regardless of your own personal views of what does and does not constitute one.

All your stupid “lefties are the *real* terrorists” rhetoric or whatever the point you’re trying to make melts in the face of objective truth.

What happened here is that you said something, you were found and proven to be wrong, but you’re to embarrassed or insecure to admit that you were wrong, and so you doubled down on your nonsense and drove your logic straight into the ground. And I’ve had to pick it all apart to show you how wrong you are, and I hasten to add that I haven’t needed to resort to irrelevant and crappy personal insults to do so.

Not a matter of being woke. You are welcome to make your point, and god forbid disagree, but can make it without accusing someone of being demented.
As for reading his posts, I have done. One could argue that you either rise to his bait, or responding in order to troll. Maybe if you took a more 'frankly my dear, I don't give damn!' attitude to his posts and ignored them you wouldn't be outraged enough to roll out the tired old trope about people being too offended or too woke in the same response.

That is, after all, what this topic is supposed to be about, despite FB's repeated attempts to turn it into anything but.
If he wants to have a discussion on who is or isn't a terrorist, who is or isn't left/right-wing, who is or isn't Marxist/Stalinist/Communist/NAZI/ or whatever, then start another bloody topic ( or several topics ) instead.

Again.....this is the BREXIT topic.

Rockford,

There are a lot of implied remarks on here which I'll admit I approach quite directly then find someone like you questioning my choice of words again. But you picked on one word which I applied in more general terms referring to how easily people take offence at verbal discourse. You admittedly did not use the term outraged, I did, to highlight knee jerk instant offence. So, if you weren't offended by my post to Tommy, why did you take me to task, albeit politely. There are a lot of semantics and negative word play on here, as I've have said before, I'd happily put my point on one and not spend the next three pages engaged in a running series of back and forth insults. As you said, I shouldn't rise to Tommy's bait! Just what does that say about Tommy?
