    The lies, falsehoods and misrepresentations of the anti Tories, as an example the lie/falsehood that Andrew Neil called out BoJo’s ‘cowardice’?.

    I have listened, but not heard ‘cowardice’ being mentioned- apologies if I missed it.

     

    Bigotry Folks is a double edged sword

    And please don’t just take me at my word

    Read the responses of some on this Forum

    Responses sometimes lacking decorum

    Bigotry seems to flow with such ease

    Yet they accuse others of bigotry if you please

    Bigotry & trolling appear to go so easily together

    Lies & exaggeration yes,  ‘truth’ hardly ever

    Lots of insults and political hype

    Help us mere mortals to recognise the type

    But sticks and stones for us hold no fear

    And to all on here, bigots as well,Merry Christmas and  a very Happy New Year

    i will lay odds the spin doctors have been number crunching the whole time calculating wether they will take a bigger hit by avoiding neil or if they let boris get grilled.

    given how the others got gutted by neil i reckon the safest thing is to hide boris in a round of photo ops as he doesnt perform well off the cuff and even at times cocks up set piece events.

    he can get away with a bit of buffoonary out and about, in a studio with neil badgering him it wont be pretty.

    Imagine how the interviewers who got an interview with BJ feel. They must feel that they are a soft touch.

    Brilliant piece of work by Neil, he has thrown the gauntlet down, let’s see if BJ is man enough to pick it up.

    My money is on BJ avoiding it cowering in the shadows like a child who is scared of the dark.

    Sorry Brydo, but your credibility in my eyes (only over this election btw ) has been terminally damaged-

    My point was that you constantly accuse BoJo of lying, and yet you have done the very same thing  – you gave the impression that Andrew Neil called BoJo a coward , or at least, that Neil had indicated that BoJo not yet agreeing to a date for an interview was cowardice!

    That was a falsehood and very definitely a misrepresentation of what  Neil said, ie  that he called or indicated that  BoJo was a coward, and was for impact – truth has been lost.

    For clarity, I have just watched Andrew Neil again, and nowhere did he mention ‘cowardice’!

    What he did however, was tell BoJo which questions he would ask him ( he actually listed them if you listen again to Neil ) giving him time to prepare his answers, so, BoJo’s team will be working hard on the answers ready the eventual interview, next week probably?

    That’s my last comment on any political post!

    The fact remains that. Boris or rather his team is stopping him for appearing. Why would they do that? because Boris can not manage such a grilling. He will babel on as he does with incoherent nonsense. If Boris can not undertake this, then how on earth will he cope as a leader dealing with other world leaders.

    Accountable boris is not.

    It’s not been a good day for BJ first joss and myself call him out then John Major tells Tory voters to vote for former Tory  MPs now standing as independants.

    Not sure what’s worse lol.

    Andrew Neil has grilled the other party leaders about politics, both past and present. Johnson is different.

    He has a number of serious personal character flaws that have been exposed over the past few years. Due to his effervescent personality and ‘cheeky chappy’ persona he has bounced back with teflon like non stickability.

    Neil sees an opportunity to confront the person not the politics this time, and Boris is clearly being advised to steer clear of this interview.
