    Nicky Morgan once said she would refuse to serve in a Boris Johnson government. She was an outspoken critic of a no-deal Brexit, one of 14 Tories to vote against it.
    She called proroguing parliament madness and swore to actively campaign against anyone who voted against the withdrawal agreement.
    Now, she’s the culture secretary who believes in Brexit whatever the cost.

    Nicky Morgan is literally one of the biggest idiots in politics, it’s embarrassing to think that this individual has any say in running this country . Fingers crossed she leaves politics soon and seeks a more suitable role at Sainsbury’s as a checkout assistant

    The British people are intelligent enough to recognise that the remain media are trying to push this pathetic allegation of sexual harassment to try to defraud the electorate of their vote. I would be of the opinion that any sexual harassment would be reported at the time and not 20 yrs later to try to influence public opinion. I fully expect that other allegations will be made as the remain camp will sink to any level to try to subvert a democratic vote. No doubt some halfwit will come up with a fanciful story that the PM was involved in the start of the 2 nd world war or the murder of president Kennedy. Any person who believes this type of story is a fool it is so blatantly obvious that no one could take this as a serious complaint. The same tactic was attempted by Christine blasey Ford in the USA in a corrupt attempt to destroy a decent mans man's character it failed as well. Most people are not stupid enough to believe that are being fooled by the media who are hell bent on ignoring their own people's vote. A lot of remain voters are now beginning to realise that democracy has to be honoured and lies told by the remain camp are now coming to light. Herr Guy Verhofstat is beginning to take in the same way as Adolf Hitler and people can see what he is spouting.

    An English man refused employment by employment agency omega why? He was told he now needs a passport which he didn't have even though he had previously been employed by the agency this year the job was given to a polish woman omega employment is the largest employer of polish people in Gloucester and i believe is now polish owned raceism this is white british man refused work in favour by a polish advisor who then gave the job to her fellow countryman or woman in this case what does this mean for people of colour Boris? Gloucester is a conservative seat

    This is the exact same kind of interviewing that was called out in the infamous Cathy Newman interview; using people's previous comments and statements to back them into a corner where the only option is to slander your colleague and/or seemingly contradict yourself. Ultimately, using black and white questioning in an attempt to either strawman the argument made or destroy one's perceived character and hence, incorrectly, reduce their position on the matter. British journalism is rife with this kind of questioning. Not that Nicky Morgan isn't doing her utmost best to avoid answering genuine questions also.

    Another Brexit Bashing Corporation muppet. Why doesn't the BBC report on the surrender act that denies no deal. If the EU know we can't leave without a deal, then all they have to do, is not to give us one, and we wont be able to leave. Disgraceful act designed to deny 17.4 m people
