    Ok I'm no Tory supporter, not a Blairite, not a UKIP supporter, and I'm no Remoaner either and that's my cards on the table, so I'm no Boris Johnson fan but to be fair to the guy and yes he doesn't answer much questions with a straight answer but wasn't Jeremy Hunt a little too much on the offensive and wasn't he the one interrupting Johnson soo much? again I know Johnson is quite the windbag and doesn't give straight answers to any questions but I feel Hunt was too much on the offensive against Johnson. am I wrong? thoughts anyone?

    From all the way across the Atlantic in the USA, Hunt looks, speaks, acts and lies just like the failed and disgraced Traitorous Theresa May...just more of the same without the statement jewelry and leopard shoes.🇺🇸. Boris for Prime Minister.

  • TruthInAComment. YUP.

    Boris is right. The EU hate us. We voted to leave and they despise us for this. This is why they are purposely dragging it on so we keep paying their bill. If we get a worm like Jeremy Hunt the EU will smell weakness and drag him along like Theresa May. We need Boris. A man with a deadline. A man to look them in the eyes, a man with guts and passion.

    Wake up UK, this will change ABSOLUTELY nothing. You have to change the rotten political system, not just faces or genders. The ugly Tories, liars, cheats and corrupt. The Tories have voted against the NHS, social housing, benefits for out of work people, workers rights, etc.

    Boris is the International System of Units In the Laughing Stock of diplomatic embarrassment and catastrophic governing (metric system).

    The debate was a mess... Why can't Boris Johnson just shut up when it's time for another person to talk instead of taunting him like a child. He completely ingnored the moderator either and didn't really answer the question. Well~ just watched the first 17 minutes, can't bear to watch the rest.

    i am from America and a complete Conservative. I generally am able to discern who is a better choice, IF I were making the choice off this one debate which isn't a good idea on its own, I would pick the gentleman with the dark hair. I am only going on what I am seeing. I don't know who they are but I am able to see who is blowing smoke up the hind quarters and that is Boris.

    More than 1 third world immigrant per MINUTE coming in and the majority will be muslims with their families to follow, you can easily put a figure on that of 20,000 plus per week. Thats not immigration, that is suicide. Estimation is that we will be a muslim country by 2050

    People complaining about lower income tax on corporations are so dumb. It's literally better for everyone. Businesses don't come to or stay in the UK out of loyalty, they're here to make money, and if they're making money you're getting jobs.

    • Barnaby Brown
      Barnaby Brown 2 days ago

      @kasegi Yabu Labour just says what they think people want to hear, not what's good for the county. I'd honestly rather see the conservatives in again before them, and that's saying a lot...

    • kasegi Yabu
      kasegi Yabu 2 days ago

      Agreed. Upping the tax will hurt only those businesses that aren't large enough to move their profits overseas. It's the large corporations who aren't paying their share, and they are the ones who can avoid any level of tax. Labour not thinking it through, again.

    • Barnaby Brown
      Barnaby Brown 2 days ago

      I agree, its a balance. But upping it to 25% like Labout wants to I don't feel is an appropriate response.

    • kasegi Yabu
      kasegi Yabu 2 days ago

      However, if these corporations don't pay enough tax, they're not contributing to the infrastructure that is necessary for them to trade.

    Can't she at least give the same amount of time to Boris that she gave to Jeremy. At least let them both answer the question to full extent possible. But she is interrupting Boris on every answer that he tries to give. What kind of debate is that. I swear to god I'm gonna boycott mainstream media channel. Totally unfair propaganda only favouring the person that they like the most.

    I am surprised @Boris Johnson - you haven't answered any of the question to the point. You kept lengthening and twisting all of your so called answers. Jeremy Hunt was way smarter than you in this regard. Probably you are not the people's leader Mr Boris
