    Typical politician, never answers questions put to them. However, I do have a glimmer of hope with this one, regarding Brexit.

    Boris should wake up, he's the Prime Minister but needs a few more lessons in integrity, honour and a need to put the Country before the brexit farce.

    Well the rain is uncontrollable, like wind and snow. Of cause it Boris’s fault that flood have effected so many. Labour will say lets look at what the Tories are spending and add 50%, like they seem to be doing on everything. The 50% was just a made up figure just demonstrate what they seem to be doing. And to say they would get Brexit done’ is utter rubbish. They want a customs union deal which is remain fully connected. How’s that Brexit.

      brexit's a scam.
      The EU might be flawed but it's not as flawed as Cameron's foolhardy attempt to shut up the ERG in the Tory Party, and send the UK into the Twilight zone. Four years of brexit and no idea of how to make it work. Because they can't, but that was apparent at the start for open-minded people.

    Why do stupid (in my opinion) journalists want to to blame humans in government positions for natural disasters that are out of the realm of what humans want to pay for the protection against these natural disasters? I have this growing opinion that journalists are kind of really stupid, if one actually hears their questions. My experience and sense is that journalism as a major in college is the last and lowest one with students can matriculate. God bless.

    Boris on his PM speech ridiculed a British fishing law, said it was EU law but it has nothing whatsoever to do with the EU. The audience of dumb naïve brexiteers even give him a standing ovation.

      Most laws passed are EU laws disguised as British law. This looks like a slip-up from Boris.

    I dont support the Brexit party either. To be honest with you I dont know who to vote next month it's all a sham no true leaders in this country no more who could get us out of this misery. The worst ever situation this nation could ever be blame it all on David Cameron who started this referendum in Brexit.

      It's not easy for any government to be fair but brexit is a small part of it all . The voters need to look at more wider social issues like poverty the health and social care crisis . I'm a parent carer to a severly disabled child from my point of the conservatives have done more damage to support services for the vulnerable that anyone . I'm not voting for or against brexit I'm voting for our children's and there childrens future if that makes sense I'm going to go with the party that will protect there human rights and to me that isn't conservative independent or brexit party's so the other options r where I will go do some research u will find who aligns with ur morals . Wishes extra x

    • Zara Khan
      Zara Khan 23 days ago +3

      Jessica Holt thanks for your inspiration. You're right. I'd rather vote for someone that supports health matters NHS, and the vulnerable nation rather than Brexit . We are a divided nation right now cant understand why some people drawn to leave the EU and whether they understand the implications of this indigenous movement (Brexit).Boris should be supporting the mis fortunate people that have loss their homes in this Country due to floods and rebuild their lives and making further investigations how to resolve these issues so it doesnt occur again but no Boris is up his Jack seat with this Brexit doesnt seem to care what happens to folks just wants our votes best regards ; )

    • Jessica Holt
      Jessica Holt 23 days ago +3

      Try labour or green party the lesser of the evils what people don't see unless you live it is the effect on the vulnerable and the poor medication shortages (fact were living it ) for medication that keeps people alive , schools falling to bits the NHS falling to bits all because of a long conservative reign. ;) .

    Sloppy comments and sloppy government policies wont get you anywhere Boris too bad your brother left you in a ditch shows what a sham you really are. Youre playing games with people's lives. Brexit is unworkable in this country. I wish the nation could just wake up and smell the coffee and not vote you to be the next Prine Minister and not vote for your policies before it's too late.
