    Knew of him, and used to work in Chorley myself, but I'd never heard his voice until he was on the radio news last night. Blimey, I thought, with that accent he must be from Bolton. No, turns out he's from Adlington! Seems like a decent bloke anyway.

      In other words, you hope he can tolerate lies, the breaking and abuse of rules, and more lies?
      I’ll bet my life you are a Brexiteer who doesn’t care that the Leave campaign broke the rules and Boris lied, so long as you get your hard WTO rules Brexit. Am I correct?

      @Mark Gable He did vote leave

    • Mark Gable
      Mark Gable 7 days ago

      @Monotone You're easily misled it seems. It wasn't an election. It was a referendum. Over 400 constituencies voted leave. Jacob Rees Mogg constituency voted remain . Lol.

    • Monotone
      Monotone 7 days ago

      @Mark Gable Apart from the upper class Old Etonians who stand to gain the most from the us leaving the EU. It's working class labour voters in towns with big EU development grants and subsidised farmers in the country who stand to lose the most.

    • Mark Gable
      Mark Gable 7 days ago

      @Monotone Incorrect. It was mainly tradditional working class Labour voters that voted overwhelmly leave.. Most of Parliament have gone against the voters.
