As a child, I used to love watching the Muppets, I never expected that they’d go on to run the country.

I honestly feel bad for Cameron because it seems since Eton, he was just that academic kid that wanted to be cool while Boris was, and that set the stone for their entire relationship
It's like he finally becomes PM and accomplishes something greater than boris, and then boris is the face of a movement that leads Cameron to resign
And if that's not bad enough, Boris then takes his failed position, has the greatest victory since thatcher and gets done what Cameron didn't even try

It's interesting how they knew each other for 40 years, but my goodness that's a long time to know someone that long.

England's leaders seem to be living in a "Chums" fantasy world where any catastrophe can be fixed in the next episode.

Just watching Boris talk after bunking of work for 5 weeks, and it becomes clear that being a leader or any one in a position of power does not necessarily require any talent, he sounds like an absolute idiot, no oratory skills, waffles on and labours the same point. Above all just does not sound engaging or convincing as a world leader.

I struggle to understand what these people have done in 10 years apart from line the pockets of there friends with tax payers money and assets. Let us not forget 10 years ago we as a country where flourishing now we are an utter mess.

Boris Johnson's second article was "in order to support my Prime Minister and my party, it would be better to say in". Clever sidestep, but BS. What sort of Telegraph article would that be? "Dear Telegraph readers, I hate the EU but I endorse Remain because of party loyalty". That's not an article. That's not an argument. Of course it was more than that. Of course he was always as pro-EU as pro-leave and personal ambition swayed him.

Boris' truck trailer had "vote leave" on it, but was pulled by a truck from the company "Europa".. what a knob

Автор — leuvenlife


hardly any references to their "history"

I think the only reason Johnson did what he did was Cameron dropping more and more hints that he wanted Osbourne as his successor.
