why is Johnson frightened to be interview by Andrew neil

he is supposed to be our leader

how do we expect to get any good deal from other countries if he cannot face one of our own

he is pathetic

Not exactly a purposeful poll is it.
It's a obvs a bias joke toward the Tories, I know, but there are a lot of disenchanted people out here that have little regard for what the Tory party represent and have done ( or not done) over the last 10 years.. I personally know someone that killed themself so it's no joke to me.
The country is divided over so many things it's not getting a nice place to live.

Funny how the majority of the press are ignoring BoJo turning up for the unveiling of the statue of a well known anti-semite and Nazi sympathiser. Just imagine if this was Jeremy Corbyn, would be front page news everywhere:

Am I correct though in the sheer inconsistencies by the UK media though? The tax-dodging billionaire media barons want to keep the Tories in power so they can continue to evade paying tax. It's no coincidence that the Russian oligarchs & various billionaires fund the Tories.

you do not need to scour the pages of anything at all to see where he is prepared to jump onto any bandwagon, yet refuses to put himself and his pathetic gang under scrutiny

see
proroguing illegally
unnecessary queen's speech
refusing to release Russian papers
refusing to release American trade deal discussions papers
refusing to appear before the climate change group (but sent his dad instead)
refusing to appear in front of Andrew Neil
no prompt response to floods in Doncaster
dare not appear in Glasgow or Liverpool

2 prime minister's questions in 4 months
cancelled the budget
refusing to put his leaving bill under proper scrutiny
distracting attention from police cuts by prattling on about harsher sentences
refusal to implement his islamaphobia review until after the election
etc etc etc
if anybody is actually impressed by this behaviour then it shows an incredible level of shallow thinking when the only response is "get brexit done "
and referring to corbyn as anti semitic

That is a very serious allegation.
Are you able to name one such media baron who is evading paying tax.

Viscount Rothmere & Richard Desmond for starters. How is tax evasion an illegal activity? There are also legal ways to screw the UK over. Dodgy schemes, offshore accounts - other immoral ways to avoid paying their fair share. The trouble is that the Tories don't clamp down on this, which is exactly why these guys support the Tories so strongly. Doesn't take a genius to work it out!

If Viscount Rothermere & Richard Desmond read this message board they might have a go at you for libel.
You appear to be confusing tax evasion with tax avoidance. We all pay as little tax as we legally have to.
You seem to be very bitter about people who legally reduce their taxes.
You should be talking to your favoured politicians to get them to do something about it.
You're not going to get anywhere by moaning about it on here.

Tony, that's why I'm not voting Tory. These loopholes & grey areas are allowed to stay as the very people who make the rules are the ones who cash in. Why is it fair that smaller businesses pay more tax than ones turning over billions?

Being legal doesn't make things ok, why do some people accept that the super rich can get away with what everyday people can't? These are the same people who peddle their twisted message to misguided everyday people who vote to keep them in power. These are the same types that ruined the economy during the banking crisis without any repercussions, but we blame the EU, scroungers & immigrants for public services collapsing?

Turkeys voting for Christmas! No other country in the world would keep voting for the upper class to keep the hierarchy going. This is why our living standards have fallen so drastically. Millions of kids in poverty with working parents, things are grim and look like they're going to get worse!

Good question. He'll be voting for the party that can fix the things he is complaining about. I'll be interested to see which party that is.
The "White G Party" perhaps.

It certainly can’t be SNP or Labour, perhaps he thinks slimy Jo can do a job or the Greens or maybe he’s a Brexit party supporter.

Very eloquently put, so I take it you wouldn’t vote for someone like Jeremy Corbyn who has an estimated net wealth of £3 million
