"Tory MPs will go down with the PM if they wait too long to topple him" Here.
But as I've been saying for a while, the discontent has been rising but we haven't yet reached the point where power is eclipsed by principles.

Not wishing to include your long post in my reply I’ll just explain that it wasn’t someone’s dislike of my using the term I used to describe the French colloquially that disappointed me as much as considering what has been widely accepted for years for the French to be “racist.” which frankly is pathetic. It’s no more racist that Yanks for Americans, Kiwis for New Zealenders or Ozzies for Australians. There are certainly some terms such as Pakis, Chinks, etc which are certainly meant to be offensive and racist, which of course I would never use. Having worked with and lived amongst the French for over 40 years, I respect them hugely as a people and can tell you from 1st hand experience that they do not consider the term to be racist. Indeed, being one of the top 5 companies in France we had first pick of graduates who we used to accommodate at our training centre in London for two weeks each year. We referred to them as tadpoles and they loved it. Indeed, you want to hear some of the labels they have for us, which are equally to be taken in good spirit. I think we all know when a word or term is used as an insult but when we reach the point where that is misinterpreted as in this case, we have gone too far in my humble opinion. In your initial response to me, you recommended me not to be soft. Might that request not have been more relevant to the over sensitive individual who made a point of it in the first place?

So you won't be laughing at Boris Johnson from now on then?
Good to hear that.
I'll still laugh at him though...
...and you as well!
He claims a lot of things. I heard one Tory saying that it was not the time for change because of his role in the war? What role? Posing with Zelensky and signing off a budget - a small budget at that compared to the US and the EU. It's not as if he's actually needed.okocha wrote:He claims the vaccine roll-out...developed by scientists...rolled out by NHS and volunteers...paid for by tax payers; it wasn't developed because he was in No.10, was it?
