Thread Name: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
"Johnson has behaved comically, making a complete fool of himself in Europe,"
I think it is a mistake in ignoring what Johnson is actually doing here Steve
I believe he is deliberately creating for himself the image of the champion of the people leading the fight against the foreign interlopers
I watched the one-man press conference yesterday and was struck by the articulate dignity of Bettel who, instead of slating Johnson, just pointed out his cowardly absence from an vitally important opportunity to publicly put the case for leaving Europe - a total betrayal of the British people fot sake of self-promotion
The Brexiteers and their media lap-dogs are presenting this as a slight of the British and their leader
THat's how populism and extremism works - "any criticism of my master is a slight on my people"
These have become dangerous times
One of the main influences on Brexit was initiated by the creator of the disgraced Ukip Party which appeared to collapse under its own ridiculous excesses
When the Tory Party finally collapses, as any party at war with itself and the people it represents inevitably will, you can bet that the scum of the right will scramble to fill the gap
You can lay good money that political careerists like Johnson will take any support they get to scramble the greasy pole - The Brexit Party is little more than an organised Ukip replacement in a suit
