Thread: Politicians fighting.

  1. #1

    Default Politicians fighting.

    Isn't is sad how the Politicians of all Countries are fighting amongst themselves.
    If they spend that valuable time trying to solve the problems it would be refreshing.
    Between Boris and Biden….what a bunch!

    Cheeze Whiz……are they ever going after Boris…. He had a couple of people over, and had a few drinks on his BIRFFDAY!.
    This is what happens in modern day Politics……
    Lets not let the Man GOVERN, just attempt to De-Throne him!
    What childish behaviour!…….he deserves a Medal.

    You just don't get it, do you Horseman on so many levels and I feel sorry for you. Unless, of course you actually do get it fine and are on here merely just stirring which is quite likely, I guess.

    As you say Fulmar, Horseman is either a complete ignoramus, or he just likes to get people riled.
    As far as I'm aware he doesn't live in the UK and so I doubt he has any understanding of what is happening here.

    To whom it may concern,
    My comment was….Managing a Company is stressful and extremely difficult. And managing a Country is nigh impossible when you have all The Dogs at your heels attempting to take you down.
    So he had a party….is this sufficient to have him Booted!
    Of course, if you are from the opposing sides, anything goes.
    No I don't live in the UK, but travel back regularly, and I bet I know The North if Scotland as good as anyone.
    Political Parties should be allowed to Governing, not spending all their time doing ‘damage control!

    And Gronnucky, You yourself don’t sound like the sharpest Knife in the drawer!
    Fulmar….so you don’t agree with what I say.

    Horseman, I really do think you should quit this thread whilst you have a shred of credibility left. There is a deep anger, across all sections of the population, at Johnson's behaviour and if you have not picked up on that then perhaps your favoured news provider is letting you down.

    Very cold here…27 below zero, with Snow and more snow! And of course ‘locked down’ with Covid.

    Lybster must be ‘shining’! S

    Respect has to be earned. Boris Johnson became PM when the Tories won 43% of England's vote. The Tories have not won power in Scotland since 1955! Boris's ascent to high office has been very much a lottery; he has a track record of failure, philandry, lying and racism. His reprehensible behaviour is all in the public domain.

    OK….Can you think of a more ‘local party’ that is different!

    In a more serious tone, Governments are like ‘big business’, which really they are. They have to turn and twist with everyday problems….Yes?

    Horseman, I really don't know what to say to you except that you appear to be completely out of touch with the mood of the people on these islands. For example, a recent poll showed 80% of Scots wanted him to resign. I wouldn't be surprised to see that that figure was now even higher given the latest revelations.

    Please, before you post any more thoughts on the matter widen your news gathering a bit. As Gronnuck says "respect has to be earned" and Johnson has done nothing but give us reasons to disrespect him.

    I'd love to reply to your last post but I'm afraid I really don't understand it.

    Now, I know I go on about how biased the BBC is but it has very thoughtfully provided the general public with a discussion forum on the Downing St. parties.

    At the time of writing there were 12,560 comments. Have a browse through them and you will see the strength of feeling many have about him. And before anyone piles on to say how unrepresentative this sample of views is, I know. I'm just trying to help Horseman understand the level of anger which exists.

    *******And I did compare CNN to the BBC….in fact The BBC ‘lifts’ CNN stories and re prints them!
    But people are angry about everything……Read Jordan Peterson.
    It’s that time in The World…..and Covid doesn’t help.

    Weather here today is 25 below zero and 2 feet of snow. It's been a while since we had these conditions.
    Am also a Tory!…That is going to Shock Corky!
    It’s been a few years since I was over, but I try to keep up with the Goings on!
    Glad to see you are still going strong’…..A wee bitty like Johnny WALKER…..
    It takes all kinds to make a World. AND Glad your still paying taxes! S
