So thousands of people losing their homes in a flood isn't important?

I can't believe you just wrote that.


I don't think you've been following his posts! That's exactly what I would have expected. Depressing rather than surprising.

But I did find Samoan's excuses a little breathtaking.


Sorry, I know my audience and I suppose it’s all too easy to get the desired reaction. But sadly it still amuses me a little.

You lot take politics very seriously - I don’t.

But yes, visiting stricken parts of the country seems to be expected of a PM. Completely futile of course as it doesn’t achieve a damn thing except create a photo opportunity and the chance to spout the usual guff about being shocked and saddened.

I have little doubt that Corbyn is a far nicer person than Johnson and does care about people in need, in a way that Johnson is probably incapable of feeling. But then he is incapable of leading a major political party as we all know all too well.

I’m not sure Boris is capable of leadership though either.
He thinks he’s a modern day Churchill but at least Winston got out and met a few people in the Blitz.

Johnson’s handlers know he’s a gaffe-prone nightmare so they have him locked away for the duration.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

You may very well be right. He ain’t exactly statesmanlike.

That's a good one.


You can't defend Johnson on this one. His neglect and lack of empathy is there for all to see.


I am not, and will not be defending Johnson. I was laughing at the idea that some MP's care about anyone other than themselves. Priceless.
You don't like me...do you?

I guess that probably says more about you.

As in "Shit Can" Coan.

It's apparently what he used to be called by the lads in his old Borstal metalwork class.
