Nobody can be surprised that a liar would lie about whether he has lied

He does not tell the truth

He is supposed to be someone we should respect


He is the antithesis of this unless you like banal sound bites

I agree with you to some degree, but religious fanatics must also take a lot of the blame

Do any of you think that the desperation of millionaire/billionaire toffs wanting to leave the EU is linked to the EU's new laws on tax avoidance? Brexit will allow these charlatans the opportunity to keep conning the general public, whilst the EU block the loopholes they currently exploit.

"any of you"?
I don't think that the desperation of millionaire/billionaire toffs wanting to leave the EU is linked to the EU's new laws on tax avoidance.
What about you?
Anybody else?

I think it is linked, some of these crooks have businesses which makes millions but they pay zero tax. Now as the net is closing in on them, there's a sudden desperation for leaving the EU. All seems too convenient for me.

Are you the Columbo around here?

It's been about tax avoidance for the likes of James Dyson, Arron Banks, Richard Tice, Tim Martin, Jim Ratcliffe, Crispin Odey and Jacob Rees-Mogg right from the very start.

But they have their useful idiot Nigel Farage to keep the masses thinking about immigration whilst banging on about a 3 years and 3 month old ballot.

It seems I am Mrs Terry. You're spot on though as they've sent former city trader Nigel Farage to convince the lower classes to help the ruling class by being on their side. He's one of us though as he likes a pint, a fag & stands up to the establishment!😁

so you are suggesting it was your idea to send Farage to convince people like me to vote for the ruling class

a' I don't think you did and
b I didn't vote to leave because of Farage, more like inspite of Farage

Just a thought about double standards from the centre ground, wanting a re run of the Brexit vote because according to them people didn't know what they were voting for, yet all the MPs who have switched allegiances like Chuka Umana and all the others, haven't gone back to the electorate. People who voted for Umuna wanted a Labour MP, Sam Gyimah from the other side has deprived their constituents of the Conservative they voted for. Why are these hypocrites not going back to their rat runs and seeking re-election under their new badge of allegiance.
