    Forget the Hulk, now he's the Invisible Man:




    (Johnson bottled a press conference with Xavier Bettel, the PM of Luxembourg, because a couple of hundred British ex-pats turned up to protest.)
    Bizarre scenes.

    Why travel all the way to Luxembourg to drown out a press conference though? Plays right into Johnson's hands.

    On a more general level where do these types come from, in particular those who hang around outside Parliament day after day either shouting 'Stop Brexit' or waving 'We voted leave' placacards? How do they have so much free time on their hands?

    I think the suggestion is they are Brits who live in Luxembourg rather than travelling in specially.

    Things have become so polarised (ie we appear to now be facing a choice of no deal or no Brexit) I'm not sure we can laugh off the Lib Dem chances of making a serious impact at a general election. Not necessarily winning it, but significantly compromising the Labour vote.

    They have my vote.

    My constituency was one in which Labour made huge progress compared to 2015. They increased their share by 12% and are now in clear second place so I'll be voting for them.

    Hopefully there'll be a Brexit Party candidate standing too. If so, Labour will have a decent chance of winning.

    It really doesn't.

    Why travel all the way to Luxembourg for a press conference, only to wuss out of it? Just makes him look as weak and feeble as his predecessor.

    If true that 'protesters' were paid to go there with taxpayers money authorised by Cummings as part of a stunt, that's an absolute disgrace.

    Just to clarify, I don't believe that but people up and down the country might be saying it.

    And they will pick up the Tory remain vote.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    You watch Johnson for 30 seconds and all you see is a habitual liar. Watching him interviewed by Laura Kuenssberg, hardly the toughest interviewer on the scene, on the BBC news just now and you can literally see him stumble from one lie to the next.

    The interview with him talking about how he 'makes model buses' in his spare time was the most blatant lying I have ever seen from anyone.

    Also becoming increasingly obvious how inarticulate he is. Most of the European politicians who are interviewed on Brexit speak more coherent English than Johnson.

    The anyone but Corbyn mantra (lifted from 'The week in quotes'):

    "There is no circumstance or exigency in which I could support his coming to power and so I have to make my choices. They are these: anything, anyone, any outcome but Corbyn. A Remainer, I would rather no-deal; a democrat, I would rather no Brexit; a Unionist, I would rather Scottish independence. Whatever the costs, the costs of Corbyn will always be higher."
    Who is being quoted there?

    Watched the interview and it's quite scary how clueless Boris is. He literally does not have a clue and Kuenssberg would have got more sense from an interview with quasimodo.

    It was by far Johnson's best appearance since becoming PM.

    I kind of get what he is trying to say but this sort of "empire" chat won't help the Lib Dems out with soft leavers or even soft remainers, and it is the sort of language that had me leaning towards Leave at one point.

    Verhofstadt is for me the Farage of the pro EU side, some of his views are just as scary.

    I think hes being shown up for how out of his depth he is. In the HoC, in the street and in interviews he looks flustered and confused.

    Which is why he is going to find it very difficult to keep it together in any election campaign

    It is also the reason, that elections are the next thing his junta say we can do without.

    Swinson is just going to dilute the remain vote and hand no-deal to the tories.
    Labour need to come out and do the same. Cancel Brexit, and commit to holding town-hall meetings to find out what the country really wants (without all the bull**** and false promises).
    Let the economy recover and be able to spell out exactly what needs to be renegotiated (or not) and help educate the population on what the EU does and does not do for us.

    It'll never happen. far too sensible.
    In fact they don't need to be in power to educate the country. They could start now. They could return to parliament every day and have Parliament TV all to themselves having a massive Q&A session.

    (they probably couldn't get in and parly tv is probably shutdown, but hey, its all unused)

    Oh look, Ruth "oh what's she like" Davidson has found a voice...

    https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politi...mpression=true

    Why wasn't any of this aired as leader of the Scottish Conservatives?

    Without a shadow of a doubt, she is a grade 1, class A, total ****ing ***** bag,and any unionist taken in by her and the Scottish media's coverage of her should take a ****ing good look at themselves.

    I hate that ****...

    In a candid interview, the 40-year-old once tipped for PM said it felt "naughty" having her first weekend off work for a decade

    Christ, she can't even be honest when talking about breaks ffs.

    Probably the biggest piece of vermin in Europe. The political clout he has is incredible, he makes Boris look left wing and sensible.

    Vermin? Did you mean to say blowfly?
