Yep, next to nothing about the consequences of Brexit in the media...as if its all going to be alright on the night, to suit the Tories. If we had a proper media in this country they would running consistent economic profiling of what Johnson's oven ready deal will actually mean.
If millions of folk still wanted to vote it through despite knowing that they will be substantially worse off financially, then that would be their own fault. Its not only 48% of voters who backed Remain who are about to be shafted its the whole economy, just to ensure that the ERG maniacs make a nice pile of cash off the back of it.
It is truly scandalous that in a supposedly 'Brexit' election that the media have been compliant in cheerleading the Tories three word slogan as if its all one giant wheeze which to the ERG/Bullingdon Club of course it is.
 
Some of that 48% will vote Tory mate. Quite a few in Scotland I hasten to add. f**k them, get what they deserve.... UK is fucked

Found this on facebook

The Dutch media are not pulling their punches.

This was published in the Volksrant, a daily newspaper.

As you can see it depicts the UK being gang raped by Johnson, Farage, Cummings, Rees-Mogg and somebody else...... edit(is it gove?)

The BBC is saying, “Move along now. Nothing to see here”.

Seems to me the Dutch have a grip of what’s happening here and the BBC’s role in it.

His handlers would be idiots to allow him on. Its one of the few things that could knock percentage  points of his lead. He does not need to gain votes, just avoid losing them. 

 

Much would depend on how Neil would want to treat him.

He is, or was, pretty far right himself, he might not be as hard on Boris as most of us would wish him to be.

Spot on JLD...some of the 48% will indeed still vote Tory. I would still love to see some 'serious' journalism in this country though that fleshed out whats coming after the Eton balloon gets his shabby deal through. Every front page in the land 'should' be printing the facts and figures, not hiding behind the 'what is Boris like..oven ready...hes such a character'

Not if you are a Jew.

What is it?

47% of British Jews said they are thinking of leaving the UK if Labour get into power.

Certainly not trivial for them.

Or Trifling.

Yep. The attempt to attack Johnson (rightly) and portray Corbyn as some sort of man of the people on this site is quite frankly pathetic. The man is anti-semitic, doesn’t have a stance on two major issues (indyref2 and Brexit) and is constantly spouting cloud cuckoo land soundbites (including his unsustainable spending plans) to try and get the young, naive students on board.

He’s an utter fool and while Johnson is too, the idea that we’ll be totally safe with Corbyn in charge is baffling.

Of course not, but disputes over such are.

As I've written, continuous disputes over these matters is trifling.

He's going to have to be, to avoid being labelled as Kuenssburg Mk 2.   

Unless he and the BJ indulge in a little theatre, and drama,  for the gullible punters.

Like old-time wrestling.

Neil has absolutely murdered Johnson in that short clip.

That's actually worse than what he'd do to him in an interview. Most the people who'll see that probably wouldn't have watched the interview anyway, but now they'll see him called out. 3mins is short enough for people on twitter to watch the full thing as well.

Who said Israel? 

The USA is a more likely option. 

What other Religious  group in the UK has threatened to leave en mass?

None.

I'm guessing 47% of British Jews are Tory voters doing the thing that actors always do before right-wing governments get elected, only in reverse. "They're going to elect Bush? That's it, I'm emigrating to Canada! Eventually."

What on Earth are we supposed to believe that a Labour government would actually want to do to the Jewish community? Even if the National Front returned from the grave to a (somewhat surprising) election victory, it wouldn't be the Jews who'd be the first to be rounded up these days.

It's en masse.

Also, foreign-born Jews have the right to move to Israel and claim citizenship. America has no such agreement, and isn't terribly keen on random immigrants these days. And it's utter bollocks anyway, because nobody Jewish would be leaving the country unless they already had plans to do so.

Apart from that, a tremendous post; equal to his finest.
