If you have been living alone, for over a decade, on a remote south sea island without any means of communication, you could be forgiven for not having formed the opinion that the Tory Party could be about to elect a bungling, nasty, vicious, dishonest, racist clown as our Prime Minister. If you would like a sample of incidents that would lead any remotely virtuous human being to describe Boris Johnson in this way, take a look HERE, or HERE, or HERE. These examples of his breathtaking incompetence, stupidity, arrogance and uninhibited exhibitionism give only a brief insight into the murky depths of this man’s mind. Just look at what a previous employer said of him!
And so to Tom Watson with an extract from his blog.
“As back catalogues go, Boris Johnson’s has got more scratches than most of my old 45s. Thanks to the power of the internet, the outrageous remarks, gaffes and Trumpian revisions of history, are all easily found. It’s little wonder the world of social media has had a field day this past week.
There are the letterbox and bankrobber jibes at burka-wearing women, the watermelon and piccaninnies attack on black people, the lies on the side of a Brexit bus, the plea for Turkey to be welcomed into the EU (yes, welcomed), and the endless list of his failures as Mayor of London and as the worst Foreign Secretary of the modern age.
We live in the most disturbing of times when a deeply-flawed, faux and self-serving careerist like Johnson is close to being anointed Prime Minister, ready to drive the UK to a no-deal Brexit disaster, without any democratic mandate for either himself or his policies.”
It must now fall to the Labour leadership to fight Johnson with everything we have. We cannot sit idly by, leaving unchallenged a man whose primary economic policies are £10 billion in tax cuts for the wealthiest 8%, nothing for the rest, and a reckless threat to leave the EU on October 31st, imperilling the peace in Northern Ireland and destroying the trading relationship with our closest allies.
I promise you that I won’t be sitting idly by. I will have a lot more to say on this when I make a speech on Monday to The Centre for European Reform, entitled “The Future of Britain and Europe”. (Extract from Tom Watson’s Blog)
Finally, take a look at the video below if you require any further evidence of his shallow hypocrisy.
The fact that the Tories have even allowed the possibility of Johnson becoming Prime Minister is proof that they care little about the consequences to our nation and more about grasping on to power – no matter what the cost.
