No-deal Brexit Johnson congratulating London's French-awarded Michelin stars. Does he not understand the hypocrisy in this..?

he said, drawing laughs from the remaining delegates in the largely deserted hall

C-class politician.

Wonder what hes had been smoking before that speech.

Off-the-wall!!!

Alexa will be watching you, clapping her tongue

And I'd always taken him for a native English speaker.

Yesterday, he was complaining that British tape measures are not allowed to be imported to, because American's don't like British rulers?

He was also complaining about tariffs on imported socks. I suppose he was thinking about getting the boot!

Boris was at home in New York, his birth city. Entitled to dual nationality so maybe we can give hime back.

That toupee and his orange tinge makes him look like Trump.

Johnson also referenced one of his favorite subjects, Greek mythology, by telling the story of Zeus punishing Prometheus by ensuring that an eagle ate his liver over and over again.

"This went on forever. A bit like the experience of Brexit in the UK if some of our parliamentarians had their way," he said

So just ripping the liver out, end of, would be better? Not sure what he's trying to say there.

Brexit is a holy punishment for offending the gods?

Bozo getting his myths mixed up?

Yup, certainly sounds like Alex de Pheffel had been hitting the happy juice. Perfectly understandable reaction, I suppose.

Somebody stick a fork in him.

maybe we can give hime back

I don't think they want him.

More of a case of

Dead man clucking!

What an embarrassing display... just resign, Bozo, and go back to your model buses.

"'Alexa' will pretend to take orders but this Alexa will be watching you, clapping her tongue and stamping her foot," Johnson boomed, suggesting "there may be nowhere to hide."

Mr Johnson forgot to put on his tin foil hat before going on stage.

Surprised that the Tories voted for him as leader (and PM). They are usually more astute in who they choose.

It is obvious that his originally prepared speech, all Brexit and anti-Brussels soundbytes, was quickly withdrawn. Seeing as 11 of the most senior judges in the UK declared his actions in parliament as unlawful.

Labour are famous for the unions placing bufoons in charge (Milli-bland, Corbyn), but I am surprised at the Tories.

The UK buffoon gives the US buffoon some real competition. But, ultimately, the US wins the buffoonish leader contest.

Tosser.

Looking for attention as usual.

Putin's payback....

Interfere in both the 2016 US election and the UK BREXIT vote....

Convince those weak of mind to support two absolute morons....

Sit back and laugh as those leaders take their countries down the tubes...

You missed IDS and Michael ‘something of the night about him’ Howard then?

No, we do not want him. We don't want his cousin Donny either.

How exactly did Boris get into Oxford?

Jim, you're quite right about Michael Nightwalker Howard and IDS. But compared to my traditional party Labour (not so sure now), the Tories are more sensible. Mind you compared to Boris, IDS and Michael Nightstalker Howard appear almost Churchillian...

"Yesterday, he was complaining that British tape measures are not allowed to be imported to, because American's don't like British rulers?" Actually, that's a pretty good joke. See: American War of Independence

How exactly did Boris get into Oxford?

Good question, but the answer is the normal way - by being pretty clever - he just hides it well, not always intentionally. He won a scholarship to Eton at the age of 12 13, which does mean passing a surprisingly difficult test (example mathematics paper copied below):

and general paper:

Boris is Britain's Donnie boy. They need to get their house in order before they commit to Brexit.

A vast majority of countries have mediocre leaders. Statesmanlike leaders are a rare. Electing leaders by voting doesn't seem to work any longer. Time to institute writtten and oral test and weed out morons like Johnson and Donny

Sorry, but Oxford and Cambridge are full of idiots like Boris.

The ability to memorise gigabytes of facts has nothing to do with intelligence. Intelligence is the ability to see through the smokescreen and bovine excrement, pin point the problem and come up with a solution. Boris doesn't even realise there is a smokescreen or bovine E.

He can't see that far!

Have to feel sorry for the UK with this nutter as pm...

Whoah. Congratulations Britain, you just out-Trumped us.

I can find no mention of limbless chickens on the BBC website. Does that mean this is fake news, even though I saw the YouTube video. I find that a little worrying.

Ah, another "very stable genius" at work.

"I can find no mention of limbless chickens on the BBC website. Does that mean this is fake news, even though I saw the YouTube video. I find that a little worrying."

"The prime minister littered his speech with jokes about futuristic "hangover cures", the threat of "pink-eyed Terminators", "terrifying limbless chickens" and household devices that "monitor your nightmares, monitor your fridge".

Geezer is a proper nutter.
