Promises and politicians are the same coin but different sides.

Corbyn has stamped his walking papers with his vagueness....

Virtually all democratic elections anywhere are big spending ones these days - the lack of maturity of the voting populations everywhere is disconcerting. Democracy ought be way better than Chinese style govt, it needs to be.

Why won't Johnson release the report on Russian interference?

It is important to understand all the policies defined personally by the main party leaders and then subjected to questioning by a studio audience......So......

Johnson and Brexit vs Trump and the Republicans , I can't decide which has been is most farcical performance, both are worthy of the circus of year for the last three years performance. Neither are representing the people who put them in office, they are supposed to be working for all British and Americans citizens respectively, sadly so many have suffered, both in Britain and the US because of these clowns. Unfortunately so many of the citizens themselves believe the BS that Johnson and Trump spew . The uncertainty that companies and employees both sides of the pond are experiencing, only time will tell wether their rhetoric and promises are working. Personally, I am not a fan of the majority of politicians worldwide, most are chasing personal agendas and enriching the minority at the cost of the majority.

Like Trump in the US, Boris is up against the whole corrupt globalist establishment (the swamp). It is an uphill battle for both. I wish him good luck. Meanwhile, the fake corporate media will continue to spout anti-Trump and anti-Brexit propaganda.

What we are looking it is a big battle between populism and elitism.

You keep posting your anti semitic rhetoric. “Globalist” is a term with an anti-Semitic history,

Oh dear, it would seem you don't know much at all about Boris and the Tories.

the whole corrupt globalist establishment

People on this site keep referring to globalists, but when I ask who they are I get all sorts of answers. Some say they are corporations, some say they are individuals. No one has been able to provide any actual agenda or list of members, or even what defines one as a globalist.

The term is a complete an utter mess. I'm pretty sure that the only thing it really means is 'boogeyman', which as we know, some people consider the Jews to be. What's I'm unclear on is whether everyone using the term is using it in an anti-Semitic manner, or just some of them.

I can tell you this though, I am adverse to certain types of business which I feel serve only the interests of the rich and do not operate in an ethical manner, and this type of business could accurately be described as globalism, with the participants being accurately described as globalist.

But in 999/1000 situations, I would choose some other term to express my thoughts, so that as not to have people mistakenly think I hate Jews. And the 1/1000 situation in which I would use the term, is this very post here, where I used the term above.

I guess some people don't mind if their comments may come across as them being bigots though. Their right of course, but not a particularly socially intelligent approach.

PM Daddy Christmas is more like a long legged spider about to run up your leg. Failed policies, welfare cutbacks, sacking 20,000 police, closing thousands of police stations and some rural hospitals. Lack of investments that's some of that they have been giving the country for the past 9 years.

Yes! nine years of destruction.

Spiders have some uses; they're good in the garden for keeping bad bugs at bay.

Can't see that any Tory PM in recent years has done anything to earn his place in England's (the UK's) green and pleasant land.

Bozo is more like a big fat slug that sucks the goodness out of yer prize veggies, then claims the only way to save the situation is to suck more goodness out of all the other veggies until they're all equally ruined, and the slugs alone are bigger and fatter and glossier.

I guess some people don't mind if their comments may come across as them being bigots though. 

I think the thing is that they genuinely don't see themselves as bigots. If they did, they wouldn't say/write the things they do.

What we are looking it is a big battle between populism and elitism.

The above an example of the KISS principle for those unable to reason for themselves, those who can only react to a term like 'elite', which in their glossary means bad.

Curious that those the global alt right follow and laud, people like Putin who some say is the richest man in the world, a man who commands one of the world's largest, if not the largest, nuclear militaries, a man who oversees control of Russia's vast oil, gas and coal resources, is not included as one of the 'elite'.

Curious that someone like Trump, a putative billionaire who in his short time in office has done more to further enrich the globe's wealthiest, is not considered an elite.

The complex world reduced by partisan extremists to either A or Z. Nothing in between. Their messages aimed at those with limited reasoning skills.

Interesting food for thought.

Voting for Labour then, cleo? But don't they suck even worse than the Tories?

No wait, you've been out of the UK over 15 years, right? You can't vote? You can't vote in Japanese elections either - dang, that really SUCKS!

Voting for Labour then, cleo?

Why would not voting for the nasty party mean inevitably voting for Labour? The UK has more than two parties, or are you only able to judge things through a US prism of us/them?

But don't they suck even worse than the Tories?

No, the only ones who suck worse than the Tories (or as bad as) are UKIP and the Brexit 'party'.

You can't vote? You can't vote in Japanese elections either - dang, that really SUCKS!

Yes, it does. Doesn't stop a girl being interested and concerned, though.

And at least I'm not making totally ignorant comments about a country with which I have no connection.....

The important mission is getting rid of PM Bozo and the Tories.

I cannot even begin to process just how stunningly ignorant that is.

What kind of fake news bubble are some people living in?
