I see Boris is still hiding under a rock /in a fridge. Sending out dimwitted lackeys to break the bad news. Government not so much by proxy, but from a remote site. Interesting, what's going on?

Re: Where to go to flee b****t (This Madness) or jockxit

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

John, racists and people calling for a reduction in immigration are not exclusively from the Tory side as you are very well aware.
