He also said this:"I am absolutely confident that we can send coronavirus packing."

Then he caught it and only the diligent intervention of experts saved his life.

It works as a great analogy of his predictions vs the reality of Brexit... But with Brexit, the Doctors can't save him from his ignorance.

When the History Texts for this era are written I'm going to suggest that the title for the chapter dealing with this year simply be:

2020.  IT JUST KEPT GETTING WORSE

(Here's hoping for a happy ending though....)

"Boris Johnson" sounds really dirty for some reason.
Maybe an ailment?  You have boris johnson after that night in the French Quarter.
Or a sexual thing? Your first date went well even after giving her a surprise boris johnson.

I do concur Boris is an idiot in many ways. Nobody will ever think I approved of Brexsh*t, or that intentionally mussy haired (to be more relatable) mope. I will say this, in a slight defense of him, you can't accurately predict that something like this will happen.

That being said, his response wasn't coherent, realistic, nor based on science really, so he deserves to be taken to Piccadilly Circus and given a public flogging. Then the people can, if any of these places are still open, pop on over to Bill's Soho, Flat Iron, Restaurant Yoshino, Masala Zone, or Ippudo for a quick bite to eat. Maybe grab a drink at Biju before the flogging.

The future for the young in Britain looks quite bleak indeed. At least after 2008 you could relocate and work in 27 other countries, following the opportunities. Now, if you just graduated school, you're trapped. No jobs, and no option to go abroad unless you can get a visa.

Quite apt, because he's a very dirty boy.

Infidelity may as well be his middle name. The man cannot stop himself from cheating on spouses. If you threw a ham sandwich across the room, he'd fark it twice before it hit the floor and then fark the fridge behind its back just to prove that he could. The man was asked point blank how many kids he's got and refused to answer. A nakedly dishonest, stupid-haired clown who probably thought it would all be so easy until corona hit, and now is stuck having to govern and give a shiat rather than just coast off good feelings, Brexit and tacit nativism.

And yet he's still better than Trump. So we have that at least.

Be fair - they have just revised the COVID-19 death toll and brought 5000 people back to life.

Once the effect of Brexit starts in 2021 and farks us for decades we'll realise that this once, albeit accidentally, he wasn't actually lying.

Good gods, you clicked on a Daily Star link? Are you mad?!

You'd turn it off when I was halfway across: Once the effect of Brexit starts in 2021 and farks us for decades we'll realise that this once, albeit accidentally, he wasn't actually lying.


And yet I'm still intending to move back home if Biden loses.

What a choice, eh?

Well, at least you wouldn't have to put up with an authoritarian running the show.

Yet.

20% drop in GDP and not actually out the EU yet, so with no deal another 6 on that!
The U.K. is a dead man walking.

Zenith: 20% drop in GDP and not actually out the EU yet, so with no deal another 6 on that!

A story this week was that discussions for a UK Japan trade agreement have stalled because the UK's International Trade Secretary has dug her heels in over stilton exports.

UK stilton exports to Japan were worth a trivial £100k last year and since they have a most favoured nation status agreement with the EU any deal they did offer us they also have to give to them.

So yeah, so our entire economy is getting farked beyond belief while idiot coonts ride their insane farking hobby horses.

11% of that came back in May and June.

Fark in the last four years: The UK has zero negotiating strength and will have to take any deal they're offered!
Fark today: How dare the UK negotiate and try to get a better deal!

And UK/Japan trade was only £100k last year? Yeah, you do know that is the whole point of getting a trade deal, right? So that trade can increase? That this trade was so small is exactly why a deal on tariffs is important. That's the whole point of trade deals!

That should be UK/Japan Stilton trade was only £100k..... I think we do a lot more than that. Just one Rolls Royce jet engine for JAL would be worth far more than that.
