What garbage. The continuous faux outrage of the capitalist & Nazi supporting media has created the racism & xenophobia that has led to Brexit, fear of & attacks on forriners.

Lots of words, very little meaning. All you've done here is demonstrate a lack of understanding.

The policies of Bliar and the creeping enforcement of an unrealistic culture of political correctness are a major reason for the upsurge in 'populism' (oddly, a word now used in a negative context) and resentment in society that has been shouted down for decades. Continually and aggressively telling people what they can and can't do, say and think has backfired.

If anyone dared whisper 'immigration' ten years ago they were shouted down as 'racist or xenophobe'....oh look, entirely coincidentally of course, at your post. :THINK:

A fair amount of people have criticized Johnson for his remarks ,without reading the article in which he made the comment. It was in The Daily Telegraph, the main point was relevant to Denmark who are in the process of banning the burka. Johnson said Denmark was a free and tolerant society but he did not agree with a total ban on the burka . He then went on to make the remarks about post boxes etc. As per normal the usual suspects surfaced and started howling, conveniently forgetting that Toynbee and others have a track record of criticism against the burka. What made my day was red ken Livingston calling for Johnson to be kicked out of the Tory party. You would need a heart of stone not to laugh at dear old ken.

And now Christine Hamilton (former Tory now with UKIP) has entered the debate, likening the hijab to a KKK mask but, clearly no hint of racism, just a bit of fun !

8) Give it up lad. If you think I get offended at anything, you're well wide of the mark.

Except your blind stupidity. That offends me. :lol:

Figured out what everyone's talking about yet?

I agree with some of what Johnson said. I actually do not like the burka & think it is unhealthy & can be used to repress women. But banning it is illiberal. But cheap, easy jokes are unnecessary &, in Johnson's case, carefully chosen to cause faux outrage & further his position with the alt-right. A position I do not think Johnson naturally fits in. Neither do I think he is a natural Brexiter. They just fit his plan to become PM by any means necessary.

You're right about Boris not being a natural Brexitier, it wasn't so long ago that he wanted to "remain".
I think it's called political ambition, although, two faced b'stard may be more applicable, a fairly common trait among many politicians.

"No deal" is getting quite a kicking isn't it.

Democracy failed when Hitler was elected and nothing has changed since. One less layer of politicians is a godsend.

Don't think Hitler ever got a majority in the Reichstag. He was invited to take over, not elected.
