If you’re happy with that it tells us a lot about your moral compass.

    Remind us about your moral compass again Duckie. Pulled any nine pinters lately? Talking of extremists, would you say that kicking out long established members of your own Party, shutting down Parliament for 5 weeks so that the opposition have less time to deal with some very serious issues and inferring that you will ignore the instructions of your own House was extreme behaviour?

    Here's another example of someone taking quotes out of context.

    An article that seems to sum up Boris pretty well

    https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/colum...cid=spartandhp

    He reads from the Trump playbook at home, but puts it hastily down when grownup EU leaders enter the room. He is too weak-willed to play the typical nationalist strongman. He saddled the populist tiger and rode it towards a no-deal Brexit, but look closely and you see a queasy expression, as if there is a part of him that wants to get off.

    What's immoral about smashing a nine-pinter?

    Surely a fine example of not discriminating people based on their appearance - a living example of equality of opportunity. Well done Lord D.

    Drink nine pints, pull, wake up in the morning and realise your vision and judgement had been seriously impaired.

    Duckie grades women by how many pints he would need to drink before he would deign to have sex with them. Or in his case I suspect, how many pints of vodka and coke that women would need to drink before having sex with him.

    It hasn't. Its perfectly accurate that eurosceptic hedgies have shorted the pound and some of them also backed Johnson. Crispin Odey and Jonathan Moynihan are two of the biggest

    Whether that equates to connivance with Johnson or simply they backed him because they knew he would bring volatility is another matter. Hedge funds make money from volatility - plunges up and down in values. They struggle with stability.

    As an aside, I see that International Trade Secretary Liz Truss has had to apologise to a court for 'accidentally' licencing military spares for Saudi Arabia, in contravention of a court order and a promise to Parliament.

    If this is true, I wonder when she will resign.

    Or doesn't the law apply to members of Johnson's cabinet?
