FFS It's not the need for them to have child care it's the need for us as a society that they have child care. This isn't about not inconveniencing people it about allowing essential process to continue for the good of all.

 

The need for schools as daytime child care is for the parents, many of who provide essential services for us all. I get that completely, however, the issue is whether that should come at the inevitable cost of the children widening the spread. It's a tough balance and we can all only hope that we've got it right.

He didn't. He said 77 million Turks can settle in the UK.

Near the end of the referendum campaign . If Turkey joined the EU , which was extremely unlikely At the time and even more unlikely now !

Please point me in the direction of Gove saying 60 mil Turks will come to the uk if turkey joins the EU. I’d hate to think you just made it up. You must have it to hand, as you knew he said it near the end of the campaign.

I did from memory but here is one of many links https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/irony-dead-brass-neck-brexiteer-12571551

 

Boris denied saying it even though CH4 proved him wrong ! Gove tried to distance himself from the claim after the vote !

So asked to prove Gove said 60mil Turks “to settle” (your words) in the uk. You post a link that Gove said IF Turkey join the EU then they’ll have the right to settle in the uk. Completely different things.

 

Post me a link in which Gove says 60mil Turks will settle in the UK. Or did you just make that up.

"Irony is dead! 'Brass neck' Brexiteer Michael Gove attacks 'identity politics' - after warning 77million Turkish people would be able to come to Britain" It says in link , you can Google it and read various other reports on the subject . As with all propaganda is it about creating the idea in people's head and this was just before the vote , job done.

Not sure what point you are trying to make but I think most people can get the idea about Gove .

Gove didn’t say 60mil Turks to settle in UK.

It was a comment about relying on Gove for the truth about Cummings trip up north during lockdown . Duck is being pedantic , Gove did say 77m Turks could come to the UK when Turkey joined the EU which was extremely unlikely and just a scare before the Brexit vote. So that was the point which is correct , Lord D seems to be trying to make the point about it not being an exact quote , this is true but then it wasn't supposed to be , it was a reference to what Gove did say in the past.

Do I have an army of fact checkers to check before I post on here ? No , I use Google like most people usually after the event !

Time to move on ......

Gove said that if Turkey joined the EU, then 77 million Turks would have the right to settle in the UK. You claimed he said that 60mil would do so.

 

You’re now claiming that although you were wrong, and just made up the quote, it was ok because you were merely proving Gove is a liar.

 

Can you not see the irony in making something up, to prove someone else is untrustworthy.

I guess the question we should be asking today is who is actually running the country, Boris Johnson or Dominic Cummings?

So now Boris backs another dead horse, Jenrick!!

Don't be silly. Don't you know that as Cummings demonstrated it is 1 rule for us and 1 rule for them? Bung a few grand in the direction of the Tories and your garden extension which was refused planning permission could be built.

Jenrick and Richard Desmond are yet another example of how the idea that the Tory and Brexit parties are anti-elite and populist are an absolute joke and a total lie. That’s purely been done to shaft the local community there. Let him stay as with Cummings, it will destroy Boris’s government from the inside as the accumulation of sleaze did to Major’s. As with Major’s government, Labour are finally waking up a bit although long way still off a party I could ever vote for.

The country is facing the biggest recession in history and we just spent 900k on that.

Boris Johnson is accused of LYING after he denies saying 80 million Turks could come to Britain during the 2016 referendum battle

Did he use the word 'could'?

If so, then the National Lottery should also be accused of lying :classic_wink:

Notwithstanding the fact that the article is about 18 months old; his quotes are in it and no, he didn’t say “could”.

Was on absolutely top form in today’s briefing. Who said he struggled with detail?

At least, he said he wouldn’t take a knee - that will keep the hysterical halfwits happy.

He said he doesn't believe in gestures. The same man who last Sunday was on the front page of the Mail on Sunday doing press ups.
