Scottish referendum rejected: Johnson sought to put Sturgeon in the box, but she’s a jack-in-the-box

The land of ‘Neverendum,’ a ‘Brigadoon’ Scotland, shrouded in the mists of Celtic obscurantism, where new “once in a lifetime” referenda reappear every six years, is no doubt a source of frustration to many of my fellow Scots as they struggle with a health and education crisis and many succumb to the worst level of […]

British PM Johnson says ‘not possible to reset relations with Russia’

   British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he “was wrong” about Russia and that he no longer believes it is possible to “reset’ relations with Moscow amid many differences separating the two countries. “What I’ve really changed my mind on was whether it is possible to reset with Russia,” the prime minister told the British […]

I spy with my little eye: Threats to civil liberties in Johnson’s Queen’s speech

As Harold Wilson famously remarked, a week is a long time in politics. I wonder how many of those who trooped out in the pouring rain to vote for Boris Johnson only seven days ago might have been experiencing some buyer’s remorse on listening to the Queen’s Speech, which outlined the re-elected government’s new legislative […]

IRNA – British Prime Minister Borris Johnson’s foreign policy is aimed at reducing tensions with Iran and developing trade relations as London looks at Iran as a big market, said Iran’s ambassador to the UK on Wednesday. “Experience has shown that since Johnson was foreign secretary until now that he is the British premier has […]

Boris Johnson’s Britain

Britain is looking drenched at the moment; colours blue and yellow seem to be streaking through the country. The Scottish Nationalists have re-asserted control lost to the Conservatives in 2016.  In the rest of the country, seats never touched by Tory Blue have are now occupied by the party of Boris Johnson.  Yet again, British […]

Johnson takes victory lap in traditional Labour areas that powered crushing win

LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited northern England on Saturday to thank voters and newly elected Conservative Party lawmakers in the working class heartland that turned its back on the opposition Labour Party in this week’s election and helped give him an 80-seat majority. Speaking in Sedgefield — the constituency once held […]

Trump: Boris Johnson MASSIVE Win ‘Harbinger for What’s Coming’ in 2020

President Trump has declared British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s historic victory in the UK election this week as a “harbinger for what’s coming” in 2020. “I think that might be a harbinger for what’s to come in our country; it was last time,” Trump said during an Oval Office meeting with Mario Abdo Benítez, president […]

Johnson meets Queen as final UK results gives him largest win since Thatcher

LONDON (AP) — Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party has won a thumping majority of seats in Britain’s Parliament — a decisive outcome to a Brexit-dominated election that should allow Johnson to fulfill his plan to take the UK out of the European Union next month. With 649 of the 650 results declared on Friday, […]

Ripping the heart out of Labour’s heartlands: How Johnson snatched working-class towns from under Corbyn’s nose

Go to any working-class community and you’ll find old-fashioned Labour supporters speak of the Thatcher government in such negative terms that they still hate the Conservatives even today, 40 years on. They pin 100 percent of the blame on the Conservatives for the decline in manufacturing and the loss of the coal-mining industry. In the […]

‘Knives out’ – new film from ‘The Last Jedi’ director Rian Johnson – sharpens the blade of anti-white racism

I recently watched The Birth of a Nation (1915), D.W. Griffith’s century old ode to the Ku Klux Klan. Griffith’s masterpiece is a disgusting piece of racial propaganda, but it was a huge box office success and no doubt kicked off Hollywood’s long and ugly history of demeaning and belittling portrayals of people of color […]

#fridgegate: All the best reactions to British PM Boris Johnson hiding from questions in a fridge

   Nobody woke up this morning expecting to tweet about the prime minister leaping into a milk fridge, but thanks to Boris Johnson’s cowardice around journalists we now have the hashtag #fridgegate with less than 24 hours before the nation goes to the polls. Boris Johnson had been hoping for some positive press from his […]

Corbyn v. Johnson leaders’ debate is won by… Labour’s Barry Gardiner

As leaders’ debates go (and I’m not a big fan of this particular US import), it wasn’t too bad. The BBC’s Nick Robinson chaired it quite fairly and allowed both the Prime Minister and the Opposition leader to finish off their points. It was a far cry from the abysmal ITV ‘debate’ a few weeks […]

Will ‘get Brexit done’ ever end? Johnson provokes haters mocking his campaign slogan with… more Brexit mantra!

   Boris Johnson has been lampooned for repeatedly recycling his Brexit slogan during a debate with Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn. Unfazed by his critics, the Tory leader has continued to flood Twitter with his polarizing campaign mantra. The British Prime Minister locked horns with Corbyn during Friday’s BBC debate. While discussing a range of issues, Johnson […]

Former Tory MP Nick Boles described Boris Johnson as a “compulsive liar” who has betrayed “every single person he has ever had any dealings with” in a candid interview in the Evening Standard today. The ex-minister, who resigned the Conservative whip in April in frustration at the party’s Brexit policy, said he would be voting […]

Boris Johnson said that Islamophobia is a ‘natural reaction’ to Islam and that ‘Islam is the problem’

   Boris Johnson’s Conservative party has been accused by Muslim leaders in the UK of allowing Islamophobia to “fester” within their ranks. “This an issue that is particularly acute in the Conservative Party who have approached Islamophobia with denial, dismissal and deceit,” the group said in a statement on Tuesday.

Boris Johnson gets cold treatment from flood victims

Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has received a frosty reception during his tour of flood-stricken areas in South Yorkshire. Mr. Johnson received the coldest treatment during his visit to Stainforth, in South Yorkshire, where some local residents refused even to speak to him. One wheelbarrow clutching woman curtly told the PM: “I’m not very happy […]

Johnson’s amnesty for Northern Ireland soldiers is a license to kill

Prime Minister Johnson made his announcement on the annual Armistice Day commemorating the end of World War I. In a blatant electioneering ploy, he said if his Conservative government is re-elected on December 12, then British law will be amended to bar any future prosecution of soldiers for alleged atrocities committed during Northern Ireland’s three-decade […]
