Brexit, Actually

This is a parody. A parody by the Prime Minister and it works. Probably the best ad of the campaign…

Boris Hints at TV Licence Reform

Speaking in the Brexit heartland of Sunderland this afternoon, the Prime Minister was asked about TV licence reform. While not making any explicit commitment, his answer pricked Guido’s ears – claiming he is “certainly looking at it”, and going on to say “you have to ask yourself whether that kind of approach to funding a media organisation still makes sense in the long term, giving the way other organisations manage to fund themselves.” Music to libertarian ears…

Boris Explains His Brexit Deal

Remainers Demand Stormzy Boycotts Brand after it Backs Brexit

At Boris’s rally yesterday, (yes, that one), he was handed a scarf saying ‘Get Brexit Done’ from Derbyshire-based knitwear company John Smedley. Naturally, Remainers went absolutely bananas…

Immediately, furious FBPEers took to Twitter, disgusted a business might disagree with their economic outlook that more dither and uncertainty with a second referendum is precisely what companies desire.

The icing on the cake came when remainers spotted the company boasted just two days ago that their pullover had been worn by notable Labour-supporter Stormzy

At least the company found one new supporter – from Rachel Johnson who said she’s sorted her Christmas presents now…

Channel 4 Smears Boris with False Quote

Channel 4 have been caught out smearing Boris – by mis-captioning his speech from yesterday and replacing the word ‘talent’ for ‘colour’. Is it any wonder the Tories are waging war with the propagandists…

Boris, speaking in Derbyshire, said he was “in favour of having people of talent come to this country”, however when Channel 4 uploaded the clip they claimed he said “people of colour” – listen for yourself above.

Boris uses the quote so often it could be considered his catchphrase (for example in this BBC interview), yet Channel 4 took it upon themselves to mislead thousands.

But that didn’t stop lefties immediately leaping on the smear, with 11,000 tweets about the quote at time of publication and other notable lefties like Lewis Goodall wasting no time in attacking the PM

UPDATE: Channel 4 have apologised for the mistake. Too little too late?…

UPDATE II: Senior Tory Source: “This shows why it has been impossible to cooperate with Channel 4 News, they are campaigners in this election – inventing the most damaging things possible to further their campaign against Brexit. ‘This sort of thing is why so many media organisations have collapsing audiences. We sadly do not expect the senior management at Channel 4 to take this terrible mistake seriously and we expect more of the same.”

How Corbynistas React When They Think Corbyn’s Anti-Semitism Was Said By Boris

Corbynistas were approached this week with anti-Semitic quotes to see if they think the person who said them is fit for office. But there’s a twist! When the Labour activists were told the quotes were said by Boris they said he was unfit for office. Upon being told the truth their squirming is excruciating…

Boris and Other World Leaders Caught Mocking Trump at NATO Dinner

A video shot by CBC has emerged showing Boris, Trudeau, Macron and Princess Anne seemingly mocking Trump for his impromptu 40-minute press conference held yesterday. The worlds’ eyes are refreshing Trump’s Twitter feed as we speak…

The video is mostly subtitled, but Macron and Princess Anne struggle to be made out. Any readers with better ears than Guido and CBC, please do get in touch

A Campaigning Day in the Life of Boris: “I Sometimes Succumb to Flapjack”

The Sun spent a full 16+ hour day with the PM on the campaign trail, in a documentary rather similar to their oldA Day in the Life of David CameronNaturally, this time there weren’t any candid scenes with the family…

Boris: We Will Walk Away if US Insists on NHS in Talks

In his LBC phone-in this morning, Boris has a new line on Corbyn’s NHS attack – that if the US insists on NHS being on the table, he will just walk away. It’s hard for the Labour Party which has for months insisted Boris would love nothing more than No Deal to argue he would be unwilling to walk away from trade talks…

Did YouGov MRP Leak Move Markets?

Looks like the YouGov MRP poll leaked at 18:00, and is giving the Tories a stonking majority.

UPDATE: The YouGov analysis gives Boris a majority of 68. Stonking!

Boris Repeats Apology

Boris asked if he apologise for Islam comments tells reporters

“Obviously whenever we have an incident of anti-Semitism or Islamophobia or whatever in the Conservative Party, we take a zero-tolerance approach … We have a one bounce and we deal with it approach to this. We are going to have an independent inquiry into Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, every manner of prejudice and discrimination, and it will start before Christmas.  Of course and for all the hurt and offence that has been caused – of course we do. All that is intolerable and it’s so important as a country that we don’t allow that kind of thing, and that’s why we’re going to have the independent inquiry.”

Boris Accidentally Announces Huge National Insurance Cut

Speaking to factory workers in Teesside, Boris accidentally let slip a Tory a major manifesto announcement that the Tories will increase the National Insurance threshold to £12,500 if they win the election. Finally, the Tories give us all a tax cut…

The policy clearly hadn’t meant to be blurted out, as subsequently his TV interviews had to be delayed while his team worked out how to address the self-exposed leak.[…] Read the rest

Boris Scraps Corporation Tax Cuts

Following Guido’s reporting that Boris had scrapped reducing income tax in the budget that never was, and he’s scrapping the same income tax cuts in the forthcoming manifesto, Boris has just announced at the CBI he’s also scrapping his pledged corporation tax cuts that would have seen the rate fall from 19% to 17%. […] Read the rest


Arcuri Phoned the Wong Number

Speaking on GMB this morning, Jennifer Arcuri revealed when attempting to phone the PM two Sundays ago, Boris’s mobile was snatched by an unspecified male aide who bizarrely started talking to her in a fake Chinese accent. Guido doesn’t know which aide, there is a Mr Lee in Downing Street…[…] Read the rest

Caller Interrupts BBC Presenter to Defend Boris’ NHS

When the BBC’s Rachel Burden asked Boris if he felt “any sense of shame that the NHS has been brought to its knees by years of Conservative government”, she probably wasn’t expecting the caller – who prompted the NHS discussion – to interrupt, praising how well she had been treated by the service, under Conservative government.[…] Read the rest
