The Prime Minister
I think it absolutely bizarre that a London Labour Member of Parliament should ignore the role of the present Mayor of London, who is, frankly, not a patch on the old guy. I left him 600 million and he has squandered it on press officers. Sadiq Khan has squandered it on press officers, and the faster we get rid of him and get more police officers out on the street, the better.

Whut?

Boris says he would rather be dead in a ditch than delay Brexit.

Can we put that to a referendum, please!

I see no reason for that to be an either/or choice.

Boris should read about the "Last Ditchers" circa 1910 in the fight over the veto power of the House of Lords and how it ended for them.....

So your PM must not have any balls. Any real man would rolling on floor in agony if he had been kicked in the nads this many times in one week. Did he have them removed when he accepted Putin's help on Brexit?
