Page 126 of Brexit
anyone else remember the Have I got news for you tub of lard episode;)
I guess the 2 women above have got some free publicity from the incident, which was probably the original point.

And it feeds directly into my point re. political advertising not being the main problem this election...
Peter Oborne: My dossier of the lies, falsehoods and misrepresentations of Boris Johnson and his government is now published:
Basically a list of Bozo's torrent of diarrhoea that leavers are happy to glug down as long as 'brexit gets done' (his disastrous deal categorically does not get brexit done btw).
Oooh, that's a good one
I thought Johnson's comment about Stalin was in particularly bad taste. He might have said Hitler & the Jews for the same effect, but went for the more obscure reference so's not to offend.
However, to pre-empt Si's inevitable response, there would probably be just as many falsehoods coming from any political camp you can mention. Mind you, they're not the ones trying to hammer through a disastrous Brexit without the best interests of the people at heart, so the lies from Johnson's team have that little extra weight to them.

It's good that you recognise my attempts at nuanced balance...

Good call, very pretentious...
Farage will not field any Brexit party candidates in constituencies with a sitting Tory MP
So in lieu of the Tories adamantly refusing any offers of a collaboration with the one-policy party, He's just opportunistically stepped his party aside in generally pro-Tory constituencies with a view to take credit for their success when (if) they win.
Aaron Banks does what's best for Aarron Banks. Probably scared that if the Brexit Party don't do this, they'll split the vote and he wont get Brexit after all.
Or perhaps Boris threatened to release the report on Russian interference before the election.
