Yes. I can see how, faced with the choice, you would trust folk like Johnson, Fox, Rees-Mogg, Leadsom, Gove, Farage etc more huh.gif

The good news for you is that, given the unelectability of the opposition, these chaps (and their ilk) will be at the forefront of UK politics for the foreseeable. So more austerity, more twisting of the screw for those who are least able to manage, a greater diminution of workers rights and the focus of wealth renmaining London-centric.

Good choice eyebrow.gif



Well folks, wishes granted.

Now, who said "be careful what you wish for" rolleyes.gif

Can you give some examples, or are you a world class Seer like your Anti Scottish independence campaign leader of 2014 Blair McDougall?

I thought by now we'd have the usual suspects on telling us all about the bright future we Scots have now that Johnson is in power and will see off Johnny Foreigner.

I thought DJ would have been on by now waxing lyrical with a tear in his eye.

This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

He'll still be celebrating Bojo's coronation to be fair. yes.gif

The UK has one of the most complicated tax systems in the world with 10,042 pages of legislation (as of 2010) and an additional 500 pages of new tax law are created each year – this also makes administration far less cost-effective with the Institute of Economic Affairs concluding that the annual operating costs of the British tax system were more than £11bn in 2012.
