Well if you're looking for role models!?  Good luck trying to find one from any party within the HoC. 

What a ridiculous thing to say given that there are over 600 MPs and you probably only know a handful of them who you’ve seen on the telly. 🙄

The Papers...................

Today its 5 - 2 to the Conservatives.

 

The Times -  “Johnson to offer tax cut after Brexit”

 The Telegraph - “Tax cuts for millions within days of Brexit”  

The Sun presents Johnson’s “10 commandments” for his first 100 days.

The Express is “Speechless!” because Jeremy Corbyn said he watches the Queen’s address on Christmas morning, when it doesn’t air until 3pm.

The Mail likes that one too: “Corbyn caught out over Queen”.

 

The i - “NHS cuts killed my mother”.

Mirror - “As nurses use foodbanks, Boris is Mr Greedy”

 

Guardian - “Trump leaves Nato talks after ridicule from allies”

The Metro - “Trump gets the hump”.

The FT - “M&G halts trading in £2.5bn fund as high outflows spark sell-off fears”

 

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/dec/05/thursday-briefing-pique-trump-after-farcical-exit-back-to-election

 

I understand there's more in 'The Canary' and 'Metro'. I score this 1-1 .

If we're talking total circulation numbers the Conservative bias is massive.

Only because you’ve been told that it is.

 

In the real world, a third Tory term along with the proposed Brexit will have the country on its knees within a couple of years.

I’ve never in my life been told who to vote for. I’ve voted for different parties over the years and I make up my mind after careful consideration.

The MP's Expenses Scandal left very few MPs with a satisfactory reputation. They were nearly all at it. It ranged from morally dubious to outright criminal but very few MPs were prosecuted, which did a lot to destroy the public's view of justice and the honourability of House of Commons. (Jeremy Corbyn, incidently, had the lowest expenses of all of them. An honest man.)

Did he?  From 2019:

 

 

VOTERS FURIOUS AT HOW MUCH CORBYN AND ABBOTT HAVE CLAIMED IN EXPENSES

https://politicaluk.co.uk/2019/02/voters-furious-at-how-much-corbyn-and-abbott-have-claimed-in-expenses/

 

Quote

According to mpsexpenses.info, Jeremy Corbyn’s expenses claim stood at an eye-watering £174,114.43 from the 1 Oct 2017 — 30 Sep 2018.

 

If we minus the staff and travel costs, which stand at £154,570 the final figure is £19,544.

 

To realise how much Corbyn and Abbott are claiming, we have to compare their figures to Jacob Rees-Mogg.

 

Jacob claimed between 1 Oct 2017 — 30 Sep 2018 £125,057. Far lower than Corbyn’s and Abbott’s total costs.

 

Minus staff and travel, which amass to £124,123, we can determine that Jacob only claimed £934 in expenses!

 

Perhaps you're trying to cite nine year old material?

 

From 2010:


Islington North MP Jeremy Corbyn is the country's lowest expenses claimer

https://www.islingtongazette.co.uk/news/politics/islington-north-mp-jeremy-corbyn-is-the-country-s-lowest-expenses-claimer-1-748369

 

As for your "honest man", what was that rubbish he was spouting about the Queen's Speech all about?  

 

"I watch the Queens speech" (even though he doesn't like the monarchy)

"I watch it in the morning" (no you don't, its not on then)

"I watch the repeat"  (what before its even been broadcast?)

 

The real story is "old man doesn't know what time of day it is".  Do we really want such a bumbling fool as leader?

Perhaps the leaders get a Beta Cassette in advance of the public airing.

It seems to happen with all speeches when the morning news says that so and so will be making a speech and is expected to say “blah,blah blah”.

On the grand scale of things I would say that Boris is the most accomplished 🤥 liar by some distance.

Perhaps that should be his next panel game.

”Would I lie to you?”. You bet I would.

Followed by a guest appearance on “The unbelievable truth”

Now Javid is bidding for a place on the show with his claims that the Tories have reduced homelessness😂 but Boris retains his position by repeatedly barking  that we have 7 days to get Brexit done.🤣.

Think he is confusing days with years.

What you really mean is some, very few, did wrong; but you dont know which ones so you just see them all as on the take?

Lies, damned lies and Boris...

 

Anyone who supports this liar, this cheat, this misogynist, this racist can only count themselves in the same camp.

 

We should not be giving this sort of abhorrent person a platform, but thankfully, we are not a dictator state yet - although we could well be if he gets in - but as we are not we give him a platform to peddle his lies.

No. He really did not. This is fake news that keeps doing the rounds and a good reason to fact check things - which with the modern whizzy internet is easy...

 

https://www.quora.com/Is-Jeremy-Corbyn-s-expenses-record-the-most-notably-honest-in-history-of-the-British-Parliament

 

"In fact, interestingly his expenses record is significantly worse than Theresa May’s. If you look at http://www.mpsexpenses.info you’ll find she actually claimed less than Corbyn every single year since 2010, "

 

Now I dont think Corbyn was necessarily doing anything wrong. But it certainly wasn't the lowest....
