Boris Johnson is laughing at you, yes you, the ordinary person and we should quit voting for them, not enabling them. Yet people voted for this obsessive liar, despite knowing he was full of baloney.
People are just mooing animals to the Tories who can be easily convinced of any old rubbish. But we can no longer blame the politicians – fool me once shame on them, fool me repeatedly, shame on me!
And Boris Johnson is laughing because he knows he’ll probably get re-elected. But the problem is we say the self-same thing about Labour when they do get elected and it’s about time we had some new players.
This Tory government aren’t out of touch with reality, they just couldn’t care less about the people as long as their fat snouts are in the trough.
It’s just a shame that Boris Johnson didn’t put on the side of a bus that energy prices would go up – nobody would have voted for Brexit then. Come to think of it, they probably wouldn’t have voted for Boris either!
