Looks like he's had one too many!

MissAdventure Fri 27-Sep-19 21:41:26

He looks as pissed as a fart!

Urmstongran Fri 27-Sep-19 21:42:27

Or something else ... he seems unbalanced. No. Don’t comment further on that, thank you!

Urmstongran Fri 27-Sep-19 21:43:59

Was that Cameron talking? If so it’s an oldie.

merlotgran Fri 27-Sep-19 21:50:07

I thought it sounded like Corbyn talking.

merlotgran Fri 27-Sep-19 21:51:05

But Gove looks decidedly pissed.

Chewbacca Fri 27-Sep-19 21:52:12

Old news.

jura2 Fri 27-Sep-19 21:52:44

Definitely Corbyn speaking.

Anniebach Fri 27-Sep-19 21:54:49

He wanted the loo

Boosgran Fri 27-Sep-19 21:58:21

Maybe he was unwell. Who cares?

jura2 Fri 27-Sep-19 22:07:05

Chewbacca, this was yesterday- so old news?

I care, boosgran.

Anyone present in the House in that State is of concern, I'd say. But Gove has a Senior Rôle in serious matters currently, so it is serioulsy concerning, imho. He is the most Senior Officer in the Cabinet office after all.

If you don't care- that is up to you. Just ignore.

jura2 Fri 27-Sep-19 22:28:15

Wouldn't you say, that at this crucial time- it is concerning to see the person who has the following responsibilities:

After the Prime Minister, he is the most senior minister in the Cabinet Office. He is responsible for:

Ensuring the UK is ready to leave the EU on 31 October, with or without a deal
Oversight of all government departments’ preparations for Brexit
Oversight of all communications and other government interventions to ensure businesses and citizens get ready for Brexit
Chairing and deputy chairing Cabinet committees
Oversight of the devolution consequences of Brexit


Boosgran Fri 27-Sep-19 22:28:22

No I won’t ignore Jura2 - what state was he in? Are you implying he was drunk? What evidence, and I know how keen you are on evidence you are do you have about his ‘state’?

MissAdventure Fri 27-Sep-19 22:28:54

I would absolutely say he is paralytic.

I was thinking before watching the clip that maybe he was unwell, but its so obvious it looks like he can barely hold himself up.

Boosgran Fri 27-Sep-19 22:31:43

Stop making accusations when you have no idea of the true facts.

MissAdventure Fri 27-Sep-19 22:32:55

Who, me?

Boosgran Fri 27-Sep-19 22:34:07

Sorry no MissA that was to jura2.

Nortsat46 Fri 27-Sep-19 22:35:04

Thank you jura2, interesting link. He looks like he is not in control of his faculties, which surely needs investigation, given his seniority.

merlotgran Fri 27-Sep-19 22:35:04

If he was unwell he'd have surely sought help?

MissAdventure Fri 27-Sep-19 22:35:44

Ah, its ok.
I'll be quiet too now (probably)

Boosgran Fri 27-Sep-19 22:39:58

How do you know he didn’t seek help?

paddyann Fri 27-Sep-19 23:19:43

isn't he one of the top tories who admitted substance abuse,in that case it could be anything stuffed up his nose or smoked or just taking advantage of the subsidised bars in the H ofC.
Isn't it time we got rid of the bars anyway...anyone else drinking in the workplace would be fired on the spot so why would this eegit be allowed to stay at work in the position he's in,unless Johnston is looking for a fall guy?
