Thinking about the 50p coins which have been minted and are not now being used, what else can you list that was 'definite' and how long did it last before being pulled?

I'll start with an easy one: SJ said there would definitely be a budget in November and then, less than 24 hours later, said there wouldn't.

"We must deliver on the democratic vote to leave. We must respect the will of the people."

We have not seen the "strong and stable" government we were promised, nor have we seen democracy in action. To ignore the 48% who voted to remain can hardly be seen as democratic. Also, since when do civilized, democratic societies embrace lies, and more lies?

We will leave the EU on 31st October do or die


"I can say what ever I like and lie and lie and lie.

I know I'm lying, you know I'm lying, but what are you going to do about it????

I can lie as much as I like and get away with it just like Donald Trump"

It seems there are no consequences to lying or illegality even, so BJ can get away with anything.

Not a single statement I have listed above was true, there are loads more.

We are spoiled for choice.

Although it might seem amusing what is actually happening is that Johnson is in fact undermining democracy.

Respect and trust is st an all time lie, and Johnson is enduring it dink’s further snd further

I have read that there may be clever selling on the Royal Mint website in the interests of damage limitation!

Bill Clinton's " I did not have sex with that woman" pales into insignificance next to BJ's sexual shenanigans and lies. People were shocked back then but so many (brexit supporters) now accept that infidelity and blatant dishonesty are the norm for BJ?

There will never be a sea borer between Ireland and the mainland. I hear that Boris is on the naughty step in Parliament.

I love this thread, but....

Every exposure of his mendacity and manipulation, increases his lead in the opinion polls.

I do not understand it. The man is completely Teflon-coated.
Why is the public so hell-bent on having a man with his record of failure, lying and mismanagement of public money as PM? I am beyond baffled and completely despairing.

Hetty58 Sun 27-Oct-19 09:29:04

The lies, u-turns and ridiculous statements have always been there, but now the cover-ups aren't even bothered with!

New UK passports will be blue once we leave. Mine needs renewing and I keep holding on...I want a blue one!!

That’s a really good reason for wanting to leave the EU Juliet

I will issue all MP’s and members of the Lords with P45’s and start afresh

Jaycee5 Sun 27-Oct-19 10:09:47

Amagram I agree. It is baffling. It is, unfortunately, the power of the corporate media who want their tax affairs untouched and Leveson 2 not invoked.
It is sad as people are ignoring the fact that austerity is still happening and still killing people.

Yellowhammer is only a 'worst case'. That is not what it said, it said 'base case'
