I cannot believe I am seeing this. Totally unbelievable.

MawB Tue 10-Dec-19 05:49:41

???

QuaintIrene Tue 10-Dec-19 06:03:52

What ?

inkcog Tue 10-Dec-19 06:04:12

Take a glance at the DM, Maw. Is this a spoof? I mean has he really done this in real life.

MawB Tue 10-Dec-19 06:06:58

Sorry, don’t read the DM!
Can you do a link?

inkcog Tue 10-Dec-19 06:09:57

OK, will try. I don't " read " it, sometimes I click on it for fun.

Looks legit to me 😉

MawB Tue 10-Dec-19 07:58:14

Quite entertaining, as is the JC by the fireside video.
Thanks for the link flowers

Just listened to Hugh Grant’s interview on Radio 4 in which he points out that the clip omitted one of the cards Andrew Lincoln holds up in the real film, the one which says “Christmas is when you tell the truth”

Hmm I wonder why BJ’s spin doctors missed out that one.....hmm

Great advertising campaign!
It’s got everybody talking!

Anniebach Tue 10-Dec-19 09:25:10

Hugh Grant has been campaigning with Luciana Berger

Correction; Johnson copies @UKLabour ‘s spoof of Love actually doorstep scene for plagiarised campaign video
It was done by a Dr Rosena on the 22nd November

Ah thanks Maw- I knew of the cards was missing- makes totaly sense now.

SICK sad

trisher Tue 10-Dec-19 10:53:53

Ugh finger down the throat job. And isn't it a mistake to have Boris attempting to impress a young female voter? It reminds you of his abysmal relationship record. Watch out love. It's not your vote he's after!!

Labaik Tue 10-Dec-19 11:09:12

Does anyone know how to do a link to the Trumpton spoof on it?

varian Tue 10-Dec-19 11:29:59

Hugh Grant explains the reason to vote tatically against Boris Johnson for the best chance of getting a second referendum now that people know more about the implications of brexit.

Well, that has ruined that film for me now tchsad

CosyCrafter Tue 10-Dec-19 11:58:22

Yikes..

jura2 Tue 10-Dec-19 12:00:10

Which clever Granny can do the missing card about 'Christmas is when you tell the TRUTH'

CosyCrafter Tue 10-Dec-19 12:14:52

Can't take the credit just copied from elsewhere.

inkcog Tue 10-Dec-19 12:30:24

I cannot believe politics has come to this. Trump and his idiotic tweets and so on.

Weren't these supposed to be people we admire, strive to emulate, look up to.

FarNorth Tue 10-Dec-19 12:59:11

A working majority for the Tories is the last thing I want for Xmas.

That ad is designed to appeal to people who have very few thought processes going on.

lemongrove Tue 10-Dec-19 14:08:37

Oh come on, it’s amusing, a lot more so than Corbyn sitting by the fireside reading mean tweets to himself 😁

Gonegirl Tue 10-Dec-19 14:23:03

at least it's nice to have one with Christmas music

Gonegirl Tue 10-Dec-19 14:27:48

original Love Actually one

Boris hasn't quite got the charm.
