    Tory Leadership debate

    Did anyone watch it? Like a fool I sat through it all.

    A complete shambles and I honestly wouldn't trust any of them to run my bath.

    No answers on crucial questions...yet one of these jokers will actually be in charge of our country in a few weeks.

    Absolutely shocking.

    I watched it, a complete waste of time. Just another episode of the Beebs long running 'Get Boris' campaign. They must have had a team of researchers on his case as Emily had a clipboard full of Boris quotes, which she reeled off with monotonous regularity. She even tried to derail him with a comment about the London congestion charge, while he was responding to a question on Northern Ireland. Every opportunity was taken to attack him and quite predictably the token Muslim was wheeled on so they could bring up his letterbox comment. A token teenager was wheeled on to virtue-signal about the environment, after Greta the BBC just had to do that didn't they, a hysterical woman looked like she was going to burst into tears at any moment because her husband, who worked in property, could lose his job as a result of a no deal Brexit, or so she said, there was no evidence. On and on it went, I stuck it out to the end out of curiosity, but I was mightily relieved when it was all over, the only highlights being when Emily kept getting irritated by Boris's astute tactic of constantly and studiously ignoring her interruptions.

    There were no winners, and just the one loser, the BBC, for inflicting this tedious pretence of a serious political debate on it's viewers. It also illustrated how wise Boris was not to get involved in the C4 farce, he'll go far that lad.

    I would rather have a heart attack and die than sit through one hour watching these Tory cretins being debated by the BBC.

    A wise decision to avoid it BT, you would have learned absolutely nothing new, we're all already well aware of where these people stand on all the issues, and it's only Tory MPs and Party members making the decision anyway, so what was the point, apart from the obvious one that it was an opportunity for the lefty BBC to indulge itself in it's favourite pastime of Tory bashing. The dire state of the Tory Party, and indeed politics in the UK itself, is exemplified by the rise of Roderick Stewart, if this Old Etonian half-wit is in the running to become leader of the Tory Party and thus our PM, as indeed he is, then God help us all.

    Apparently he was a bright boy at Eton BT, and as we know only the brightest of the bright go there. I love the nickname he's acquired, due to his self-professed expertise on middle-eastern affairs, Florence of Belgravia. Genius.

    "The BBC is facing questions after an alleged anti-Semitic Imam and a Labour Party council candidate were allowed to grill Tory leadership hopefuls on Islamophobia during last night's live debate.

    Abdullah Patel asked Boris Johnson if his remarks on Islam "had consequences", but the Imam's Twitter account revealed a number of controversial posts including claiming the abuse of Jews was being "abused by the Right" to further a political agenda.

    Meanwhile, the man who asked the last question was Aman Thacker - a man hired by Labour HQ as a legal assistant in 2018 and who stood for election for Southwark council in the same year, according to Guido Fawkes.

    Referring to the inclusion of the Imam, MP Nadine Dorries said the "fault was with the BBC" insisting the broadcaster "should have checked" before allowing Mr Patel to take part in the live debate. She added: "Instead they used an Imam with a truly disturbing anti semitic twitter feed. It was a wholly biased, disgraceful 'get Boris' exercise. Why should anyone pay a licence fee for that level of attempted sabotage?"


    Nothing new really, it's what the BBC does.

    That is so unfair BT, the Tories love the rich, and if you chuck a bit of your riches their way they might love you enough to find you a seat in the House of Lords. They are not ungrateful.

    What the phuck is this Tory Leadership farce all about? Just give it to Eton Chops alias the Japanese Kiddy Basher and then we can all get ready for a No Deal Brexit.

    Don't know if you have noticed sinkov, but the Tories read your "Eton half-wit" comment and jettisoned the cretin?

    The media loved him BT, you only have to wave a mobile phone around and the media are all over you. Boris's team, (Williamson) used the half-wit to get rid their main opponent Raab, and then dumped him. The fool thought he was popular in the Tory party, but Jezza has more chance of becoming Tory leader than he has. If he's not joining Chuka in the LibDems within the year I'll be very surprised.

    They know Boris is the winner BT, but I would imagine they're playing it out to the bitter end in order for Boris to pile up the votes. If he wins by a landslide it might just give him enough authority to hold the rabble together as the deadline for leaving approaches. Or maybe it won't.
