    Would love to know what the black paper is about.
    To stop the paps getting a shot of his notes?

    No belt Boris?

      No belt is a common flex among elite individuals; lets everyone know that your suit has been tailored, rather than being bought off the rack ;)

        What about buttoning your shirt and tucking it into your pants [pic #3]? Nothing shouts “class” like a muffiny belly peeping out because you haven’t done up your bottom button. And that might also explain why he doesn’t wear a belt. Also, in fairness to Leo, he does make an effort in this department.

        1. Rob_G

          As the saying goes – ‘money can buy you many things, but it can’t buy you class’.

          Indeed, Leo is normally well turned-out (apart from the oddly-broad tie).

          If the pants don’t have belt loops then it’s tailored and for a tubby chap like Piffle, button-on braces would be common. Pants with an adjustment tab really wouldn’t work for a fellow with his rotund waistline. So I think it’s quite likely he’s rather sloppily out without a belt.

    Shower of masticators! [Boris says the Brits have been masticating Brexit for the past three years]

    Also, the govt press boy called questions from RTE, BBC, The Indo and ITV. No Irish Times, take that Pat Leahy!

      Yep, and he got the power handshake in too.
      Note how he’s the one using his other hand on BJs arm.
      It’s practised to show an ‘upper hand’ so to speak and Obama was brilliant at it.
      Once you notice it, you’ll see nearly all people of power doing it. Funny when both try it.
      Try it at your next meeting and wield your power!

            Leo is giving Johnson a reality check by the sounds of it- and he is right- no deal Brexit is the beginning, not the end.

    Markets seem to think that Boris is now assessing his options, and, given the DUP is no longer needed, with Boris down 25 Tory MPs which makes the 10 DUP support irrelevant, and given his limited options, he may plumb for what was previously rejected, a Northern Ireland-only backstop which effectively puts a border between NI and GB down the Irish sea.

    The DUP will be outraged but are, for now, convinced it won’t happen.

    With the chaos in British politics, a Northern Ireland-only backstop may be the lesser of all evils. It would mean frictionless movement of goods and people across the Irish border, but would mean goods checks between Northern Ireland and Britain.

      SNP are insisting that any condition keeping NI in a customs union should also apply to Scotland.
      clever move.

        1. Cian

          No problem. Hadrian’s wall already exist, they just need to put checkpoints on the A1, A7, A74 and they are sorted.

    2. class wario

      for all the talk by the right here and the Brits about the EU abandoning us, it would be quite amusing to see the Brits essentially abandon the unionists

          What Have I Done To Deserve This?

          btw you can’t use PSB singularly anymore – there’s a completely separate 3 piece (fairly decent also) electronica outfit called Public Service Broadcasting

    I watched the event and saying that Leo “absolutely *shreds* boris” is a bit rich. He was firm, no doubt about it, but this was after he waxed lyrically about warlord Winston Churchill and purposely added Roman references knowing well that Johnson studied Classics up at Oxford. Bit of a lick I thought.

    1. some old queen

      I think you will find there was a bit of a dig in the classics reference- and he wasn’t just being firm- he laid it on the line- the other boyo spoke in riddles.

    2. Pat

      No fan of Leo or his party but in fairness he did well here. Firm, straight talking and that classical dig was class. Fair play
