    Perhaps if lying political scum was getting real jail sentences, there would be honest politicians in Parliament? It's not hard not to lie - and let's not forget, they are doing it for their personal gain, this is obtaining money by deception - fraud.

    One of them needs some jail time pour encourager les autres.
    Maybe a few more than one for good measure.

    Home Secretary Sajid Javid wrote on Twitter: 'Very glad to see the court case against Boris Johnson thrown out. Freedom of speech feels increasingly challenged - we should always seek to debate political arguments in the open rather than close them down.'
    Yet he won't debate it and when proved wrong, won't admit it so that's bollocks from another lying little tulip...

    He didn't face a trial and didn't even attend.

    Speaking outside court, Mr Ball said he had spent more than the £300,000 he raised on the case, leaving him in "massive debt".

    I can't recall the story, but I remember reading something like...

    "We'll need to get the Prime Minister involved. I'll call him in his prison cell".
    "Your PM is in prison?".
    "Oh yes. As soon as politicians are elected, we imprison them. It saves time."
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

    Maybe, but then many people may make incorrect claims that they honestly think are true. Should we all do umpteen hours of research before we say anything? Is every point somebody makes supposed to be tested in a court of law?

    Boris Johnson described gay people as "bumboys", compared equal marriage to three men marrying a dog, discussed beating up a journalist with a criminal, called black people "piccaninnies" with "watermelon smiles", and was sacked twice for dishonesty.

    Is there a link for that or is it just one of your brain farts?

    Mind you, I suspect it would appeal to Tory party members.....

    Google too difficult for you?

    Before becoming the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson wrote that "the Queen has come to love the Commonwealth, partly because it supplies her with regular cheering crowds of flag-waving piccaninnies." He later apologised for the article.
    Mind you, in good company:

    The term was controversially used ("wide-grinning picaninnies") by the British Conservative politician Enoch Powell when he quoted a letter in his "Rivers of Blood" speech on 20 April 1968.

    You can see why he feels at home in the EU!


    Brexit news: Crowdfunder behind Boris Johnson court case spent THOUSANDS in donations | Politics | News | Express.co.uk

    But a spending report Mr Ball has posted on his Brexit Justice campaign website have brought his own outgoings under the spotlight. The report shows £47,000 was taken out for his own needs, including paying himself a salary of more than £36,000 over the combined two years.

    More than £6,000 has been spent on a rented, high security flat in the London business district of Canary Wharf to use both as a home and office.
    .........
    He told the MailOnline: “As I felt the case got closer to being actionable I began to think about my own personal security and safety a lot more.

    lets hope he thought about benefit in kind and tax !
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.
