    While I can't claim to have anything more than a general "view from 10,000 feet" [3,048 Metres] understanding of the English issues, the cultural parallel with Trump's election is stunning. The Left immediately blames ignorance, bigotry, and stupidity for the result, thus insulting the majority of English voters. The very idea that views different from their own might have been compelling or superior is not even contemplated. The idea that the English people can do without Rule by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels is simply too radical to be accepted.

    Fuck the Left, wherever it resides.

    Well he didnt really promise much other than brexit and my take is that nobody really believed him anyway on the nurses and police. I think that brexit will occupy his time for a couple of years and ensure he can only do limited harm. His new MPs will have a shock when they open their surgery doors to a load of people who have problems with benefits payments or damp flats. It will change the tory party and maybe find some humanity. Not holding my breath though. As brexit destroys our economy the poor folk who voted tory should be the first to suffer.

    Well, having disparaged working-class men as “likely to be drunk, criminal, aimless, feckless and hopeless”, Johnson got their vote. How's that for irony?

    I would guess you are wrong on the amount of damage he can do. The Tories, wary of opposing their newly found Dear Leader, will rubber-stamp BoJo's deal in January, and thereafter it's a negotiation team wrangling with the EU over the permanent status of their relation. That won't take up much of BoJo's time, as he doesn't read briefing papers anyway. All the while, he will use his parliamentary majority for what the Tories do best, create more paupers, and make their lives even more miserable. What else is there? The Tories just got the worst NHS-report card ever, and even if they do nothing, things will be miserable enough already. You mentioned their "finding some humanity." Good one, Tom.

    Whatever, BoJo ominously promised those who would rather remain will not be ignored. And they will "unite and level up". In case you can't explain what all that's supposed to mean, I fear you share that with BoJo himself. There's a good chance that five years of buffoonery of that kind is going to wear on us a bit, eh?

    What has this Bob Dylan song to do with the human history of the last 2 million years? Since about 20,000 years for example human beings are dominated from the species "dogs". And whatever changed within this 20,000 years was not able to bring human beings to the idea to like to be free from dogs. Meanwhile even the species "cats" conquered us and makes us to their slaves.

    Tommy, Wales is in real trouble. The EU will no longer provide Wales with the huge financial assistance it has been giving it and Boris Johnson doesn't have the budget to match what the EU was giving Wales. How will Wales survive?

    Does this mean you may have to get a job and start supporting yourself?

    That's why the USA liked to isolate GB and was sucessful in manipulating the Brits to do so?
