Apparently Boris Johnson, favourite to be the next Conservative leader, tweeted that he'd just voted in the local elections, but subsequently deleted said tweet upon being informed that there were no local elections in that there London.
Lying is as natural as breathing to politicians, it really is.
Don't worry Nev, he won't get in. And before too long you'll have your dream of us all working in government run potato communes 51 weeks a year looking forward to our week's break at a government run dacha in Hartlepool.

Well I'm pretty much a lifelong Conservative voter (apart from when Duncan-Smith & Howard were in charge) and if Boris Johnson does end up as leader it just shows up the total lack of ability from within the political ranks. The man is , frankly, a walking disaster. The typical buffoon who everyone invites to a party to see what his next overt display of stupidity will bring.

FFS the bloke even manages to make Corbyn appear statesmanlike, a feat which hitherto I think most people would have considered impossible.

And the gaffe over voting on Twitter of all places just sums up his naivety. A total opportunist, as his about turn just before the Brexit referendum proves. A committed supporter of the EU until he saw an opportunity to advance his own career. If anyone needed proof that Britain is fast becoming the laughing stock of the civilised world, having the choice of Johnson or Corbyn as our leader is surely the proof.

There's no evidence that either is 'fact' actually, as it's only been suggested he might have voted in his constituency.
But since the tweet was deleted quick sharp, it appears Boris didn't want his whereabouts at the time he said he was voting scrutinised too closely.
Then again maybe one of his minions just wanted to tweet something about local elections and then thought better of it.
Spin and lies, they're all the same.

Never really liked MPs not living in their constituencies if I'm honest mate,doesn't... sit ... :lol:
right with me....but It's happened since forever..
Your second point more closer to the reason for him hitting the delete button sharpish.

Spin and lies mate bang on...................But in reference to our Press/media...
80/90% of their "shock" headlines/titles are crap....I think they have their footie journos

The way some journalists spin it you'd imagine Nigel Farage's outrage at being asked about policies other than Brexit was some kind of outrage.
Has there ever been a more single policy politician or party in the history of politics?

And just to give an example here, Farage has, in the past, advocated an American style insurance based healthcare system. Trouble is a lot of people think it's like BUPA or car insurance. A few hundred quid a year and everything is hunky dory.
Five minutes researching the average yearly costs of US health insurance is a bit of an eye opener. The average family pays just on $10,000 with a deductable -- in our insurance parlance excess -- of roughly $8500. For an individual it's not much better at $4000 and a deductible of $4500.

Is everyone really so obsessed with Brexit that this stuff doesn't matter?

Thing is mate..he doesn't hide from the fact....hence...UKIP...Brexit Party...He forms parties with just
the one target..one specific aim,it's not to get into power and be PM..it's about creating a voice
a movement...Pressurising.
He knows.."Brexit party."...straight away you've got half the votes gone,same with UKIP...
Personally not really in favour with that tactic...in this instance,he would need to be negotiating
to have an effect..
That means he needs to have a power base in parliament,which means you need other "Proper"
policies.
Tactic here is get as many MEPs as he can...let the EURO bods know,we are serious about leaving,
and don't be fooled by the BBC and other Media Remainers,or a March by under 2% of the voting public
as representative of public opinion...you watch our TV, read our papers,listen to our MPs,
you'd think we were a country of remainers,when in fact remainers are in the minority.

Was a UKIP guy on this morning...ITV Morgan/Reid firing question,thought he was on to talk
Brexit...but hit him with Racial Stuff instead...somewhere in their manifesto it says...under
security/immigration...words to the effect of...we must be sure as far as possible that people
entering from islamic countries..do not have history of terrorist organisations or follow a
literalist and extremist interpretation of islam.
Thats it.... he's Racist the Party are racist.... Dogs with a bone....
Instead of discussing...interpretation of it....which is the problem,can be seen 2 ways,depends
on which side of fence your on...its an attack on a what they say is a racist,but gets TV viewers
I Spose.....Hooked me in.... :lol:

Mike Hookam blokes name ...deputy leader....not to keen on Farage either,UKIP
really are a shambles...played it right...with a name change..."UKIP" could be in Parliament
now with 50+ seats or so...

I don't even think it's about creating a voice, mate. I think there's a set of politicians who use politics to service their own ego.
Farage, Johnson, Corbyn, Sturgeon, are all of that Ilk. I wouldn't trust any of them to light my barbecue, let alone run a country.
