He wants nothing to do with this Brexit shit show.
snake is in the grass
who wants to run a sinking ship?
The UK Trump ha ha
he has decided to be a hair donor for donald trump
His being an author of the mess doesn't make him a candidate??
Presumably he's worked out he doesn't have the numbers because we all saw where his ambitions lay.
Suprising... Now we know that he didn't use the #Brexit vote to become PM... He truly believed in it... #UKTories #UKCons
that's even more worrying that he actually had faith in brexit
I think he was going to run until he saw how much of a screw up leaving has been so far @Chrisisfake @RealTrevinShu @cnnbrk
I agree.
I don't think anyone can make a judgement anywhere like that at this point.
expected PM to invoke art. 50 & won't do it boris priority is always himself
Thats why I said "so far" it might get better, but its not been a great week @Gus_Harriador @Chrisisfake @RealTrevinShu @cnnbrk
I think it's been an absolutely brilliant week.
Apart from the market dip, UK credit rating loss, and that £350 mill "mistake"... @Gus_Harriador @Chrisisfake @RealTrevinShu @cnnbrk
Well they were all predicted... People didn't listen now they have to live with their
Why is it a mistake???
Well a lot of think that we should've renegotiated our deal with the EU...
We've that opportunity still (2 years) but our leverage has decreased significantly
No it has not diminished at all.
It really has, the EU are going to make an example of us <- their actual words @Gus_Harriador @RealTrevinShu @Chrisisfake @cnnbrk
I'm not interested in the small minded drivel. We're interdependent, hurt us and it hurts them.
How would it hurt them? 27 member states vs 1 who decided to vote to leave...
...because the UK economy imports shit loads from the EU...
It was quoted somewhere the impact on Germany would be about 0.5% which is a hit they will take @Gus_Harriador @RealTrevinShu @Chrisisfake
I'm sure their exporters will love hearing that all the way up the supply chain.
To prevent other countries thinking it would be a good idea to leave the EU @Gus_Harriador @RealTrevinShu @Chrisisfake
This is the type of stuff that initially pushed me towards LEAVE. It's just scaremongering.
That was in the Telegraph which was a Leave paper I think @Gus_Harriador @RealTrevinShu @Chrisisfake
I don't read the UK press, I think they're a disgrace. All of them.
If you don't read them how did their "scaremongering" convince you to vote leave? @Gus_Harriador @RealTrevinShu @Chrisisfake
...and I didn't say they convinced me to leave
I wasn't referring to the press, I was referring to the REMAIN campaign.
Fair enough, I was referring to a news story, you meant Remain camp, crossed wires there @Gus_Harriador @RealTrevinShu @Chrisisfake
Why have you been sold 'us and them'. I work in Frankfurt and have not heard anything of the sort.
Well the EU member states are pissed didn't you see them attempt to humiliate Farage 48 hours ago?
Farage doesn't need anyone to humiliate him he does it fine on his own @RealTrevinShu @Gus_Harriador @Chrisisfake
It will hurt all sides but the EU member states are pissed & pissed off countries/people do not make
rational decisions... (Ex voting to leave EU & EU member states trying to take revenge)
Sorry, that's defeatist nonsense.
Well IMO they should all go home for a few months & comeback with cooler heads...
That's what will happen...
Hasn't so far... The EU member states trying to humiliate the biggest pro leave person is proof it
I couldn't care less what they said to Farage.
You're guessing.
I don't care about Farage. He's a twat. The UK has a strong position and that won't change.
The pound dropping & the rating agencies lowering the UK credit rating = leverage diminished
Uncertainty is ok, but an hour after the result they say 1 of the key arguments is wrong @RealTrevinShu @Gus_Harriador @Chrisisfake @cnnbrk
He could've run... Recent polling had him in 2nd place...
To be honest im surprised he's dropped out, unless he's waiting for the next general election to run @RealTrevinShu @Chrisisfake @cnnbrk
Darrell Hammond cancels flight to Heathrow…
reminds me of a rat and the sinking ship
Is @BorisJohnson related to @realDonaldTrump? They seem to have a couple of things in common #Brexit
not brave enough. I wish Farage can run for PM.
He campaigned for brexit, and now he shys away to face the truth. What else boris?!
why he fuckin look like trump ??
Instead Boris is training to complete in Rio Olympics
once again.another look at Boris the Spiders hair style,MUst share trumpfs and..oh heck, nevermind u get the idea..........
had to do a double check. For a 2nd I thought that was @realDonaldTrump same hair. Lol
he even looks like forest trump...
Today #Bexit day should be declared a Public Holiday. All part of the #Tory game plan of keeping @TheresaMay_MP as the dark horse
Typical instigator....stir up the mess and then get back into the shadows and let someone else deal with it.
Smart move Boris.
+@mattklewis He who kills the king will never wear the crown....
Of course he can't bear to face the defeat that will follow Brexit. Now the mask is off!
+@BorisJohnson knows he s incapable of fixing his BREXIT. What an IDIOT #ToryLeadership
what a joke..give this man a big red nose
Drumphf and him share the hair!! And NO trump we will never support hitler! That is a ridiculous. JILL OR GARY OR hillary,never him!
look at God
thank the Lordy lord!
after he #screwed the #UK and the rest of the #world . . . ! #Brexit a big #Bistake
he historically fucked the uk up, gained monetary success, (bet on failure..ei 2008 US bubble burst), and rides on into the sunset
is he smarter than what people thought initially after the vote??
i dont think u guys get it...if he wanted to be PM, it means he did beleive in Brexit...this move means there are other motives $$$
Is that because who knows that the next Prime Minister is almost doomed and he's waiting to pick up the pieces!
Boris is no idiot. He realizes that the next PM is damned over Brexit.. Either way... Cameron's end game has worked.
He conned the public into voting to leave the EU and cost the UK billions of dollars. What the hell was his objective ?
Well done Boris. You've done enough damage to the country already.
I already said this, but I repeat myself. The man is a joke. "@cnnbrk: Pro-Brexit camp... "
of course, he made a giant mess and nobody wants to clean it up.
oh man! You guys know you're screwed when Boris is quitting! Lol good luck!
Let NaMo find a proxy-PM for Great Britain.
thank you c o n m a n
Even Boris Johnson has regrets?!
"One Dumpsterfire on world stage is enough" says Boris
Create the problem, avoid the consequence....
Thank goodness!
that's a shame he's a smart guy the e u will now crumble it's own
that way, He's "irresponsible" for his actions...
#BorisJohnson #Brexit #Borexit sounds like someone took on more than he could handle. Coward, no follow through. #REGREXIT
GOOD NEWS! Maybe parliament VOTE to over ride brexit to end NEW MESS it caused. VERY IRRESPONSIBLE; MAYBE NOT TOO LATE?
