    Watching the Tories getting the bumbling buffoon Boris as their leader and our Prime minister is scary.

    Boris is saying very little as he is an accident waiting to happen. He will screw up Brexit.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    It is mental isn't it? Like some dystopian nightmare made real. A bloke famous for telling blatant lies, making up quotes, being a bit racist, and fucking up the one cabinet job he ever had is going to win because it the age of celebrity-phone-vote-your-favourite-PM culture

    I am just asking a question here as I am just not clued up, but what has Boris done that is racist?

    It is said that the Queen has come to love the Commonwealth, partly because it supplies her with regular cheering crowds of flag-waving picaninnies; and one can imagine that Blair, twice victor abroad but enmired at home, is similarly seduced by foreign politeness. They say he is shortly off to the Congo. No doubt the AK47s will fall silent, and the pangas will stop their hacking of human flesh, and the tribal warriors will all break out in Watermelon smiles to see the big white chief touch down in his big white British taxpayer-funded bird.
    Daily Telegraph 10 January 2002
    The problem is not that we were once in charge, but that we are not in charge any more... Consider Uganda, pearl of Africa, as an example of the British record. … the British planted coffee and cotton and tobacco, and they were broadly right... If left to their own devices, the natives would rely on nothing but the instant carbohydrate gratification of the plantain. You never saw a place so abounding in bananas: great green barrel-sized bunches, off to be turned into matooke. Though this dish (basically fried banana) was greatly relished by Idi Amin, the colonists correctly saw that the export market was limited... The best fate for Africa would be if the old colonial powers, or their citizens, scrambled once again in her direction; on the understanding that this time they will not be asked to feel guilty.

    Hopefully this quote will be more accurate

    Yyyyeah gonna say that first one is not the greatest.....



    Now the second one....that I believe is up for interpretation. Inartfully phrased of course as Boris is wont to do...but under colonization (horrible as it was) there were SOME mutually beneficial things albeit those didn't outweigh the horrors of say King Leopold II's Belgian Congo...but due to colonization you got Gandhi, economies improved, spread of technologies to help with production and agriculture. Now with China and Russia colonizing Africa we'll see how that goes, I'm going to guess like most things those nations do it'll end poorly and i hate it for the people of that continent.




    Africa is quite the quandary for me, what kind of Africa do Africans want to see? What kind of Africa does the world want to see? Do we want to see the future or do we want to see our past? Do we want to move forward or return to past greatness? Will there be more advanced cities or more rural areas and giant preserves of their amazing flora and fauna?


    I think Boris is a bit of a bull in a china shop, he's seemingly a funnier British version of Joe Biden just constantly suffering from having his foot firmly placed in his mouth.
