The Sir David Attenborough is officially named today. The advisory public vote to call it Boaty McBoatface was ignored because it was deemed a stupid idea that would make the UK look foolish. Morning, @BorisJohnson.

I'm thinking of 'CuntyMcCuntface'. Now who could that be? :whistle:

Boris now 0/7 on votes won/lost + 1 decision overturned in court. Almost as successful as the current setup @ Bolton Wanderers FC. :roll:

Interesting that that last vote was the one for a recess over the period of the Conservative Party conference, usually a gimme. :)

Does it really matter? It's not like they'd win any votes if they didn't all fuck off to conference anyway.

Don't know if any of you guys listen to LBC but I sometimes have it on when driving. There is one guy in the mornings who winds me up by the name of Nick Ferrari. A brexshit supporter; now during Johnsons bid to become PM he was on the radio damning anyone media and public alike who dared talk about the police going to his house because of a bust up. He said it was a private affair and nobody had any right to know.

This morning the same twat was defending the media reporting on the two princess sometimes "not getting along" because we need to know if our future king is misleading the public.

THAT... is English media at it's best. (I say English because we tend to see more reasoned and sensible reporting from Scotland and N.Ireland concerning westminster)

I think French media is even more reasoned and sensible, as it doesn't report anything about Westminster. :snooty:

Nick Ferrari is an idiot. He tries to hide it behind a facade of ooze. These are facts.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
