1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Instead of “breaking the union” as the saintly EV (the Rees-Mogg of the forum, in my head anyway) puts it, I rather prefer “freeing Scotland from the oppressive yoke of English domination”.

    We all understand that EV is concerned for us poor Scottish citizens and only has our best interests at heart in his rants, but we’re all grown up now and can make our own minds up.

    Oh, God, Scotland, both perpetrator and beneficiary of the British Empire, and latter-day recipient of £billions of British taxpayer support, adopts the fashionable mantle of victimhood.

    It's not merely embarrassing, it's actually a bit cringeworthy.

    Now try thinning that garment rending sixth form modern studies essay in the style of Quentin Letts down to a single paragraph and to get any points- remember what the question actually was. Hint:
    “The eloquence, dignity, diplomacy and wisdom of Boris Johnson”.

    Shouldn't even require a paragraph. The bugger was only in Scotland for an hour.

    This article explains a lot about the psyche of the UK electorate. We actually like to be ruled by toff patriarchy.

    EV never misses an opportunity to deflect threads on to his favourite subject.

    Yes, I thought it would be a bit too much to ask...

    Are you having some kind of difficulty with the English language, Nick?

    No, just tired of answers that feel like they are coming from a politician. It feels like something's hiding within.

    Have we observed yet how World King ( abdicated) is ‘helping this new government every step of the way’? Will daddy be there with Mary Elizabeth through an economic shock the likes of which has not been seen in a generation, the industrial action, social strife andthe pound getting junked on the money markets?

    I see he also had to open his own car door when he arrived at Balmoral as the monarch’s representatives stood, arms at their sides and waited. Surely the great man deserves greater respect?

    You could be forgiven for not remembering that upward of sixty ministers and juniors resigned in a single day rather than carry on with him, it was all a coup.

    It's what happens when cutting to the chase would mean revealing genuine motivations. That much was clear when asked the simple "how low you would be prepared to allow things to go, before you decided it was a bad idea?" many moons ago. It's been obfuscation and deflection city ever since.

    He’s a fantasist- his own perceptions of himself are so utterly at odds with those held by others. He is though a very convincing con artist with a susceptible audience. Gets caught, lies about it then moves on. He’ll do it till the day he snuffs it.

    Sad thing is that he’s clearly very intelligent.

    That Charles Moore clown and another young woman journalist who worked with Johnston at the telegraph were on the today program the other day talking about his legacy and the young woman said Johnston had plagerised an article of hers she said she’d approached him for advice about an article she was writing so she met him for a drink to discuss things and then he published the article the next day in his own name.

    He’s a scumbag
