    So your happy with Boris and his Islamaphobia are you ?
    Or maybe his homophobia is a more palatable trait ?

    I think I know what he's going to say and I don't think it's going to make him look half as good as he thinks it will.

    Thing is, if he wins, he'll be on such a roll that he'll slip up a lot sooner and more publicly than he would if he lost. He'll have further to fall, too.

    Your assumptions about me are very interesting. Also, you give a reason as to the Guardian’s stance by the use of the word maybe. I assumed, it would appear incorrectly by your response, that you had read the Guardian’s endorsement.

    I think we are caught in such a bizzare situation that you can just make something up and as long as it fits their agenda it doesn't matter !
    The people behind the referendum where qouted as saying don't give out facts people aren't interested in them !
    It was easier to peddle lies about Turkey and Albania being admitted to the EU .
    The whole leave campaign was built on playing on people's fears .
    It was project fear forced upon the public then turned around and used as their slogan !

    Maybe indicates uncertainty of the reason, not uncertainty of whether I read what the Guardian have said. I read what they said in 2017, at the time no less and it rang pretty true. I haven't seen a 2019 version, but if I'm honest, I haven't looked. Nothing in my RSS feed. In any case, I know they back Labour, they're not owned by a multi-billionaire Conservative well wisher, I'd be very surprised if they backed Johnson.

    I didn't assume anything about you, by the way, you're providing evidence through what you write, which is what I'm basing what I say on.

    Maybe you confuse somebody criticising a regime rather than a religion ?

    As I said earlier, I find it quite interesting they can be so laid back in quoting bullshit like Turkey wanting to join the EU, or the Lisbon Treaty, or a flood of illegal immigrants taking over, but apparently quoting economic experts predicting economic uncertainty is "Project Fear" or "scaremongering".

    I often wonder what the scenario would be if all of Europe spoke English or the EU headquarters where based in London !
    Eurosceptics seem to spin it as Us v Them .
    Brussels being the enemy ?
    Pushing the narrative into people that they undermine our values
    I generally find that people are the same whatever ..

    No need to guess though
    Tax decisions are made by Govt and we choose them
    It’s up to us, collectively, to decide which party is more likely to ensure that doesn’t happen (assuming you don’t want it to)

    No one likes politicians

    just read the manifestos and decide which one would help you and your family the most if they were fully implemented , then vote for them.

    Why are you voting Conservative?
    Not saying you’re wrong, I’m only asking as Labour would tax Amazon much more.
