Johnson will tell anyone who’ll listen that he’s an immigrant loving liberal Tory to distance himself from the touch paper he lit. The hard right aren’t listening anymore as they feel this cunt is their man and neither are the centre ground who are sure he isn’t. Johnson’s a captive in a castle of shit of his own making.

The Sun appear to be shocked that a man who campaigned against Brexit is still anti-Breixt:

THE SUN SAYS David Cameron’s book is nothing more than blame and anti-Brexit cliches — the man’s in denial

FOR three years he’s had nothing to do but think inside the £25,000 hut he bought when he walked out of No10 – but David Cameron hasn’t even tried to understand why people voted for Brexit.

His new book For The Record reads like Mills & Boon for Remainers, full of fantasies to drive fellow Europhiles wild. It’s one anti-Brexit cliche after another.

Talk of a second referendum to correct the first, which he once described as irreversible. The absurd, score-settling description of Michael Gove, one of the most talented men in his Government, as a “foam-flecked Faragist”.

Every Leave-backing politician is portrayed as a liar. David Cameron, who told us our decision was final and campaigned behind the blatant lies of Project Fear, for some reason is not.

Boris Johnson backed Brexit to “help his political career”. Dominic Cummings was part of a “cauldron of toxicity”.

Whatever Cameron’s been doing in that shed, it isn’t self-reflection.

Had he gone to the Brexit heartlands and spoken to Leavers, he’d have gained some genuine insight. His book could have been called Changing The Record. Instead it’s just more of the same.

The former PM had a golden opportunity to properly consider why he lost and trashed his career.

He does at least admit he failed to convince Britain. Why, then, blame everyone else?

The Sun also appear shocked that a political party who've made it abundantly clear that they wish to stop Brexit actually do want to stop Brexit:

Glib Dems

YOU won’t have heard of ex-Tory minister Sam Gyimah.

He came out as a Lib Dem at the party’s conference, accusing Boris of “veering towards populism and English nationalism”.

Gyimah, by contrast, has veered wildly away from his staunchly Conservative beliefs and embraced a party of anti-democratic extremists.

Three months ago he wanted to be Tory Prime Minister. Why would anyone who considers themselves a champion of democracy join a party now openly committed to ignoring it?

The Lib Dems have pledged to cancel Brexit. How pleased with themselves the sea of middle-aged, middle-class, artichoke-chompers looked in their snarky little T-shirts.

Has it not occurred to them that annulling the biggest democratic mandate in a country’s history is the hallmark of totalitarian dictators?

What is truly incredible is that they seem to believe life would revert to normality if they revoke Article 50. They fearmonger about No Deal, but never the far greater risks of No Brexit and the collapse of trust in democracy.

As for Gyimah, we wonder what contortions a low-tax, pro-austerity former minister will go through to fit in with sandal-wearing, Tory-hating lefties.

A warm welcome to him, though, from Jo Swinson’s rescue centre for confused politicians.

Not for a minute to defend Cameron, but we've gone to the "Brexit Heartlands" and asked leavers why. Oddly enough, not much insight to be gained. Thick as mince, hurting from austerity and unable to process anything more complex than "it's all down to the forrins", "we used to 'ave an Empire" or "Crazy PC EU laws!! You can't even play conkers any more".

So no, no thanks. I'm not really that badly hurting to hear why stupid people did stupid things.

I think they've gone mad.

I used to think of Murdoch as the ice to Dacre's fire in the influences they had on the Tories. Dacre was raging, genuinely, against a world he could not understand and feared left him behind, he was idealistic for a mostly imagined bygone era of what England was like. Murdoch, however, was rational, cynical, with no idealism whatsoever and purely and completely business.

He still is the final three but not getting his own way over this appears to have driven him into hysterical madness.

The Lib Dems have put forward a policy promise should they win a General Election. Were they to win said election, the people will have given them their consent to enact their stated policies. That the Sun see this as a "totalitarian dictatorship" shows they have taken complete leave of their senses.

It could be 2036 and 99.9& of people want to remain in or rejoin the EU and Rupe's only alive by being plugged into something and they'll still be screeching "betraying the will of the people".

It's as mad as I never thought they'd get.

The actions of them lately, along with the Mail with the RNLI story really seems to have ratcheted the hatred up a notch.

Still, the chill wind of Leveson, eh?

If any party still has plans to implement the second half of Leveson in its manifesto, it gets my vote. For some reason, I'm reminded of those old films where the hysterical woman is given a hearty slap to bring her to her senses. The press needs that, now.

If David Cameron's memoirs are so poor why did a company owned by Rupert Murdoch pay Cameron such a large advance for the book?
Dave's on the payroll, and will be useful when it's necessary to re-tell the story of the last 10 years.
How Marxist Corbyn forced me to call the referendum I never wanted.

Jesus, are they completely fucking tone death?

Rightly or wrongly Ben Stokes is currently being hero worshipped by a lot of people in this country. Pissing him off and forcing him to release this statement against them was not a smart move, at all. If I remember rightly The Sun were giving him a kicking during his assault case and demanded he be deselected from the international team, they then promptly forgave him and now this? They're having a PR mare.

The Mail have also run the story, although I'm not sure if it's on their paper version or just online.

Intentionally leaving out the fact Johnson asked to move the conference so belated it was literally impossible logistically.

THE SUN SAYS Boris Johnson’s treatment in Luxembourg was staggeringly rude and utterly nauseating

OUR Prime Minister’s treatment at the hands of Luxembourg’s smugly self-important leader was an outrage.

Why should Boris Johnson give a Press conference while being drowned out by hollering pro-EU yobs?

Instead of shifting the session inside, as decency and courtesy demanded, Xavier Bettel seized his moment to humiliate Boris and badmouth Britain.

It was staggeringly rude and unstatesmanlike. Would our PM have done the same outside No10 if the boot was on the other foot? No. It is unthinkable.

Such antics insult not just Boris and 17.4million Leave voters, but all of us. He is our PM, whether Remainers like it or not. Seeing them cheer Bettel was utterly nauseating.

Since 2016 our country has routinely been insulted by sneering EU leaders. But every single stunt hands Boris more votes and proves us right to leave.

Imagine if Remoaners somehow force us to remain trapped in this vipers’ nest.

Crying about the Lib Dems being antidemocratic while wanting to prevent a political party from being democratically elected. If people vote for the Lib Dems based on their Brexit policy that means they have a democratic mandate. It really is not that difficult to grasp.
The Lib dumbs

INSIDE the Lib Dem bubble they consider themselves brave, cunning pro-Remain insurgents rising in the polls. To everyone else they are a bigger joke now than ever.

They have made a huge mistake backing a straight cancellation of Brexit. Never before has a party opted to vandalise our democracy, as some aghast Lib Dems and Remainers are pointing out.

Leader Jo Swinson campaigned for a referendum. Now, having lost, she would simply annul it. That is not a credible position for a serious politician.

The Libs blundered in electing her. So did ex-Tory and Labour MPs joining her.

The party’s positions are incoherent. Treasury spokesman Ed Davey says Leave voters would “have a central place in a Lib Dem economy” — but only after Swinson has stripped them of their democratic rights.

The big eco announcement, a deterrent tax on flights, would exempt people flying “for family and things”. That’s not a considered policy. That’s wibble.

What a choice Swinson has given Remainers who aim to vote on Brexit lines: Corbyn’s anti-Semitic Marxists reducing our economy to rubble . . .

Or her own reckless extremism setting fire to our democracy.

Sneering at the idea that people would choose a company to use based on the company's ethics yet they're constantly screaming for people to boycott Amazon based on their tax payments:

Beeb's fantasy

WE’VE heard it Hall now.

BBC chief Tony Hall reckons the corporation will see off Amazon and Netflix because it is a more “ethical” choice.

Right . . . because millions pick a TV platform not because it has the best shows for less money but because of its (disputable) ­“values”. Best of luck!

And good luck, too, if you aim to charge a Netflix-style subscription AND the licence fee. The public won’t buy that.

End the TV tax, go subscription-only and they might, at a pinch, consider it.

Despicable, but par for the course.

I hope that the cricketing establishment stick an airgap between themselves and the Sun.
That means the likes of Boycott, Vaughn etc, not writing guest columns.

When Ben Stokes lifts Sports Personality of the Year, I hope his thanks to the media come with pointed exclusions.
