@ poster "Auto correct fail, I tís libellous as you are calling him racist, those terms were deemed offensive but not racist, thereís a big difference."

Those terms were indeed divisive (letterboxes/bank robbers), inappropriate and offensive, especially for a prominent politician and former secretary of state to say. However it WAS racist to use racist slurs such as "piccaninnies with watermelon smiles" referring to black people, which he of course has said. He should have kept his mouth shut, but he can't help it because he does have racist tendencies and traits. Sure, he's no white supremacist KKK member (but one needn't go that far to be labelled a racist), but I think anyone could reasonably suggest he makes racially charged remarks (and therefore on the spectrum of a racist) without any chance of it being libelous (given these are facts), so I'm not remotely concerned but happy to repeat and directly to him given the chance.

To me it's simple. Johnson has in carefully used language, seemingly deliberately contrived to inflame racism in Britain whilst hiding behind some quasi libertine logic. The aim is all. He was aiming to stir up irrational suspicion and hatred of 'others' in a cynical attempt to win support. He has exploited and excited the already febrile atmosphere in this country. And meanwhile under its cover the Conservatives continue to demolish the state; the results of this are everywhere. Whilst the rich and powerful continue to live in the cocoon of their protected safe lives, all aspects of which including transport, education, health and social care they are able to buy.

Well if you believe them to be racist I suggest you file a crime report instead of banging on about it here, good luck.

@ Question, nothing cunning or devious (I announced it, after all!). It was initially a technical issue and couldn't reset my password so just set up a new one. But I kind of like my new alias now. Same old stoner values though

Boris may not be racist, but he's happy to say things that will get him support from racists.
His ambition is boundless, and he doesn't care what he has to do or say to become PM.

Noris how can that be so? Johnson seems to be a scheming amoral chancer with no thought out plan for the country only for himself. He is someone who is happy to swap sides, put race relations in jeopardy and is also someone who has a poor track record when actually wielding power. Corbyn on the other hand is a man of honour who has steadfastly stood by his beliefs and has never compromised himself in order to gain power. Have we really lost all sense of what makes a decent leader and a decent man in this corrupt world that has been created by a series of neoliberal self serving governments?

Clear what drugs are you on, Corbyn a man of honour that's the funnies thing I have heard for a long time. The man hates England and everything we stand for as soon as someone puts a bullet between his eyes the better

Corbyn doesn't hate England, otherwise he wouldn't live here , let alone be an MP for decades serving his constituency and country. His judgement is just not clouded by nationalism or warped patriotism because he isn't a child. He is actually able to form common-sense policies that help more people, rather than pandering to a few elites who need no help.

@Sid - Inciting murder? Class act. You may require therapy but you might not be able to see that, despite writing undeniably lunatic stuff on the internet such as that, as lack of empathy and self-reflection is a problem with many forms of mental health.
