    You’re just being silly. Nobody else has been selling the line to the public, other than Johnson, Mogg etc.. about an evil elite... whilst themselves being ...

    Footballers who own properties all around the world, employ servants and maids, nannies etc and have a convoy of elite cars, are themselves elite.

    They’ll just put a negative story about a black footballer who has done nothing wrong on the front page instead.

    But compared to Johnson and Mogg who were born into it and whose decisions effect the lives of millions... please you’re being a little silly.

    Not sure Bale has said vote for me as Charlie Austin is part of the evil elite.

    North-West London if you don't mind.

    As for intellectuaI, I'd say I was smarter than some I can think of.

    Jacob Rees-Mogg for example.

    Neither Boris nor Mogg had parents who were politicians. And, as I've already said and you ignored, Grandpa would have had the same power and also came from a well to do middle class family.

    Mogg is academically clever but probably not streetwise

    Cummings v Johnson

    I have no idea who is worse, but defending one against the other is like saying ‘yeah, this bloke’s a paedo, but the other one is a more aggressive paedo’. You end up endorsing paedophilia without thinking about it.

    For balance, I’d say the same about Corbyn v Watson (remember him? Yeah me neither), Sturgeon v Salmond or Ed Davey (took me five minutes to remember him) v the invisible man. Or anyone else where the cop out of moral relativism is used to excuse crap, corrupt, self serving behaviour.
