  1. Hunt has better style of dress overall which communicates detail – he sorted out the NHS and has a nice car I expect so I would prefer him. A man of the common people and their best interests! Boris can be scruffy and rude overall – may say or do something daft!

  2. Yes u can read the article and paragraph but how the hell u believe that the EU will agree? They crushed theresa may to the core until she quit. Well whoever replace her, goodluck

  3. Andrew Neil: do you know what's paragraph 5c?

    Boris Johnson: no

    Ladies and gentlemen the new UK PM Boris Johnson!

    Mr Johnson, Trump is here, he wants you to kiss his hand.. Ooopps I mean his arse if you want a trade deal

    Boris Johnson : sure! If be happy to!

  4. This is a circus.

    Was just watching Wimbledon outtakes from the players and their takes on the game in press conferences. It looks serous and professional. And then i turn to Boris Johnson. WTF is this!

  5. The most important general elections in the UK history are coming by the end of the year. The new government of Labour and Lib Dems will ensure the brexiteers will face charges of treason and the tory party will never get to govern this country ever again.

  6. I cannot abide interviewers who talk over interviewees. I think it's unprofessional and rude. All I could hear with Johnson and Hunt is Neil cutting in all the time.

  7. These people are SO incompetent. Just read the wiki page from Boris: the moral standing of a drunk. And the terrible thing is that comrade Corbyn is even worse.

  8. Get the details right !? BOJO you are a cork… Do you know whats in 5c BOJO… NO.
    Boris is going to be the worst prime minister the UK ever had. Never mind the kippers, we'll have plenty of mars bars to go round.

  9. Who's on first , What's on Second , I don't know who is on Third, Who's on First base , That's right, who is on first , I don't know who is on Third. Baseball it's confusing !!

  10. Boris or Hunt, a bit like two rabbits in a field with 1000 wolves surrounding them. Who ever wins will resign within 4 months (Fall Guys) allowing the country to have a general election further delaying the "so called leave" The EU will grant another extension therfore paving the way for another referendum or another election, So my guess we will never leave, the sooner people realise we have been sold down the river the better.

  11. I for one can only applaud Andrew Neil for b%st*rdising Boris Johnson. He actually gave him a a harder time than Jeremy Hunt he just didn't fold as easily but AN wasn't fooled one bit by Johnson's off on a tangent blagging. Best accidental BBC half-hour comedy have seen in ages!

  12. Why are these clips always so edited? Do the BBC not think people have the attention span for the actual interview or at least uninterrupted highlights? Or do they just want to pick and choose lines out of context so we cant think for ourselves

  13. BOROS AND HUNT WILL NOT STOP IMMIGRATION OR PUT A NUMBER DOWN NOW WE NO THAT THE BREXIT PARTY WILL HAVE OUR VOTE FOR THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IMMIGRATION IS NUMBER ONE ON THE LIST SORRY BOROS IT IS THE BREXIT PARTY FOR US [ WE REQ SOME NUMBERS ON PAPER TRUST HAS GONE ]

  14. Boris Johnson is a Roman Catholic (source: Wikipedia). One reason not to vote for him. The Catholic church stole 500 million of Nazi gold according to one report though the figures are higher. The Vatican was funded in 1945 with the gold of Jews taken by the Nazis. The gold went to Switzerland then to the Vatican.

  15. The upside of PM Boris leading the country off the cliff-edge is that finally the politically ignorant, deluded, flag-waving simpletons who support him and voted for Brexit will finally shut the fuck up.

  16. It makes no difference. Either will be simply a placeholder PM warming the seat up for Corbyn, who will take over once Labour stand on a remain manifesto at the coming election. There is a majority in the country for cancelling Brexit and skulking back into the EU.

  17. I don’t think that I’ve honestly ever seen a worse interviewer. He is basically just being a pompous ass and not giving either of them an opportunity to elaborate on any of their answers.

  18. What a choice the conservative membership has to make for the rest of the population.  Either  an entrepreneurial liar, or a philandering liar.  God help us all.

  19. Please do some real jpurnalism BBC. For those who care about the truth search "Brexit Party MP worked for Cambridge Analytica". Actual investigative journalism still exists and can be found on Channel 4.

  20. Was this filmed in a shed? The acoustics are awful, maybe don't give Gary so much money and spend some on this production. This is insulting and typical of a wasteful bbc I'm assuming. GRRRR

  21. Bbc are so far left now. Editing for propaganda. This putting people in to groups creates division. Its an old tribal behaviour, we must evolve. People need to learn to love each other and stop hating. This fuels the social justice warriors. We need more maturity from the bbc.

  22. still trying to make up my own mind about Boris and this interviewer is a complete punk and isn't letting him finish his answers. What a joke.

    Can't judge someone if they can't effectively respond and explain their stance.

    Honestly.
