Boris Johnson to answer charge of Misconduct in public office. IMO Farage should be there as well.

Brexit: Boris Johnson £350m claim case thrown out by judges
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-48554853
Sadly, it was always going to end this way, even if it got inside the courtroom. The case was brought not to remedy a wrongdoing, but as a vexatious matter, and thus could easily be swatted away.
It's a shame, I would have liked it to go further and for Boris to have actually had to respond in some way (I doubt he would ever have personally set foot inside the court).

Although it has brought some publicity to the £350m lie, the case has also now proven that politicians can knowingly and indisputably lie about a clearly disprovable fact and get away with it. Presumably actual personal and directly attributable harm or loss must be caused for there to be a legal case.

I would not call the courts a corrupt institution but I would call Johnson a (former) cocaine sniffing liar

If this chart doesn't cause alarm, it's possible you might be a Conservative Party member... :crazy:

Wow. That is truly scary. And the last is astounding - 39% would rather have Brexit even if it meant Corbyn as PM.

Another part of the findings show that a second referendum would consign the party to the electoral wilderness

It is terrifying that so many would knowingly damage their children's future in pursuit of something that they know would damage their children's future.
