Britain would not be Britain without its Jewish community. And we will stand with you and celebrate with you - at Chanukah and all year round. pic.twitter.com/S5ClRprCuL— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson) December 22, 2019
Jeremy Corbyn?!? That guy (mensch?) has got some chutzpah! :)ReplyDelete
Personally, I would be more inclined to call Boris a "mensch" and Steptoe a "mamzer", but there you go. You're certainly right about the chutzpah though!! I got very annoyed having to see those dead eyes in a Labour Party adverts, almost every time I watched a youtube video in the run up to the election. Happy Christmas MB and keep up the good work!Delete
Adrian Hilton puts it well: "I realise this won't be a popular RT, but just compare the organic lushness of Boris Johnson's historically-literate and spiritually fraternal Chanukah greeting with Jeremy Corbyn's rather desiccated, formulaic and prosaic video, and you'll understand why the medium is indeed the message."ReplyDelete
Indeed. Right there you have one of the reasons for the election result:Delete
Boris is a charismatic individual with star quality and delivers his address with passion, enthusiasm and historical depth.
Jezza, however, comes across as a sociology tutor at a minor polytechnic giving an end of term lecture to a class of bored and snoozing students who just want to get home for the holidays.
