I don't think it can be a bad thing.
He is high profile and lots of people take notice of what he says.
As long as he doesn't do a last minute defection.

That's just it though, he tends to be flighty & flippant, added to that he tends to change direction with the wind.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

He's not daft, he's on a 'win/win'.
If we vote out he'll be the wise one who got it right, Cameron will resign and Boris will be favourite for new leader.
If we vote stay in Cameron finishes at the end of this Parliament anyway and when the EU Parliament screws us Boris can say' I told you so' and again he'll be favourite for new leader.
He's a politician, looking for what's best for him, not us.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

We have been at war with France,Germany, Portugal, Holland, Spain and probably many other now so called E. U. countries that I cannot bring to mind at the moment.

Now here is an idea to muse over; How about we apply to be the 51st state of the good old U.S.A. instead of trying to be the 1st state of the E.U.

Just another thought to ponder over, Donald Duck, (sorry Trump), as our next leader ? yea, i'm up for that, (well we can't really get much worse than what we already have), (can we ?)

Stay happy as always, Your's, Taddy.

You've obviously not had many dealings with our colonial cousins have you Tads? We need closer ties with the Spams like we do the rest of Europe, not the best of ideas mate.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

I am well for leaving the E.U. Taddy, but would prefer to stop in, rather than become the 51st state. I love the yanks, but their government is completely useless imho.

In the vernacular of your (1980's-1990's) Squaddie those of us that had dealings with them referred to them as "Spams". (self propelled American morons)

I know, hardly pc & all that guff, but that was the way of it & I'm pretty damn sure they had reciprocal epithets for us too.

We tried for that at the end of WWII, the Americans wisely chose to write off the debts for loan lease as a tax loss rather than take us on board, they may be loud but they ain't stupid.

Ok ... how about the eleventh Canadian province We'd have to have different voting qualifications for Brits tho': only those who can skate or field dress a moose would be allowed to vote.

I can skate, but I have never tried to field dress a moose.....You did say Moose and not mouse didn't you?

Well, there have to be some light moments to this serious subject.

Skating will do ... and I did say "moose" ... Teela Brown takes care of the mice. The other too lazy sluts don't do mousework.

And if you like skating, you can move freely to Northern Saskatchewan and skate 11 months of the year. A knowledge of and a fair degree of skill with firearms are definite plusses. Bears don't respond to "shoo"; and [deleted] off seems to make them angrier than normal ... and normal is bad enough.

And it's a long way from Calais, other frog places, the eyeties, and the krauts ... not to mention the jocks ... and the rest of the EU. And we don't have Eton, Oxbridge, and The City telling us what to do. Oh, and the bacon is decent; so you can enjoy your bacon butties.
