The Panel Is Political
« on: 20 August, 2018, 11:57:50 am »
Well, someone picked the right writer for this.  Image Comics in November putting out "24 Panels" in aid of Greenfell. 
Including a contribution from Alan Moore taking a swipe at Boris.

Melinda Gebbie doesn't arrive until paragraph four, so I got quite excited thinking Moore had picked up the crayons again and drawn Boris himself.  Wasn't aware of the 'get stuffed' incident; that video should represent the end of Johnson's leadership ambitions.

Cheers, Tjm.

Surely you mean a 15% boost to his chances?  The more boorish, nasty and incompetent a candidate (or campaign) appears, the better his (or its) chances.  We've all had enough of sensitivity, experts who know things and common human decency, right chums?

I agree about the Gebbie thing, I was looking at that Boris and thinking: blimey, for a half-blind dope-addled shambling mound he hasn't half improved since his Maxwell days.

Zac Goldsmith's anti-Muslim mayoral campaign spectacularly backfired and resulted in the election of human plank Sadiq Khan, so there's clearly some other kind of alchemy at work to make Bojo bulletproof.  I personally suspect some sort of genetic-level deference to inbred fops afflicts a large enough percentage of the British populace that the Clown At Midnight can leverage it into political respectability he's never earned nor deserved.

More likely it's just because they thought he was funny on Have I Got News For You. That seems to be how it works these days.

You'd think that, but sadly his schtick seems to be charming a lot of people.

Fair play to Alan Moore.  This reminds me of his very old stuff.  I've been listening to PWEI a lot lately and they're dead right about his knowing the score.
