Goofs

Boris Johnson remarks on the use of the real NHS logo on the side of the bus, and asks if they're allowed to use it. But what's shown isn't the real NHS logo - the real one is italic, whereas the one show is not - presumably since the film-makers weren't allowed to use the real one. See more »

User Reviews

Dominic Cummings is the "Russia" of Great Britain
9 January 2019 | by siriusly1986See all my reviews

If this isn't clear enough the narrative goes, as it was "Russia" or the Russians that made Trump win the 2016 election, so then it was Cummings and his shady analytical and online meddling that won the Leave EU vote in Britain. Forget about people going out of their way to vote for Trump and Brexit, it was outside forces, mind you, not their own citizens walking down the streets that day and head to the voting booth to decide for themselves what they want for their country.

To these cosmopolitans we crude simpletons just don't have enough sentience to go about and are merely victims of Kremlin hackers, spam email, the Like Button --- the black cat that crossed the road that forced us to walk a different direction! They'll blame anyone rather than understand you and me.
