That is so confusing! If I ever figure out what it means, I'll have to use it!

I think, emphasis on the think, that it means that you really disagree with the other person...

I thought it was the other way round, makes my head hurt whenever I think about it for long though.

Oh dear, I think we need to contact Boris to clarify!
It made my head hurt thinking about it for a tiny amount of time!

:rofl: That is probably the single best insult I have ever heard. I think my favourite quote of his is 'These writhing whales of the road have swung their hefty rear ends around our corners for the last time.' :lol:
I'm guessing that was to do with the bendy buses?

I'm still trying to figure out what he means by this:

'I could not fail to disagree with you less.'
'I could not fail' means the same as 'I could' so that means 'I could disagree with you less' which means he disagrees with whomever he is replying to

Yeah, those were the 'writhing whales of the road'! I quite liked them...

So I was right!

Nah, all hail the timeless Routemaster and its worthy replacement, the Boris Bus.

Well public opinion is completely against it, I don't know if BBC has become a propaganda network because I don't watch it often enough.

George Galloway is the Russell Brand of politics- some people love him and then wonder later on why.

Bendy buses are much more fun than a bus with a conductor who doesn't take fares and windows upstairs that don't open.

Galloway is a turd as far I am concerned, no offence meant to turds though.

Well which politicians aren't? Most of them are self serving narcissists.

I agree! Though where I live we only had the normal buses. What sort of windows don't open! :rolleyes:

Agreed, I have noticed the new student newspaper at bradford has the feature "Galloway Watch" which appears to be just a "this is all the stupid things he's done this month" section.

I'm wondering whether this might be the only time that the whole House agrees on a political matter.

What power has he to threaten the BBC? If it came to a contest between keeping BBC (for all its faults) and him, I think I know which one the public would to like to keep. He just comes over as a bully boy who can't debate with people who have a different view to him.

Well he's wrong about tv licenses but I actually think Galloway makes good points on foreign policy in particular. More so than everyone's favourite speaker, Nigel Farage.
