    Boris getting rattled as he always does when challenged.

    Boris could never be compared with Hitler or Napoleon as the latter two had a grasp of detail, did not waste time on vanity projects, and were faithful to their respective wives/fiancees (allegedly).

    When the Remain side talk about the risks of leaving the EU, they are "scaremongering" for "Project Fear"

    When the Leave side talk about immigration, terrorism, and the Fourth Reich, they are not, apparently

    It makes sense to some people
    Makes sense to people with little sense :yes:

    Wait what? I thought the EU was committing white genocide? How can their aims be similar to Hitler's? I don't understand...

    Boris - an opportunist who thrives on the force of his personality and is seeking nothing but absolute power.

    Does this remind you of any historical figures?

    Boris a Prime Minister would be the worst Tory PM probably since Victorian times. The two worst before him in my view were Neville Chamberlain and Anthony Eden. Even so, Chamberlain was a man who had honourable motives when he was duped by Hitler, and Eden had been a fairly successful government minister before his term as PM and the disaster of Suez.

    Hitler did not waste time/resources on vanity projects? You may need to look up his strong belief in 'miracle weapons.'

    Hitler had an ideology he passionate believed in.

    I don't think Boris really believes in much other than furthering himself.

    Eden was classy:

    Yes, they need to know Hitler was anti-white.
