    Some 'ordinary people' thought Tommy Robinson spoke for them. Even more 'ordinary people' think that Jeremy Corbyn speaks for them. What exactly are you asking?

    Because he understands the real life struggles of this world. The amount of times I've had to wait because my valet can't fix my cufflinks is honestly unbearable.

    Because a really significant portion of poor people think that they're millionaires in waiting and as such, line up to vote for tax cuts for multi-nationals.

    Quite right. The scions of Eton cannot and should not be subjected to the humiliating public ordeal of 'questions'.

    To you, that image screams class, authority and w/e. To a lot of us it screams out of touch mama's boy.

    Some truthiness there. Also though I just think a lot of people in England are still very deferential to what they perceive as upper class - that accent, the perfect suits, immaculate manners, etc. Basically you can be in charge of anything and get away with anything (as a man) if you adopt a foppish Eton accent, use Savile Row and speak in an amiable Queenly drawl.

    So smart that when asked, he cannot for the life of him think how to deliver the Brexit that he has constantly demanded for several decades. Hmmm. You'd think he'd have had time to think about it.

    And, in a very British way, you can do the exact opposite and achieve the same result, so long as the accent is still there. Grow your hair into a blonde mop, refuse to get dressed properly, put on four stone, shuffle around like a drunk who's just rolled out of bed and offend as many people as humanely possible. (to be fair, this could be me...)

    I think JRM considers implementation beneath him. Implementation, in terms of detail, is what minions do. Or 'The Executive'. JRM's role is to wave his hand and see to it that 'it is done'.

    I'll add Nigel Farage into this mix as well.

    I can't say I have too much time for 'manners' myself, they're a world apart for things like decency and strength of character.

    Boris Johnson is seen to be a man of manners but in reality he's a philandering, lying little toe-rag with the background of nasty little thug, not a statesman.

    You're right about the deference to the upper classes though. Very different up here in Scotland though.
