Boris Johnson has been ordered to appear in court over claims he lied by saying the UK gave the EU £350m a week.
High Court just threw it out for being politically motivated and vexatious.

Could you imagine making politicians tell the truth and how terrible that would be....There again the weapons of mass destruction might have come up.

The guy who brought it was apparently interviewed and having raised £300k by remainers wanting to go after Boris he has overspent and is in debt.

I'm not sure if there is anything that motivates him other than greed and desire for power.

Even Jo Maugham is saying this was a stupid vanity case that should never have been crowdfunded.

Big difference between being politically motivated and vexatious motivated and misusing our court system for that purpose.

I would suggest that if this guy is really trying to prosecute MPs for misconduct in public office he should start by bringing a private prosecution against Tony Blair for leading us into a war that lost hundreds of thousands of lives.

However this probably does not sit within the best personal interest of Mr Ball hence using other people’s money to support his personal views and helping him achieve his 15 minutes of fame.

The guy is right though, BJ did actually outright lie - The details of the case do demonstrate that he knew the figure of 350m a week was a lie and he supported it anyhow.

I'm aware that politicians are about as honest as a junky two hours into withdrawal and that they have a curious relationship with direct answers or telling the whole truth

But they should be accountable, and held to task and its becoming very apparent that the 4th estate isn't really fulfilling this role - so maybe the people via the judiciary need to.

He’s also being disingenuous at best about holding on to the £39billion. So Boris - if we don’t pay what we owe how are we going to enter into trade talks?

I'm all for UK staying in the EU as all of this is a joke but the UK have to have something to bargain with other than Mays begging and Pleeeeeeeeeeeeese give me a deal bargaining which got her no-where especially with the EU knowing the UK's hand with the no deal.

Other than that it will be nope that's the deal welcome the backstop.

Yep it might be bollocks but they do need that dosh.

Except the £39bn is a debt, not a future payment

Depends which way you look on it, remainers will say its a debt and Brexiteers will say its a bargaining tool for something they want...Both sides do not want want what the other wants so it's a continuous game of going round in circles.

Such is Brexit.
