Lol.

He probably doesn't think any differently, even tho he said it 20+ yeasrs ago.;)

His policies suggest he hasn’t changed his mind,

but oh bless him he has a funny hair cut and says funny things, which seems enough to get votes these days

article might be old, but it is probably a better window into his soul (or lack of) than what he will say now

The justification of it gets me, dismissed as it’s old. 
 

the support for those populist figures, surely at some level they know that they know in the event of a fire they wouldn’t piss on them unless there was a vote in it

Do you think his opinion of working class people has changed that much? 

Maybe he has had some sort of epiphany? 

 

Do you still think in the same way you did 20 yrs ago? It’s a long time.

Fair point, No, not about all things my mind changes as you experience new things, as information comes in... but not sure my core values have shifted that much

Im sure, BoJo has changed his mind on somethings, he has on Brexit multiple times, hey if there is a vote in it he’ll change his mind.

 

But Im doubting BoJos core values have shifted that much, the article shows he didn’t care much for working class and he sneered at those worse of than himself or from different social classes. Do you think he’s changed their at his core? Really?

He’s a bullingdon club, upper class twit, who’s in it for himself he was 20 years ago and he is now

Core values persist, generally.

Arrogance and elitist attitudes are probably fairly ingrained...

His background would have reinforced it I imagine ( not that know or can bear the thought of finding out anthing about him).

Big Deal...so he's signed a bit of paper...but what exactly does it mean and will it change the HK situation? Methinks not. I guess he could try a  trade war....:nea:

Everyone knows the only way to get Trump to pay attention to anything is to massage his ego. Hong Kongans believe the US is the only country with enough power that can "stand up" to China. It would be no different if it were Obama, or Bush in charge.

Pretty sure the article gave a rundown on what it means.

Trump signs a lot of papers and being one of the most powerful gentlemen in the world it probably means a lot.

People in Hong Kong seem happy about it and it affects them so that’s a good thing.

That’s a presumption, Trump has acted and rightfully so. Bravo Mr Trump.

You could just click on the link I posted and read for yourself, but basically he’s standing up to China on behalf of the pro democracy protesters.

Complete bullshit...he'll do nothing....let's face it Kim Jong Un does far worse to his own people and he's one of Trump's best buddies.

Ohhh kaaay.

No-one else stands up to Kim besides Trump. 

What do you think Trump should do regarding Hong Kong?

Yeah.

It was a deflecting point that was posed to me anyway to take away from what he’s done with the Hong Kong situation and wasn’t really relevant, we weren’t talking about Nth Korea. 

Many nations have imposed sanctions against NK and Japan is pretty vocal against them admittedly. Without US backing though it would all fall flat and Trump is the voice of the US that Jong Un will listen to.
