THIS WEEK? Cam slams rest to be ‘tummy sticks’ champ

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

they be­lieve it, but be­cause say­ing it hap­pens to suit them po­lit­i­cally.

Even Boris John­son, who doesn’t seem to need any ex­tra pub­lic­ity, only de­cided which way he was go­ing to vote very late in the day – when he’d fig­ured out that cam­paign­ing to leave would help him be­come our next Prime Min­is­ter.

How­ever, cham­pion of cham­pi­ons in the ‘ tummy sticks’ stakes has to be our cur­rent Prime Min­is­ter.

Be­fore the ‘ tummy sticks’ started, he was say­ing if he didn’t get the deal he wanted on EU mi­grants be­ing able to claim ben­e­fits, he would vote to leave.

Now that he has seen there’s the pos­si­bil­ity of a very sat­is­fy­ing game of ‘tummy sticks’ in the off­ing, he’s stripped him­self naked and is rub­bing against his op­po­nents so fu­ri­ously it’s likely to start a fire.

He’s come out with all sorts of stuff he’s never said be­fore, like leav­ing the EU could trig­ger World War Three.

But if he re­ally be­lieved that, why would he have been okay about leav­ing just be­cause we have to pay ben­e­fits to any­one that lands on our shores?

The sad thing is that most peo­ple now seem to ac­cept that politi­cians will hap­pily dump what they be­lieve in, for the sake of a good game of ‘tummy sticks’.

They will say what­ever it takes to get their name in the me­dia, splash­ing their words across pages of newsprint and fur­ther­ing their own ca­reers and hunger for power.

Sorry if all of that has put you off your tea. It’s cer­tainly put me off mine.
