The size of Johnson's majority over Hunt should give Tory remainer MPs something to think about as the Tory membership obviously favour a No Deal Brexit over more delay , those Tory MPs who wish to keep their jobs will have to consider that.


I wish some Labour MP's would take heed as well.

As things stand Labour would be annihilated in The North and Midlands if a General Election were to be held tomorrow.
Numerous constituencies voted to leave yet their MP's are backing Remain....much to the ire of the electorate.

The point is; we need a strong opposition more than ever now and it simply isn't going to happen as things stand at present.

A typical example of the casual disdain Johnson has for taxpayers and the electorate.

He will be genuinely incapable of understanding why the like of you and I would find something like that offensive or inappropriate.

All the way, with BJ.....

But what a revelation.......Boris is a YANK!!! Born in the USA.

Holy Smack right there.

So the Yanks Finally get their payback from that tea party and skirmish in the old days.........Well I never.

Its like "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" all over again, or even worse, that rubbish movie with Roseanne's husband in it.

Gods Speed England......from your buddies down under.

Warranted, we also need a very strong military if we are to become truly an independent nation again, that is if we are ever to survive on the world stage again and hold our own.

Thing's would be so different had Cameron never gained power but everyone was so sick of Brown and Blair I suppose they were just desperate for change.

We do need a strong Opposition to hold the Govt to account. Unfortunately, with Corbyn in charge with his Student Union politics and generally having all the leadership qualities of your average lemming, we simply don't have one.

As for BJ, I really have no clue as to what will happen on his watch but I suspect neither does he. Personally, can't stand him. I couldn't stand Hunt at the beginning but sort of warmed to him. Sort of.

I am expecting a gaffe-a-thon.

Good, looks like the UK scored a FireBrand.

Good.

Y'all needed some teeth after the dismal Brexit negotiations and pitiful handling of the tankers from Iran, among a few other things.

Boris could be the best thing ever for the UK.

The OP doesn't have the mental fortitude to understand or see potential results that may be gained, we've seen this through interactions with it and their ill percieved views that never resulted in fruitition.

If the OP is against it, it means it's a good thing 😌

I have never heard anyone describe BJ as a "FireBrand" and strongly suspect that I never will again!

HAHa more like a soggy fat lettuce, I can't wait for the first argument between him and Corbyn, despite winning debating championship's most of Boris arguments have no real substance while Corbyn is useless at getting his point's across and slow to pick up on his opponents mistakes so it's going to be like an episode of celebrity eggheads were the audience all know the answers but the celebrity's are not that clued up and the eggheads get all the really stupid question's that no one can answer.
You know someone is going to make a film about it some day, a really bad comedy one.

If this was any other country I'd be relishing the upcoming 'gaffe-a-thon', lol.....but it isn't, it's our country and I fear we are going to become even more of a laughing stock on the world stage than we are already due to the appalling ongoing Brexit saga.

I'm expecting a torrid time from our colonial cousins...but at least they haven't truly mastered the art of really biting and sarcastic taking the piss....yet.

I like Boris the person but not so sure about Boris the leader. He is highly intelligent but can be severely lacking in, shall we say, common sense at times. He also has the top trump (game not President!) ability of being able to go off half cocked - great on a panel show, not so great when said as leader of a P5 country.

Two asides though:

1. Europe - reports came out over the weekend that France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and a couple of others i cannot remember have already had informal talks with Boris (so prior to him actually being confirmed as PM) about possible changes that could be made to our deal because they are quite simply terrified of him going "No deal" - which they now finally believe is a serious and distinct possibility. And, for the record, these leaks came from Europe rather than Brexiteers. I do not want No deal as i am pro EU but this seriously strnegthens our hand in negotiations.

2. (To Angelchemuel also) I actually think there is a strong possibility of a very early election as Boris's team sees an election victory with a larger majority against a Corbyn Labour. The fear from Boris's team is that Labour replace Corbyn before a G.E. - which does potentially mean that time is of the essence (given plummeting Corbyn support and moves within the Labour Party against him).

What is this kindergarden bullying

They're public figures who by actions and words put themselves up for public ridicule , it isn't bullying but even if it was I wouldn't worry about bullies getting bullied , they're both big enough and ugly enough to look after themselves.

Actually he is only REALLY prime minister when he see's the queen and she accepts his oath of office and until that point she can refuse to accept him as her prime minister believe it or not, she will likely not do so though as he is one of the family after a fashion, a distant one via the Hanoverians.

Until then he is Ernie the fastest milkman in the west, thanks' for that benny hill comparison alldaylong, sadly he is not as talented as old Benny was.
