    It's ok to like boris, i'm sure he could be a perfectly affable guy.
    But so is my window cleaner, but i wouldn't want him running the country.
    You want to shout at these people "Its not a reality programme, its reality ffs, this stuff is important!"

    The nearest thing to a Cameron/Osborne during Howard, or Blair/Brown during Smith, ready to stage a takeover, is perhaps Tugendhat/Ellwood (with maybe Mercer too). They look to have been building a big alternative powerbase through chairing the Foreign Affairs and Defence Select Committees respectively.

    Scara or someone will probably know more about the personalities/inner politics. I like/observe politics, but I'm not particularly into any of the main parties.

    He's not affable. He's literally a psychopath (maybe a sociopath, if you are being generous)

    I did say could be.
    I don't think he's a psychopath, i think he is a dimmer than normal product of his upbringing and environment promoted way above his capabilites.
    The fact that he is not only there but seemed popular, difficult to move and that the opposition cannot really cannot damage him highlights how sick our politics are.
    We can jump up and down shouting about nasty tories and loony lefties all we want, but at the end of the day we elected them.
    The old "you get the government you deserve" is getting truer every day.

    If he were a sociopath he'd be a far better PM.

    As it stands, he's intent on giving all of my money to those who haven't earned it.

    That's the smart middle ground.

    Keep making small enough moves that they're completely deniable but have your friends in the press write them up as you pushing the PM.

    Lol. Boris now cancelling official engagements due to a family member testing positive for covid.
    How very inconvenient for him.

    Not seen the whole statement so might have missed it, but don't see any mention of boris.
    Everyone else gets thanks and appreciation.

    To be fair, when your illegitimate children number in the dozens, the chances of this happening every single day are very high

    it's ok, Javid just cut isolation to 5 days, so he can't hide past the next PMQs

    I think the biggest surprise would be that anyone would be surprised that this clam would do this. And much more. He is who he has always been, and if people haven't seen that by now, that is on them.

    Poor language under the circumstances, i have a lot respect for the Queen, but that is the nail in the coffin imho, he will not be able to ride that one out.
    I suspect he knew that was coming and that's why he has went to ground, the scuzzball.


    Just noticed, from the torygraph.
    Oh dear.
