...when they spout stuff like this?



And if so, should we be concerned with their sanity?

A lot of sucking up/toadying going on.

But not from Max Hastings on Radio 4.

“I don’t understand why so many MPs who wouldn’t trust him with their wallet or their wife have fallen in behind him”.

Hastings used to be Johnsons boss when he was editor of the Telegraph.
He might have some dirt on Johnson.

johnson as PM will mean he's kept busy doing nothing by the Civil Service, whilst somebody competent does the work.

Expect to see a lot of boris on the news, opening factories, eating bacon sandwiches etc.

Occasionally he'll be allowed to meet somebody important, but only after the Cabinet Secretary has checked boris has his trousers on the right way round, and hasn't tied his shoelaces together.

It's hard to decide whether Yanks or Brits should be more depressed by that thought.

I’m sorry, it doesn’t work that way any more than it did with hapless Brown 10 years ago.

Civil Servants will be running around trying to interpret his and his cabinet’s mumblings and implement whatever apology of policies that emerge from the chimps tea party.

Generally the Civil Servants liked Brown, as they considered him their intellectual equal.

Dear Boris, got any jobs?

Love from

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

Yes - if anyone can beat Corbyn in a general election it's Johnson. Hunt would be destroyed.

Let's face it, even 12th man could beat corbyn. Its going to be like a grown man in a fist fight with a baby no matter who is running the show.
