Bye bye BoJo the clown

Postby Deebank » 12 Jan 2022, 14:46

How long has he got do you reckon? Days? Weeks? Hours? Or months maybe?

Keith must be loving it. For the first time in forever he's in a win/win situation. If Johnson is booted out, great! If he manages to hang on, even better!

There's not really anyone obvious to succeed him though - they are an unmitigated shower of cunts and I doubt any of them will be too keen the inherit the poisoned chalice.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Keith Richards

Anyway, I don't get out my "at last we can move forward" hat until the 1922 committee has actually finished singing.
The forces of Conservatism are very strong.

And it isn't about inheriting a poisoned chalice for people like Gove. He would just love to be PM, just to be able to say it. None of them have a long term vision of what they want the UK to look like. Even being rubbish at it will not harm his ability to pick up directorships and consultancies.

I think he's going nowhere unfortunately.

Liz Truss seems up for it... God help us!

Must have missed something. What's happened? Is it still about those parties in 2020??
On this side of the pond we don't hear that much about the UK these days, unless it involves the house of Saxe-Coburg. Mind you, considering the scandals and his conduct, Prince Andrew would make a great PM.

Brexit is his fault, as is the state of the NHS. Tory incompetence, sleaze and one rule for us and another for them were around long before DC. Johnson really does take the biscuit though. History will look back at a con-man who took the piss, allowed to get away with it by a party which always puts its own interests ahead of the country's and a compliant printed media stoking fears of something unspecified which would be caused by a Labour govt.

Just read a bit about it: he apologized, he groveled, he got some stick. Business as usual next week.
Much ado about nothing.

Although that Cameron fellow was a spoilt-rotten upper class egotistical Eton twat, he probably was your best PM this century so far. But yes, he laid the seeds for Brexit but not because he wanted to but because he overestimated his position. He bluffed with what he thought was a winnable hand.

Interesting.
There was a clearly hastily-thrown-together mini party political broadcast at 6.30pm.

Indeed. If there was anything worth having up for grabs, Gove and Raab would be all over this like a rash. But there is nothing to gained from the next year or two as PM. Just more covid. more Brexit fall out, and more inflation to explain. It is the proverbial dead cat. I would suspect bozo is safe for now. It isn't as if we have an opposition, unless you count Piers Corbyn and his fart brigade.

He did a bit more than lay the seeds. He called the unnecessary referendum as he thought he'd lose votes to UKIP in the following GE - and lost.
The effects for just about everyone* in the UK have ranged from mildly inconvenient to absolutely catastrophic.

I think the reason a few of the front runners to replace him have kept quiet up to now is they remember Heseltine pushing out Thatcher only to lose the leadership to John Major. They're waiting for someone else to make the first move.


* not counting the super rich and the disaster capitalists.

Prof, that's what I meant with 'laying the seeds'. All that Brexit shit wouldn't have happened if Cameron hadn't agreed to that referendum which he only did because he had no doubt he'd prevail. Enter Cummings, Nigel, Cambridge Analytical and before you knew it Boris was your uncle.

I promise I won't, but who is it? Mutti is a brand of tomato based products as far as I know.
