    Vote Boris in October

    Would anyone like to post odds on a non-May-led Conservative victory in the next General Election putting Boris into Number 10 at long last?

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Re: Vote Boris in October

    I'm not sure I want to bet on anything in politics just at present. It seems lots of young people got it together and voted Corbyn and I didn't see that coming. The UKIP vote didn't move en masse to the tories when it collapsed which seems to have been the tory bet, Conservatives have done better as you go north and in Scotland and worse in London and the SE and I absolutely didn't see that coming. UKIP now appears to be mostly a Welsh phenomenon, the SNP were unlikely to hold such a huge majority but have taken a pasting mostly from a Unionist (and conservative) Party. Here we've just lost Richmond Park after a recount or two but since we regained Kingston my local very Lib Dem wards are hopefully a launchpad for an advance rather than a last bastion.

    So Boris in no10? Looks a near certainty doesn't it. Like the not being stupid enough to leave the EU vote and the tories being returned with a large majority...I do think this is both a worrying and a hopeful development: Worrying because the country does seem very fractured with fault lines all over: Left/Right; old/young; leave/Remain; North/South. Hopeful because our political system needs shaking to its foundations and this may be it beginning to happen.

    It's going to get worse, too.

    Do you think brexit gives an opportunity to reintroduce the outlaw concept? Then we could hunt Farage with hounds legally.

    edit: Kensington is undergoing multiple recounts to find out if Labour have taken it. KENSINGTON!!!

    Re: Vote Boris in October

    Can the DUP really make a government with the tories? They can't make a government in NI...

    If they can they seem to be very hardcore brexiters. Not good. How they combine that with a soft Irish border is anyone's guess.

    Re: Vote Boris in October

    The phrase you need is "No Surrender", for which the speaker invariably adopts an intransigent tone and loud delivery. Iris Robinson springs to mind. Robinson's wife, Iris, had said that homosexuality was an abomination and that with help, gay people could be "turned around", that one. I keep wondering whether she was attempting a joke but sadly I doubt it. And now we have Mr Robinson's ex-deputy taking the reins of power in Westminster?

    Theresa May's most significant time in government was as Home Secretary. She was sarcastic in that office, overbearing, she gloated and she mocked, she was deeply divisive and incapable of even listening to common sense much less taking it on board.

    As Prime Minister she was totally out of her depth, defensive and incompetent, thank goodness we're rid of her.




    I am yet to talk to a Tory source today who believes she can stay for as long as she likes. She is being seen as a caretaker PM, here for continuity at a time of great volatility - strangely the sort of reasons cited when she was nominated for the leadership. That was of course, before Theresa May revealed herself to be a gambler too. A trait only revealed once she moved into Number 10 - a trait that might be her political undoing, even if she keeps the address for now.

    One must ask how these collection of incompetents got into politics to start with.................is politics the latest career option for all those who might have chosen Business Studies or such like.

    Re: Vote Boris in October

    Short answer: yes.

    Politics has always attracted its share of the unpleasant. But the power you have in politics is rather shaded nowadays by the power you get in in business at the top and you don't have to answer to an electorate. The really talented have been going into business and not politics for well, a long time now. A century in some places? Longer if you consider eg mediaeval Italy and its merchant princes.

    Do I get a point for Winston Churchill's father, and another for his slovenly oaf of a grandson?
