wonder what made mcvey think a party of toff c***s would elect a piece of s*** scouser like her in the first place :lol:
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

I just can't see why Boris is getting so much support?  :lol: Totally incompetent, full of bad history, easy to target that during media/PMQ's and he will be in the public eye so much as PM that the instances of his buffoonery, racism and incompetence is going to be amplified.

I suppose he's best person to bring the Tories down really. He will have to crash and burn things before he's finally found out and the country can move on.

He achieved nothing as mayor of London and as foreign Secretary :lol: but he's funny on panel shows and speaks like a toff, so that's all that really matters.

Because he's just like you and me. We need more politicians like that.

Remember that time he popped into the Queen Vic? Bet he loves Love Island. Proper geezer he is.

He gets the support because he's by far the most popular with the public. Of course, in true Trump fashion, he's also the most unpopular with the public as well. They think he could take a GE with votes made up of hardline Leave voters and people who think he's funny on the telly. Worst thing is they're probably right.

I expect his family are fully embedded with the hierarchy of the Tory party and it's donors. My hope is that the favourite apparently has a history of losing these contests, but i'm not sure I can see it this time. I genuinely see him as our Trump, just an absolute garbage human being that courts publicity by saying stupid s***.

He's very like Trump. A TV personality with no genuine political beliefs beyond what he can whip an angry right wing base up with. Both massive narcissists whose only interest at all times is themselves.

Best description of Johnson I've read was that he's a man who waits to see which way the crowd is going before running in front of them and shouting "Follow me!"

Which makes sense, but only if he goes for a GE and a bigger majority as soon as he's in. That will be fascinating as it will be painful.

Be absolutely flabberghasted if anyone in Blue was considering having a GE until they're legally bound too unless Corbyn is caught shagging some kids or something.

There's a logic that says an immediate election might be his best shot where he can campaign on fantasies and lies again. Post October, they would probably face either the "betrayal/will of the people" side or the "no-deal has completely f***ed the country" side. They'll have to have an election at some point as their slender majority currently means getting anything done is extremely difficult, moreso if the likes of Grieve follow through with their promises not to support a Johnson government.

Fair logic. Guess it would depend whether they could convince the Brexit Party loons to fall in line and come up with some hard right / no deal pact. What a f***ing mess.

I'm not sure the Telegraph/that poll are impartial when it comes to Boris. One of their top fawners was just saying on Twitter it's fine for him to be racist as most Brits are more racist than him.

I'm with Wullie on this. We'll be back in unicorn land and keeps him occupied until reality awaits in Brussels. He need a majority and he needs one without the support of the DUP because NI will probably have to be sold down the river. He can work with the Brexit party to carve the country up and form an unholy alliance.

On twitter, Britain Elects had some scathing comment about the methodology skewing the data to exaggerate the change in voting stance.

All we can hope is that once our beloved death penalty is reinstated they opt for injection rather than hanging so it's not too painful once our time comes.

Aye I saw that. Been taking flack from all over the place but the Telegraph are onto a huge winner if Johnson gets the gig.

Doesnt Johnson write for the Telegraph? Sort of his audience voting there.
