Boris

Looks like Boris has thrown his hat in the ring and declared he will be in the running for the post of PM

Highly likely TM will be gone within a month.

Opinions please ?

Re: Boris

I agree that we need a change, but Boris wouldn't be my choice.

Re: Boris

We certainly need a change of PM but Boris is not the man. He has blotted his copybook in so many ways.

Having looked at the likely contenders i would go for Jeremy Hunt.

Re: Boris

Seems he is high up amongst the potential candidates.

No really my choice either but he usually has a smile on his face so unlikely we will get any comparison photos posted of him and hitler.

Smiley

Perhaps the time has come that comedians may be more likely to get elected than those who shout and get angry ?Huh

Re: Boris

@artmo 

yes I agree, he comes across as a stable character who talks sense, sadly that might not be enough to get him the job.

Hitler, more like Trump with that hair of his and as said in response to your question about him under another topic, if he cannot keep it in his trousers how the heck is he going to stay in office.

Bring back Michael 'choo choo' Portillo, he'd steam over the lot of 'em.

Re: Boris

I would like to see Ian Duncan Smith in. He was before his time when first elected as leader, I think now is his time.

Re: Boris

Way off with Ian 'beware the quiet man' Duncan Smith, he does not have a cat in hells chance. He's so far out of the frame he's in another snooker hall in another town.

Truth be told there is no natural successor and whoever does lead the party will be out on their ear at the next general election - so who other than some half baked second choice chancer would even want the job?

Step forward Boris the buffoon Johnson!

Re: Boris

In no way is this Boris Godunov.Funny Forget his sexual exploits. Look at his term at the F.O. where he seemed less than with it. O.K. he was Mayor of London following Ken Livingstone!Roll_eyes Yet what were his achievements there really, other than the Boris Bikes, and the new Routemaster, which doesn't seem to feature beyond London, and has numerous critics, and no more being ordered. It turns out the design studio's only other contact with TfL was for a telephone kiosk  Apparently that design studio was good at networking,so got the job despite inexperience.

Boris for  bluster, b**ls**t, bedding, and cronyism. No thanks.

And what an unattractive shower the rest are!

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Boris

I suspect the Conservatives will be out of favour for a while, so it doesn't really matter who leads them.

Re: Boris

I recall a time when they said and when many felt, that Labour would never ever get back into power - and look what happend, but that in my view was 'only' a reaction against Thatcherism.  

I regard myself and always have done as a democratic socialist, but one leaning increasingly to the right as I age but that's the world I now inhabit I guess besides which, the British people are in my view more inclined to vote in that direction than not.

What should have all learned is that true democracy only exists at the local level, and those that vote for a main stream party rather than say an Independant, do so out of loyalty and not because they think one is any better or worse than the other. 

Can anyone see the difference, really? I can't.

Re: Boris

Gove is just a creep, well he gives me the creeps anyway.

Populism is on a roll in the politcal world so my money would be on Boris the bufoon sad to say. Apart from the obvious, is there anybody up to giving this country of ours a kick in the pants? None that I can see.
