    Think of how beloved he could have been as a physical comedian, rather than reviled as a despicable politician and malevolent incompetent journalist.

    Missed an opportunity to be a national treasure, rather than national embarrassment.

    It is done deliberately to convince people that “Boris is a laugh, isn’t he!” whilst he is anything but…

    I have to wonder if he nearly poked someone's eye out while struggling with the umbrella.

    He used to be an American citizen. He decided to be full on Brit 5 years ago.

    I wonder what you lot would be saying if Corbyn's mob had got in.. Bozo might be a bit flawed... But the alternatives, at the moment, give me very bad dreams.

    Mob? You mean an elected majority of Labour MPs in 2019, standing on a platform of a strategic defence review, a push for countrywide broadband, an option to vote for Remain following a review of the Brexit situation, a rebuilding of public services (handy, should - for example - a pandemic pop up), and ... Oh, you're a troll.

    Bye.

    Hardly a troll. I just don't think Corbyn has the competance to run the country. I used the word mob, not in the unruly crowd sense, but in his group of like minded socialists. Diane Abbott ???

    I’m with AndyG here. I have less than no time for Jeremy Corbyn and Diane “of course I send my children to Public Schools” Abbott but I never doubted that were Labour to win there were enough competent and experienced Labour MPs to fill a Cabinet and after a couple of false starts they would have taken over.

    With the Conservatives, after Creepy Cummings’ Night of the Long Knives, all that remained were incompetent Brexiters and that is what the Cabinet now comprises.

    In which case I will assume you think I am a troll too, so will leave you to it.

    Why would I think that?

    I mean that had I not had a LibDem candidate, who happens to be a friend, or a Green, to vote for, I would have voted Labour rather than vote for the fat lazy slob of a Cabinet Minister who replaced the excellent John Selwyn Gummer as our Tory MP (they don’t count Tory votes in Suffolk, they just weigh them) when he was kicked upstairs* as Lord Deben.

    * I think that was Nigel Lawson’s revenge for John S-G turning Mrs Thatcher into a genuine environment campaigner. She was a career chemist; she understood science.

    Bad moment, sorry. When you were agreeing with AndyG.

    As you know, can't vote in UK for a long time. Just dispair at the quality of politicians in general. They seem to tend to extremes, either of socialism or grabbing Tory. I liked Portillo's comment: Unless you are in cabinet, it is not worth it.
