Last PM of the UK ?
Within the parliamentary term, Scotland would vote leave as boris would take a no-deal brexit and Scotland would overwhelmingly vote independence. End of UK

Well I suppose it's a bit like the remainers view on Brexit, keep voting until you get the result the politicians want ;)

And what was your view on Brexit? What were you actually voting for? You don't know, do you? Nobody does yet.

I think my views are well documented on this forum. What did the remainers vote for ? they don't know either, just to remain means nothing, the future of the EU is unknown.

And surely you cannot think that the future of the UK is written in stone? :evil: :evil:

I think that, at present, it is looking more than likely Boris will be PM. I suspect he won't get support from the EU for a radical enough change to the deal, within the timescales. He, therefore, has to extend the period - which will alienate his buddies in the ERG and right of the party, or go for a no-deal which will split parliament, in theory, get voted down, potentially a vote of no confidence and a disastrous start. IF he gets a no-deal through, there will be immediate unrest. Scotland will force a Referendum on the basis of staying in the EU. RoUK will face turmoil over immigration and trade issues. I suspect that a general election will ensue before Boris has done his 3 years and the UK political scene will never be the same again.

If voting leave meant all this and more - with Farage a major player in UK politics, insidious racism and a poorer country ...

And now it's being reported that Boris is "donating" some of his MPs who he knows will vote for him to vote for another would be PM who he has no fears over in order to keep them both in the "top two" for the final running.... More #ToryDirtyTricks eh!

It seems he's definitely wary of Rory who is coming across really well so far.

No-one asked me or any member of my family these questions.

Of course not, but my point still stands.


The remainers will always pillory Boris and Nigel, it's as if the remainer M.P.s are whiter than white.

Compared to those two, the remainers are transparent.

Gove on the debate AGAIN lying that his father lost his business;

Michael Gove's father denies his company was destroyed by EU policies
This article is more than 3 years old
Ernest Gove says he sold fish processing firm in Aberdeen voluntarily, contradicting son’s claims

I'm amazed you can still put a bet on Boris to win. Sky bet have the following odds

Boris Johnson
1/12
Jeremy Hunt
12/1
Michael Gove
16/1

Still better than bank interest rates.

Front pages of all today's papers are majoring on the blazing 10 minute late night row between Boris and partner, who apparently told Boris to "get off her" and to leave her flat. Police were called by a neighbour, but charges were not pressed.

With two failed marriages behind him and apparent tensions in his present relationship, he just does not seem the man for the job. His body language in the last TV debate was terrible and he drives around in a battered old car. He's a liar and a cheat. Hardly PM material - not that I ever thought he was. Why so many Conservative MPs and party members are still in favour of him is completely unfathomable. Yet he was 50% of the Laurel and Hardy double act which managed to convince 52% of the electorate that Brexit was a brilliant idea. That notion was unfathomable too...and has since proved a comedic, discredited, unworkable and costly fallacy.

Agree entirely with Devil's assessment of the participants, and scores, in the recent TV debate. Emily Maitless was weak and just not strong enough to stand up to four testosterone-fuelled politicians. But Rory Stewart stood head and shoulders above the rest, shame he was booted.

Don't agree that Rory stood head and shoulders above the rest, he was the only one not truly committed to Brexit, added to that he has obviously adopted the Corbyn dress code.

He was fully committed to Brexit, as he was starting where May left off. OK, no tie, so what? You don't judge a book by its cover (or perhaps you do!).

That at least indicates he has a brain and can think for himself, and was not taken in by self-serving twerps like Farage and Boris.

A plus point wouldn't you say 8-)

Knowing you Jackie, perhaps not :lol:

I liked the fact that Rory Stewart made it very clear there would be no tax cuts for anyone as it wasn't in the interest of keeping the country afloat. Cutting taxes meant cutting back on something else and that's not what he wanted to do.
Of course, all of those fat cats in the high end tax bracket didn't like hearing that so instead they've voted for those who will give them what they want - and everyone else can sod off.

How I judge people is down to me and nothing to do with you.

Lloyd

They are all self-serving twerps.

Jules

Stewart will, as with the others, say one thing and do another. Personally I believe that they all lie, time will tell.
