God help the UK!

Whatever your political persuasion, defend your corner here. All we ask is that you voice YOUR opinion, rather than just post a link to a half-hour youtube video. Politics can get a bit lively, and if you prefer a less combative debate, please post in the Politics for Moderates section instead.

Let's pray for a couple of more resignations from the Tory party today - would leave him without a majority, Queen can't allow him to rule, so May would need to stay on.... hilarity from the country might send him away!

He should call an election immediately. If he gets a mandate from the country, then so be it. if he doesn't then it will likely be Corbyn & Labour.

I doubt he will call an election now. There's nothing to be gained from one.

I disagree, if he calls an election and gains a decent majority, which some polls predict. He will hen be under a lot less pressure and spike the guns of his enemies within.

Really, in all honesty who would want to take on the bag of shite that is Brexit?
I can't see anyone wanting to do so.... Let Boris take the flak because as it stands, all his supporters in the House should now all be devout Brexiteers so when the shit hits the fan on 31 October as he's promised and people realise it will take us another 10 years to get back to where this sorry mess all started, there's only Boris and his cronies to blame.

Roll on 31 October - then let's have a General Election...

Theresa May did just that, and look what happened to her.

Johnson is a proven liar, philanderer, fraud and charlaton and people actually admire him and his qualities.
There's no accounting for taste.

Unfortunately I can only agree with you though it does appear we are now scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Well done BoJo. A politician with a BACKBONE. Let us wait and see. I believe that he will sort out the UK and get it back to what it used to be and should be.
