    Opening a thread to monitor how bad this man will be for Britain....
    1 Starting with the fact he’s a Tory is enough
    2 has not got a mandate from the British people
    3 responsible for continued detention of Mrs Zachari-Ratcliffe
    4 is going to implement no deal with will be a disaster for this country
    5 supports a racist and dangerous occupant in the White House.

    Other then that I wish him well....:(

    It's not enough.
    He's also white, male, straight, old, heterosexual, christian, abled.
    Totally unsuitable.

    While what you say may be correct, there are several other reasons why the Johnson will be (should that be "is"?) bad for the country. Serial lying should have been enough to bar him from political office forever. If you think that not enough, then wasting taxpayers money on vanity projects in London that were a ridiiclous waste. But you are also just inviting backlash of the knee-jerk kind from the right-wingers, the genuine ones and the vitriol dripping planted trolls.

    My god, the power of this man... his mere presence is going to finish off a religion of over a billion believers spread out across the planet which has existed for two thousand years.

    And we have him as PM! What a great time to be alive /s

    Assuming your last sentence is not sarcastic (who can tell?), can you enlighten us as to the exact benefits we will all receive from having the Johnson as PM?

    Whilst I agree with some of what you say - can you explain pt 5 further? Wouldn't one argue that he is merely looking to keep links with a powerful nation like America rather than supporting Trump..

    • I can handle right wing nutters and their allies don’t worry! Thank you anyway!

    Nothing wrong with being PRO USA but everything wrong with supporting everything Trump says and does.

    Agree. Your point 5 implies that BJ supports Trump in being racist and dangerous. Can you expand on what you mean here?

    Threatening war with Iran and his attitude to the 4 Congreswomen have been in the news!

    No, that is not enough. There are good and bad people in all parties (yes, there are even some bad ones in your beloved Labour).

    Agreed. He should call a General Election to check the level of support he has. As May should have done (well, did within a year I suppose) and Brown should have done.

    Agreed. I’m not particularly au fait with this case, but he certainly has not helped her cause.

    That is the future, we cannot tell at the moment whether (1) he will implement no deal or (2) it will be a disaster.
    I suspect that no deal will be avoided, but even if it does go to that the result won’t be as damaging as a lot of people say (and in any more negotiations the possibility of no deal has to be on the table).

    Agreed. How the US got to a point where Trump or Clinton was the best choice for president I will never know!

    given that there is clearly nothing wrong with being any of those things, I assume your post is in support of BJ?

    I don't think he'll last long. I think he is the best hope we have for a cancel Brexit government to get into power

    I don't actually think he could be much worse than the failed Home Secretary and failed Prime Minister he's supplanted, or for that matter the bullsh**ter in chief who went before her. I do wish that Britons could find a spine, stop falling for the propaganda, and vote in someone who believes in making the country a better place by enacting policies designed to help the many, rather than the few. It's been 40 years now since Reaganomics arrived on these shores. It's time now.

    He should keep JC out of number 10, is that not enough for you?

    Agree - but how did BJ support that ?
