    Well, you've got to hand it to him. Boris has (very) big balls!
    We live in interesting times.
    I've been invited to be part of a panel debating current politicial events on BBC Radio Berks tomorrow at 8.45am ish. Tune in and hear what I have to say on the matter!

    They'll be sore after parliamentarians have given them a good kicking.

    The BBC have a whole radio station aimed at Berks?

    That really is niche!

    No, he is honestly just thick with an overwhelming dose of narcissism.

    Surely if that were true, he wouldn't be avoiding the chance to convince his critics in parliament of the merits of his plan, rather than running away and hiding?

    Becoming a bit of a defining trait amongst Conservative PM's in recent years.

    Certainly very true though on balance Corbyn is often nowhere to be seen.

    Maybe they are all playing sardines.

    Not a Boris fan but do you seriously think Parliament is packed with open minded people who are prepared to change their views if Boris talks to them? Parliament is split into Leave and Remain and there is nowt anyone can say that will change this.

    That balance is unbalanced. He's not PM, unlike TM, BJ, and DC are and were, and he is always out and about and being seen.

    I think you may have missed ajrowing's point: BoJo is running scared and MPs are calling him out on it.

    Then surely if he doesn't like the make up of parliament he calls a general election? After all it is reported that when Gordon Brown became Prime Minister a certain Boris Johnson was exceedingly rude about how he lacked a mandate.

    I have no intention of getting involved in a dispute defending the actions of BJ, I am interested in balanced discussion rather than hysteria. Corbyn has frequently been criticized for lack of action/appearances in the media over the last few months.

    There will still be time for a no confidence vote. That really will be make your mind up time.
    General election inevitable now.

    I don't think I have missed the point. Why would Johnson or indeed any other PM (of any political party) in his position try to "persuade" Parliament when everyone knows the situation is beyond that point. The trenches are deep and the barricades high.

    Certainly a GE is strong option. Can I be clear, I am not A Boris fan.
