    I seem to remember North Korea building nuclear bombs and testing ICBM,s. Now who dealt with that? Was it the UN or the EU or Russia or China, 'NO' it was Trump along with South Korea and Japan. Yes, leaders like that.
    If you are negotiating a deal you have to look across the table and see your opponents, if you do not then you get a carp deal.

    Too much generalisation. There's a lot of hard working decent people there too.

    Doesn't Boris belong to it?

    Yes, he has his clown moments but he is or says he is a Brexiter. It shows just how poor the pool of potential leaders is when Boris is so far ahead of the rest. Labour is in an even worse situation in my view.
    Conservatives have poor leadership candidates to draw from but Labour have beyond a joke leadership pool.

    I have to disagree in that Labour have an obvious future Prime Minister in Sir Keir Starmer. Other possibilities are Shadow Environment Secretary Sue Hayman, and someone like David Miliband may return to Westminster to become a candidate. Lurking about are several other decent, capable and credible potential candidates. First though, someone has to challenge for the leadership and secure the backing of Labour members.

    Do not rate Starmer but do rate David Milliband if or when he returns. Other than that I lose interest in Labour.

    She probably read that he's a wine man, never drinking wine that costs less than 180 quid a bottle.

    You could very well be right.

    I prefer Boris to any of the alternatives including Labour. Best scenario would be a quick out of the EU failing that a GE and the Brexit party upsetting the apple cart.

    Choosing between BoJo and JH is like choosing between diphtheria and smallpox.

    I see that David Blunkett is warning today that such a result could see a Tory-Brexit Party alliance created for to ensure that Johnson and Farage Brexit plans get through parliament. Blunkett says "The arithmetic is simple – if the Brexit and Conservative parties stand together, no other single party stands a chance of getting anywhere near forming a Government."

    Oh god. Don't hand them ideas on a plate, Blunkett.
