    ...Boris becomes PM...


    :afraid:

    I doubt he gives a rats ass about the EU. It's purely about calculating which side of the referendum is best for his career.

    Hopefully Tory MPs see that it is just leadership plotting and elect someone else.

    Regardless of how naked power seeking it looks to the "informed" the guy is good at the whole being proud of being British thing. He would be an asset to the leave campaign tbo.

    Yes, he would help the Brexit cause. I just hope he doesn't become PM.

    The nationalistic tripe trotted out by both sides, especially the out side is so horribly cringey.

    I vaguely agree with Cameron, as much as it pains me to say it and will unenthusiastically vote to stay in.

    Agreed, the entire out campaign seems to be frothing at the mouth from people who think we're still the British Empire.

    Possibly, but I don't know. If you read the comments on any news site you'll see a huge amount of vocal out supporters, and the polls on all the *****y local tabloids always show out supports winning.

    But I think news comment sections and tabloid polls attract a 'certain type' of people. If you look at proper polls it's much, much closer. So we can only hope that common sense prevails.

    That said, I think Cameron being such a bumbling moron over negotiating a deal probably lost some support for the in vote. He's done more harm than good, and rattled the cages of the nationalists even more.

    I hate the fact that UKIP try to cover up their shortcomings by wrapping up their policies in a Union Jack. I was sickened seeing UKIP rosettes adorning war memorials at our local cenotaph.

    People on both sides of the argument want the best for the country and I respect only those on either side that acknowledge this fact l.

    I think that we'll vote to stay. A lot of undecided voters will, at the end of the day, vote for the status quo (or, at least, vote to avoid being on the same side as toxic figures like Nigel Farage). Of course, there's a good four months left so it could still swing either way.

    The EU is essentially the fourth Reich, it was what the Nazis wanted and failed to achieve, so I can understand your sickness at the sight of rosettes adorning war memorials...

    I think you're just trying to conspiracise his opinion...if we wanted to stay, you'd be saying that it would be for the purpose of getting on the PM's good side and therefore being his pick for his successor (etc)

    It became much more likely today.

    Obviously there was a political calculation behind this, but Boris has long complained about the EU anyway. If you're on the fence to start with, there's nothing wrong with letting politics tip you one way or the other. It's not as though he performed an about turn.

    Boris might not change the outcome but he'll certainly change the campaign.

    I'm pleased that the Out's have a heavyweight on side. It'll at least make the debate and campaign a bit more even.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
