Not really news, speech was like Napoleon crowning himself

Slippery guy, schrodinger political views, playing a political game ending with him as PM



Muslim Women - ‘Letterboxes’
Black people - ‘Picaninnies’, ‘eating human flesh’
Colonialism - problem is ‘we are not in charge anymore’
LGBT - ‘tank topped bum boys’
Women -‘naturally fickle’

I thought his speech was really good, he certainly has charisma.

His character / factual accuracy lacks at times but if he can get a good team they can help cover that.

I particularly enjoyed the DUDE portion of the speech.

I mean, I am glad we have a leader who has a bit of charisma about him, but its just a shame it has to be someone who has so little substance behind it.

I would marginally prefer this to another manager-type leader, but I am disapointed as a nation we can't find a leader who can both lead with charisma and manage with substance. We have traded one extreme for the other in may and boris.

the positive for me is at least we will actually get some progress on brexit. if he keeps his promise and pushes us to leave deal or no deal.. then we will see a resolution to brexit one way or another pretty soon.. either through leaving with no deal, or a no-confidence motion/general election with a second referendum party winning. Either way, it will be nice to see the wheels moving again.

He pitches himself as a great man of charisma and action, but it's all as thin and watery as tissue paper on close inspection. He isn't Churchill. He isn't even Churchill's letter opener. He's something like Churchill's chauffeur's dog's attendant's carer.

I always knew this would happen. I can now happily leave TSR as I once said I will do (not that I will). Worth it to hear James O'Brien crying on LBC.

The real question is who is going to be in his cabinet?

I’m guessing

Sajid - chancellor
Truss- Business
Mogg- treasury secretary

And then maybe

Patel- Foreign Sec
Hancock - Remain in health
Gove- Home Secretary
Goldsmith- environment
Raab - Brexit
Jesus Christ that’s a whose who of a bunch of zealots and borderline criminals with them all being grossly unqualified. Except Gove and Truss perhaps.

I'm sure Boris won't let you down regarding JR-M's super cool government role as Minister for Crushing All Hope in the Treasury.

Your not alone. Now that BJ is PM we might as well leave the country to crash and burn. I had a nightmare that he became PM yesterday night, and now it's happened..... guess a lot of my nightmares are going to start coming true now. As I have said before, love the name

one miracle is that too much to ask? I knew was going to be anyway, after Trump anything was possible, however i wanted to be proven wrong.
I guess we can ALL find a new country.
Thanks, my name was just created on a whim
