Boris - The Prime Minister

First thoughts on PMBoris, will he make a difference?

My heart agrees but my head wonders whether he has fully recovered from his own episode of Covid, as he seems to have lost his touch lately.

As to the Telegraph, I gave up reading it months ago, as I am fed up with its anti-Boris editorial style and content.
I would have agreed with you a couple of weeks ago about him and his mojo, andI put that firmly down to his own battle with Covid. Were we not told at the time how each day in intensive care required so many days or even weeks of recovery?

But I thought that he was looking much better during his TV address the other evening so that is a good sign.

I am left wondering, however, where he sees the vital ground? Is it the EU or is it the pandemic? The former sees him on solid ground, over the last few weeks he has seized and maintained the initiative, despite everything including the kitchen sink being thrown at him by Projekt fear, who must by now realise they are drinking at the last chance saloon and even that is closing at 10.

On the face of it he has seemed less steadfast on Covid, and yet we have all witnessed first hand the grim determination of many to trip up the administration in some way or other. Neither has Covid truly revealed itself here or elsewhere. Even now the debate ranges from the thing just being a bad cold to it being the granny killer. Now the yoof who thus far have appeared untouçhed to have contracted it by the bucket load, and now, confined to halls of residence, are bleating that they only have enough bread and milk to last till monday. Poor dears.

But if we look back to the core message during the last election campaign I have to conclude that it is Brexit that he wants done and I get a strong sense that is what the people who caused him to enter No10 are looking for. The man (and woman and any other gender you care to mention) on the Clapham omnibus now know that Covid is a twat and that their own efforts rather than someone else's, are required to lessen its impact and therefore less of a vote winner or loser.

And if that has occurred to a daft lad from the mountains you can be sure that the grate strategic branes have done the same calculation. The next election will be fought on the ground as it presents itself in 18 months time, not things as they are now. By then, brexit will be done at least presentationally and we will be where we are with Covid. And unless Sir Kier has been working on a wonder cure in the meantime, the Covid response will not feature except in the agitprop of Projekt Boris Grrrr

The man has been put in a position that no other peace time PM has had to face. Ten months ago he was quite a happy chappie, with a massive majority and the publics backing on Brexit. Then Corona V comes along and turns the whole world inside out. My opinion is that Boris just wanted to carry on and let nature and our immune systems run their course. I would have agreed with that course of action. Unfortunately, I think our PM is being swayed by what he believes the media will portray him as, rather than being firm and going with his instincts. I think he may have been given some very bad advice.

Wow, the anti Boris brigade are in full swing today. Much of it based on Covid and the reaction to what has happened recently. All seems to be the fault of BoJo yet nobody seems to have pointed out that Nickerless Virgin (pbuh) and the numpty from Wales agreed and carried out exactly the same actions. How is this all BoJo's fault?

Brexit - with a possible dash - Never kiss a Tory politics

I have a daily torrent on my face ache of people moaning about Boris Covid strategy - How its stupid that children are going to school, how thick Boris is for believing Covid only appears after 10 PM.
How Stupid it is that you can only have 6 people at home - but meet 20 in the pub.

These same people are following those same rules though without complaint in France

All are rabid remainers and almost all fawned over Corbyn**.

XCovid is being used as another stalking horse for the lets overturn brexit brigade


**My suggestion that if they wanted to stop Brexit they should vote Lib Dem - was met with a Torrent of abuse and that voting them Tory Light scum is as bad as voting real Tory. Of course as soon as the results rolled in - It was clear we shouldnt have a Tory government because if you add all the Lib Dem votes then people overwhelmingly voted left wing.

Yep from being Tory light capitalists they became true socialist heroes overnight

Yep. David Lammy this morning on Andrew Marr was scathing of the Government’s ‘failure’ to deliver a functioning track and trace system, despite having “nine months to prepare”. He went on to state gravely that yesterday he had discussed the ‘dire situation’ in his Constituency and London as a whole, with the Mayor, Mr Kahn. He mentioned the significant increase in Covid infections, but offered no solutions and Marr never challenged him on why London may have to go into further lockdown restrictions - cos we’re not allowed to state the bleeding obvious are we? Instead, blame Boris!
Lammy truly is a twat.

Lammy is a bloody liar.

We have had a “World Beating” Test, Track and Trace system since it was started.

It's hilarious.
March 'we must lock down. Why aren't you locking down?'
April 'when will you release lockdown?' 'Sweden Sweden, Sweden'
June 'you released lockdown too early'
August 'schoolchildren must go back. Mental health mental health'
September 'schoolchildren shouldn't have gone back' 'students must go back, mental health '
Now 'students all sick. Let them home for Christmas '

FFS!!!!

Ah but Wets clearly stated, several pages back, that the Dom Nickerless was doing so much better, he has seen the headlines so it must be true :wink:

I don't know where this idea that Students would be locked into their Unis for Christmas came from but what a stupid idea! Well, a good idea, but stupidly put :).

Can anyone point me at the article suggesting students be detained over the Festive Season please. I need a good laugh.

Posted elsewhere yesterday, but to me no fcuker has delivered a functioning track and trace system, alles uber der platz......

Err...

1. They didn't.
2. He's in charge. That's why it's his fault

Duh.

That fact is probably not in question, it’s Bozo’s unfortunate practise of over promising and under delivering, when he boastingly claimed it would be “World Beating” and is not really that.
