Boris - The Prime Minister

First thoughts on PMBoris, will he make a difference?


  • Total voters
    666
The pointless comparison with New Zealand, with a population size less than half of London, nearly 90% of the population living in one of 4 small cities and a population density comparable with one of the quieter country's is indicative of the Independent's desire to paint a particular picture.
Pretty close to scotland though.

And yet you still make wild predictions which are as credible as those from BL....
Really, what are those wild predictions ? I have doubts you even read them. But lets revise them just for you:-

1. The Economy won't recover in 2021.
2. The UK Economy, will not likely return to 2019 levels, until Q3 of 2021, or even Q4 2022.
3. Boris/Tory political recovery won't even start until the Autumn of 2022.

In Summary:-
The tory brand is anemic, because the general public are too busy surviving covid for the deeper emotional to turn up in polling. Once things return to some normality the blame game will start and you and others are kidding yourself that Boris has handled covid all that well, as he lurches from one extreme to the other.

In your ever so humble opinion :)

Indeed, the 20/20 hindsight will be employed by all sorts of "informed" commentators to prove how they would have done things better! Any good parts will be very conveniently forgotten, not mentioned at all or just shoved aside as irrelevant!

There are many tossers around just now, but the real ones will emerge during the hindsight period.

And my hypothesis is that a successful vaccination effort , post brexit life not being the predicted apocalypse, a whole raft of trade deals, businesses that have got their sh1t together during Covid matched by sluggish economic recovery elsewhere can actually be played much better than your hypothesis of anaemia.

And did I note there you dismissing any polling? The same polling that you used initially to support your hand wringing?

Is that what is called a U turn?
