Oh you want reasons you approve, oh okay.
Yes I'd love some, just can't think of any, personal qualities I mean, not achievements.

Stuff like integrity in his private life, honesty, truth telling etc, are all conspicuous by their absence but I'd love you to cheer me up and point out something admirable I may have missed.

I think you are going to struggle, but here's hoping.

And yes I did vote for him, well, my local Tory MP anyway.

When did you stop beating your wife?

That's it then, is it? No redeemable personal qualities you can think of at all apart from being intelligent?

I hope you are not a defence barrister.

I've already dealt with my share of loaded questions today, try somebody else to play your game.
 
Has anyone managed to download the track and trace app for tomorrow? I can’t find it anywhere.

Have we managed to get up to 200,000 tests a day yet?
FFS, I've told you already.

We (royal we here, as in the UK) have the CAPACITY to do that level of testing.
What we lack is SAMPLES to be tested, as no one wants to be tested.

We can not report 200,000 tests done if we only have 45,000 samples to test.

Your descent into the depths of dementia is gathering pace old boy. Christmas is still some seven months away and I am not sure you’ll be asked to play the part of Santa again.
I did play the part of Santa some 20 years ago. You're easily misled.

So is that a new part of becoming Prime Minister now? It’s a popularity contest where your personal qualities are assessed? Did I miss that change? Or is it still just get selected as a candidate, stand at the election, get elected to Parliament and then, when the chance occurs, stand for leader of the party and thus become Prime Minister if your party is in power? Then hope you get re-elected with say an 80 seat majority at the next election?

So it seems it’s not a contest of personal qualities and the UK electorate dont give a toss about them. Or the alternative was just too terrible to consider.

So did I about 20 years ago and the scariest thing I have ever done. Surrounded by a bunch of Brownies all been Gee'd up by their group leader, whatever they are called in the brownies, Brown Owl or something. She was a good friend but knew to get me to agree would be to ask me in the pub on a Friday night about a month before the date! I should have known and been ready for it but after a few sherbets I was an easy target.

Five years I did it and the sight of those expectant 8-11 year old faces looking up at Santa haunt me every December!

I presume that you told them to "wait and see"

Ay up, A-Y. I enjoyed the gig but my 3 year old daughter declared she recognised me.

Of course you did. Of course I am. Whatever you say old boy.

Hopefully, agreeing with your harmlessly inane ramblings goes some way towards minimising any confusion and the concomitant angst that you may suffer as a result of disagreement.

Thoughtful and caring sort me you know.

I don't expect you to understand, me ol' flower. Have a nice evening.

So no achievements allowed, just subjective opinions about his 'personal qualities'?

That's an absolutely barking mad dense as depleted uranium line of argument.

Despite knowing that Boris would become Prime Minister? This person you despise and entirely mistrust? This person who in your view, has no redeemable qualities and really isn‘t fit to be PM?

You know, if I felt that strongly about the leader of a party and the need to keep him from the levers of power, I’d have abstained or voted otherwise rather than go whining about him on the internet after indirectly voting for him.

Some chose to hold their noses and vote to get Brexit out of its three and a half year complete stalemate. The 'red wall' areas of the Midlands and the North East certainly did.

I couldn't, but I can quite understand why others did. I think, though, they might well have cause to regret lending him their votes.
