First thoughts on PMBoris, will he make a difference?

...He tells me that in the spirit of inclusion the End of Ramadan was celebrated by a sugar party. The upshot was a surge in Covid cases about 100 which tells me that all the figures we have may not be correct. Because you don't contract covid in a day...
Perhaps the usual fasting in the day was followed by the usual wild partying, over indulgence and huge feasts at night, as seems to be the way of things in the bits of the world inhabited by followers of the prophet.

That would likely account for the infections logged during the fast and right after Eid, along with a few more festering in the shadows and due in the next week or two.

Not according to my champagne socialist sister and her millionaire husband. She's a senior NHS exec, and at a socially distanced family meet up this weekend she harangued me for being a Tory supporting Brexiteer who is personally responsible for 40,000 deaths thanks to voting Boris in (I haven't told her I'm now actually a member of the Conservative Party - saving that for Christmas :p). The funny thing was she couldn't find a single thing the government has done right over the course of the pandemic - the lockdown, the furlough package, following the science... all crap and designed to fcuk over "the poor".

As she was pissed and I was driving, I didn't engage, instead turning to speak with my Dad.
You'll probably go to the Christmas do in "blackface" too...

Why? I already self identify as a one legged mixed-ethnicity trans lesbian, blacking up would be gilding the lily.

I'd have told her that the plan was coming together and she was next.


.....or mebbe not....

Your sister would appear to be a clone of mine.
Has spent almost her entire working life attached to the teat of the public purse.
Complete lack of understanding of how the private sector works, and that it funds everything else.
I would be obliged if you can ping me the application forms for the Conservative party – would like to imitate your Christmas surprise!
 
You can’t be spouting heresy like that on here. He is a God and King of The World.
Not quite, but he was a much better option than Mr Corbyn - you have just got to look at the knee jerk reactions of the Mayor of London and Labour controlled councils across the country to the BLM demonstrations to appreciate how truly bad it would have been under a Labour Government.
However, I agree with you, the Tories (and PM BJ) need to massively up their game and fight back against all the negativity.
That said; who could have predicted what the following six months would bring, after the General Election back in December? It has been a wet dream scenario for the left and the establishment ‘bubble’.
 
Clearly Johnson needs to wake up and sort this out. If not who is best placed to do it?
A question: what would you have him do?

Last thing I think any of us want is a PM dabbling in operational matters. That would set an unhappy precedent. Think of Blair, Brown or May with that precedent.

I mean shots fired towards the chief of police is one option, but should we really be changing horse mid stream?

Did you read the article?
 
Tim Mongomerie reckons PMBJ isn't the same as he was before the election and he doesn't put it down to CV19.
Why I broke with Boris Johnson

Clearly Johnson needs to wake up and sort this out. If not who is best placed to do it?
I’ve just had a scrute, but I fail to see what the issue is? Since Covid has taken over from the Brexit Furore, nothing untoward has happened. Johnson has purely been elected on the Brexit issue and frankly the failure of any part of the system under Covid has been the structure that has been in place and Parliament has not really wanted to discuss that. Starmer has merely bleated on about leadership. Plaiin fact is that the running is down to PH whatever.
But let’s face it, if the NHS has over prioritised Covid at the expense of other treatments, that is an internal matter for PH and the NHS, and that is where the putrid matter of the excess deaths lies. Boris now depends on getting the best deal or WTO terms and the fact that the article appears in the NStatesman really says it all. No country in Europe has got it right and the fact that fifth largest economy has been hit should be no surprise. Right at this time a steady helm is required and keep the bows into the waves. But sod me, with our media who needs enemies.
 
Take their [Channel 4's] public funding away…

Good plan but...

But it does beg several questions about it's editorial stance and whether the financiers have a vested interest in annoying the viewers-I've not bothered for several weeks now because if it's not moithering about the Government it's covering very little in the UK
