He's got failings without a doubt, largely caused by something that was beyond anyone's comprehension six months ago, but he's the best available at the moment.What amuses me in a tragi-comic sort of way is that a smattering of people on this site will have been exposed to some elevated and battle-hardened views of Leadership. Things like:
In addition, values and behaviours tend to get flagged:
All of the above – in varying form – are basically tattooed inside the eyelids of YOs, for example.

And what has that to do with the price of fish at the market?I think you’ll find Boris and his cronies are no friends of the Forces, Cameron set some of the rot in however its been carried on.
May was useless like Major, Blair was a tosser of the highest order not unlike Brown and Boris talks the talk but yet to walk... you get my drift.
Full of promises and surrounded by yes men. Police stations and Fire stations closed under his watch when he was mayor.
strike one for the UK then. Mind I am just reading about Piers when he was working as the Editah and it is clear that he has the mentality of a bear trap. Somehow I prefer that to the mind controlled freaks on the Beeb or C4When it comes to Piers Morgan, it’s not a matter of permission, just one of taste.

It is? Which Speaker should it be?point of order- that's the wrong speaker
Good to see The Speaker slapping down BJ and reminding him to stop playing up to his mates.
