Boris - The Prime Minister

First thoughts on PMBoris, will he make a difference?

Boris has not impressed me, his govt has done far too many u-turns and is too wedded to non-practitioning medics/scientists using deeply flawed models rather than making command decisions based on the whole problem eg thousands dying from a lack of medical care, millions sat on their arse enjoying their free furlough money, huge numbers of illegals being chauffeured across the channel and into luxury hotels etc

BUT even though he and his govt are very week they are still 10 times better than boring Starmer and his front bench of incompetent nobody's. the one area where bojo has shown some spine (so far!) is with our EU negotiations, I just hope that another u-turn is not imminent!!

bojo cannot continue to hide behind the scientists, the country cannot afford it and he needs to get all the powers that be to start talking positively and encouragingly. CV is not the lethal disease first thought and even now the recent spikes are mostly under 30s whose survival rates are excellent, as succinctly demonstrated by the fact the hospitals are not being inundated and are still operating well under capacity. bojo needs to observe the real life data and make decisions based on that instead of listening to someone who sits in a room with a computer putting shit in and getting shit out.
 
Is it true though?
Actually, whether it's true or not is, in this case, immaterial. The negotiations will be harder for the EU if they believe that there is a section of the governing party who think that the WA is not good enough, and our negotiators can convincingly use WTO rules as a solution which is acceptable to our side.
 
Is it true though?
Boris Johnson’s next Tory rebellion could be on Brexit

The headline is true in the same way that ‘The Earth could be destroyed by a meteorite’ or 'Dominic Cummings could go to SpecSavers for his next eye test’ are both true.

That any manner of things ‘could’ happen does not mean that they will. More Boris Grrr...

But yet they were overjoyed with The WA last year and hailed Bozo a genius with his “oven ready deal”.

What’s changed? Surely they minutely scrutinised The WA and understood it totally and didn’t need anymore time to scrutinise it.

They didn't.
 
Do you think that they just did what The Whips told them to do and spent their revising time in the subsidised bar?

Would you be including the 19 Labour MP's who voted for the WA, against Corbyn and the whips ?

Or is it only Tories who use the subsidised bars ?

Are the 19 Labour MPs who voted for it, now returning and complaining about the contents of The WA that they voted for and insisted that no more Parliamentary scrutiny time was required?

If not, then it’s not relevant to what I posted.

Are all the Tory MPs who voted for it casting doubts now? If not then your post is not relevant!
 

IDS appears to have made a fool of himself over this.

It is when you made this assertion

Do you think that they just did what The Whips told them to do and spent their revising time in the subsidised bar?

You might have phrased it as a question but the inference is very clear.

How can an apparent section of the ruling party now claim that they don’t like The WA after voting for it, telling everyone how great it was and denying further scrutiny for it?

Either it has miraculously changed or they didn’t read it properly and did as they were told to do.

Or something else has changed, and caused them to rethink.
