The Tory membership are <insert choice of profanity here>.

So it'll be Johnson, to deliver them their hallowed Brexit. Next it'll be the death penalty, and after that - who knows?

Twitter is circulating some fine conspiracy theories such as Johnson is the high access leaker. Too good not to believe.

Apparently we share diplomatic telegrams with allies. Perhaps someone abroad did it to show us the dangers of dealing with Trump. Or a Russian hack.

I'm actually reasonably relieved- I thought she was going to be Chancellor. Wonder who Johnson has in mind for that.

More of that famous "Fuck Business" strategy.

Is this the new Scottish Secretary? Johnson failed to say he'd keep Mundell (who has actually down proper work like transfering powers).

And he'd have a point.

Kim Darroch trashed a long and glittering civil service career on the basis of what he had been told Johnson said.

We're supposed to believe that.

I might watch the whole thing later. What a Trumpian cunt Johnson is just inventing a fictitious narrative to fill up airtime.

Darroch's friends say Johnson is wrong.

He even wears a Trump-style ultra-long tie (vide Steve Bell)

And again, the comments... Too many useful idiots batting for Johnson.

Perhaps it is a function of age but I do rather like my Screensaver Moments somewhat later in the afternoon. Truth is, I have done it for years; I put on the wireless and snooze for a half-hour before getting up and toddling off to the supermarket for the evening's comestibles.

It's perhaps not normal but I can assimilate the news without really processing it in any practical or immediate sense. It just goes in.

Anyway, the radio trails of Johnson's transparent lies were shocking enough to haul me back to the here and now.

This is Comical Ali level deceit on an epic scale. How can this even be a thing?

The final reckoning will lie with this monster's fellow travellers and whether they can stomach the tainted ministerial brief. I'd like to think that this might be a tipping point but, there again, I am prone to seeing the best in people and being bitterly disappointed.

One of the traits of a good man is to see some trace of goodness in others, even when there is none.

That's so kind, Mr A. But it is a default mechanism and how I deal with stuff.

(Perhaps that's for another day and another thread.)
