If there's an immediate GE it wouldn't surprise me if Johnson offered the LDs a second referendum in the event of a hung parliament as the price to pay for saving the country from 'Marxist Corbyn.' And even PR because if he can't win an election from the right this year he's not going to in the future.

How can Patel be brought back after the last time? Cameron didn't bring Fox back.
Johnson desperately needs to stitch back together the traditional Tory coalition of bastards, wankers, shitheads, casino capitalists, extreme Eurosceptic nationalists, military fetishists, and golf club bores before facing the next GE, whenever on earth that occurs. Appointing someone like Patel to such a senior position is a big step in that direction.

That's likely to pile them up votes in safe seats and lose them marginals. But as said in the previous post there's a LD plan B which is mate Osborne (sniffing out for a seat again) can work on.

Meanwhile, the Mail has noted Johnson's spent a lot of taxpayer's money on furnishing No. 10 already.

I thought it was Socialists who liked spending other people's money? :roll:

Is there no other nuts without the baggage Patel has? Actually I suppose the baggage is the point. "Look at me, I don't give a fuck". Peerage for Rod Liddle.

Boris Johnson, the prime minister? I’m sorry to say that I’m partly to blame
Matthew d’Ancona

Johnson worked on his material like a standup preparing for a Netflix special. And we let him get away with it. Be absolutely candid: a fair few of you laughed along more than occasionally, didn’t you? Precisely because he was different, precisely because he didn’t seem like another starchy old Tory. https://amp.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... ssion=true

If you look at the archives here Matthew you won’t find any Boris love from the oh so clever posters. Except we’re not. The question is why didn’t smart people like you not spot such a transparent huckster?

Journalists love a good story, often more than they love reporting facts. They also think that we share this love and need everything wrapped up in a neat little package that obeys the laws of narrative causality.

The result is Johnson and Trump.

Just as well leave this here as anywhere else. We're way past 'Don't kid yourself that it can't happen here' now...

Project fear? The last three years have been more catastrophic than even the most pessimistic Remainer predicted

Now is the time to dread the first post-purge cabinet.

On an altogether unrelated note that Dominic Raab's been putting himself about the newsrooms
a lot today.
Not sweating at all.
All the bad stuff in his Britannia Unchained book (wot he wrote) was inserted by the editors.
So that's alright then!

Jeremy Corbyn.

I'd rather Margaret Beckett than Harriet Harman […]

Brexit Fuckwit Thread

Just so.

Owen Jones

Labour needs a re-boot, okay. But it needs to star[…]

Boris Johnson

Well that's completely different, though, isn't it[…]
