Scarily so.

A bumper BoJo bullshit bonanza for your perusal this morning...















'Not the Boris we're used to': Johnson's ruthlessly organised bid for PM

Tory MPs ‘gobsmacked’ by lengths to which frontrunner’s team is going in attempt to win support
Boris Johnson’s campaign to be Britain’s next prime minister is being organised ruthlessly to limit his media appearances and minimise the potential for gaffes while trying to lovebomb wavering MPs
moderates such as the young rising star Johnny Mercer :lol:

James Duddridge, a Tory MP, said he was backing Johnson because of his clear Brexit policies but also because he was “electorally attractive and with a track record of turning the volume up and getting out there”. He also said it was necessary to have a “Marmite politician” at a time when he would be up against fellow populists Corbyn and Nigel Farage.

“I think Boris has the wow factor … He just ticks so many boxes. It’s about having a politician with a pulse, who you can believe in,” he said

Matt Hancock's launch on Sky News goes swimmingly:

Apparently, Gove has just bound onto the stage to the tune of Queen's "One Vision" at his campaign launch. Surely "Death On Two Legs" would've been a more fitting choice of Queen ditty, given his latest polling numbers?

Given Gove's current difficulties I think it's looking like a run off between Hunt and Johnson for the top job but wouldn't be surprised if Hunt dropped out before the grassroots vote if Johnson offers to make him chancellor. Hunt has plenty of time on his side so could afford to wait a few more years for the top job.

I saw Raab this morning telling us he's going to take a " buccaneering approach to free trade". I can see him now, swinging onto the deck of a container ship, cutlass clenched twixt his teeth a la Errol Flynn.

Or will he just hire some Somali pirates?

I thought he looked less like a buccaneer than a rabbit caught in the headlights.

I said that to Mrs A and she said she thought he looked like a thick tosser. She's probably right.
