Boris Johnson’s tax cut proposals would cost the exchequer as much as £20bn a year while mainly benefiting richer households, according to calculations by the Institute for Fiscal Studies.
Well put. I suspect he wants to emulate Churchill's term entirely, the whole premiership focused around a single issue where he can chuck the day-to-day administration in the loft and not have to think about it for 5 years.davidjay wrote: ↑Tue Jun 25, 2019 9:47 pmApologies for repeating what's been said on here before, but I'm convinced Trump never wanted to be President - he wanted to run for the publicity it would bring for his business interests and TV profile, when he looked like winning he did his best to lose and when he did eventually win he realised he could do what ever he liked with no comebacks, which is what he's doing now.
In a similar way, and here I am directly lifting from an earlier post, what Johnson really wants is to be the former Prime Minister. He wants the fame and attention he'll receive for the rest of his life, he wants the income that comes from it, he wants to be able to opine on matters of grave concern with the gravitas accorded an elder statesman, and he wants to be able to look back and know that he got the top job. What he doesn't want is to have to do the job itself, because he knows that then there'll be nowhere to hide, no colleagues to stick the blame onto and he'll be shown up for the posting, shallow, buffoon that deep down he knows he really is.
