It would appear the Sunday Times agrees with me, and they have some polling data to support the conclusion that:
Boris Johnson as Prime Minister will put an end to the UK.
May Cthulhu have mercy on our souls.
Boris? THAT Boris? Really? 🤢
Sounds like a football chant:
There's only one Boris Johnson...
Thankfully that is true. One is too much already.
@fitheach That is accelerationism theory, yes
I'm not sure. There isn't much ideology left in British politics (in some quarters, anyway). The whole Brexit thing has a Trump feel about it.
@fitheach the Brexiteers must understand that they are a Minority and should bow to the Democratic Principle and give up
The Brexiteers are a huge majority in the Conservative party. They would also sell their grannies if it enabled Brexit to happen.
@fitheach noone wanys their grannies
@fitheach they can migrate to Iceland where they are safe from the EU and we are safe from them
@fitheach ufff! Want to make the mistake of major constitutional change on such a slim majority? Cripes, look at Brexit.
I'm all for starting the referendum campaign now, even if we were behind in the polls. The only real way to get Yes ahead is through a campaign.
If I had been in Nicola's shoes (I know, they probably wouldn't fit) I would've started the campaign two years ago.
@fitheach Last week I said it was a two horse race (Boris/Gove) but surprisingly Gove's Coke faux-pas seems to have opened the way for Jeremy H[C]unt.
No political analysis required. Just check the odds at the bookies.
Yup, he should have gone for Pepsi.
@fitheach again, I was about to ask 'Who the feck would give a flying fuck that Gove snorted cocaine when he was a journo 20 years ago ?'
...but the answer, as always, is the elderly, wizened, sleeping Torygraph readers (stereotypical Tory party members). They care.
It's like a Harry Enfield sketch.
@fitheach Oh you don't want to pay any heed to his friends at the Torygraph !
@fitheach This is like watching 'Kasperletheater' (the German word is most fitting, I think). He who must be Punch(ed).
No, I think that is too high brow for UK politics. 😉
Oh, no! Look at the hair colour.
@fitheach Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear!
@fitheach I feel a bit sick looking at this
Going purely off seats for the right-wing (CON+BXP):
Johnson - 395
Cunt - 288
Javid - 261
Gove - 274
Raab - 293
Stewart - 303
Yup. Give or take a few seats you need 322 to have an absolute majority at Westminster. Johnson provides the best opportunity for the Tories.
I expect Stewart and possibly 1 or 2 others to drop out before the next round.
BTW I think you have a typo on your list.
 Depends how many Sinn Féin get.
