Unless Boris Johnson does something stupid (can't be discounted) he probably has the leadership in the bag.

Voting intentions for the various parties with different Conservative leaders:


May Cthulhu have mercy on our souls.

Boris? THAT Boris? Really? 🤢

@ParadeGrotesque @fitheach I’ll never understand what people like about Boris - he is obviously an incompetent liar.

He cultivates the lovable clown persona. Why people get taken in with that projection, I don't know.


@fitheach @ParadeGrotesque I guess “lovable clown” is a marked improvement over the “horror clown” type that seems to be favored by US conservatives.

The lovable part is the projection. The horror part might be real, just partially hidden.


@fitheach @tsturm

I am afraid Boris is just Donald T with slightly less incompetence and a posh Cambridge accent.

So, yeah, him as UK PM sucks rocks through a straw. To borrow a nice turn of phrases from across the pond.
