Beautiful and inspiring Boris speech electrifies the Conference

Boris Johnson’s brilliant, inspirational and moving speech was without doubt the highlight of a horribly lacklustre conference. A standing ovation and again he is the darling of the grass roots.    Boris began: 

As our hearts go out to Las Vegas today we are reminded once again of the attack that took place here only a few months ago, on innocent and music-loving young people. And if there is a message to our American friends it is this: that they will come through it and they will come back from it stronger.  Continue reading

Bully boy Norris tells Boris the 1922 Committee in charge, shut it or they will sack you

In an ugly display of fascist style behaviour, Steven Norris and Philip Hammond ganged up on Boris Johnson yesterday, threatening him with the sack if he didn’t stay silent over Brexit.

Bully boy Norris even said the 1922 Committee would end Boris’s career! Oh are they running the country and Brexit,  Steve, I didn’t realise!   In my innocence, I thought that the EU Referendum was the chance of voters to decide whether we left or stayed in the EU!  We were told, in Parliament, by the then PM our decision would be final.  But it’s the 1922 committee running May and making the decisions, is it.   Forgive me, my mistake!  Continue reading

Brilliant Boris vindicated. Proof we give £660 million to EU a week!

As  the smears, lies and vile abuse raged around him, Boris Johnson’s dignified response was that he stood by his referendum claim that we give £376 million a week to the EU – or more!

Now the truth is out!  Since 2010, we have given a stonking £660 million a week to the EU.   Continue reading

Spy game. Gove and Osbo spotted on holiday in Germany

What can they have to talk about?  Michael Gove and George Osborne were spotted this week on holiday together in Germany.  The former Cabinet pals were pictured attending Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle in the Bavarian town Bayreuth – an opera about the struggle for power.

The pages of the London Standard seem dipped in acid, as George works out his angst trashing his nemesis, Boris Johnson and ripping into Theresa May in the nastiest possible terms. Continue reading

Rein in Uber! Sadiq Khan skewered by furious Assembly members

For once every single member of the London Assembly is united against the Mayor of London over maverick, rule breaking Uber.  The Uber licence is up for renewal in September, and if Sadiq Khan is fool enough to renew the licence, he will be ripped to pieces by his own Assembly members. 

Sadiq’s big mouth bragging has finally come back to haunt him.  This is the man who vowed when he was running for Mayor that if Uber trangressed only once, he would pull their licence!   There are so many reasons to pull Uber off the road, critics have lost count, but instead, a year after becoming Mayor, Khan renewed the Uber licence.  Continue reading

“The real Chancellor” carves up George Osborne

As Chancellor,  George Osborne spent the least time of anyone in the Treasury sorting out the economy.   Ever the delegator, he left that minor job to someone else.  He was tied up with the important stuff,  permanent manoeuvres to ensure that he succeeded David Cameron as PM.  Smoozing,  threatening, devoting hours every week to cultivating Tory back-benchers and ingratiating himself with allies in the Press, this was the work that really mattered. 

Rupert Harrison, Osbo’s Chief of Staff, was “the real Chancellor”.  When Harrison left, the economy went A over T.  Now Harrison turns on his old boss to slaughter George for an attitude to Brexit that is “too gloomy and over the top”. Continue reading

Constant attacks on Boris Johnson are making his rivals look desperate

An excellent article by Peter Oborne discusses the vicious plot going on right now to get rid of Boris Johnson and many of the plotters are in the Tory party.  But unless you are on twitter all the time like me, you wouldn’t know that the Get Boris campaigns have been going on for yonks, even before Brexit.

Here are some of the rivals who have been trying to take down Boris,  one or two of them since before Theresa May became PM. They are waxing ever more desperate as they fail to achieve their goal. Continue reading
