Boris has just topped polls of Con Home, You Gov and Oddschecker to follow May as Tory Leader. Then the Sun poll came to the same result.
Oddschecker is hugely bullish on Boris’s chances.
The former London mayor was 5/1 to land the top job in the Tory party just 48 hours ago, however one bookmaker has slashed him to 3/1 to takeover when Thersea May departs. It’s not just the bookies who believe Johnson’s chances to take charge are increasing, the punters also fancy his chances. Continue reading
To hear Jeremy Corbyn brag, you would think he had a 20 point lead over the Tories. In GE17, in spite of the blatant student cheating and even more blatant lies about refunding and cancelling student debt, Jezza still lost. And that was with Theresa May giving the worst example of a leader fighting an election anywhere, ever.
By the time of the next general election, hopefully, Peter Bone will have plugged the loophope that allowed so many students to vote twice, or even three times. He will have brought in a database, that makes such dishonourable strategems impossible. Continue reading
Are they having a laugh? Brussels’ latest unsubtle manoeuvre is to create EU super-citizens who can live in Britain and have more rights than us.
These EU citizens will not be subject to British law, and will enjoy rights we can only dream of. The Sun reports today: Brussels will demand EU citizens living in Britain post-Brexit indefinitely keep their full range of rights – meaning the European Court of Justice will still have power over UK law. Continue reading
Nigel Lawson says he is not surprised Boris Johnson is frustrated. He is shocked at the negative approach of the Government to Brexit, and he completely understands why the Foreign Secretary finally spoke out.
The former chancellor said public finances would be boosted and regulations cut regardless of a trade deal – and Theresa May and Philip Hammond should have been highlighting the advantages of leaving the EU.
The Tory peer said: ‘It is bizarre that it has been left to a seemingly freelance operation by Boris Johnson, Foreign Secretary, to explain what these benefits are. Continue reading

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

Robert Peston should be ashamed at the way he brushed aside the abusive behaviour of Corbynistas. Apparently a Tory MP has been suspended for using the phrase “n…… in a woodpile”. Daily Corbynista abuse is a million times worse than this.
Although I am a Tory, many of Mrs. May’s policies and decisions are not policies and decisions I agree with. But the abuse she gets is over the top. So indignant have I been at the cussing and blinding she receives, several times, I have told the tweeters responsible that they are out of line. Continue reading

Snide John Humphrys got smacked in the kisser by the firmness of Boris Johnson’s reply, as John tried to stir it up about a leadership battle. The media are the problem here. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds, because the ones like Con Home, who have endorsed her in glowing terms for years, are now the worst at putting the knife in.
I was watching Theresa, said Boris, and she showed steel and grace as she dealt with our problems. As far as Boris is concerned, there is no leadership contest because there is no vacancy. He doesn’t want to know. Mrs. May has shown a lot of courage in staying to redeem her election mistake. Her attitude is, I goofed, so let me put it right. All politicians make mistakes, but most of them then do a runner, whining, why should I have to sort out the mess? Continue reading
