It's worth remembering what former Tory MP, and colleague of Boris Johnson, Matthew Parris, who's had chance to see him "work" close up as a journo, London mayor and Foreign Secretary has to say about him (and he's missed out here that he's already been sacked twice for lying, leaving aside the dozens of other times he's been shown to lie but faced no consequences for it):

1) Makes him a suitable candidate then. Nice of you to endorse him.
2) Correct credentials to be a politician
3) Fit well in the Corbyn & McDonald Labour Party who’s motto is ‘deny, lie & smear’ oh and accuse anyone and everyone outside that of being a facist & racist.

Think that about covers it 😁

I wouldn’t go so far as saying proud. Like all parties, say one thing do something else or grandstand the sound bites but slip stuff in under the radar. My personal choice is them rather than labour in a way it is a bit like following Swindon. If they are shit you can stop going if your party pisses you off you don’t vote. When things improve they get your patronage.

As to your question, I was going to tease you and give a Regesque reply but don’t have the time. In short the man or woman who goes back to the EU and says improve the deal and include a trade deal or we walk, as for the £39b think again until you address the deal. BTW rethink your threats and posturing over the Irish issue, you can put up a border if you like as we won’t. In short grow a pair and stand up for this country.

So as usual when confronted with evidence that X is a scumbag, your response is "Well what about Y?". It's not an answer and you know it. I assume from your deflection/lack of answer, you'd actually be happy with Johnson in charge then?

It's a tough question, to be fair.

It's like being asked "Which is your favourite sexually transmitted disease?"

Indeed. But it was also a straight question, which as usual he ducked, by setting out a list of criteria which pretty much all the candidates fulfil, because they're all equally divorced from reality. The choice is between 10 or 11 different fantasists, just take your pick of what level of competence and shithousery you'd like with your fantasy promises.

In short grow a pair and stand up for this country promise fairies that they know cannot be delivered but sound good to the nationalists, default on longstanding legal obligations and make the country an international pariah who will find it nigh impossible to do any trade deals and reintroduce terrorism to Northern Ireland.

Corrected for you.

Chatting to a mate who's a member on Monday... there aren't many in Swindon, he'd like Harper on the basis he went to Headlands, and Regent's Circus College, before Oxford.

I am coming round to the idea that Johnson would probably be the best bet. Ok it would elevate our being a laughing stock from a European to worldwide audience, probably trash much of the economy, in the longer term facilitate Scottish independence and generally unleash a shit storm in NI, but the country is well and truly fucked already so why not go entirely balls in?

On the bright side it would probably destroy the Tories as a credible force fr a couple of generations and what with the sterling work Labour are doing to make themselves similarly broken hopefully bring about a seismic shift in politics.

Jesus. What a way to choose the next PM. And this is the "thought process" of the 0.25% of the population who will decide which of the fantasists, nutters and charlatans gets to drive us off the edge of the cliff.

To be fair, Rory Stewart doesn't appear to be a fantasist in policy, just in anticipating he has any chance whatsoever.

That's about the only positive I can see coming out of this whole mess. Although I'm reminded that when you find yourself thinking "Well at least things can't get any worse" it usually means they are just about to. About the only way we could make this situation worse is by having a man with the proven track record of both incompetence and deceit of Johnson in charge.
