    So Boris is going to have daily Presidential style briefings with Journalists similar to the White House press briefings.

    He's a bloody Prime Minister , not a President. His duty is to report to Parliament, not launch schemes to bypass and minimise it.

    This is the worst sort of populism as Bojo is rubbish in the commons he is going to try and neuter it.

    Well he has just got a Presidential Jet.

    He needs the practice. One day he might get to communicate properly and maybe even remember things he should.

    :) Don't hold out much hope. He lives in Borisonia. We have to put up with living in the real world.

    He is just a total disaster, we've somehow ended up with a clown in charge, and a dangerous clown in that. Just look at the three countries with the biggest covid disasters and look who they are run by. Bolsonaro, Trump, Boris - three peas in a pod. what a fecking mess and we're still going downhill.

    As a tory voting unionist I never thought I would say this, but if we had an indyref up here the morrow I would be voting Yes, Sturgeon with all the bits I dislike about her politics, is a 1000x the politician boris is, and a much safer pair of hands.

    Bumbling Boris the clown must be the biggest numpty to ever be in charge of our country.

    He isn't. The Cabinet is. Boris is to help them get elected but traditionally carries the can.

    No, Boris is the fault of momentum, Corbyn and his looney left chums would have been worse.

    Great pity Starmer had not been in the running.

    Populist leaders have to deliver to stay popular.

    I used to find Sturgeon quite irritating -but during this pandemic she has been statesmanlike.

    Given that NI will remain in the Single Market, I can see quite a few businesses that sell principally into the EU -moving their operation to NI.

    if that gives NI a competitive advantage I can see support for inde ref 2 really climbing. I would be sad to see the complete break up of the UK.

    Typical contempt from the lwr as usual.
    17,410,742 vote to leave the eu. The largest result in history.
    The greatest result in history.

    Then spend the next 3 years trying to scupper the result.
    Sore losers.
