Pontius Navigator,

Your correction is 100% accurate and I couldn't agree more. I was party to a conversation recently when someone said, second hand, that they had heard someone confront Cameron on this, and his response was "it wasn't my fault, it will all be in the book...."

Better late than never, albeit never would be the better option, here's Boris about to lumber into the public gaze......which must be giving his handlers nightmares given his propensity for , as they say in Belfast "talking when you should have been thinking "......

Should be entertaining to watch and listen to.......providing the salt mines of Cheshire can keep up the supply due to excessive demand.

Latest MP declared voting intentions. 107 is 50% and the target to guarantee going through to the final two to the membership vote. With 83 votes still undeclared Boris could be over the top if he picks up just a third of them.

Johnson 78,

Hunt 37,

Gove 34,

Raab 23,

Javid 19,

Hancock 16

Harper 8

Stewart 7

McVey 6

Leadsom 4

Thw fact that the conservative party could picka buffoon, liar, cheat, fraudster as PM speaks volumes about **** the country just hang on to power at any price.
For example the party itself has no backing in the country or parliament -the council and MEp elections had considerably more remainers than leavers and they base their strtegy on winning back the arch right racist element in Britain -great. They can have as many PMs as they like but no second referendum

Boris and his income tax promise and no deal no pay to Eu could trigger a sovereign debt default a disaster and he is willing to risk it. What an utter bastard

And today he says he can unite the country-well he cannot because most remainers hate him more than brexit and continue to do everything to undermine him.

Of those in the running only Jeremy Hunt seems to have any common sense and realism about him - whether he is a criminal ( in the sense of breaking criminal laws) or not unlike a surprising number of leading Tories.

You keep saying this. Yet there is absolutely no evidence that it is true.

In the 'glass house' of media transparency, I wonder if any journalist anywhere could be found to ask questions on that who themselves had not taken illegal drugs or driven over the speed limit at some stage? "People who live in glass houses ..." and all that!!

This one is eating at you, isn't it? Well, I'll leave it to eat at you a whole lot longer!

(Getting even more dotty in your dotage, aren't you? I see that the 'dot diarrhea' is getting even worse. I suggest a good 'grammar therapy' session with Lynne Truss's fine publication.)

Well he didn’t answer a single question that he was asked during his Q and A after his launch.

Not that expected any different from him or any of the current crop of politicians. Rory Stewart I have time for but there is no chance he will get to the last 2 or get voted in by the Conservative party membership even if he did (unless Esther “one of the continents abroad somewhere” when pontificating about the new St Helena airport” Mcvhey is his opponent)

Personally have no doubt such a brute and selfish man "could do the job". He wants Brexit at the expense of ANYTHING but the character is not of human quality.

The popularity of the various candidates is a clear indication of the quality of the Tories and their elected representatives. Almost as informative are the identities of their backers. The bloated oaf has garnered support from the Truss woman - " this cheeses deal is an absolute disgrace" and " Beware the quiet man", the tonsorially challenged , hugely successful, short-term leader IDS. What a team!, what a combined intellect!
"Smile, they said,. it could be worse - so I smiled and it was worse!"

Boris....and the fine art of promoting Boris, as offered by, erm, Boris.

For somebody who aspires to be the next PM.......Dave started the demise of the UK, Boris will finish it.....then it was probably inevitable he would prefer not to get too involved regarding his short term as Foreign Sec......and with JR-M on your side, what could possibly go wrong....

Next Tory Leader. Our eve of poll snap survey. Johnson wins over half the vote – a record high.

Sadly we don't have any morally defensible candidates to choose from, its a reflection of society as a whole.

Who's Borris?

That will be confusing with a similar sounding Boris Johnson in the same contest, albeit with a different spelling.
