We could end up with Jeremy Hunt because we don't get to choose.  No doubt it will be a remainer who replaces Boris..

Aye, lockdown can only a matter of days away, as the lovely Nicola engages her favourite 'control' obsession.

Then everyone's favourite 'jobsworth' the Welsh wizard 'Drakeford' will announce similar - Crazy!

Somehow 'Pinochio' has got to re-write the Triple lock. Either on one hand by saying the 'bulk of public opinion' is against 'baby - boomers' getting even richer at the cost of their grand children (as if capital drip-down didn't exist). Or alternatively he removes CPI inflation from it's menu of consideration. A tricky one even for a skilful liar to achieve.

To pay out UK pensioners at CPI in 2023, is around £10 billion. A lot, but he has already taken over half that in advance for breaking the terms this year with a miserly 3.1% when they could clearly see double figure inflation on the horizon. Also paying Pensioners in line with Tory Party Manifesto promises to honour the 'triple lock' is non-inflationary. We make or service nothing, unlike say Train drivers etc. Also 95% of Pensioners pay income tax at source!

Don't forget it was The Coalition Tory/Lib dems who established the lock in 2010 and the Liberals were quick to re-assure Tavistock and Honiton voters of their intention to honour that commitment in the next General Election - (watch them forget that one!)! Another reason the 'red herring' announcement by this administration to coalesce with Triple lock next time, two days before polling, another cheap falsehood.

Overall, a despotic and frivolous way to handle many life-time Tory supporters, which is why they stayed home Thursday.

Quote from: hugh on Today at 01:47:43 PMMy view is he should stay put, he his far better leader than Sharmer and no one stands out to replace Boris. Still a lot of remainers on the back benches who would like to see the back of him. A lot of the red wall seats will ended up back with Labour which is to be expected.

Boris so far done a very good job as PM so the only reason party gate gone on so long they have nothing else to get their teeth into.

As you know I disagree Hugh. Johnson has all the structures of a criminal mind. As a lifelong Tory, he must go immediately to save the Party. With a two year lead in, David Frost a man of integrity and gravitas, should replace him and be given the time to re-establish true Conservative values. Not the wish-wash of Remainer driven, neo-liberal edicts this shameful weak willed man has touted.
