If anything.

The partygate report which says he told porkies?
This report that says more dinghy boys arrived yesterday than all of January 2021?

The May council elections?
Something we don't know about yet?

Or will he go on to usher in solutions to all the ills that face us (energy prices, inflation, dinghy boys for starters) win the next election with a stonking majority and continue to 3 terms and beyond?

I reckon he'll be lucky to get to May myself.

For some reason the dinghy boys problem doesn't get much of an airing in the MSM.  When you talk to people, they worry about the energy price hikes first, then illegal immigration second, stuff the garden parties.   Is it safe to say those in parliament will live in nice areas, in nice houses ?  None of them will have groups of dinghy boys congregating at the end of their streets.

If they give Boris the push and elect a new leader, probably Sunak, will he fair any better ? I doubt it he'll face exactly the same problems.

I, for one, do not want to see Boris go..
But he is teetering over the edge.

They (Conservatives).. Should be sticking together ..If they show that they have no confidence in their leader it will make the voter even less confident in the party..
They should ride the storm and do something positive to appease the voters..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Well it seems pretty obvious to me that 'Partygate' requires no effort whatsoever by the opposition, whereas coming up with ideas about the dinghy immigrants, the world-wide fuel crisis, the Ukraine etc does.

Of course they will Alex, the sort that gets to be Prime Minister will never know the problems that are important to us the ordinary people, we want someone who is far more down to earth and lives in the real world.  As I have said before, I am far more concerned with the invasion of Britain by the dinghy people than Ukraine.

it beggars the question,.

do you think Boris is doing a good job as prime minister,

and has sunak  the chancellor, done a good job as he asset strips almost every thing. and yet manages to give the M.Ps a whopping pay rise which makes me wonder just how much debt he,s got us into  and why is he giving  M.Ps a whopping £10,000 a year pay rise each, and  at the same time ,.

the pandemic was extraordinarily costly. Given that he has somehow to find ways to pay back those costs - or they will still be being a burden to our grandchildren, tax rises are inevitable. How that can be squared with a big rise for MPs when the man and the woman in the street are facing ever greater costs, is a mystery to me.

Let's hope that it's a Cul de SACK !   :grin:

The first I have heard about pay rises for Boris and MP's.  They have got a nerve when many people don't know how they will pay for their gas and electric after the price hike or pay the extra National Insurance contributions. How much pay rise are nurses getting 1% I think and pensioners have lost out on the triple lock this year. 

Have just been watching the Last Czar's on Netflix, they were completely out of touch with the people and look what happened to them.  Don't these people ever learn?  I fear Starmer will be our next Prime Minister, heaven help us  :nooo:

klondike

If they get elected he probably won't be PM for long. The party will oust him and we'll get our first Marxist PM. The Labour Party rules make them unelectable IMO let alone prats like Starmer.

exactly right Phil, they have no answers only questions, any student can ask a cogent question, but it takes a 'master' to answer them
