Hard times ahead, vacant positions for right wingers, what bit of humanity there was has left the building, the hard right will now be centre stage.

I never thought Boris would contemplate the leadership. Well, he's done it, and I hope he can bring the country together because it's probably the last ditch attempt.
Still the 'remainers' are kicking and screaming before he's got the key. The whole affair is so tiring now its difficult to imagine any change .

Heaven help us all if Corbyn and co should ever move into No 10. which I doubt , but that would clearly be the worst of all.

Good luck Boris .

Surely the appointment of a PM shouldn't be about leaving or remaining, when the brexit dust has settled( if it ever does) then we need someone to rebuild the country, to gain the trust of the people to do what is right, to fight inequality and heal divides, difficult to do for a party that has been the cause of it, one of his adoring party likened him to Churchill, a man they said that had made mistakes but held the country together, so perhaps they are hoping our floppy headed PM with his silly schoolboy grin and jolly japes will have us all singing for he's a jolly good fellow, while they feather their already guilded nests, to be honest granny, both of the main parties have lost their way, they seem to be more interested in their respective parties than the good of the country, the Lib Dems will jump into bed with anyone, and Farage is the worst of the lot, but yes it is difficult to imagine any change.

Boris can no more 'deliver' brexit than he can jump over the moon! You can forget it!

I don't know what the lunatics who voted for him will do when he fails to deliver. I don't expect they will string him up from the nearest lamp post. They are dim enough to say "Well that's Boris!" accompanied by an indulgent chuckle and a shake of the head.

As for Corbyn, the only thing you have to fear from him is that he will make you pay your taxes. If that's what you are afraid of, then the sooner he gets in the better.

Can only agree. So many have put their own personal preference before their own constituents , it's basically resulted in 'democracy' being a re-defined word .
I feel at a loss, but must keep some form of positivity and hope .

Could be wrong but I think Mr Corbyn is basically a good person , but do you not think that if he got in , he would ,with best intentions , put in so many money gobbling measures to make life easier for those who are having a difficult time financially , improve grants for this and that, remove various taxes, throw money at everything he could think of to try and fulfil promises to everyone , schools, hospitals , elderly care ,policing , more foreign aid , special policies for more immigrants etc all hugely expensive stuff - while at the same time hammering those in the country who own and run the businesses who employ the people who pay the taxes …..etc...etc...to the point where working hard is pointless , businesses go under because of too generous laws regarding staffing etc etc and so we borrow , borrow, borrow ----and eventually end up like a Southern hemisphere 3rd world country that owes to the point it can never ever pay back.

NO he's not a good person at all. He's a snivelling little devious rat. All you say I agree with Venice, he's already said he'd take back the NHS from PFI at a cost of £50 Billion !!!
How.. exchange it for Government Bonds. Ha !

N.B On Mrs May's leaving the House today after her last PMQ's, most of the House rose and applauded her as she left. Not the Labour front bench. They couldn't even stand up.. A row of puppets with the script in front of them.
Disgraceful ! A political party mainly made up from activists and rebels.
Even the SNP showed some courtesy and stood whilst applauding her exit.
Also noted that our own MP was not visible , but that's quite a common occurrence at PMQ's for her .

A third world country you say, are we not like a third world country now ? the UN concerned over the level of child poverty, a concern which the government poo pooed, food banks, people sleeping on the streets schools struggling, people laying on trollies in hospital entrances, All we need now is for Boris to get involved with Iran, maybe thinking of a Falkland factor, plenty of flag waving and brass bands, send our third world navy and depleted army, I really hope not.

I can't stand Corbyn and his self styled Robin Hood act. Rob the rich and give to the poor, sounds great but total fantasy! His monotonous voice goes through me I'm afraid and think he's totally false, a snake in the grass as I've said before....

The rich have robbed the poor to an unbelievable extent, what on earth is wrong with levelling (not even reversing) that process.

As I keep saying .... This Government has SPENT more money than any other UK Government in History, where do you think that money has gone when every Government expenditure the average person is aware off has been reduced.

Just a bit more of an interesting ride up to Halloween. But politics hasnt changed with the current parties so i cant see how BJ (isnt that short for something else ??!!) will make it happen. Just a delaying tactic to help keep career politicians milking the cow.
