It is tempting call foul on the voting of the Tory MPs this evening that gave Boris Johnson his ideal candidate – you could say it was almost Nixonesque in its execution – if it wasn’t for the fact that this was one of the of the most treacherous electorate going. Let us not shed too many crocodile tears for the losers as a contestant in another vipers pit contest put it…” when you play the game of throne you win or die…”
So we have four weeks of listening to Jeremy “Interesting” Hunt tells us why even though he thought Brexit was a bad idea he has now seen the error of his ways. At the same time all Boris has to do is ruffle his hair and say ‘Cripes‘ a lot or perhaps misquote some Roman orator. Well I guess this is what happens when a Charterhouse boy goes up against an Eton boy – one is somewhat series the other is a scoundrel – you decide which one is which.
One final thought – once Boris is elected what of Gove and Stewart? Who knows but there is every chance they will both be unpersons under the new regime. Pity that.
