LISTEN: Stanley Johnson on Boris for Leader

You know how it is when your dad lets the cat out of the bag and gives away the whole plan for you to become Tory leader:

“100% not. As a matter of fact this is a purely hypothetical exercise because, as you know, the Conservatives firmly expect to win an overall majority at the next election. We firmly expect the leader to be in place then. It’s a question of just getting some appropriate system. It doesn’t seem to me to be reasonable in this day and age, you know, you have got plenty of candidates out there. Why should the candidates only be Members of Parliament? I’m really suggesting that there are other people who have been elected, there have for example been MEPs, you know these are a reasonable bunch of people – men and women. All I’m saying is there is a case for looking at the rules. You’ve got MEPs, you’ve got councillors, you’ve got other elected mayors, you’ve, by the way, got a group of Lords, elected Lords, they have an election. I am saying, surely the moment has come to have another look at the rules?”

Who could he have possibly had in mind…

      Apart from anything else, he’s completely wrong. The leader has to be an M.P. otherwise who’s going to do PMQ’s if they get elected?

      And we thought Benn was an old buffoon.

        was it something I said? says:

        I’m sure some mate of Boris in a safe seat could be persuaded to step aside.

        Remember it was Boris who, against all the odds, saw off Livingston – twice and finally turned the tide of Labour victories.

        We know he can’t keep his dick in his pants. We know he’s a tongue-tied buffoon. But people like him. He is, incredibly, a winner.

        Dave, by contrast, had only the Maximum Imbecile to beat. The most hated and repellent PM in history and still managed to ship about 5 million votes to Clegg. When he didn’t even have to agree to a leadership debate. And, if he did feel he had to, should have insisted on keeping it between himself and Brown.

        What did he think was going to happen?

        Blair flat refused to have a debate with Major. Because he knew that, however small, there was a risk he might fuck up. A risk he didn’t need to take.

        Much better for BoJo NOT to do PMQs – can you imagine the carnage?! A DPM would be sufficient to entertain the backbenchers and inflame the opposition. And I’m sure that Boris would be interested in being answerable to parliament – after all, he was born to rule.

    Why would you go public with such a huge winning? Idiot!!! says:

    The identity of a car mechanic who won £107.9m on the Euromillions lottery has been revealed as Neil Trotter, 41, of Coulsdon, south London.

    Mr Trotter, who runs a repair garage in Mitcham called Chameleon Coachworks, scooped the jackpot on Friday.

    He was so confident he would win he told staff at his father’s office on Friday lunchtime, “this time tomorrow” he would be a multi-millionaire.

    His lucky ticket made him the National Lottery’s fourth biggest winner.

    He is the first Euromillions jackpot winner from the UK this year.

        Possibly condescending but in general I agree.

        One reason I don’t play the lottery is the shitty odds.

        But another reason is that actually I’ve got no need for 100 million quid. I’m perfectly happy with the life I have. 100m quid would just mean I fly at the front of the plane. But when I get there I’d still just be another gimp at the airport. Yeah, sure you can stay at nice 5* hotels. But what do you do for a ‘treat’ if your life is already First Class flights, 5* hotels and 3 Michelin Star meals?

        Same as all these rich idle c*unts. End up snorting c*o*ke off a bog seat.

    ‘A proposal to end the criminal offence of failing to buy a TV licence is being considered for inclusion in a bill before Parliament.

    It comes after Tory MP Andrew Bridgen’s suggestion to make non-payment a civil matter gained the support of 143 MPs.

    The BBC has said it fears a change may lead to more people failing to pay.’

    Has Bridgen got this right? This will do nothing to curtail the Capita thugs but more worryingly as a civil matter the courts will require less burden of proof to find against someone who, for e.g., uses iplayer for their viewing. An of course the civil debt will then be enforced by bailiffs and adverse credit scores.

    Bridgen’s got this completely wrong. It would have been better to have chosen one of the following;

    a) Make the BBC advertise

    b) Establish the BBC as a subscription service

    c) Sell the BBC off

    d) Close the BBC down
