Brian Cox: ‘I Want to Be Prime Minister’

Telly boffin Brian Cox revealed he wants to become Prime Minister as he hinted he could set up a political party and embark on a career at Westminster. On BBC Radio 2’s Chris Evans breakfast show, Professor Cox said:

“I should just try and be Prime Minister, bring a bit of common sense… At the moment I dunno, and I’m not being party political, you can look across all parties and you think it’d be great if a scientist were just having a bit of clarity of thought, you know? Wouldn’t it?”  

No. A listener texted in and suggested Brian’s party could be called “The Rational Front”…

Boris responds to Tusk…

“I don’t want a No Deal Brexit but I say to our EU friends if they don’t want No Deal they have got to get rid of the backstop from treaty. If Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down in history as Mr No Deal Brexit then I hope this point will be borne in mind by him too.”
