    This is all getting very odd. It's almost as though Johnson is trying to self-sabotage his campaign. Perhaps it's his advisors, though. Maybe they're linked to the betting syndicates that George C is always going on about and got long odds on Jez H at the start of the leadership election process.

    Seriously, though, Johnson's playing this dreadfully poorly. He might as well do some televised debates with Hunt - he'd be quite charming, crack a few witticisms and his fans would forgive him his lack of detail. It's already priced in. It's not as though Hunt is particularly articulate or the owner of a well-considered political philosophy or policy platform with which to wow the viewers.

    And as for the argument with his g/f, well, why didn't he just say that he'd had a row with his partner, as we all have at some point I presume, but that it wasn't serious, they're all good now and it was a private matter anyway and of no-one else's concern.

      Are you unfamiliar with the man's body of work?

        We need more of the latter then. Especially with a prospectively 'dangerous' PM about to installed.

          Making models of buses: unusual but not that odd. Pretending you make models of buses: hmm.

              I wonder what b*ll*cks he writes along the sides of those...

                He probably did it once, when he was about ten years old.

                  That he uses the bus story to launch a lie about his useless new Routemaster really doesn't add to its credibility, as noted above.

                  "I like to paint them full of people fainting due to uncontrollable temperatures and always with the back door firmly closed. Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres. For sure."

                    It was "wooden crates" at first, then they seemed to become cardboard boxes.

                            It's a fucking reckless and pointless kind of lie. Guess he was trying to be flippant.

                              Unless heís caught on camera anally raping The Queen before the Tory members get to tick their box, Johnson is going to be our PM. The fools would probably choose Farage over him if they had the option, but even so, itís so bloody depressing that a lying and incompetent buffoon who fancies himself as Pericles will be our next Prime Minister.

                                See the narcissism thread. My unexpert opinion is that this is where it tips over into illness - he can't help making a stupid, stupid lie.

                                  I think hunt has a chance- which might be worse in the long run...

                                    Yeah, at least there's an Evens chance Johnson breaks the Union(s).

                                            I remember when he withdrew from the 2016 leadership election. He looked anything but distraught. At the time I thought that he was rather impressively putting a brave face on it but it might just be that, consciously or sub-consciously, he knows that he's not up to the job.

                                              I think that he knew that he couldn't guarantee a victory and that May wouldn't hesitate to turn nasty if it came to it. So he's spent the last couple of years cultivating the Bannons and Crosbys of this world for the inevitable second go around.

                                                I read this as a piece of satire but I think most of it is true. Fuck.

                                                  Boris Johnson "Foreigners must speak English"

                                                  Why not go the whole hog and outlaw the speaking of Welsh again.

                                                  (After all, the roots of Welsh means "foreigner" - as does "Walloon")

                                                    Trump and Johnson seem to use the same talking points within days of each other. Racist Australian policies in this case.
