    John Crace in The Guardian is on top form!

    "In the final showdown between The Incredible Sulk and The Incredible Silk there could only be one winner. This time it was personal. Taking her seat as president of the supreme court, Lady Hale placed a black cap on her head. Part Bond assassin, part To the Manor Born."

      Small matter to discuss of giving a young'ish lady thousand of pounds from the public purse.

        A general election will solve nothing, in fact it will probably make matters worse. We need either a second referendum or an extension to Art.50, and/or a government of national unity. We also (though this might be viewed as an extreme measure) need to abolish the right wing press which carry on printing bile and misinformation.

                Please can we “remain” on the subject of Boris, there’s lots of scope there, and “leave” the toxic subject in the “sin bin”.

                Thanks.

                  Definitely, lets talk about the model turned business woman with a dancing pole in her flat.
                  He may have given her loads of taxpayers cash, but he hasn't slept with her, oh good.
                  We know this because her Mum says so, daresay Boris told her that then.

                  This is a serious matter conveniently overshadowed by an equally serious matter

                    Perhaps it's time to remind ourselves of what Mathew Parris (no left-winger) said in The Times in 2016.

                    "Referring to that performance, he wrote: “Watch a portrait in miniature of Johnson the politician: underprepared, jolly, sly, dishonest and unapologetic but (and this is the worrying part) horrifyingly vulnerable.

                    Parris added: “But there’s a pattern to Boris’s life, and it isn’t the lust for office, or for applause, or for susceptible women, that mark out this pattern in red warning ink. It’s the casual dishonesty, the cruelty, the betrayal; and, beneath the betrayal, the emptiness of real ambition: the ambition to do anything useful with office once it is attained.”

                    And yet there are those that are still prepared to support the execrable POS!

                        Excellent article Jim, thanks. These are dangerous times and the last thing we need is a mendacious, incompetent, risible charlatan in No.10.

                            And yet people are prepared to forgive him anything - his lies, chaotic and sordid personal life, on the grounds of 'It's just Boris being Boris'!

                            I expect that even the voters in his Uxbridge and Ruislip constituency are under no illusion that he'll make slightest attempt to stop the Heathrow runway let alone by lying in front of the bulldozers. The only ly/ie/ing he ever does is with his mouth!

                              Perhaps they will dig the ditch he mentioned the other week.

                                He can't do. They have no jurisdiction over such local issues.
