Peter Bone: "Boris knows all the world leaders, he was foreign secretary"

He was easily the worst Foreign secretary in living memory.


And he is despised by most of them...


The Foreign Office mandarins let it be known to the Dept of Foreign Affairs that they should "ignore his utterances" when he visited Dublin as Foreign Sec.

It should be Boris so that he owns that which he sought. He probably would have been PM three years ago if Gove hadn't stabbed him in the back. However without the full support of his MPs he will be as lame duck as Theresa May which begets a GE and a near certain wipeout of the tories in favour of the mad marxists.

Will people actually vote for a Corbyn Labour in a GE? Everything I see in the news and online is about people saying they're leaving Labour after years of supporting them. Either antisemitism stuff or his fence sitting on Brexit.

In 5 years time that deal might look pretty tasty. I think her real failing, apart from the GE, was not working cross party after the GE. Hamstring herself with the DUP and getting zero support from Labour on the deal was a disaster.

And in 5 years time it might not. Wow
She couldn't go the cross party route and take the right of her party with her. In that respect she put her party before her country until last week.

I feel sorry for her, while also blaming her for her problems. For Brexit she basically wanted to achieve an outcome for Brexiteers and Remainers. She broadly negotiated what Labour claimed they would do. But her complete distrust of her collegues and opposition meant she screwed herself by not seeking an sort of consensus or allies and then called an election where she badly missjudged how easy it was for Corbyn to tap into disaffection about austerity and the problems of globalisation despite increaisng her vote.

Exactly the opposite. She polarised the party.

By not meaning to :? More incompetence.

It was always going to be a hard sell. She manage to convince the majority of both sides she was going to do what they wanted. Impossible to deliver on that.

her real failing was her stupid red lines .... a failing which was compounded by the election mistake

a basically 50:50 vote in the referendum was a perfect excuse for a tory PM to say "Britain wants to trade heavily with the EU post brexit, so will stay closely aligned on regs etc ..... via a customs union"

the thick-as-pigshit NO voters wouldn't have even cared because they were still leaving ...... but May layed down her stupid red lines and 3 years of lunacy ensued

newsflash Brits ...... regardless of whichever fvckwit tory takes over the reins, the negotiations are over.

Time to either accept the WA, or alternatively crash out and shoot yourselves in the head (with the ricochet putting us in hospital thanks very much)

I genuinely love Britain and the brits (apart from the Welsh and DUP obviously) and the fact that such a great country is leaving, is fvcking tragedy frankly.

But at this stage we all need to prepare for a crash out, cos your politics is irreparably broken and we all need to move on and get brexit over with ....

what a fvcking shit show :frown:

Boris won twice in London, which is usually a guaranteed Labour win. If he becomes PM, his best bet will be to go for an early election before he can demonstrate his own incompetence. A Boris-led Tory party could well beat the 'mad marxists', because unlike May, he will actually campaign and is unlikely to have a manifesto made up of unpopular policies like the 'Dementia Tax'. Corbyn couldn't beat May last time out, even though she ran the worst campaign in UK electoral history. He won't beat Boris.

You may be right and you may be wrong but like you I don't know for sure either way. I suspect we will find out because we never were going to accept that deal and the EU are not going to offer anything else.

thats the whole point ...... she lost her party, the wider brexit population, and the little britain media, by retreating from those red lines ....... whereas if she'd just kept her gob shut and started off down the path of a soft brexit/customs union, the whole thing would have been done and dusted by now ....

there would have been:

no need to rely on DUP
no reinvigoration of UKIP/Farage
no pathway to prominence for the swivel eyed tory loons that seem to be multiplying like cancer cells

she's the architect of her own downfall and she's made the whole brexit tragedy 100x worse than it should have been

But was presented as a leave option by very many Brexiteers in the Leave campaign.

what a fvcking shit show :frown:



Agree with that, except the red lines were a media and party management narrative, not one remained by the end of the process and what’s now been presented.


thats the whole point ...... she lost her party, the wider brexit population, and the little britain media, by retreating from those red lines ....... whereas if she'd just kept her gob shut and started off down the path of a soft brexit/customs union, the whole thing would have been done and dusted by now ....

there would have been:

no need to rely on DUP
no reinvigoration of UKIP/Farage
no pathway to prominence for the swivel eyed tory loons that seem to be multiplying like cancer cells

she's the architect of her own downfall and she's made the whole brexit tragedy 100x worse than it should have been

A customs union would mean the UK would virtually have no chance signing it's own trade deals.

It should be Boris so that he owns that which he sought. He probably would have been PM three years ago if Gove hadn't stabbed him in the back. However without the full support of his MPs he will be as lame duck as Theresa May which begets a GE and a near certain wipeout of the tories in favour of the mad marxists.


Boris won twice in London, which is usually a guaranteed Labour win. If he becomes PM, his best bet will be to go for an early election before he can demonstrate his own incompetence. A Boris-led Tory party could well beat the 'mad marxists', because unlike May, he will actually campaign and is unlikely to have a manifesto made up of unpopular policies like the 'Dementia Tax'. Corbyn couldn't beat May last time out, even though she ran the worst campaign in UK electoral history. He won't beat Boris.

I agree Boris is their best option when it comes to campaigning against Corbyn but with Brexit unresolved Farage will eviscerate the Conservatives which makes a Labour led coalition the most likely outcome.
