    It looks like Larry the Downing Street Cat is a shoe in for next Prime Minister. He’s clearly in a league of his own in terms of intellect, personality and competence, when compared to his other cabinet colleagues

    Maybe the Tory membership should decide whether it’s Larry or the lettuce.

    I have to say, though, it is a pretty good passing show they are putting on. With Boris trying to stage a comeback, it’s a rival to Coronation Street and EastEnders.

    They can end the energy crisis by ending sanctions against Russia & by nationalising the energy companies. The sad thing is, if any of the Conservative leadership candidates offered that solution, they would be ripped to shreds by the MSM.

    If Johnson were to become the next PM? The Tories have nothing but Blatant and
    utter contempt for workers*.

    *If there was any doubt…they’d have confirmed it

    I liked the football analogy, in the Sun, that Sam Allardyce lasted longer. 🤣

    Johnson declines to stand
    (what ministerial offer has he been given…foreign secretary again?)

    So Rishi Sunak it looks like it will be for new PM

    This will be the fourteenth prime minister I will have served under – and I’ve been poor under everyone of ’em.

    Much of the media makes headlines that he is the first UK/Asian PM.

    But not that he is the umpteenth elite public school PM Or that he is the umpteenth millionaire to be PM…

    A typical Tory PM

    “This will be the fourteenth prime minister I will have served under – and I’ve been poor under everyone of ’em.”

    Sounds as if you must be a pensioner yourself. 14? I make that back to Anthony Eden who quit in 1957 (I think).
