Something to do with a laptop, some shouting about "get off my laptop", spilt wine and an upset woman.

Sounds like he was knocking a cheeky one out when she surprised him. Can't blame him, he's so close now the excitement was probably too much.

Regarding last night's domestic, well, it's just Boris being 'colourful' :wink:

The decision is to be made by the foot-soldiers of the PurgaTory army, mostly white, middle class*, middle aged
A demographic similar to the members of these fora, I fear :wink:

* Upper class, too?

atleast one person (Marina Hyde, not an ex?) dont rate Boris - or his entourage

Eventually, of course, Johnson himself will come for us all. He’s really the Tories’ Papa Lazarou, with his grotesque circus, his free-form gibberish, his expanding collection of wedding rings. And the rest. AND THE REST.

Certainly given his very publicised row with his girlfriend, it casts doubt on the judgement of the 160 or so MPs who voted for him? Thats collosal given its about 1/2 the parliamentary tory party with unsound judgement? ( Labour must be smirking )

We'll all be his wife soon. Should the rascal come knocking on your door, pretending to canvas for your vote but calling you Dave and asking to use your toilet ..... you know what to do! Or rather, what not to do.

Please to start a discussion about copyright/Urheberrecht Cugel, do you know all about that too?

I read the Grauniad report about the Incident at BoJo Towers, the house shook and the neighbours were woken, the cops came by but did nothing after receiving verbal assurances

Who might be the next First Lady?

Perhaps he will do what Donald Duck did, and use a good looking Eastern European to strut her stuff?

I'm sure Emperor Brexitus Nero Johnson won't give a toss about double-standards.

Surely, if Boris does get the job, she'd be known as the latest lady. :lol:

Dear lord the philandering buffoon was spotted in Bicester earlier with our Tory MP toadying up to him. In a bakery, no less. I expect that have him a right cream horn.

This joke perfectly summarises what is going to happen in the final Tory leadership vote:
