lets just remember in regards to the Tory leader contest once it goes out to Tory party members to vote that:

0.25 % of the population (i.e. total of tory party members) 81% of whom did not vote conservative* in the European elections will vote in the next prime minister

* they voted for Brexit party

When I read your post, I thought that you may be serious. I didn't know that Boris had a sister. I looked her up on wikki. Now I know that you were joking - a sick joke perhaps, but how crass is this nation becoming?

No, I was thinking about Rachel Johnson. I find her insights informative. Why might I be joking about that, or thinking about someone completely different?

Yes Rachel is seriously cool, but she wouldn't make such a convincing BoJo doppleganger anywhere near good as JoJo :wink:

Jo just needs to pad his shirt out a bit, puff-out his cheeks, and learn to walk like a gorilla...

Yes - that's the question - and the worry.


You mean like SIr Keith Joseph and Mrs Thatcher? Farage via Trump probably.

If that top button goes, there'll be scenes of wild disorder.
According to the Sun website, she bared all on TV on Sky...........just Rupert Murdoc's level, innit.
As I said above, I didn't know she existed until I followed up 'bonefishblues's' post (above) and found details I didn't ask for on her 'wikki' entry.

We may joke and leer about these things, but seriously, are people of their calibre fit to lead a country? - are they fit to lead us?
It's frightening. Boris may be less harm renting out bikes......................

Watching Celebrity Gogglebox, which had a bit about the late night channel 4 show Naked Attraction, a bit like Blind Date but without clothes. They were referring to Male Private Parts as Johnsons. Is there a connection here?

Methinks you might be exaggerating but out of interest how's project: "it's all going to be rosy" coming along?

Obviously in both cases we've yet to leave and leavers do have the majority of economists on their side - except they don't; but they do have Farrage, Johnston and that guy that moved his vacuum cleaner factory out of the UK when we didn't join the Euro telling them how great it's going to be.

The really worrying thing is ..... there is probably a huge number of people desperately hoping that leaving will be a massive disaster ... just so they can say "told you so" ..... and who will be eaten up with anger and angst if its a success ..... which is sad .. :(

Part of "project fear" was pointing out that leaving wasn't the trivial exercise leavers were being sold and that was before we realised the population would be split pretty much down the middle.

My view is I might as well sit back and enjoy the spectacle, once you mentally move outside of it then it's both amusing and fascinating.
The best thing that can come of it in my opinion is the disintegration of the two main parties.
