Big day for Boris.
Interesting piece on Johnson’s changing politics
Borrowed from a Guardian btl comment
So, Leadsom, lying then, or lying now?
She was probably lying both times. At least when she was lying in 2013 (who was even asking the question then?) her lie happened to be the the truth, but that doesn't mean she wasn't lying when she said it.

Are all these candidates still getting their Parliamentary salary?
None of them are doing any Parliamentary work,
the entire leadership election is clearly for the Tory Party.

God, this is all so depressing... We're beyond fucked.
There are continents abroad? Who knew?
In Yes Prime Minister Jim finally gets elected by defending the British sausage.
What I reckon is Boris swings wildly into view on a free tv licence for nearly deads bandwagon.
Yeah - it is. Comment deleted.
Well, if you're into hedgehogs its pretty comprehensive.
I've worked with a few ministers and people in government. The most important skill they need is being able to take a subject they know little or nothing about, absorb a briefing quickly and then ask the right questions to the officials that know the detail.
He probably crammed that whole speech in an evening. It might not have been word perfect, but I couldn't have done it.
The more I've seen Rory Stewart, the more impressed I've been. This LBC interview is the only time I've nodded along to someone advocating a soft brexit deal. I can see his point. I think he could be right. I certainly agree that a second referendum and remaining probably opens the door to the Farage Party even wider. I also agree that Europe will just roll their eyes when we come back to the table, much clout lost.
The biggest issue with him is that he's still a Tory - and therefore must be a cunt, which is hard to reconcile when he seems to have his head screwed on in other ways. Anyway, it matters not as it appears he's not got a hope in the leadership elections.
there is something of the... Innsmouth Look about him.
I saw some quite dismissive chat about the set of policies he revealed yesterday (on his website apparently) but I haven't looked for myself. That said, I imagine he's provided more detail than the kind of vacuous soundbites that Johnson has just delivered (before running away after taking only 6 questions from the press).
Rory, would, shudder to think almost make me consider voting Tory. Obviously I won't, but still.
The most startling thing about that video are the comments.
I would place a bet on Rory Stewart being leader of the Tories. The one after whoever gets the job next. He could be the leader of the Tories after the next election when they are the third or fourth largest party in parliament.
Take a look at his voting record
That will fix your dilemma
