Boris Johnson has been Prime Minister from 24 July 2019 to the now. Some people adore him, some people loathe him, but how many now think that Jeremy Corbyn should have been Prime Minister, or are most people happy that Boris is in charge.
One great thing about Boris Johnson is that he doesn’t so much play his cards close to his chest as much as wave them around for all to see, and I can’t think of any reason why people backed Boris Johnson as Prime Minister, although those that did vote for him, knew precisely what they were voting for.
I mean, let’s face it, if people wanted a No Deal Brexit, they could have backed Esther McVey who was knocked out with nine votes, and Dominic Raab with thirty.
Conservative MPs who wanted to leave without a deal had safer options to secure than with Boris Johnson, but they elected him anyhow, even though every single Conservative MP backer of Boris Johnson knew he was going to disappoint them, but presumably, they thought it wouldn’t be one of them.
And they didn’t seem to mind that Boris Johnson told them different things behind different closed doors.
The thing about Boris Johnson is that he tells his voters what they want to hear, but what you really have is a guy standing on a platform with betrayal in his heart, and we can always be sure that he will deliver.
The problem with the puppet is that he really wants so much to believe that his relationship with his candidates is special – the trouble is he doesn’t roar the truth.
Boris Johnson would be excellent if only he was limited to the occasional appearance here and there because he really is an upper-class buffoon, although he does have enough sense of humour and self-awareness not to take himself too seriously, and he would be a rather entertaining chap to have a few drinks with.
But then he got himself into a position of authority and the nastier side of him began to appear. Self-centred and self-absorbed, ruthlessly ambitious and likely to turn his opinions on a sixpence to earn votes, relying massively on his sharp tongue to gibberish his way through.
He’s all show and no substance, and he speaks so well and so amusingly that many don’t stop and think ‘What are you on about Boris.’
Jeremy Corbyn is pretty likeable because he’s not from the same mould as most of the other parties. After all, other parties are usually part-time, self-serving and backstabbing, and the Conservatives are terrified of Jeremy Corbyn because he’s a genuinely amiable person who’s never in his political career done a backflip or played the same political games as they have.
People said he wasn’t Prime Minister material, but they said that about many great Labour leaders, for example, Clement Atlee and look how he did as Prime Minister and a model for all who came after him, but of course, none came even close because the establishment has become infected and infiltrated with establishment lackeys who just want an easy life and want to line their own pockets.
Jeremy Corbyn is a simple man, in that he’s lived in the same house as he’d done for numerous years and takes his politics seriously, and he would have been the best thing for the vast majority of the UK public since the passing of Margaret Thatcher.
And the establishment was right to be terrified of him because he would have no doubt been a real maverick if he were to have made it to No 10, and I would have looked forward to his leadership with glorious anticipation.
