Boris Johnson. Now there’s a name to conjure with.
He wants to be Prime Minister, again. This time by winning the public vote in the election on December 12. And he has a chance.
However, if he goes on being seen as he is here – on a visit to a crisp factory in Northern Ireland – he has to do better than play the fool. Which he is – on current form – good at doing.
He doesn’t even seem serious in Parliament, describing one MP’s remarks as ‘humbug’. And he has the temerity to prorogue Parliament whenever it suits him, and for as long as he deems fit.
Don’t vote for him.
Mind you, the alternative doesn’t look wonderful. Corbyn has the air of a misplaced schoolteacher; a man who would just about be at home in front of a roomful of 15-year-olds.
The answer, in my opinion, is either vote independent or vote for no one at all. In other words, DON’T VOTE.
