Couldn't resist something about BoJo, but not simply for the sake of it.
We all know that he is a buffoon of sorts , or at least has cultivated such an image, and that he bumbkes his through things but what we need right now is leadership NOT attention to detail , save perhaps for Brexit.
Boris ran London very successfully on all fronts to the best of my knowledge from here , up North . BUT and it is a BIg "but" does it mean he can run the country.Theresa May ran the Home Office or whatever it's called these days, and given that her tenure was somewhat longer than average we can assume she was a steady and safe paid of hands. BUT she was totally incapable of running the country as it takes a different skills set, the main one being a warm personality and she was as cold as a recently landed trout. Somehow nobody saw this.
Boris has the personality and the required vision but does he have people's trust, both in the electorate and in his party ? I honestly don't know, so it's just as well I am not a card carrying member of the Tory party.
PS - Jsut for the record. I beleive the F" business furore is a non-starter given his history in London . I interpret it to mean that he can't have CBI or whoever bleating on and on to run the agenda and is was typical Boris , bit like Trump actually. But let's not go there....
