    The job should go to Rory Stewart IMO, he has a lot more intelligence, class and integrity to do the British people proud, much more than this total buffoon.

    Europe is sick of the UK. You can't blame them. And when we finally leave the E.U accept the consequences.

    I can't help wondering why he held back his new mandate, his new onus and his confidence back in 2016. Bluffing, bumbling Boris I do hope your turncoat party are setting you up for the almighty fall you deserve. what are you going to do after Brexit? did you not know you have a whole country to lead - including almost half of it that want to remain in the EU because they want to be part of a human race who understands that a divided humanity will eventually lose everything.

      Exactly... Unity is strength Looking forward to seeing all those brexit clowns joining the dole lines. And then crying " Oh god what have we done" You reap what you sow. Enjoy.

    We MUST NOT have a Muslim prime minister Sajid Navid. It would be suicide and the Muslim caliphate would be rubbing their hands with glee that Britain has succumbed to Islam. Muslim mayor and a Muslim prime minister. Game over for the British freedom loving people.

    If he becomes leader i think its the end of the union. I don't think he will cut the mustard in Scotland and i believe he looks/sounds/acts in a way that is distasteful to most of us up here!

      @Surfer7901 To be honest none of them suit me. I am no fan of the EU but it will be a better option for Scotland than remaining in the union. It is almost over.

      Do you think we could try to work to preserve It? Rory S. might suit you better I assume. But that's a little partisan. With Scotland (my home too) being only 10% of the population you sound rather biased. Get some perspective? You need UK success to fund the Scottish people which gets a VERY large share of my taxes.

      The current 'deal' as you say is a pile of poo. It is a treaty. It was made by Brussels FOR Brussels so they can keep our money and plough on, destroying our independance and laughing all the way to the European central bank. Boris, one hopes will tear it up like the old newspaper it is, and give the ruling elite of Europe something to chew on that they will end up swallowing.
      They will have to, or they will be starved of our business, and will end up "eating cake". - Boris for PM!!

      He certainly has. All the way from making racist comments about Muslims to...doubling down on making racist comments about Muslims in this speech, and demanding to be praised for his "blunt speaking". You can really see the life lessons that have been learned.

    'Treason May' followed by 'Betrayal Boris'.
    The great Conservative brexit betrayal unveils its self after 3 years.
    We know hes not prepared to leave. Parliament voted it down an he is a parliamentarian. He follows their votes more than he follows people's votes.
    He backtracked on Mays deal and that is all hes ever likely to entertain. He has no negotiating position to get anything better.
    A plan so obviously orchestrated.

The fact that he is endorsed by IDS who was possibly the worst Tory leader ever says it all!
