"Replacing Boris would be a terrific gamble”: The perils of Tory leadership contests | Red Box

  • Published on Jan 19, 2022
  • As the Tories limber up for a potential leadership contest, the ghosts of elections past loom large in their collective memory. Can Boris Johnson survive? Are Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss making their ambitions a bit too obvious? And what pitfalls should any leader in waiting avoid? Michael Portillo voted in four Tory leadership elections as an MP and a cabinet minister. Then stood, and lost, in one. Now a safe distance from his life in politics, Times Red Box editor Patrick Maguire visited him a stone's throw from Parliament to hear his thoughts on contests past, present and future.

    Replacing Bojo or not I still wouldn’t trust any of them

      Someone said that “the leader of a nation is just as good as the people they lead” so may be we need to look at our mirrors a little more to understand why we have our current leaders. And please don’t say “I didn’t vote for any of these lot”, because that is part of the problem. People would rather sleep in their beds than go out to vote when it comes to it. And then vehemently complain about the results. And please don’t moan about our democracy not being representative enough. We still live in a fairly democratic country imperfect as its democracy may be.

      @Alex Anyone could do a better job. Problem for many folk is that they need a leader, they need a strongman, a hero, a saviour.. sad as it sounds. And let's not forget, many of those people are proud self sufficient go getters with a can do attitude and aspiration that oozes from their pours.

    I remember being sat watching Boris Johnson win the GE with my head in my hands. I genuinely don’t understand what people were expecting to happen 🤷🏾‍♂️ The tories lied through the entire campaign and won because of it. Now everyone’s like “woah! These people aren’t very nice”… 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️

      @I'm unity no what you have done is instead of having a reasonable debate you have tried to shut my argument down with an invalid argument, you said i watch msm which i dont, which msm do you think i watch? Bbc? Itv? I wouldnt watch them because i see them as being completely bias to the left, you then respond about me misspelling a word - is that the only bit of input you have to offer? Tell me why and how your socialist coo coo eutopia will work, i really want to know

      @Louie Budsworth nah, I've already exlained why you're wrong. Now I'm pointing out your illiteracy. If you can't even spell basic words, how can anyone care about your opinion? I don't feel personally attacked, I'm just aware that you have no idea what you're talking about.

    About boris when he said that he didn’t know he was ‘breaking the rules’. OF COURSE HE KNEW HE WAS BREAKING THEM . He announced of what was against the rules and what wasn’t. How ridiculous. He can’t even listen to his own rules

    Replacing Boris is not the answer as they all are cut from the same cloth..what needs to be done is weed out all the Tories and labour and time to give politics a clean up. And put the people in power for the people

      @Jim Bean I doubt the Labour party has much momentum before it collapses and makes way for a new party to replace it. Same goes for the tories quite frankly.
      However, past Labour leaders have been much better politicians than the circus they produce now.

    • Jim Bean
      Jim Bean 4 months ago

      @Mr Potatohead how was it different and how would any future elections be any different when they’ve still got the likes of Burgon, Rayner, Butler, Lammy, Ashworth, Sultanna, Whittome, Bell Ribeiro Addy, Gardiner etc representing them?

    • Mr Potatohead
      Mr Potatohead 4 months ago +3

      @Jim Bean This was different, Corbyn was just so pitiful and terrifying as a prospective PM with Diane Abbot as potential home secretary, that a ham sandwich could have won against him.

    To the tory MPs who have such short memories. Boris won you a vast majority. It wasn't the individual MPs nobody new the names of being elected for their magnetic personalities.
    Our state-run TV has been replaced by a TV-run state.
    With the Boris the easy target gone, the BeeB's next phase will see you all looking for work.

    "...to the dullard they don't".
    Sometimes I feel like I am the only person who wants a sensible, boring, predictable person as PM - not some kind of aspirant celebrity...
    If you were having a brain tumor removed, who would you prefer? Or even as the person piloting your flight? The dullard who checks everything, or the "maverick" who "wings" it?

      I'd just quite like someone who's had a real job before (Starmer fits the bill but it doesn't necessarily need to be him). I'm fed up of the endless tirade of career politicians claiming to empathise with ordinary people when their lavish political class lifestyle is all they've ever known.

    • Louie Budsworth
      Louie Budsworth 4 months ago +1

      @Me Again because he has returned to a more central labour? Why do you think labour has lost so much support of the working class? Its because they went way to far left, at least keir is trying to run a political partie, i still disagree with his politics but he makes a better leader then JC ever did

    We need someone of the gravitas and character of Thatcher. However I fear in modern politics they do not exist.

    Most of the rules were a joke anyway (including not being allowed to sit in a garden with others) and if you didn't break some of those then you're an unthinking sap who'd follow anything authority dictated

    This obsession with winning at all costs is exactly the problem. Boris Johnson has been chasing power all his life. Now he has it he doesn't know what to do with it. Desire is all well and good, but responsibilty is far more important and longer lasting.

    john christmas 4 months ago

    I have just watched a video of Johnsons ex girl friend. In it she was not a bit vindictive but talking matter of factly, saying that he had no moral compass and was driven by ambition.
    This, it seems is self evident. But like Sam Farrow says I would not trust any of them, especially 2/3rds thought he was ok. So vote Tory next time? I don't think so.

    It seems to me Boris should go, not many people trust the Government. Those who back the PM are afraid do loose their overpaid jobs.

    If we had a decent opposition the tories would have jettisoned Boris as soon as he admitted attending lockdown "work events".

      They dont mind. It's killing hundreds of working class each and every week. As Javid said 'The job is almost done, by that he means 'we the Tories have successfully killed more people than we killed with austerity'
