Nice one Pompui - BJ has plenty of detractors. The book is worth a read to get the full perspective. ATB

Boris Johnson took to Facebook Live to speak to us from Downing Street. It's good to see him engaging with us.

Alfie I wonder if this is to be regular BJ feature ?  Let's see how it goes - I hope it doesn't descend into the sort of chaos that Trump has wreaked in the USA with his Tweets  ::)

Come on BJ - head held high (ish) in the face of a tsunami of abuse both political and personal.

"Boris Johnson is unstoppable. Literally. His interviewers can’t get a word in edgeways. Because the man simply will not stop talking.

Quite plainly, it’s a deliberate and well-honed technique. Call it the juggernaut, because that’s what it’s like: the helpless interviewer is utterly drowned out by a vast onrushing juggernaut of bluster, 10 solid tons of thundering waffle. BLAM! At maximum speed the juggernaut roars straight through all obstacles, traffic cones scattered, crash barriers crushed, its driver hell-bent on just blasting on through, zooming away from whatever question he’s been asked by babbling out buzzwords and unrelated policy announcements for whole minutes on end, louder and faster, louder and faster, the interviewer now no more than a frantic dot in his rear-view mirror

Anyone listen to BJ in Parliament yesterday ?

I thought he performed very well and IMO, if we ever get an election and the Tories win, he will make an excellent Prime Minister and get things done in (hopefully) a positive post-Brexit era. Good to see his energy and competence  8)
