    Still 3 & a half years till the next election & Boris could whip out his cock in the Commons & piss on his backbenchers & they'd still vote against a no confidence motion.

    Yes but what if he does something they don't like?

    If it ever looks like they'll lose the next election though, they'll replace him with somebody new. And then they'll spout their usual abuser "we know we did all those nasty things before and hurt you, but it'll be different this time and at least we're not socialists" patter

    There is zero chance Boris goes to 2024. The knives have been quietly sharpening for the last few months, and he doesn't look like he's enjoying it. I've said it before but it'll come down to Sunak vs Gove, perhaps with Hunt deciding he fancies another go.

    My bet is Gove.

    I have interacted with him a fair bit in my new job and it really is a toss up between him and the chancellor for the 2# in terms of power.

    I think if it's Gove their chances in a general election are poor.

    Sunak would be very hard to beat though. He must be the most popular British politician of the last 10 years.

    sunak's low key smashing it i reckon

    facts aside, optics seem to be he's young and fairly fresh from shite, furlough was popular, presentable etc etc

    probably tortures kittens in his spare time or something, but the daily hate comments are full of praise for him and that's despite him not being white.

    He's popular at the moment because he's doling out the readies. Everyone's popular when they're flashing the cash.

    The shine's coming off though - witness him telling the entire arts sector to get new jobs, then realise he's going to have to repeat that ad nauseum when Brexit hits.

    He's one of the brexit believers which is a bit weird. Obsessed with freeports

    I see Johnson's unveiled his new Covid strategy, or as I call it, tiers of a clown.

    Does it actually achieve anything or is it government nonsense?

    the 'aim' is to standardise local lockdowns, ie so you know what's a tier 1/2/3 (although 3 is a bit floaty)

    helpfully, rather than green/orange/red or good/medium/bad it's called medium/high/very high

    and i imagine it'll be given the same comms push as the previous few months of changes have been, ie raised a few times and then quietly forgotten.

    Anyway, Lark having a siezure aside:

    (13th October) Covid: Sage scientists called for short lockdown weeks ago
    The government's scientific advisers called for a short lockdown in England to halt the spread of Covid-19 last month, newly released documents show.

    The experts said an immediate "circuit breaker" was the best way to control cases, at a meeting on 21 September.

    Labour called the document "alarming" but No 10 says it took "robust" action.

    It comes as the Liverpool region prepares to enter a "very high" Covid alert level from Wednesday, the highest of a new three-tier system.
    I like how dithering for weeks is described as "robust action".
    I've made a note as this may come in handy for future steerco etc usage.

    UK gov listening to advice and taking robust action, even if the robust action is to disregard the advice!

    We must do what the virus least expects us to in order to maintain the element of surprise.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    I guess that's also why communication seems to bad; it's actually compartmentalisation.
    If the virus compromises one group, the wider plan is not put at risk!

    Cunning.
