He also said something about animalsies. I didn't hear what, because live streaming kept crashing, but I trust Carrie. I loved her dress.
(I'm just trying to stay positive.)

So, do we think BoJo relishes the role of the last PM of the UK? Or is that just likely collateral damage arising from securing the role of England in the new world order? Not a very big role, mind you...

The thing is, we Brexiteers don’t care about the UK’s role in world affairs. To want to control other people or be controlled by them is a very leftie desire. Brexiteers merely want as few layers of “management” above or below them as possible. And what layers there are should be democratically chosen.

Alright, but why Ugli Patel? Or are we-Brexiters supporting death penalty?

"Democratically chosen" doesn't seem to fit a PM of a 66mln nation who got into Downing Street on the strength of less than 100,000 votes.

We vote for a party, not a President. You know that! (Anyway, am not a fan of democracy but my preferred option isn’t going to happen!)

Well, I guess a no-deal Brexit, a devolved Scotland, a reunited Ireland, (I don’t think people care much about Wales), and Singapore status for London should leave England proper needing relatively few layers of management. And they can all be Tories (of the right kind, not the moaning ones). Great again!

A devolved Scotland already happened.

I probably shouldn’t argue this matter with a Highlander... But a lot of areas of government were kept out of the first round of devolution, so there is room for lots more.

The important stuff for the unity of the UK is: defence, foreign policy, monetary policy and climate change policy.
