People compare BoJo with Trump, but IMHO a more apt comparison would be with Bill Clinton - both couldn't keep it in their pants: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7516443/American-model-Jennifer-Arcuri-told-friends-having-sexual-affair-Boris-Johnson.html

Boris has become a legend. He is photographed standing next to a woman so everyone assumes he is sleeping with her. Doesn't matter whether true or not. Legend! The same could not be said of Bill Clinton. He was often photographed standing next to Hillary.

It took 2.5 years of Trump's presidency for me to understand how anyone could sleep with Hillary Clinton.

That's not the issue.

So the issue is politicians paying large sums of money to their pals, then?

Let's hope they don't "lock him up".

There will be a lot of people upset if he gets a good deal for the UK. Most of them in the UK.

I'm still taking the under on that one. But maybe I'm underestimating the desperation in Brussels.

It's quite entertaining watching Boris Johnson crashing on the same rock as Theresa May did. People just don't learn.

Remainers need to start fundraising for a statue of Arlene Foster.

This is the same continuing story since 1801.

It's a funny election. If Labour had been headed by anybody but Corbyn, they would seem to be a shoo-in. As it is, you have a bunch of unelectable idiots running against each other. The best you can hope for is a hung Parliament. I guess you could hope for a LibDem government, but that doesn't seem reasonable.
