Can’t believe no ones noticed

It’s immaterial really because he doesn’t ever want the job anyway so I don’t know why I brought it up, but I would take capability over likeabiliy any day of the week.
Yes that’s fine for us. But it’s getting folk to vote elsewhere that’s the problem. TM was not very appealing unless you are into that sort of thing

Rory Stewart has shown that he is no more than a wimp. He has declared that he would not serve under Boris as PM.

If he had any guts, he would willingly serve under Boris, simply to act as a moderator to try to keep him in check.

My favourite is Stephen Barclay - a Leaver with current Ministerial experience.
He's not a wimp . but he is an appeaser which is useless now , we need a decision maker .

We need a canny negotiator. It comes down to peoplle, trust and rapport. To get anything agreed whoever is prime minister is going to have to appear to appease even if they’re not.

But the chances of any agreement are very slim. So it's either No Deal or No Brexit.

My guess is that as No Deal is the legal default, that's what will happen. But of course much will depend on John Burcow and whether or not he wants to continue as the main decision maker and enhance his celebrity status.

As I see it "no deal" is the legal default with a new PM. Simply doesn't have to do anything before Oct 31st and Parliament couldn't stop it. Labour blocked the amendment that could have made No Brexit the legal default.

Theresa May was like a reformed alcoholic in her zeal for a hardish Brexit. Article 50 should never have been triggered until a workable long term implementation plan had been agreed by the cabinet and the EU. As it is, the UK is exactly no further forward than it was on the 24th June 2016, other than being considerably poorer and now generally realising that there are no simple solutions to complex problems. :banghead:
At a meeting of the Heads of Government of the other states in June 2016, leaders decided that they would not start any negotiation before the UK formally invoked Article 50. Consequently, the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, ordered all members of the EU Commission not to engage in any kind of contact with UK parties regarding Brexit.

''No Deal is the legal default'' is what I meant to say. :oops:

Leadsom for me ! I think the MPs will 'fix' it to stop Boris getting through the first rounds of voting. The only good thing about Gove getting through is that he will no longer be Environment minister ! Would be interesting ,if Boris did win through ,to see if he gave Gove a job in the cabinet after he stabbed him in the back last time !

Throughout British history, whenever we've had a crisis, "cometh the hour", always has "cometh the man".
Sadly, out of the bunch of losers, who call themselves MP's, I just can't see any man (or woman in these enlightened times) who has any of the qualities we need.

Whoever gets the job is going to be no more successful than May at getting any agreement. Nothing will have changed, only the PM.

We will be either in or out. If we're out it'll be a No Deal Brexit. IMHO, there can be no other solution. They've spent 3 years getting nowhere, from now October won't make one iota of difference whoever is PM.

Motivation in farming is a challenging subject to tackle.
