Boris’s first moves already look bad

There were various comments on Delingpole’s Breitbart article about what Boris’s first moves should be.

Regrettably, he’s thinking of installing a Pakistani Muslim as Chancellor, the same one who acted towards Tommy Robinson the way he did.

Then why did Johnson lambast Khan, telling him to resign and mooting getting rid of him?  Because it’s all talk.

What would one Muslim do which another wouldn’t?  They are both governed by a higher power and do as they’re instructed by the Imams, that power is neither the British people nor the Christian God.

Johnson thinks playing the appeaser works. It does not work, they undermine him from within, as the Donald discovered.  You can’t appoint a Romney or Halley, expecting loyalty to the platform you were elected on. You can’t ignore the Muslim issue which every single person of sentience in the country is fully aware of.

Rotherham and Telford will not go away, Plod are complicit. The media is bought.

If he feels this:

… then why on earth Javid?

As for Gove – oh he’ll really go down well out in the provinces, won’t he?

As someone with one vote only – as distinct from the hordes of postal voters – my single, precarious vote is not at this point going to the Johnson Party.

True coalition with the BP and DUP?  Vote for that? Maybe but I don’t trust Johnson as far as I could kick him – he does not like Farage and wants to keep him out of any power by whatever means, just as with all the other High Tories – they’re the ones born to rule, not Nigel Uppity Farage.

What it’s very much looking like is a cynical exercise in Tory damage control and they do it well, let’s give them that.  On the strength of the Boris bounce, the feeling which you detected around the political social media, plus so many placatory promises from his mouth, most people I know feel like ‘giving him a chance’ until Oct 31.

But if he can have the party trigger a major crisis in that time, he’ll throw up his hands, Donald style, and go to the people during the honeymoon phase.

He won’t do it after Oct 31, what would be the point?  If he’s ever going to get the BP on the backfoot, now that many of the defecting Tories are thinking of going back, this is the time, right now.

Mid to late September GE?

And if that happens and they thereby effectively shut the BP out and in particular, Farage, then the reality is 5 more whole years of appeaser Tory govt, they breathe a sigh of relief that the danger is over, everything’s as it was and all is well again.

Meanwhile, billions are quietly slipped to the EU to hold them off.

Farage and the BP can then shout and holler all they like – 5 years of govt with no recall system in the UK is 5 whole years of govt – there it is.

And my one vote?  If he calls before Oct 31, then it goes to the BP, no question.  If he calls after, then it depends what the situation is. Tommy? For Britain?  UKIP?  Coalition with the Tories?

    And there it is –

    The whole aim of Boris is to keep the Tories in power and shut out conservatives who honour promises.

    Its a good job Javid isn’t a Catholic or he could kiss goodbye to any plans / opportunities to be Chancellor or PM. Catholics are forbidden by Law. Specific to them.

    Making Javid Chancellor seems insane, but holding back on “wrong” until I see some Speccie etc reasons.

    However, keeping Claire “Green Shill” Perry who said she’d resign if Boris won Is idiotic.

    Is harridan Rudd gone?

    imo Cummings = good. Civil service and EU fearful of him.

    Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt described the Irish Backstop as ‘dead’ in its current form, so the new PM should be interested in this:

    The [NI] Backstop Would Wreck the Good Friday Agreement

    Informative. I’ve said all along that BA/GFA makes no reference to trade, EU, tax, border, customs… and is an invented fantasy obstacle

    .
    Hmm, Leavers are knuckle draggers? Really? Does she work for BBC?

    Rudd’s still there. Not looking good.

      Rudd is inside the tent, pissing out.
      She is kept in an area where she is not involved in setting the major policy direction and as Boris goes round the Cabinet table asking for contributions she is likely to fall in with those, like Raab and Patel who have spoken earlier. If Javid takes the same line as those two then any discussion is effectively over. And Javid is not going to oppose a new leader who got very nearly 2/3 of the members’ votes in the leadership election. We can expect Rudd to follow because she started shifting her position on No Deal in a TV interview a couple of weeks ago, almost certainly because she enjoys the trappings of office more than holding to her principles.

      As well as that, Rudd is providing cover for Boris who can claim that he is being inclusive of all wings in his party.
      And if she ever resigns she risks it being portrayed as ‘flouncing out’.

      Keeping Rudd in is a master stroke of political tactics.

    Same bed same stinking mattress changing the sheets will do little, its all a game to keep the conservatives in power, those bed bugs and ticks that infest Parliament. To me freedom for Julian Assange and Tommy Robinson will be real examples of a Just and proud Society.

    In his first address to the Nation as PM his first disappointment for me was mentioning inclusivity regarding “LBGT”. Why bring sexual orientation into politics? smh

      …and “Fibre broadband for everyone”

      F Off, not Gov’t function. BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Virgin, Vodafone (inc C&W) etc will provide what customers willing to pay for.

      Fingers crossed it was rhetoric.

    Javid – a Thatcherite: he’s an ex very successful banker and with luck will run UK as a profit making business.
