"Boris Johnson is taking over the Conservative party like a gangster taking over a crime syndicate... Yet step back and you see a weak man posing as a tough guy." #QotD


"Boris Johnson is taking over the Conservative party like a gangster taking over a crime syndicate...
    "Don’t let ideological labels mystify you. 'Remainer,' 'Leaver,' 'no dealer' – these are just words to confuse the credulous and stop them seeing their country clearly. Power is the only word that need concern you. Power, rather than ideology, is what runs together resignations and sackings...
    "I have never believed the media wisdom that 'the thing about Boris is that he just wants to be loved.' As an old journalist once told me, the one thing everyone says about a public figure is invariably wrong. So it has proved with Johnson.
    "He does not want to be loved. He wants to dominate and to command: he wants to be obeyed...
    "Yet step back and you see a weak man posing as a tough guy. He has a nominal parliamentary majority of three and falling. He has become Tory party leader by making promises which are impossible to meet ..."

          ~ Nick Cohen, in his op-ed 'Boris is a weak man posing as a tough guy'

  1. Spot on. As reported, Boris’ lifelong ambition has been to be “world king”.

  2. I bet Nick Cohen is a Remainer. Boris, doesn't have much in the way of ideology and firm commitments, but UK is lost to immigration anyway.
    If he can get out of the Eu good show, if he can't, a wretched ending like May and that ponce looking Cameron.

    1. Excatly. This is just a frothing remainer saying anything to discredit a PM who just might take us out.

  3. PC. As suspected that hack Cohen writes junk for the socialist Guardian. One of the lowest forms of enterprise in the Northern hemisphere.
