Ironically, the only Brexit Bonus is schadenfreude.

With such a plethora of inept, deceitful chancers in The Cabinet, I don't know who will replace him.

Apparently a gang is waiting for him at Number 10.

 

I've just filled out the online form to register to vote in the UK. If there's a snap general election, then I'm probably too late anyway, but I thought given the high chance of an election some time soon I may as well.

Apparently, Boris went to bed last night after a few party gate beers that were left over from party gate and planning to appoint more perverts to government, singing  "I Will Survive" by " Gloria Gaynor".

 

But this morning, has woken up with a sore head and has decided to bugger off, I support him in his decision, which is about the only thing I agreed with him on.

 

Suddenly the world looks a lot better place, with Trump and Boris gone, maybe now the UK can build a better relationship with the EU.  

 

Still think it should have been written on that bus.

Good luck with that. I think his successor is likely one of the Brexit-ultras who will make things worse. Steve Baker says he'll be a candidate.

This is from sky about the runners and riders, Steve Baker it would seem is well down the list

 

Penny Mordaunt and Rishi Sunak favourites to replace Boris Johnson

Former chancellor Rishi Sunak and trade policy minister Penny Mordaunt are leading the odds to replace Boris Johnson as Conservative leader.

These are the Sky Bet odds for the next Tory leader:

Penny Mordaunt 9/2

Rishi Sunak 9/2

Ben Wallace 6/1

Liz Truss 8/1

Sajid Javid 8/1

Nadhim Zahawi 9/1

Jeremy Hunt 10/1

Tom Tugendhat 12/1

Michael Gove 16/1

Steve Baker 18/1

Ms Mordaunt, who is arguably less well-known than the others, has continually been at or near the top of the list over the past year.

Boris still angling to stay on as caretaker.    One funny thing is, the MPs who accepted ministerial positions in the last couple of days, and have now resigned, appear to be eligible for the enhanced salary for 3 months.   I am sure they will, out of  decency, refuse these extra payments.

I doubt it - if its one thing they are all united on is "getting rid of the EU".  Labour also.
