    Stabbed in the back overnight by Michael Gove who had stood alongside
    Boris for the duration of the Brexit leave campaign and has now stated
    that "Boris is not good enough to lead the country but I am" and thrown
    his hat in the ring. MG recently stated publicly on national TV that he
    himself lacked the qualities needed to be Prime Minister ! WTF ?

    One mighty force anyway - Mrs Gove apparently Cic. The couple have been described in the Guardian as Lord and Lady McGove, with Mrs Gove (Ms Vine) being cast as Lady Macbeth.

    Others are suggesting that the Goves had this stitched up long ago, and that the Brexit shenanigans were a pretext for the Tories to have a gory leadership battle. Given that both Cameron and Johnson were old Bullingdon Club members it looks as though they are following the Club tradition - select a business (e.g. a restaurant), go in and smash the place up, then flee and leave others to clean up the mess. Given that the leaders of both the Leave and Remain camps were Bullies and both have left others to clean up the shambles they have left behind, this seems a feasible scenario!

    Seriously, I doubt you are going to get your fervent wish, given that the Leave leaders are all trying to back pedal as fast as they can on issues related to both immigration and sovereignty - "Oh well, we didn't mean what we said". Lovely types all.

    Seriously, have you watched Gove on TV. I think that our glorious Labour Party leader has got about twice Goves charisma level. And lets face it Andrew Little has bugger all charisma!!

    I bet Gove has a handshake like a wet sock full of cold porridge!

    Just my thoughts

    I say there is something afoot, if 17000000 people vote for it and somehow be ignored, then one must wonder at the dark side.

    BoJo may as well wait it out now, then strike once the exit is sorted
    and Britain has seceded from the European Disunion.

    BoJo for P.M. in four years or so?

    Interesting times, indeed.

    It was ever thus. The minority of the wealthy has always ruled England, and that is the way the English seem to like it. The descendants of the few Norman knights that arrived in 1066 still own the place and still take no notice of the hoi polloi. Just look at the prominent movers in this shemozzle - public school oiks and their forelock tugging vassals. I wouldn't give a fig for the chances of the voting majority - democracy has always been smoke and mirrors in England.
