“We are the party of the people. We are the party of the many.”

Wow! To which I might add this: Delingpole: Boris’s Brexit Cabinet Is the Soundest Since Margaret Thatcher.

  1. Old School Conservative

    Best theatre ever.

  2. a reader

    British Parliament, even when it’s full of lefties and scum, is far more interesting and inspiring than the dross out of State Circle, Spring Street, North Terrace, George Street, Harvest Terrace, Salamanca Place and even Macquarie Street.

  3. Up The Workers!

    Whatever else may happen, the Poms are sure in for interesting times ahead, with Boris at the helm.

    That man could breathe life into a corpse…or even that comical Human Mung Bean, Jeremy Corbyn.

  4. Up The Workers!

    The caption on the photo above says:
    “Boris wipes the floor with Corbyn.”

    I wouldn’t advise doing that – not even on the floor of the House of Commons.

    You don’t know where Corbyn has been!

  5. 2dogs

    Jacob Rees-Mogg as leader of the house is magnificent.

  6. areff

    Yes, there’s something quite reassuring in seeing Rees-Mogg sitting behind Boris.

  7. Oh come on

    Colour me underwhelmed. What we saw was Boris attacking Jeremy Corbyn from the left using the NHS and the “living wage” as examples.

    Well, that’s reassuring.

  8. Crossie

    If Boris wants to reassure Brits that he means what he says and is not May then he can prove it by releasing Tommy Robinson. That would be a gesture of peace offering to free speech advocates and something he could do now rather than wait for the witching hour of 31st October.

    Parliament – all just words, I’m waiting for the deeds.

    Who honestly thought a woman could do that job with the same sort of gusto and fight.

    He’s entertaining but a soft left wet dickhead.

  13. The Left are going to hate Boris, because he’s increasingly reminding them of Trump. Just wait until Boris and the Donald meet. The Leftist idiots will be lining up to fill their flaccid blimp with farts.

    Oh noes, Corbyn called a vast protest of Boris and this happened….

    Corbyn fatigue: ABYSMAL turnout at anti-Boris rally as he puts Momentum on election alert

    Jeremy Corbyn spoke to a crowd of at least 300 people rallying against the Government in Parliament Square on Thursday. Images show protesters holding placards saying ‘No to racism, No to Boris Johnson’. However, the new Prime Minister has appointed more ethnic minority politicians to his Cabinet than any other leader in the country in history.

    Huuuge! The photos are fun because the apparatchiks picked a nice big site they could fill up with the hordes and hordes of Boris-hating voters that were sure to turn up.

  15. Tator

    One thing I noticed in that clip was how much flair the Speaker of the House had in comparison to every speaker in Australian Parliament. Denizens of the House.
    As for Boris, he is definitely not a book that can be judged by his cover. Many think he is an absolute buffoon of a toff, but watching him there in full rhetorical flight shows that he is definitely a political wolf in sheep’s clothing and a force in Parliament.

    Corbyn might think that his sh*t doesn’t stink, but his anti-British, pro-terrorist Mung-Bean policy farts give him away every time.

    Johnson is a bumbling phony and this faux-passionate, rambling recitation of bullet-points proves it.

  21. egg_

    Looks like Boris has Prince Harry’s old haircut.

    How long till he drives a cuckmobile – oh, wait…

  22. It appears that the Left is taking a break from Trump and thrusting their vitriol at Johnson, clearly hoping to divert attention from the Mueller/Democrat comedy festival (or is it comedy of errors festival?).

  23. Roger

    The Left are going to hate Boris, because he’s increasingly reminding them of Trump.

    Boris is of the Left, he’s a Red Tory; this is an internecine conflict.

    correct
    people who call themselves today: liberals, republicans or Conservative by standards of 1850 will be fabian socialist.

  25. Having watched Boris in various debates and interviews, I believe he is fiscally conservative about 0.1 basis points to the right with a margin of error of +/- 2 basis points, and he is socially to the left about 4 basis points +/- 1 margin of error.

    What?

    Can you elaborate on this further? I don’t see what conservatives or liberals in 1850 have in common at all with Fabian socialists.

  28. Boris is of the Left, he’s a Red Tory; this is an internecine conflict.

    How about we wait and see, rather than count the chicken before they are hatched.

    That said, I prefer to listen to James Delingpole than doomsayers: https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2019/07/ministers-of-sound-why-this-is-the-best-cabinet-for-years/.

    lol @ the british commons where the low testosterone Corbyn is flanked by his masculine Big Buck african handlers.

    The most cuckiest country on earth!

  30. Roger

    How about we wait and see, rather than count the chicken before they are hatched.

    I’m not suggesting his government may not introduce some beneficial reforms, including Brexit; indeed, the future of his government depends on devivering Brexit. But all that will be because his ministers are more capable than he is.

    I’m identifying where he sits on the political philosophical spectrum. An apple tree can only produce apples. Unlike Trump, I suggest Boris will not attempt to fundamentally alter the Leftwards course the UK has been on for generations, he will only move the deck chairs around. A good example is his immigration policy – prospective migrants will have to have a job lined up and speak English. A good start; but at the same time he has proposed asylum for half a million illegal immigrants and promised to remove May’s immigration cap.

  31. twostix

    Chesterton noted that the British empire would end up having britain being overwhelmed by its empire.

    Imperialism is a death sentence for the future of a people and America is in the midst of the same fate!

  32. J.H.

    *facepalm*…. The Conservative party proudly arguing about being a shill for the NHS, the Living Wage and the Welfare state… sigh.

    … It’s good theater by Boris, but it is telling that so much of liberal politics has been captured, tortured and twisted towards Socialism. The Zombies of the political class shuffling and moaning as they search out the brains of the ignorant.

    Anyway. You have one job Boris. Deliver Brexit….. So deliver it you had better.

  33. Frank Walker from National Tiles

    Brexit
    Cut taxes
    Cut spending
    Abolish counterproductive & authoritarian regulation & bureaucracy

    It’s not that hard, Boris.

  34. Lee

    Even if true, the alternative of the anti-Semitic commo doesn’t bear thinking about.

    Funny how leftists are very quick to accuse conservatives and right wingers of being anti-Semitic, based on very little or zero evidence (such as PDT, who has Jewish relatives, including grandchildren, and is a great supporter of Israel. Someone even accused Andrew Bolt of it – for Pete’s sake – because he was critical of George Soros!), but ignore true and proudly self-proclaimed anti-Semitics in their own ranks like the repellent Corbyn, and Ilhan Omar.

  35. egg_

    Flanked by femme swarthies – modern London?

    promised to remove May’s immigration cap.

    Ponzi?

  37. But all that will be because his ministers are more capable than he is.

    A smart leader picks even smarter and capable staff, but they make certain that those staff are on their side.

    A good start; but at the same time he has proposed asylum for half a million illegal immigrants and promised to remove May’s immigration cap.

    Even Trump was prepared to grant asylum for the millions of illegals, but the Democrats have refused to negotiate.

    Frank people who call themselves today: liberals, republicans or Conservative are not much different than people who call themselves fabian socialist.

    they are both socialist, they stand for same thinks:

    Fabian views:

    Fabians lobbied for the introduction of a minimum wage.
    Fabians lobbied for the creation of a universal health care system
    Fabians were in favour of a welfare state modelled on the Bismarckian German model.

    nationalisation of key industries

    parliament will make law specifying the working hour, wages of the labourer, amount of profit and other details which the industries must strictly follow.

    Fabians were going to create a just society: the beginning of a welfare state, cheap council housing, free medicine and dental treatment, free spectacles, generous unemployment benefits…

    for all this you need central bank and fiat money inflation

    Indeed there is, Carruthers.

    I may have been too harsh in early assessments of the BoJo. Magnificent feisty stuff.

  40. Frank Walker from National Tiles

    Okay, I get your point, max but I am a libertarian or classical liberal and can see how US constitutional conservatism is concomitant with my values.

    I’m nothing like that.

  41. BorisG

    But all that will be because his ministers are more capable than he is.

    Well then he should be given all the credit as it is him who appointed them in the first place.

  42. Frank Walker from National Tiles

    “I am nothing like the faux conservatives you describe…”

  43. BorisG

    Even if true, the alternative of the anti-Semitic commo doesn’t bear thinking about.

    Sure but That is a very low bar, and far cry from being best PM since Thatcher.

    Having said that, I would like to see what unfolds. The stakes are high and even if BJ is a Superman, it may not be enough. If he overcomes the challenge of delivering Brexit without causing a major terrorist upheaval in Northern Ireland, he will be revered for decades. If he fails, Corbin will be the least worry for the UK.

    One thing is clear: Brexit referendum has caused the UK to tear itself apart.

  44. BorisG

    Who honestly thought a woman could do that job with the same sort of gusto and fight.

    Thatcher did that and also had the substance.

  45. Thatcher did that and also had the substance.

    Something the Left ignores. I think May in her departing speech said something about her proving that a woman can aspire to and become PM, sounding as if she had no idea that Margaret Thatcher ever existed.

  46. Tel

    One thing is clear: Brexit referendum has caused the UK to tear itself apart.

    That’s backwards … the UK has been slowly tearing apart since the 1950’s and they tried to join the EU as an alternative option, but this too is coming apart at the seams. Brexit is merely a continuation of that process, likely with a break from Scotland at some point.

  47. a reader

    In the UK Commonwealth citizens who live in the UK are eligible for election. If I was Boris I’d be asking John Key, Bill English and Stephen Harper wouldn’t mind living in the UK for the next decade or so and getting them in safe seats

  48. Up The Workers!

    Somehow I just cannot see Corbyn as the stereotypical vile anti-Semitic racist bigot he is said to be.

    How do you do an effective jack-booted Goose-Step March whilst wearing socks and sandals?

  49. BorisG

    “Somehow I just cannot see Corbyn as the stereotypical vile anti-Semitic racist bigot he is said to be.”

    Even if he is not, he is clearly a communist. Which is more than sufficient reason to vote for anyone but his party.
