    He's been beyond a joke for a very long time.

    Not seeing anything different to the sort of performance given when he was Mayor of London, and he was still voted into office,

    When he is being driven around by his carers do you think he sits in the back and makes those car noises?

    Can't disagree with that, but who are the alternatives?

    Somewhere in my solicitors safe is an enduring power of attorney that can be activated if I can no longer manage my affairs, is there any chance that Buckingham Palace would find such powers in the British constitution and force a snap election?

    But is there a single statesman in the Tory party? They expelled the only two who might qualify. All that are left are the most wall-eyed brexteers.

    He's a disgrace to the office. Unless of course the job description includes Court Jester, in which case he fails as none of it is funny.
    Alternatively he could be "on the spectrum".

    Given that Bozo was elected because "He's the only man who can get the job done!", one wonders what it says about that job, and the people who thought that job needed doing, when the only man who can get it done turns out be a shambling incomprehensible twunt with the morals of a shithouse rat and the charm of a syphilitic chancre?

    That's a bit strong, but a pretty accurate assessment!

    For a moment there I read that as speculum... Oh, wait, maybe he is balancing on one...

    If the party can manage him for nearly another year and get some needed but possibly unpopular work done then a very good chap, untainted by Boris, becomes available ready to lead the Conservatives into the 2024 election. Alok Sharma. He would have nearly two years to prove himself. Sharma was a cabinet minister before taking up the COP26 job. He was an unlikely choice for the COP job but did well.

    My local MP got a pothole fixed outside my house. So I reckon she’d be in with a chance…. :)

    Do you live next door to her by any chance?

    Some commentators are saying that this is typical of Johnson, with his bumbling blustering style, but I thought he actually looked uncomfortable and embarrassed, whereas normally he has that stupid grin on his face when he "cocks up". There's also the possibility that the Tories don't mind too much about this as it means people are distracted from the vote on the NHS Bill last night and the fact that a huge number of MPs rebelled.
