    Boris says he will not undergo 'psychological transformation' so anyone who doesn't like narcissism and pathological lying best get used to it. Says he's looking ahead to his third term in the 'mid-2030s' so add delusions of grandeur to those psychological traits. Claims again that he has been given a renewed mandate via the confidence vote last month. But it's Boris, so at the same time as he's doing all this, it comes out that The Times are carrying a story saying he was planning to use a Tory donor's money to build a £150,000 tree house at Chequers for son Wilf, which was only scrapped due to police security concerns. I mean, where do you start? Maybe with the fact that Chequers is his summer home temporarily while he's Prime Minister., not somewhere to build a permanent tree house for his child. Or the fact that £150,000 is needed to buy an actual house in most of the country. Or the fact that it's yet another story about a Tory donor paying for Boris's extravagant lifestyle choices. Or the endless questions it raises about what this Tory donor expected to gain from the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in exchange for his generation donation. Or WHY THE FUCK NONE OF THIS SEEMS TO MATTER TO BORIS JOHNSON?!

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    Indeed, it all started with Merrick Garland. Wonder how many Bernie fans out there are regretting their refusal to back Clinton in 2016. Perfect? No, but compared to Trump with a liberal majority on the line? Suicide. Garland confirmed, Ginsburg dies or retires, that's 5 liberal justices whether Kennedy retired or not (the Democrats wouldn't have pushed him out the way the Republicans did). 6-3 Conservative now, likely to only lose Clarence Thomas in the next decade or so on the Conservative side and Stephen Breyer is the only other Justice left from pre-2000. Could be at least another 50 years until this is reversed.

    Yeah, but it's really difficult getting Is and 1s the right way round...

    I really don't understand how any reading of the Bible gets you to a place where you force women to give birth against their will and refuse to contemplate any measures to stop the slaughter of innocent children.

    Boris and May could break both those records. But Theresa is an excellent local MP by all accounts and has called Johnson out plenty since leaving office. I suspect she could survive a Lib Dem wave, but sometimes there can be surprise casualties if the winds of change are powerful enough.

    John Curtice said this morning what will really be worrying the Tories is that Labour voters seem much more willing to vote tactically than previously. That could explain the mood music in these Lib Dem-threatened Tory heartlands. Part of me wants Johnson to hang on and become the first PM in living history (ever?) to lose his seat in a General Election.

    So I was wrong! A 24,000 majority turned into a loss by 6,000 - that's not even that marginal (accepting the fact lots of Tories stayed home and turnout was low). Amused me to see Dowden resign and say "someone has to take responsibility". How many people is that now who have resigned to save the blond narcissist? Chris Mason has noted that nowhere in his resignation letter does he back Johnson, he's remaining silent when asked and the 1922 Committee are getting antsy...

    Saying this now at nearly 1am with the counts underway but no results yet that I think they'll lose Wakefield but hold on to Tiverton and Honiton narrowly. Hope I'll be proved wrong but never doubt the shy Tories.

    I simply refuse to accept that David Cameron or Boris Johnson are more deserving of high public office than Gordon Brown, Keir Starmer or even Ed Miliband. I become more and more convinced that this country does, in fact, get the government it deserves. If they're going to keep voting for them, well good luck to them.

    Post-Partygate, he has reneged on an international agreement he signed barely 2 years ago, been told his Rwanda is morally reprehensible and also possibly illegal (but won't wait to find out before enacting it) and has seen his ethics adviser quit citing his readiness to break the Ministerial code over trade policy. Four more years!

    Alright, I'll bite. Is it me or does he look bloated in this picture...?
