Boris as PM would be Britain’s Trump
It’s frightening that at a time when Britain needs a steady hand to guide it through the murky waters of Brexit, a pirate called Boris Johnson is planning to take the helm.
There can be no question he was the worst Foreign Secretary in recent history and his Brexit lies about the NHS have been laid bare. He recently compared Muslim women wearing burkas to letter boxes and now he likens the PM’s Brexit plans to a suicide bomber.
We have also heard about his treacherous private life, betraying his long-suffering wife. If Johnson ever becomes PM we will be heading for Davy Jones’ locker! Time the Tories made him walk the plank as he is unfit to be an MP, let alone a PM.

Boris Johnson has sunk to the politics of the gutter with his latest outburst. Not content to have low morals in his private life, he has now launched an attack on Theresa May using language more associated with demagogues. It seems there is no depth this vain and ignorant man will not sink to in his quest to become Prime Minister of this country. If he genuinely had the needs and interests of the country at heart and not his own personal agenda he would shut up and work with the Government to get a good deal on Brexit.

A new day and Boris Johnson plunges to a new low. As a Londoner I’m only surprised it has taken the rest of the country so long to discover the truth of who he really is.
His legacy as Mayor of London was to commit £37million of taxpayer’s money to support a white elephant Garden Bridge project.
And he wants to be Prime Minister?

In Saturday’s paper, Jason Beattie asked if a serial womaniser and cheat could be trusted to keep his political promises?
But in my view, Boris is untrustworthy, not because of his private life, but because as a Tory politician he believes he was born to rule.
The Tories have always lied to the working class voters who never seem to learn.
This is the worst Government this country has ever known and the Tories will probably be re-elected on another bed of lies. God help us.

I have to ask, is Boris the Etoneducated version of American President Donald Trump?
After all, it appears they have striking similarities. Both constantly spout rubbish and are dogged by allegations of infidelity while being totally in love with

Like President Trump, Boris Johnson represents toxic politics, but if Trump can be President anything can happen, unfortunately. I wouldn’t be surprised if Boris was the next Prime Minister.

So, Boris Johnson’s wife, Marina, is reportedly divorcing him after he allegedly had an affair with a parliamentary aide. I wonder whether that will be a hard or soft exit?
