I think there are very few people left who believe that Corbyn would make a good PM but at least he's fundamentally honest and principled. Johnson is neither of those things. He's Trump Lite.

JC does have principles. Anti-Semitism and anti-European. He's been consistent on that for a number of years

:sigh:

He's not personally antisemitic but he does believe that Britain would be better off outside the EU - so he's anti-European in that sense, if you like.

I disagree with that but it's an honestly-held principle. Johnson has none.

I don't disagree that Johnson has no principles. He's consistently changed position over the years in his pursuit of power.

Now he has the big job and can blame no one but himself. It'll be interesting to see how long he lasts

I’m not one to defend Corbyn but there is a huge distinction between being anti-EU and anti-European.

I just hope for your sake that he doesn't appoint Ian Holloway as Chancellor - #dreamteam.
