    I like that lady. Sadly the gammons are impervious to reason and truth, also, it wouldn't upset me if England never played another world cup.

    You can't reason someone away from a position/belief they didn't reason their way in to.

    Don't bring facts to a feelings fight.

    ...etc.

    So has Boris won any votes since becoming PM?

    I know in the past a government losing votes would've been seen as a reason for the PM to stand down but we're living through extraordinary times, just wonder if they're so extraordinary that we've now got a PM who's not managed to get any policies through parliament.

    So the very same people who tried to defend the decision to pull the vote on Saturday and threatened to pull it again today will now rage and scream about being punished for what they did on Saturday...

    ...am I jumping the gun Baldrick Boris or are the words 'I have a Cunning Cummings Plan' marching, with ill-deserved confidence, in the direction of this conversation?
