    I have to admit here that I got it wrong about Boris. I said that simply appointing someone like him as prime minister would not change the parliamentary arithmetic. Clearly it has!☺

    People were singing "Where's your brother gone" as well apparently.

    Well you got it wrong about the vote on Brexit night too. We're used to your errors when it comes to Brexit.

    Just give us a winner!

    First In Line 1.50 Haydock, Saturday

    Editor's Note: For the benefit of accuracy, while I haven't checked back, I believe what I did was highlight the fact that 'Remain' had gone way odds on on the evening of the count, which I celebrated! I wasn't the only one to have taken the wrong signal from this - Nigel Farage apparently retired to bed, disconsolate, only to be roused later when the results began to reveal the disastrous outcome for Britain!

    You'd have concerns for Johnson.

    Lost Brecon and Radnor by-election.
    Lost vote on the Benn Bill.
    Lost his majority.
    Lost the vote on calling an early GE.
    Lost the support of moderate Tories appalled by the sacking of party grandees.
    Lost the support of his own brother.

    His performance at the Police School yesterday was that of someone also losing the plot. Despite the supposedly inspired Machiavellian machinations of Cummings, he was placed in a setting which was totally inappropriate, turned up late and unprepared, appeared to many to have taken drink, and proceeded to make a speech which was rambling and incoherent, at one point embarrassingly ballsing up a recitation of the Police Caution.

    At present he is achieving the singular distinction of being out-manoeuvred by Jeremy Corbyn, who it must be admitted is playing his cards well.

    With so many dark arts being deployed, did he purposefully put in such a woeful performance to make opposition leaders vote for his GE motion on Monday?

    The Cummings playbook is go over the heads of everyone and straight to the target voters. Many won't have seen this, and many apologists will even say he's only human and must have had a hard day with his brother, blah blah.

    I think it was just a bumbling typical ill prepared selfish performance and his efforts so far show how inadequate he is as a statesman and leader. Whether his cabal and lemming supporters would see anything but their self fixed preset views, I doubt it.

    He will also lose his seat at the GE. First time this will ever have happened to a sitting PM (assuming he still is!). Watch this space.

    It was so bad as, others have said, that it's tempting to believe it's part of a cunning plan. Then again he's always been like this as a journo as an mp and as defense secretary. The best judge of future behavior is past behaviour.
