Blessed Boris

Alas poor Boris.

He's out of his depth.

He lives under a mushroom.

His mind is sieved of ideas.


He's lead by impulsive behaviour.

Habitually blurts out policies on the hoof.

Yesterday Boris confidently rejected ideas adopted by others.

Today he embraces them as sound concepts.


Surely this is no way to run a chip shop?

Yet the gormless Boris merrily bungles through with the blessings of those who empowered him.

◄ Play temptation

Scintillating conversation ►

Ray you've accurately summed Boris up. I agree that one can't take him seriously.

M C Boris's decision making is based on whatever first comes into his head. His behaviour in these difficult times has frankly been childish. He readily blames others for his lack of leadership. He contradicts himself daily.

Is he capable of learning lessons in hindsight? Doubt it judging him on his perfomance thus far!

Boris reminds me of Toad from Wind in the Willows Abdul, It was difficult to take him seriously as he laid out his plan for the lockdown, and then Cummings took on an almost ceremonial denial of any breach. That's part of the bigger picture I suppose - a distant horizon while we look at near objects (of derision).

We are all able to benefit from hindsight but this sort of event is beyond our generational experience, not least the degree of the effects even now being discovered on both the individual and collective body of health. The question has to be - in the most
serious sense: have lessons been learnt?

Stephen indeed it isn't a laughing matter.
Indecision doesn't allay fears.
Thank you for the like.

I love the idea of No 10 as a mushroom, with the boy Dominic getting the frying pan ready. Which leads to the chip shop, or perhaps not.

Great fun, although I guess no one should laugh too much.

Poor old Boris his days are numbered.

Dammed if he does, dammed when does not.
