Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Johnston and Hunt show is just a performance for the benefit of the 100,000 odd geriatrics who make up the party electorate.

Not one single promise made during this election has any validity from the moment all the votes are in. So may the most convincing liar win, which means Boris by a country mile.

What happens after that? FSM know, and I bet even she's confused. I suspect that Boris will have to take us out at Halloween, and given how lazy he is, he will sell Ulster and the much-vaunted Union down the river to do it so that it isn't a no-deal which would involve too much work for him.

However, can a government he runs even make it to the end of October? Well, Tories may huff and puff about plots, but when it comes to voting against the government, they just won't do it. So all talk of sensible tories organising governments of national unity in defiance of Boris are just laughable fantasies.
