In response to The Conservative Woman: Boris shows he could be a real leader
Today, in Parliament he was magnificent! As for Mogg, his response to the Libdems MP was a classic put-down! Absolutely brilliant! After three years of soggy depression the country can hope once again. We can hopefully get off our knees and stand tall!

His carbon neutral mention is worrisome! That means even more subsidies to renewables and higher bills for those who can least afford it. Fuel poverty in the UK is real and kills people.
The Greenies have hijacked the agenda! Stand up for old people who have to decide to Heat or Eat! That is also after being hit by their outrageous council tax bills! Both these issues hit the poor and the elderly but it is unlikely anybody gives a toss! I do as I have elderly relatives in the UK and am shocked at what they have to pay and that includes the BBC tax.
It seems churlish to sound cynical, but talk is cheap. He will have to produce a lot more than a rousing speech to convince me that he has the spine to do the necessary job. There is much talk of ‘getting a better deal’, which, given the struggles over the last three years to get an awful one, sounds suspiciously glib. I wish him well, and hope to be wrong; but my money stays in my pocket unless Nigel Farage challenges a General Election. Then it won’t go on Boris anyway.
Excellent first speech, including all the things that need to be said to unite the nation in a new, fairer future. Now he needs the energy, determination and yes, ruthlessness, to drive through the many areas of deep reform and renewal so desperately required. So I wish him well.
But my trust in the Tories has been so debased and destroyed by the metropolitan liberalism of Cameron and May, I cannot bring myself to put my trust in him. After all Boris is a full-on member of the liberal Conservatives. So my support and work for the Brexit Party continues, as we prepare for an early general election.
