    Apparently the NHS is POWERED BY LOVE so we won't need to spend any more money on it

    HE HAS ARISEN just like JESUS

    It's all just too batshit. From Death's Door to release and address to camera in about 3 days.

    And I agree @cwej, I'm not sure why his PR team didn't keep him in sweatpants for his fluff piece.

    He's made a miraculous recovery without needing a ventilator. The cynic in me says they'll now declare ventilators surplus to requirements and slash funding for them. The Sun will proudly trumpet that the power of Brexit is all we need to thrash the Coronavirus.

    Big Ron or Mugatu to confirm whether these are the ramblings of a paranoid lunatic, or whether I can finally join you in the Kingdom of Enlightened Truthers (KET).

    I bet you’d have never come to that conclusion when there were planes in the sky

    Very convenient, isn't it? Obviously I'm hoping he actually does have it and will soon die unloved and unmourned, but it seems a tad more likely that it's being used to keep him out of the way for a bit in the wake of Cumgate II.

    Also he's probably fallen off the wagon again.

    It also gets him out of the way for the remaining Brexit "negotiations"...

    Definitely retiring on health grounds before Easter. If not sooner.

    The BBC are saying it's an MP who has tested positive.

    I'd love it if he actually tested positive and thus revealed that his bout earlier in the year was a massive lie.

    There's no indication that you can't catch it twice, is there?

    Not to defend the stupid prick, but still.

    that’s true but I think the actual recorded 2nd cases are some minute percentage

    It's all very clear that we're being primed for a "transition"

    Not since Cilla Black DEAD has a thread title made me so reflexively cheerful just at the sight of it.

    I mean it was his life’s dream to be PM, I hope he doesn’t feel utterly humiliated that a little over a year into the job his own party is planning to bin him because he’s been a spectacular failure :(

    are they ACTUALLY plotting to oust him? I mean who would be primed to replace him? Rishi ain't ready yet surely. it could be unpretty PRITI which would be much worse for the UK so i wouldn't be celebrating his scheduled downfall just yet.

    I doubt he gives a toss, he’s got the title now, he can go on and make obscene amounts of money giving speeches

    He’ll surely go down in history as the absolute worst prime minister in history. His legacy is thousands of excess deaths, tanking the economy and lying in public to get his mate off the hook - he hasn’t a single accomplishment to his name.

    They are, but not until after Brexit. When it goes horribly wrong, he's the fall guy. He led the Vote Leave campaign, was PM for all the legislation, was PM for the No-Deal scenario and all its consequences.

    Who'll replace him? Fuck knows - it is a cabinet of none of the talents. Andy Zaltzman described them as "a Who's Who of who shouldn't be".

    At least Trump got a couple of miles of his wall built. Johnson has done nothing but ruin, destroy and enrich his chums. So he'll be a legend in certain very small circles and a useless cumstain to the rest of us.

    The cynic in me thinks they’ll call an election when Boris goes in the hope that Labour takes over and gets the blame for the post Brexit catastrophe and inevitable rejoining of the EU.

    The rhetoric among Tory voters over the last few months has changed to ‘we only LENT him our vote, we’ll vote Labour next time’. He obviously has the die-hards on his side but I’ve never seen people make such conscious efforts to distance themselves from their vote.
