Not quite as funny as Trump dying from it but I can't say Boris croaking wouldn't elicit a noteworthy chuckle

I love how the government is still having to insist that he is in charge, beause of the undeniable terror of Raab being acting PM that every reasonable person has.

A reasonable, moderate, and proportioned response to Raab as Prime minister would be a full out riot and deposing of the  government

The best result for him is probably death. After this shit show is resolved its back to Brexit bollocks which just can't end well in the best of circumstances.

Deal. It's a long shot, but the payoff would be marvelous. Now I need to set up a paypal account, win or lose come to think of it.

A positive outcome either way.

He dies, this shit gets taken (more) seriously, conservative party in fights over next leader. Any problems get blamed on dead guy, who people finally realise was a bit of a tit after 6 months of wearing black. Daily Express still runs bi weekly mourning headlines though.

He lives, he takes it more seriously, conservative party infighting over successor and ousting attempts begin. Any problems get blamed on him and people finally notice the man is a bit of a tit and deride him. Telegraph still gives him a cushy number though.

The variation between the best and worst of all possible worlds isn't as much as you may think at times.

So, this internal Labour report into what's being going on in the party is amazing. It basically confirms every suspicion Corbyn's supporters had of not only the media approach to his leadership, but the internal party structures as well.

Most notably, not only did the internal party leadership fail to provide Corbyn with any level of support, which was obvious, they were openly angling to throw the 2017 election in order to remove him, while using the antisemitism complaints to organise "Trot-hunting" events in the party and attempt to purge what they considered to be the far-left - often at the expense of allowing truly abusive individuals to stay in the party without sanction.

Hey Cain, seen a few articles about how ideally the daily fear should be done consistently by 1-3 people for clarity of message. Tories have been consistent in shoving a different face in front of the camera every day. Is this to drag out the coming inquest by multiple extra years? The process of evidence gathering dwarfs Grenfell and I'm guessing is closer to Iraq in inquiry scales.

Basically, what's the chances of seeing Johnson do a Blairesque mea culpa in about 15 years?

I think that's giving them entirely too much credit for forward thinking. I think they're all secretly terrified of being labelled the "face of coronavirus" and hoping the whole affair will fall on Boris Johnson. However, if they're the person doing the nightly briefings, then their chances of being the next party leader go right down.
