    Will Boris Johnson be re-elected as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom with a new Conservative government if a general election is held in 2024? Or will it go to Keir Starmer become PM? maybe someone else?

    Will Scotland and Wales still be speaking to us? Or will Northern Ireland be exploding and on fire again? And how much of the country will be left standing and open for business by then after COVID and Brexit?

    Let's make our American cousins suffer and talk about our embarrassing and ridiculous domestic situation for a bit! Let's here it for Britain! :D

    Tbh, I find it all so depressing I've virtually stopped watching the news. Johnson caused thousands of unnecessary deaths but apparently that doesn't matter. A party full of self-serving liars with a media that is mostly rw or at best compliant. What could possibly go wrong(er) ?

    I expect another tory government, the breakup of the UK, various crises and the virtual death of genuine democracy. On the plus side, we got our country back and made it safe for overt racism.

    I have a hideous feeling Bozo may get a second term, unless Labour and the Lib Dems can do a deal, probably involving the Scot Nats as well. The rise of the Scot Nats has made it very hard for Labour to win a majority.

    Thanks to Bozo, I shall never vote Conservative again. But there aren't enough people like me to keep him out, I'm afraid.

    I have a feeling that the Tories will be in power for the foreseeable future. Another 10-years at least.
    Labour are still disjointed and an ineffective opposition albeit the only viable one currently.

    In 2019, Johnson's Tories won just over 42% of the vote; Labour won 32% of the vote yet the Tories have a massive of 160 more seats than Labour (app 360 to 200)
    So, 58% voted against the Tories but are not represented

    The UK desperately needs Proportional Representation but Labour just voted against it at their conference (Mainly because of the mass Union votes)

    I feel disenfranchised; I don't vote for anyone, I just vote against the Tories.

    I'd put my money on the tories replacing him by then. The Telegraph, Times and Mail will make hay for a few weeks on his legendary incompetence and some other ghoul will be in place about a year before the next GE.

    I'll tell you what. You send Boris to us and we'll send Trump to you.

    It’s a deal, but you have to take Nigel Farage as well. And Piers Morgan.
