Boris the flop

So, here is a political party going to the country saying they will 'get Brexit done' after three years of failing to get anything done at all.

Just three years ago they said there wasn't a 'money tree'.  Now they have miraculously found one, and are in a bidding war with Labour on spending. "Anything you can do, we can do better!"

Boris doesn't understand his own Brexit deal and comes up trumps in saying that Northern Ireland has got a good one because they will remain in the single market and have free movement.  If it is so good, then why give it up for the rest of the UK?

This all took place with a rambling speech in Northern Ireland that made no sense either to those listening or to Boris Johnson, who looked like a stand-up whose jokes were falling flat.  It didn't help appearances to have a glass in his hand.  Perhaps it was water, or not.

 So far, the Tory campaign launch seems to have been a flop.  Rees-Mogg talked about what he would have done with 'common sense' if he had been in the Grenfell fire.  He hasn't been seen since.

They doctored a video of Sir Keir Starmer and then denied they had done so.  It is this kind of utter incompetence and lack of empathy that has not delivered on Brexit or anything else.

Meanwhile, Corbyn had the best lines and the best jokes, particularly the one about not knowing any billionaires.  Boris, on the other hand, knows a few - a fat lot of good it is doing him.

So, the score after the first week: Corbyn 3: Johnson 0.   The Tories lost on penalties and own goals.
