Have you ever heard off "strategy".
Having sacked 21 of his own MP's for daring to have an opinion different to his own, Boris sacrificed his very slender majority in Parliament, meaning that he is now politically impotent.
He had to call an election.
However, behind his very public invitation to call an election, was a plan to prorogue Parliament again and force through a "no deal" Brexit, meaning that, should he lose the election (when it came) the UK would still crash out of The EU with "no deal"

So, no "balls" involved here, just more slightly underhand tactics form Boris 0/6 Johnson and he could well end his tenure in Parliament without actually being able to pass ANY legislation.

Looks like his judgement was wrong, AGAIN.

On an optimistic note, I do feel a sense of privilege at living through one of the great political farces of modern history. The cast of comedic characters is brilliant - bumbling, dissembling, desperately ambitious Johnson, supercilious Rees-Mogg, ineffectual Corbyn, Old Testament Arlene Foster, John Bercow’s voice - they have hammed it up tremendously.

We have, for the first time in history I assume, a Prime Minister who wants to lose a vote of confidence. But he can’t because the opposition parties can’t decide who should temporarily replace him just long enough to get a Brexit delay and call an election... because Corbyn’s base is big enough to block anybody else but anybody outside of it despairs of/despises him. And so they’re trying to make Johnson a puppet prime minister, despite having no confidence in his competence or integrity. That’s a strong and stable position to be conducting negotiations from, innit?

In a couple of weeks Johnson will likely have to send a letter to the EU requesting an extension. Presumably signing it while on the phone to the leader of a member state (i’m imagining Viktor Orbán), requesting they veto the delay.

I know it is a cliche, but you really couldn’t have made it.

I just hope that spitting image makes it back before we get into the official GE campaign, they will have an absolute field day.
Right accross the political spectrum, the politicians all seem to have massive satire potential.

More left wing BBC indoctrination. The sooner we get out of Europe and regain our Empire the better.

I wish that we could get rid of or at least have some balanced press.
The twist that is put on certain stories in the right wing press is just embarrassing.

Just look at how Johnson is being portrayed :CRAZY:

John McDonald today said Labour will win the election with a big majority and they will change the world - and all you lefties think Boris is a joke!!
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

I admit to a profound and increasing lack of confidence in Corbyn and McDonnell’s abilities to get poop done.

To be fair though, negative opinion of Boris Johnson is by no means limited to lefties either.

He has been described by a former chairman of the Conservative Party as a ‘mendacious chancer’, for example.
