He's crapped on at least half of them already, the ones who are on side are refusing to back him on anything because whenever they do he U-turns almost five minutes later throwing them under the bus in the process. The heavy hitters are turning on him and some of the younger intake were never aligned with a lot of his views.

He got them a massive majority which has bought him as much time as he has got so far but he has been a complete embarrassment ever since the election. I really think his days are numbered. They won't want to go anywhere near the next election up against Starmer who whilst being more wooden than a branch of Wickes, accentuates the PM's inadequacies and could get enough of the centre ground to form a coalition government with the SNP.

40% is a little high for a Johnson solid vote. 30%-35% is more realistic. Don't knows are rather high too, and so everything to play for.

The Tories have dropped 3.6% and Labour have gained 7.8% since the 2019 election result.

Problem is when you have a pop at their leader the two main areas that you cannot comment on are common sense and morality because that is a waste of time and does not equate to their mindset.

Despite Tory protestations it is not about Labour or other parties----it is just how appalling our Government is, led by lies and waffle and a total waste of his costly education by a man even by the standard of other party leaders is unfit for his office.

Most sane people know that before he was elected. And the rest voted for him anyway.

Again, ‘midnight’ is sufficient. Tautology is a massive peeve of mine & ‘12 noon’ is the worst of them

My memory may be playing tricks on me - but as far as I remember there were various 'incentives' offered for the angels including:
  • Ability to turn off rep
  • Larger avatars
  • No edit history
  • Larger PM Capacity
  • Ability to be transparent/invisible

I bet if you delve around in the user admin panels deep enough you will find such a setting.
