Well beyond the next GE which he'll win with a thumping 100 seat+ majority.

So do you honestly believe Corbyn can beat him? Boris is a very popular guy and will get out and lead a great campaign.

I didn't say anything did I?

I was just laughing at you. Your weird adoration/trolling...whatever it is that you do on here.

I genuinely don't get it either, he's exactly the sort of person in society that Boris hates and wouldn't hesitate to make his life worse for him either. It's like a perfect example of somebody willingly shooting themselves in the foot, and I think he's beyond hope too sadly.

Even a large proportion of Tory voters think he will be a bad PM. He isn't anything like as popular as he was before it became clear what a big fat liar he is.

Assuming the queen doesn't say "You're 'aving a larf" and refuse to appoint him, the answer to the question is too long.

Boris is a very divisive character - but I know many people who voted for him in 2008 and 2012 as London Mayor who now cannot stand him because of his apparent support for Brexit. I've always distrusted him, but it'll be interesting to see what he actually DOES rather than says, because he is a lot more internationalist and 'Global Britain' than many of his supporters (Chris included) and the most important issue for Boris is always Boris... so I don't think (sadly) it'll be a short premiership and he will get to 2022, doing so with a slightly tweaked WA that persuades those final recalcitrant ERG MPs to support it, rather than risk a no confidence vote and a collapse of Government now that he has his dream job.

Which is exactly why I think he's trolling, because no one could seriously be that stupid and gulliable.

Considering how long May has lasted, I feel he'll do a year or two. All depending on what happens with Brexit really. If he tries to push a no-deal later this year and that leads to a general election then goodbye Boris and the conservative party.

Surely that's a quality that other politicians would admire... laugh.gif

It's 3-6 months or up to the next GE depending on whether a VoNC is successfully called and I couldn't tell you which. The other option, that he resigns in the event of catastrophic failure, is something I cannot see him doing.

You mean, he won't do something 'catastrophic', or he will but refuse to resign over it?

the latter, everything about his character suggests that he will hold onto power as long as he is able. I don't see him doing what May did except under extreme duress.

I went with 7-12 months but was tempted to go for the next option.

I didn't like the options.

I feel torn between "until he crowns himself King Of The World" and "However long it is it will seem like an eternity"....

Unfortunately options like those aren't quantifiable... tongue.gif
