Yes, but also Gove is surely making a move - he has to be behind this.
I'm half expecting a parody video with surprisingly high production values to (with a certain amount of paid spread) go viral.. "All you need is Gove"
Or Tories asking "Should I Stay Or Should I Gove Now?"

I would have also accepted:-

Wings of a Gove - Madness

You might as well face it you're a dick with a Gove - Robert Palmer

And the classic (and tediously predictable) :-

I would do anything for love but at least I'm not a pob-faced c.nt - Meatloaf

Hopefully the most relevant song will be: Gove will tear us apart.

The cover of The Mail.

This must be a joint Cummings/Gove operation. Who else has the influence to get The Mail to attack a Tory PM?

Reuters piece

It's all getting rather interesting isn't it?

The BBC actually being a bit more committal about it that I would have expected.
The BBC wrote:
Boris Johnson said he would rather see "bodies pile high" than take the country into a third lockdown, sources familiar with the conversations have told the BBC.
I like the hedging there around "sources have told", I wouldn't expect them to word it any stronger than that.

ITV a bit more... decided on the matter.
ITV News wrote:ITV News understands Mr Johnson did make the comment when in Downing Street.
Fridgeless Man wrote:
“No, but I think the important thing I think people want us to get on and do as a Government is to make sure that the lockdowns work.

“They have, and I really pay tribute to the people of this country, this whole country of ours, really pulled together and, working with the vaccination programme, we have got the disease under control.”
I must try to find out if there's a video of that statement. I'm most interested in how he says what he says because I want to work out if he knows how absolutely f.cked he is.

If this doesn't finish him off... He might as well just start murdering his girlfriends and eating them alive at a press conference because that's f.cking it, innit.

’Isolated and at risk of becoming uncontrollable’ :lol:
“How have they got themselves in this horrible position where they can deny things on the record and the BBC will run it anyway because they think their own sources are more trustworthy?” the source said.
I dunno, maybe by proving themselves such persistent, incorrigible liars that even the cringingly deferential BBC can’t stomach channeling them any more?

No, sorry, it can’t possibly be that.

This won't finish him off. It'll piss off everyone who already doesn't like him, but people probably won't think about that remark very much at the next general election in three years time. Without audio or video which can be endlessly repeated the story won't stay in the headlines.

Boris Johnson is a vampire cat.

THEY ARE BEING MEAN TO BORIS.

AFTER HE NEARLY KILLED HIMSELF WORKING SO HARD TO SAVE US FROM COVID.

JUST BECAUSE HE DOESN'T WANT TO LIVE IN A SKIP.

"The jury has found you guilty of all charges."

*Boris waves the Union Jack, splutters something in Latin, pretends to forget where he is*

"Ha ha, you're such a character, I sentence you to a PPE contract of your own choosing."

Two weeks later:

Conservatives 46% (+4)
Labour 31% (-3)

Yes, indeed. Revelations are damaging when they negatively change the electorate's impression of someone. The public hasn't learnt anything about Johnson that it didn't know already.

Is it cash for curtains, cash for cushions, or cash for chintz? I've read all three today.

Pretty sure things was easier when you'd just stick -gate on the end.

I like the cadence of cash for cushions. Double alliteration is titillation.

Edit to nearly ruin that sentence. It is what it is.

Good point. They know he is a lying c.nt and they seem to like him for it, the stupid f.ckers.

If you didn’t watch yesterday’s PMQs, do have a look. Starmer utterly skewered Johnson.

A lot of Johnson's base will aspire to John Lewis, so this starts to highlight that he actually holds *them* in contempt - and isn't the amiable bumbling toff doing his best, but would be a fun mate, but actually a bumbling supercilious toff who DGAF about others (it links with the let the bodies pile up comment)
