Blyth - Lower than average wages, higher than average unemployment, worst cuts to any Police force in 2018, voted for Brexit and will be badly affected by it, 47 migrants out of a population of 300,000 and they voted a TORY MP in :butt :butt

Iím hoping against hope that Johnson at heart isnít as extreme right wing as the ERG cohort that surrounds him.  I guess this will become clear through January.

I donít think he will be as bad as people worry about because if his time as mayor is anything to go by, he doesnít do a lot. The things heís best known for like the Olympics and Bikes were under way before he became mayor and his other ideas like the airport and garden bridge were just stupid and didnít go anywhere (but did waste a fair bit of money). But the most important lesson to learn I from his career is that he will say and do whatever the electorate want to hear, and most of them are not hard right nutters.

Well the EU are going to have to help him sell a soft brexit as a breakway deal victory.
No extension of 2yrs just a implementation period of 2yrs.
Tried to PM you to say thanks for last nights post,  :) no pms which is fine.

I should have caveated my post to begin with ĎOther then Brexit....í, I kind of assumed it was taken as given on Brexit and it will be done on 31/01/20 (thankfully I will be on holiday then!), but as heís not so dependent on the ERG he might be able to soften things slightly with the EU. But on the flip side, obviously now he cant blame Parliament for frustrating the will of the people and all that so will have to plow on with no excuses when it come to Brexit.

And no worries, I actually forgot I had turned messages off (was after someone sent a message with some strong language- not aimed at me- but the messages used to be forwarded to my email, which was my work one so just stopped them)
