I wonder if this is the reason why the Tories are comfortable.

They don't want a landslide as it will be impossible to get rid of the second Thatcher but a majority of around 50 will do.

One thing that struck me about that was that Foreign Secretary Johnson appears not to have read the report.

Boris is only allowed a copy of the Beano in his red box. He was just burbling air: "We have lots of stuff we don't publish."

Tory election research found Boris Johnson was 'deeply divisive'

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... y-divisive

Quote:
The suggestion was that Johnson – who has previously been seen as a strong election asset by many Tory MPs because of his popularity and success in twice winning the mayoralty in London – had developed a “polarising” effect since the EU referendum.

A lot of anger appeared to be linked to the claim of Vote Leave, for which he was the most high-profile supporter, that Brexit would deliver £350m more to the NHS every week.

The issue was raised during this general election campaign, with one man, Grant Curnow, heckling Johnson during a visit to St Ives by shouting: “You lied to us, Boris. You lied about the money.”

The foreign secretary was also confronted by students carrying protest banners when visiting Balliol College, Oxford, where he studied classics in the 1980s.

Johnson’s potential to be toxic, particularly in strong remain areas, could be a possible setback if he ever took over the leadership of the party – especially given that he used to be one of the very biggest Conservative hitters.

Deborah Mattinson, founding partner at Britain Thinks, said: “Looking at Boris a couple of years ago, in focus groups he was frankly the most popular politician in Britain. It was like he walked on water.

“But the referendum changed that and people saw him in a different light. He is a more divisive figure now. It is a sense that he was in it for himself.”

Not just Remain areas.

How Jeremy Corbyn managed to bring Ukip voters back to Labour

Despite having called the election, the Conservatives appeared unprepared in their policy development, seemingly hopeful that the battleground would be simply whether or not Brexit would be carried out. There seemed little acknowledgement of what Brexit meant beyond leaving the EU. As David Frum, senior editor at the Atlantic, argued: “Brexiteers promised £350 million a week extra for the NHS. They delivered a dementia tax instead. That the winning argument for Brexit was a (deceptive) promise of more government spending should have been a warning to anti-EU Tories.”

While Labour didn’t tour the country in a red bus promising £350m a week extra for the NHS, there were costed pledges to increase funding – not just for the health service but for all our public services – and a commitment not to raise taxes for 95% of earners. The Conservatives made only vague promises to increase NHS funding, and then ruled out raising taxes for only the top 5% – essentially making Labour’s argument for them. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... ack-labour


I think it was Farage who said I wish we never set eyes on that bloody bus. But it was the Bus Wot Won It. And it wasn't Farage's toxic campaign that ran it but the Tories in Vote Leave.

Johnson has become Jeffrey Archer- a rouser of the faithful at conference, but a walking liability. I remember when he was selected as London Mayor candidate. A posh Tory dame on Any Questions was asked about him, and replied that "some people are, um, accident prone".

Shows exactly what a massive cheesy diseased bell end he really is.

We were suggesting that was better negotiating Brexit than Emily Thornberry, Thornberry might be aloof but fucking hell.

Empirical man of facts and figures Boris Johnson has some stats to get him off the hook, pass the buck to Khan and accuse Corbyn of slagging off fire fighters. Boris of all people understands the emotion of leadership. Has it got his baby clothes ready to grab a life raft?

I don't give a shit if this finger pointing at Boris' fire cuts is evidence free politicking he elected to play this game and now its bitten him on the arse

Lead Brexiteers Boris Johnson and Iain Duncan Smith are set to lose their Commons seats at the next election thanks to the impact of the “Corbyn surge” on Westminster boundary changes, a new study suggests.

The review of all Parliamentary seats in the wake of the 2017 election projects that the Foreign Secretary will be ousted by Labour in the new constituency of Hillingdon and Uxbridge.

Former Work and Pensions Secretary Duncan Smith is also on course to be defeated by Corbyn’s party in the newly created Chingford and Woodford Green seat, according to elections analyst Martin Baxter of the Electoral Calculus website
.

I thought the boundary changes were off?
