      1. He said he would deliver Brexit and he did.
      2. 20,000 new Police Officers by March 2023, 3005 upto March last year, lastest figures out soon.
      3. Hospital Upgrades starting soon the government announced £1.8bn for NHS hospitals in England, with £1bn immediately made available for new equipment and the 20 upgrades.

      4. His handling of vaccine procurement second to none and if the roll out turned out to be a cluster **** then that would of been his fault right not the NHS right?

      The list go’s on, I have lived within my means and enjoyed life under both Tory and Labour governments, I wouldn’t be so blinkered to say any differently.


      Oh and finally I like him because I think he stands up for Britain and will always put Britain first, never saw that in Blair, Brown or Cameron!
      Why does a prime minister need to stand up for Britain? That's very Trumpian. Because he puts Union Jacks everywhere and tells his cronies to do the same? Populism and divide and rule didn't end well in th US nor will it here
      Brexit = Nationalism

      The reality he hasn't stood up for Britain, he has divided it and now to the point it is on the verge of fracture.

      Populists are great at winning referendums and elections with simple slogans. But when confronted with complex problems they fail on an epic level

      Jan 2021, HMRC - "Cost of customs declarations post Brexit, £7.5 Billion per annum"

      Remember this when he co-authored "Britannia Unchained" along with Priti P and others...

      British workers are "among the worst idlers in the world", a group of Conservative MPs has claimed.

      The UK "rewards laziness", does not encourage risk-taking and must strive to emulate the work ethic and low-tax culture in parts of Asia


      We all know the agenda...

      If Britain is in such a parlous state that it's relying so heavily on Boris Johnson standing up for it then it's properly screwed.

      Of course it always used to be that Britain didn't need a Prime Minister to "stand up for it", it stood up perfectly well for itself. It's soft power was second only to the USA (and nothing like as crass and overt as the Americans), it's position as a beacon of global diplomacy was basically unquestioned at the top of the pile and it provided a useful pivot between the two major power blocs of the western world (Europe and the US) while also maintaining a strong economy and "hard" power presence. It's almost like about 5 years ago there was an act of extreme and foolhardy national folly which diminished Britain massively and led to the establishment of a Government which has routine trashed Britain's reputation at every turn trying to wrap itself in the flag to hoodwink the gullible that it was somehow doing it for the benefit of the nation.

      Why didn't Blair, Brown or Cameron "stand up for Britain"? Because they didn't need to. In the same way 15 years ago my grandmother didn't need a zimmer frame to do it for her.

      I respect your right to an opinion, you and me are polar opposites clearly but that’s ok

      Johnson is in trouble if the Mail is turning against him. Paving the way for Sunak or Gove perhaps?
