Bojo on good form

Brilliant speech by Boris to close the Conservative Party conference.

Light on policy - as it should be for that arena - but lots of Bojo witticisms and lampooning of opponents.

Starmer was characterised as Captain Hindsight, and if Columbus had listened to him he would be famous for discovering Tenerife.

Labour Party members were called 'Sellotape spectacled Corbynistas', who had made a 'raucous chorus about AUKUS, an idea so plainly good the Labour Conference voted against it'.

Corbyn was described as 'corduroyed Commie cosmonaut' who had finally been blasted into orbit by the electorate.

Boris made a joke about himself and Rees Mogg doing nothing to assist the meeting of immigration population reduction targets, and he got a rousing cheer for a skit about what Ian Blackford could do with high speed broadband at his croft on Skye.

I ploughed through some of Starmer's conference effort, but he could truly send a glass eye to sleep.

Boris showed today that when he's on form, there's no comparison.

Nobody denies he's an entertaining speaker.

If only that were the limit of his ambitions.

but useless for running a country.

To have a chance at running the country you first need to get yourself elected.

You can have all the earnest and well meaning polices in the world, but if no bugger votes for you you are peeing in the wind.

Boris is at his best when he does what he's good at.

He knows his audience.

When he is no longer PM he could get a job as the next Jim Davidson, or Bernard Manning. They'd also have been hoots with jokes about immigrants. :rolleyes:

Sadly, I agree with your second sentence. The UK has moved to a position where PR skills and show are often more influential than policies..

Most PMs of this last 100 years would struggle to get voted in with their fairly dour or neutral public performances.

He's OK as a speaker, as long as he doesn't get asked any awkward questions. Or lacks a fridge to hide in.

Half man, half ant... ALL TERROR!
I suppose if one's measure of of 'brilliance' is a mess of his familiar bombastic, triumphalist rhetoric & focus-group catchphrases, the usual showboating verbal diarrhoea (alliteration & pig latin's so very, very clever), all building to a complerte absence of a crescendo - at which point he just seemed to run out of pompous, reality-denying drivel and then waddle offstage - then yes, I suppose it was.

'Brilliant'. :rolleyes:

Jokes mostly pre-owned
I’d just like to add to the cacophony in this virtual echo chamber and say that he’s undoubtedly good at motivating the hard of thinking to wave flags and cheer along. Just don’t ask them difficult questions about what it is they’re actually cheering.

Placeholder for BeyondThePale Rider to say that he doesn’t care as long as he upsets the whining lefties.

You cannot be serious? A brilliant speech by a two faced, lying traitor? You must be running out of barrels to scrape Paley.

Hasn't gone down well with people who actually know what they're talking about.
