According to the Daily Express. I’ve reached the conclusion that he really is delusional….( I assume this is after he’s sorted out covid, food shortages, rising fuel prices in this country etc etc). Might be a good idea to not reduce foreign aid for starters perhaps.

It will be the universe after he’s finishing levelling up the planet.

He will say anything for a pointless headline, as nothing he says is ever successfully achieved.

It all ends in chaos.

It is so unbelievably dire at the moment.
I honestly cannot believe the mess that we are in.
How easy it is to simply ruin a country

Frankly he needs to concentrate on his own population.

The poor are really beginning to suffer.

Taxes up
Food prices up
Gas prices up
Petrol prices up
Food poverty up
In-work poverty up
Child poverty up
Pensions will be even lower compared to the European pension..
Universal Credit down

The poor are always with us and they don't vote tory. So who gives a t*ss about them?

Our Master Benefit Scrounger certainly doesn't.

I wish I knew what the OP is referring to, BTW...p

Just another trite soundbite, which is meaningless, but makes him look like he is actually doing something.

Watching "The Papers"on BBC News this morning there was a brief reference to Johnson leveling up the world. He is flying to America for a Security Council meeting and I think he is planning to talk about leveling the rest of the world up to the UK's reduced pollution levels.

I've started to think he is actually Dougal off Father Ted

I think he's a very nasty psychopath.

I read that Johnson wants to get rid of independent regulators like ofcom and the charity commission.

Anyone care to support such a move?

A former colleague of Cummings was on Andrew Marr this morning. He was explaining how Johnson likes to get things done quickly and how when he was elected Mayor of London he thought that County Hall moved far too slowly.

Getting rid of the regulators is Johnson's way of speeding things up. The problem is that when we get rid of regulators sometimes there can be dreadful consequences eg the Herald of Free Enterprise and the Marchioness disaster. The former was in 1987 and the latter in 1989. I suspect that many people will have forgotten them and even more people are far too young to know about them.
