I bet a windfall tax and help with fuel bills.

Well it will have to be something that he doesn't end up having to actually implement.

Whitewavemark2 Sat 21-May-22 19:39:26

He lies anyway, so whatever he announces, nothing will come of it.

Riverwalk Sat 21-May-22 20:37:10

40 new hospitals - this gets trotted out every now and then.

Soroptimum Sat 21-May-22 20:46:19

Minimum wage to £15, Windfall tax, pension rise by 10%, scrapping increase in NI contributions, and hopefully sacking JRM 😊

Maywalk Sat 21-May-22 20:53:22

Probably tell everyone he is finally going to buy a comb.

He always looks like a ruddy hedgehog to me.

Blossoming Sat 21-May-22 21:06:41

I am outraged on behalf of hedgehogs. We have some living in our garden.

Iam64 Sat 21-May-22 21:13:34

Some world beating, oven ready plan to sort out the Northern Ireland border problem, social/health care, criminal justice, cost of living crisis, cost of fuel, energy - take your pick

Visgir1 Sat 21-May-22 21:17:19

Or.. Something about The Royal family

MaizieD Sat 21-May-22 21:25:18

Durham police will announce that Starmer wasn't guilty of any breach of lockdown regulations, thus provoking a Daily Mail storm of hysteria over corrupt and biased police forces.

The Cambridges will announce baby no. 4 on the way..

H & M will breathe the wrong way...

Casdon Sat 21-May-22 22:11:55

If he runs true to form - complete reorganisation of the alleged s**tshow that is the Civil Service. ‘It wasn’t me’ will be the new Tory mantra.

Zonne Sat 21-May-22 22:17:05

First plane load of refugees to Rwanda.

Heh heh heh. You're not wrong MaizieD.

They’re starting with Union bashing

Whitewavemark2 Sun 22-May-22 03:12:23

Johnson to sack head of civil service Simon Case - of course he is- everyone and everything is sacrificed for the greater good who is Johnson.

Ailidh Sun 22-May-22 06:53:49

Reinstate the Triple Lock but with no date specified, so that when the hoo-ha has died down, it can be slid way down the schedule.

Chocolatelovinggran Sun 22-May-22 08:06:51

Phew what a scorcher?! Thanks to government initiatives, the sun is shining more since Brexit.

Charles and Camilla on EastEnders!

Whitewavemark2 Sun 22-May-22 08:46:29

I know!

Johnson will invoke article 16.

Anniebach Sun 22-May-22 09:16:39

He will resign and I will buy a flying pig

CvD66 Sun 22-May-22 12:52:07

Probably get headlines using
- new sleaze on Prince Andrew
- knighthood (or overseas equivalent) to Zelensky
- Bas Javid new Met Commissioner
- new public holiday to celebrate Brexit benefits
- sale of NHS to Saudi government!

I'll bet on Sue Gray's previous affair with Prince Andrew being discovered by the DM.

I reckon you will win WWM.

1) Kate will release more photos of the kids.

2) Another boosterism idea to help families, but no date attached

3) A boat asylum seeker dragged screaming to a plane, going to Rwanda, to appease the right wing.

4) (outside bet) Johnson will ask the Queen to make a Tik-Tok video of her breakdancing along the corridors of Buck House.
