It’s Boris.

It’s Boris.

We have a new Prime Minister, and it’s Boris Johnson. As he calls up Pickfords to move his stuff into Number 10, I thought I’d ask a couple of local folks what they though of his victory.

Nicola Lowery is the Chair of Telford Conservative Association and had a vote in the contest, said: “… Johnson’s ascent to power evidences that he has clearly captured both the hearts and minds of Conservative Members and the extent of his victory provides him with a distinct mandate.”

Recognising that it’s not going to be easy, Ms Lowery went on “…rarely has this transfer of power been marked by such uncertainty and the hard work now begins for Mr Johnson as he must now arguably make the toughest political decisions since the Second World War, in a minority government where the Parliamentary arithmetic remains as before.”

Peter Scott, the Independent Borough Cllr for Newport East was not so happy with Boris, or Hunt, for that matter, “It’s a dark day for our country when someone with such a chequered past and a proven liar can become PM. The choice of Johnson or Hunt was like having to choose between hanging or lethal injection. Johnson’s unfounded optimism is frightening. I fear for our country’s future.”

Lucy Allan MP, twice elected for Telford supported Sajid Javid until he was knocked out in an earlier round. On Boris, she said
“We have had three years of Brexit stalemate and project fear which has dominated the agenda and been harmful to our politics and created uncertainty for our businesses.

“We now have an opportunity to get Brexit done and move forward. Boris Johnson has the potential to be a great Prime Minister. I wish him well and urge colleagues to back him to get the job done for the good of our country.”

What do you think?

    He won’t be calling Pickford’s, apparently he doesn’t have any stuff. The tax payers are having to pay for his furniture, despite the large amount of money he is paid in his jobs

    It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks or votes for anymore. No one listens. It is what it is.

    Talking of lying, isn’t it time Peter Scott stood as Labour so voters know what they’re voting for? 😀

    Lucy Allan, despite having been elected to one of the most pro Brexit constituencies in the UK, voted for Treason Mays appalling WA on it’s 3rd reading – despite acknowledging , in the first two votes that it was a really bad deal for the UK. She needs to be de-selected for caving in and taking the easy way out. We need an MP who will fight for us, and Lucy Allan, definitely, is not that person!!!!

    Johnson campaigned for the EU just weeks before the referendum. Suddenly switched to Leave. Won then fled because he didn’t know what to do so how can he suddenly deliver now?

    The Brexit stalemate was caused by traitors from all parties who refused to carry out the wish of the majority of people. They should all be ashamed of themselves. Corbyn has said for 30 years that we should come out of EU , now he’s not sure because he may get a few votes .
