  1. Boris Johnson: brilliant, warm, funny – and totally unfit to be PM | Max Hastings | Comment is free | The Guardian

    I did like Hastings’ article on Johnson. Although it doesn’t exactly hold out hope for there being any better politicians either.

    @alicebartlett “Parental Alienation”? “Lymphatic Drainage”? How are those even endorsable skills?

    @jamesweiner It’s such a shame you’d got so close to launch! Never mind, well done for trying!

    @JamesWeiner Disgraceful. Can we expect a statement from the minister responsible in time for the lunchtime news?

    @revdancatt Yeah, nuts. Should be so much simpler. And (the front page) less hideous.
