Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The election of the new leader is probably the most fun thing that's happened in UK politics for 3 years.

Over the weekend we've had the "who got the most stoned at university" hustings. The eruption of naked privilege and grotesque hypocrisy has genuinely sickened many people. Their willingness to preside over the destruction of poor peoples' lives for lesser crimes than they themsleves committed has given a pause to many who would previously have considered them.

Michael Gove's is the most blatant dishonesty and, even if he himself doesn't realise it, his campaign is already mortally wounded. I'm personally convinced that his assassination was orchestrated by Johnston, in part as ice cold revenge for Gove's knifing of his cmapaign 3 years previously. I have to give kudos to Boris for how well it was done : Perfectly timed, efficiently executed and with no blood on his hands. Indeed, the victim doesn't yet know he's dead. Macchiavelli himself would have been impressed.

Rory Stewart has admitted to smoking opium, although he's probably okay on that cos he did it in Afghanistan where it would have been rude to have refused. But he wasn't going to win anyway. Most think he's runnng to seek promotion.

Andrea Loathsome Leadsom has admitted to smoking dope, but it's a kinda pathetic bid for attention. She's an obvious also ran and this doesn't help her.

People keep trying to suggest somebody who might beat Boris, but with Michael Gove left bleeding in the gutter, I think this is just a coronation now.

FSM help us all.

keep to the Fen Causeway
