Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Gove out now, with suggestions that BoJo "loaned" some votes to Hunt.

An advantage of an instant runoff voting system is that everybody physically votes at one time, so candidates can't do this sort of dynamic vote-shifting manipulation.

One more month and Boris moves into No 10.

Followed by a wailing and gnashing of teeth and, yes, a mighty wind

keep to the Fen Causeway

It's impressive just how closely Boris matches En - gerrrr - land's view of itself. From the inside looking out Boris is a magnificent statesman, steeped in centuries of leadership and oratory, born to rule those around him.

From the outside looking in he's a lazy, messy, incompetent deluded narcissist, motivated entirely by greed and sociopathic self-interest, buffered from contact with reality by inherited money and a self-reinforcing network of privilege, entitlement, and smug condescension.

Watching him get steamrollered is going to be gratifying. Unfortunately he's going to take a lot of England with him - including those English who were already living happily in the 21st century and are going to suffer for no reason.

"Watching him get steamrollered is going to be gratifying."

For that to happen, the EU needs to not roll over again.
