Has the 'Peppa Pig' Prime Minister lost the plot or is this just a hiccup?

The papers are full of Johnson's rambling CBI speech. "A pork pie short of a picnic" - Daily Star. Is he overdoing it? Is he not cut out for the job? Or is he just human and this was a one-off bad performance? I would be in interested to hear what you think.

BBC News - Is everything OK for Boris Johnson?

Perhaps we're just all finally sick of his act

Re: Has the 'Peppa Pig' Prime Minister lost the plot or is this just a hiccup?

He's looking very rough these days and his performance yesterday makes me think he may be a functioning alcoholic. He did say he was giving up alcohol back in August but recent performances like yesterday and at COP26 do give the impression that he might be on the sauce.

This isn't a judgement on Boris Johnson by the way. Alcoholism is a disease that can affect anyone and deserves compassion and help.

I wouldn't be surprised if a leave of absence might be on the cards soon for 'exhaustion'

The cynic in me doesnt think hes any worse than hes always been, however the BBC, Sky and other sections of the press are no longer willing to participate in the charade that hes a credible world leader.

The cultures are circling, its not worth his while being PM anyway hence his reliance upon free holidays so I suspect a transition is a certainty in 2022/23.

He's got all the sheeple talking about pepper pig rather than the cost of social care.

Re: Has the 'Peppa Pig' Prime Minister lost the plot or is this just a hiccup?

The presenter on LBC said something interesting last. He was previously Theresa May's speech writer, so has a lot of experience of No 10. He said that at the time Johnson became prime minister, he was talking to someone at No 10. That person said that Boris probably wanted to have been Prime Minister without all the effort involved actually being Prime Minister.

In short, he wanted it on his record that he had been Prime Minister. Presumably because that opens up potentially a lot of lucrative avenues.

Of course it does.

He can go on the lecture circuit wit the likes of Blair, Brown, Cameron take on a few advisory positions and non-exec roles.

He'll earn a fortune.

Yep, and the people lining up to pay to watch will probably be the very ones slagging him off now

He's just added to a long list of screw-ups.
