I was thinking much the same Hierophant. I have never much liked Tom Watson but he would certainly be a good choice to lead the Labour party. I do quite like the idea of Rory Stewart as Conservative leader but could he rouse up a good following among his colleagues and the public.

Rory Stewart could be quite good...He wasn't as well known by the public before all this, but his CV and Wiki page are full of achievements and good stuff...so he has a pretty decent chance.

Talking of Rory's, I think the impressionists will be honing up their skills...and eagerly awaiting the result..

Is the next PM going to be one that is easy to impersonate, everyone can do them...or is it going to be one that only the top impressionists can do?...That is the main question for me..

We need one that will make a great Spitting Image puppet...all sorts of wonderful features.

1.0 How strange, two people (or is it one?) from the same county,
1.1 Whilst I don't hail from the North of England, I can understand why ppl who do, mock, and sometimes resent, the blatant ignorance of many ppl about any part of UK north of Watford or west of Staines.

2.0 with the same writing style and attitude.
2.1 You'd never in a million years make it as a Stylometrist if that's your analysis.
Why not try running the texts thru one of the many computer-based Stylometry programmes instead of trumpeting your 'cod' claim?
2.2 "same ... attitude". What on earth does that mean?

3.0 And alter ego and alias
3.1 The same alter ego and alias - Hello there. Hello, planet Zog.

4.0 seem to be voting each others posts excellent.
4.1 "seem". Nothing to prove the assertion, but throw mud anyway.
4.2 Your proposition seems to be that: TWO ppl could not possibly have similar political opinions on a particular subject which are not in conformity with the cabal which dominates this Forum.
There can only be one explanation = they're cheating clones.

5.0 One way of finding somebody to agree with you...invent them. : -)
5.1 And the US/A landing humans on the Moon, and returning them alive, was an elaborate hoax?

I quite like Rory Stewart from what I've seen of him, he asks good questions and attempts to answer them, he's not afraid of complexity either. I think he might make a good leader, but not a good leader for the conservatives, or not right now.

Boris Johnson is being taken to court for the £350m on the side of the bus, misconduct in public office I think the charge is, well thats him scuppered I hope.

Tom Watson could be good as Labour leader, but then I think Corbyn's a disaster, to many MP's and other supporters are having to spend to much time explaining his 'constructive ambiguity' policy towards brexit and not enough time talking about other things.

imo rory stewart is more of a wet lettuce than a leader, and he made a gaff when being interviewed in the back of a taxi by jon snow the other night.

people have made reference to corbyn being softly spoken but stewart is worse, and he just doesnt inspire me.

Persona and wondroushen. Similar posts and I agree with both of you.

Tom Watson for Labour.
Rory Stewart for the Conservatives.
Johnson for the Dock.
Corbyn for the Scrapheap.
Farage ... best forgotten.

That could be the start of sorting out our present disasterous situation.

Good"BWith. Thank you for your congratulations but i assure you they are unnecessary.

I referred to 'a great many on here' because so many have actually posted their accusations and suspicions on many threads over many weeks.

I would not ask you to carry my stick so you are safe.

Ref your latest, little Sir Echo:

A definition: *

A Rant: *

1) Any post which is longer than three short sentences
2) Ditto, which expresses an opinion slightly more liberal than (Alias) Tommy Robinson or UKIP.
3) Any point or argument which needs an education beyond the age of 11 to be able to at least start to understand it.

Welcome back, lapdog.
It's good to see that your vocab has doubled now you've picked up "multiple profiles".

You really are a snivelling little person, toadying up to your pathetic pals for fear that they turn on you.

Rory Stewart is very soft spoken, but I think he does have a back bone as well as a very good grasp of international affairs, as I said beforeI think he'd be a good PM, but probably not one for the Tories, have a read up on him, he's an interesting man.


Watching the whole thing about Boris Johnson being taken to court and how its come about makes me feel like its an episode of Spooks or something, to me it has dirty tricks written all over it and I think its about Boris himself and possible becoming PM thats proted it, not Brexit.

I prefer Rory Stewart to Boris Johnson. I can’t stand Johnson but this court thing is just a well timed attack on him.
Pity some are ruining this thread as usual.

The Boris court thing is a bit strange...I've been sticking up for the side of the bus thing/NHS pledge on gov.uk for ages, so I hope he is not guilty...

The bloke who is taking him to court is a remainer ( obviously ), but it seems he has 'crowdfunded' it all, and according to one thing I was reading, is taking a £24,000 wage out of the money raised, as he says it has become his full time job...wtf

I don't mind Boris, his buffoonery is an act, and he is a really intelligent person, and high achiever...When he was on HIGNFY, Paul Merton said that when the cameras weren't rolling, he was being 'normal' and serious etc, but when the cameras started, he ruffled his hair, and off he went into 'Boris' mode

So which 'act' was Mr Johnson displaying when, as SoS, he smashed Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's chances of release from prison in Iran?
The man is a King Midas in reverse to everything he's associated with.

^ How much did his vainglorious failed London "Garden Bridge" farce cost? Around £53 000 000 for "Boris' botched Bridge".
^ His purchase of 2nd hand Water Cannon from Germany - a loss to Londoners of £300 000 after Mrs May banned their use anywhere in England or Wales and they were sold for scrap.

Those are FACTS - strangers in your warped world of make-believe and self-delusion.

It's you and your cabal of right-wing ignoramuses who are responsible for running this Forum into terminal decline.
All you are capable of is SHOUTING pathetic insults such as Troll and Fake.
You just cannot abide anyone who doesn't subscribe to your view of the world.
All you do is exchange mundane and vacuous messages which bolster your well-out-of-date, unsubstantiated gossip style 'opinions'.

I said don't bother me again, but I suppose it's a free speech world, or something like that, so I can't stop you, unless I block you, which would mean missing out on reading what the most hated person on the site was burbling about...Strangely I get pleasure from thinking of the pathetic troll and their pathetic life...It makes me feel that my life isn't too bad after all...

"people have made reference to corbyn being softly spoken"

Corbyn has copied a trick that the great Mrs Thatcher used, when she was talking about stuff like helping poor people, compassion and such like she would speak in gentle tones. When she wanted to attack, her voice would raise.
Corbyn does the same at PMQ's , acting all sympathetic until Tory MP's call him out and then his voice goes all whiny and screechy like Steptoe.

Rory Stewart would not be my first choice, but he is approaching the leadership race in a unique way and it seems to be going down well...

Ref: Rory Stewart
---
I tend to agree with you about his suitability to be the leader of what the Tory party has become.
He's an intelligent, incredibly experienced person with a wide-ranging knowledge and practical experience of "War & Peace" making.
He's edged towards the Right over the years, but not as rapidly as the party's MPs.
He gives me the impression of being too much of a Statesman to be able to be down and dirty to see off ppl like Rees Mogg and the very dangerous Steve Baker and the Heritage Foundation sympathisers.

His future may well be in the UN and who knows, as a possible Secretary-General.
