It is clear that Tory MPs gave the Tory party a horrifying choice of candidates.
My honest opinion is that neither of these characters is capable of running the country in these difficult times.
It is clear that Parliament, in not obeying the instructions of the electorate, has signally failed in its duty. I am left feeling that, at the national level at least the majority of politicians are self seeking and mendacious.
I wouldn’t recommend anyone to take the time to read this book as it can do nothing to influence anyone in the time we have left. The die is cast.
Since I read the book and became even more enlightened about the ghastly egotistic Bois, I have been watching his progress as Foreign Secretary with interest. Theresa May's joke at his expense in her Tory party conference speech was the icing on the cake. She obviously has no illusions about him.
As a former newspaper editor I found it almost impossible to credit that he was allowed to miss his deadlines so frequently, and without any financial penalty. Why should this man believe that he is so superior to everyone else that normal rules of behaviour do not apply to him? Maybe he will find it a little harder to get away with this attitude now that he is in a job where he can be held to account by a no-nonsense Prime Minister.
Sonia Purnell correctly predicts (or warns of) his ultimate ambition but no reader should be in any doubt that he is a starter, not a finisher. The EU will eventually prove that a Boris Brexit will be a disaster for the UK. He failed as a Foreign Secretary and has nobody to blame but himself when the EU fail to indulge him.
Superb read for all interested in the background to a current leader.
