It’s been an honour to represent Orpington for 9 years & to serve as a minister under three PMs. In recent weeks I’ve been torn between family loyalty and the national interest - it’s an unresolvable tension & time for others to take on my roles as MP & Minister. #overandout

6. They're depending on people not voting for Corbyn, which is why he wants a GE to save himself.

2. BoJo reminds me of Trump, with delusions that he can force or will his intentions into law.

5. Bye Bye Boris

I've often wondered why not one member of the Con's family members would tell the country the truth about this monster. ReTHUGs are even worse

10. Hands up who thinks this is going to be used against Boris ??? Lol

Boris Johnson, asked back in 2013 about the Miliband brothers, said: “Only a socialist could do that to his brother, only a socialist could regard familial ties as being so trivial as to shaft his own brother.”

Oh dear.

His remarks came in an Evening Standard interview, referring to Ed Miliband taking on his brother David to win the Labour leadership in 2010.

“I mean, unbelievable,” said Johnson. “Only lefties can think like that...they see people as discrete agents devoid of ties to society or to each other, and that’s how Stalin could murder 20 million people.”
