    It's par for the course with this guy though, everything is predicated on popularity not about what is good for the country/economy/people.

    Leave voters were too ignorant to understand the implications

    No, no. I've heard people repeatedly say they knew exactly what they were voting for when questioned as to why they've fucked themselves over.

    As already shown brexit supporters will blame everyone else, remainers, EU, the sky/clouds and probably now Biden. My friend's father in law is now claiming he actually supported remain despite saying "grt on with it" and "leave means leave!!!1111" for years

    When the real shit hits the fan, a lot of people will claim they never supported Leave

    This puts the UK in such a strong negotiating position; public, desperate and a very short period of time.

    If it wasn't for the fact I know behind Boris' bumbling façade is a fatter, more stupid bumbler, you could say this was a planned political move by a remainer pretending to be Leave PM

    Don't forget that he's really lazy too.

    But he's stuck at home, with a child, something he has never had to cope with before. He has the job he always wanted, and it's a nightmare. 2 ex wives, enough kids for a 'Look at this scum' article in The Sun, and now he's breathless all the time so couldn't do anything with a new Arcuri if he could find one. And he's not even in charge. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Etc.

    Let's not forget that the Vice President probably also has a bone to pick with Britain given her parents are from commonwealth countries.

    You reap what you sow. :D

    Boris already eased tensions with his "watermelon smiles" comment.

    Biden winning is a glimmer of hope for the future relationship but I do worry that the UK won't make his top 100 list of priorities.

    The best outcome is that a trade deal becomes more contingent on progressive issues like emissions and international relations than accepting US drug prices and lowered food standards.

    Either way it's disgraceful that the Brexiters basically ignored the Good Friday agreement like it was a minor inconvenience. The subject was raised time and time again. There are no excuses. It was never something that was going to just go away as they'd hoped.

    Our Vote Leave Government fully own the consequences, whatever they may be.

    I wonder what happens regarding an EU deal now. Biden and the Dems are highly protective of the Good Friday Agreement and want to have good relations with the EU.

    Does Boris:

    a) No Deal and fuck up the UK

    b) Do whatever he can to get a reasonable deal with the EU at the risk of alienating Leavers in the public and the party, so splitting the party

    c) Find a way to honour the Good Friday Agreement, so keeping the Dems happy and ensuring there's a deal with the US

    The latter will take a long time though, time we don't have unless the transition period is somehow extended.

    'a' and 'b' seem the most likely short term options, 'a' seems even more likely because Boris won't want to upset the Leavers and knowing him it'll likely be Boris and party before country, however the fallout will doom both him and the Tory party .....

    Of course there's also an extremely tiny chance that something will happen in the next two months which will mean that Biden winning won't be officially recognised (Electoral votes still to come and some other legal process of which I only had a brief read). Will Boris continue to try and stall with the EU, get a short WA extension somehow and hope that Trump stays in place, however unlikely that is?

    They all do. Long memories of Boris slating Obama in his opinion columns and being an obsequious trump bootlicker.

    Who would have thought an elected official making racist attacks on one of the most popular leaders in history would ever come back to bite us on the arse, eh?

    My guess is B, I think the tough-talking from Johnson in recent months has been the groundwork for claiming they've 'won' negotiations when really it'll be a massive climb down and further from what they said they wanted whilst shouting down May's deal.

    Especially now that Trump is out and Boris looks even more like the incompetent, populist moron that he is.

    He wasn't going to get a trade deal under Trump either. It's just the worst and stupidest reel of fucking incompetence that it is possible to imagine.

    He would have, but it would have been fucking awful. The only difference would have been that they'd have probably inserted wins into it like "UK gets exclusive rights over their fishing waters" just to sucker the fuckwits that voted for Brexit / him.

    In reality, it would have been no better than worse than a Biden trade deal with us as they'll leave it to their trade negotiators (remember when we had them?) who will be influenced as usual by lobby groups with the deepest pockets (Pharma, Energy, Defence, Comms).

    They don't exist to give us what we want.

    Isn't there a video of him completely slagging Trump when he was Rep candidate? Properly rips into him.

    He's got no loyalty at all.

    No basic decency either. I know that seems trivial, but most people, brought up with the usual basic respect for others would at least feel slightly ashamed at Boris type behaviour. Him, not a flicker.

    His claim that Obama removed the Churchill bust because of his part Kenyan ancestry and thus hatred of the British empire didn’t get forgotten

    You can bet there'll be a ton of leaders and politicians they'll have to play cordial and nice with, Boris will be no different.

    Still won't stop them shafting us in a trade deal, either way.

    You aren’t going to find many on here disagreeing that he needs to go.
