lets hope theres evidence of it being forwarded to Boris .... if its in the form of a discussion Boris will weasel his way out of it with some flannel 

The thing is, if he is in the forward, he can claim he never read it.

Either way, if the email comes about I can see Reynolds and a few major players at the party stepping down.

I think there's going to be a cull of top civil servants, right? Isn't that part of the operation save big nob or whatever it's called.

I was listening to political commentator bloke Steve Richard's podcast the other day, and he reckons Johnson doesn't like parties or drinking, he's an extrovert on the stage but an introvert in real life who ust likes reading and writing about classics and churchill in his spare to,e. Carrie likes a party though, and Johnson likes to please people, and is at heart a libertarian who doesn't like to follow rules.

true ... but if he replied then hes banged to rights 

If he replied then he's a bigger idiot than I thought.

Yup, if the stories are correct. Email will be found, people will step down to take the blame off of Boris and then he can claim he never saw the email but did the right thing in the end.

But if he culls Civil servants he'll create even more sources and the leaks will never stop... He'll try to lean on Gray to ensure the report does not say he broke the law and Reynolds will be the fall guy, no doubt paid handsomely for his troubles. His behaviour in PMQs yesterday suggests to me he's already confident of getting away with it.

Correct. Far better to ignore the foolhardy liberals desperate for him to go as motivated by an obsessive personal hatred, blind to strategy, and instead just sit back and let the wound fester.

He’s a liability and a millstone for the tories now, long may he reign!

I guess risk is the news cycle could move on and people will have forgotten about all this in 6 months time...?

lot of disgusting comment around this defection from the labour left, cos if previously-tory-supporters aren't wanted, labour is going nowhere.

 

Unfortunately too many Labour members/supporters are more content on being on the sidelines and being self-righteous than actually doing what is required to get in government and make impactful change.

They still haven't learnt the lessons on why they lost the red wall...  

If you look down and hate on the people who you want to vote for you - you are going to have a problem.

I think Bojo's performance yesterday was all about surviving the day:  little beyond. Two awful days in a row would have seen the curtains drawing excruciatingly tight on his premiership.

Bad news is queuing up ahead. There's Gray, inflation, energy, energy costs, rise in national insurance etc. And if living standards decline deeper in the UK than in the EU his cherished Brexit claims will bite him in the arse.

Not to mention local elections in May.
