    Cross the Austrian boarder all the time. Never pulled over. Only trucks, mini buses etc. If only UK border control was as enforced.

    There's plenty of traffic. The Germans just put more car lengths between drivers. Whereas the UK opens up the hard shoulder as a new traffic lane.

    AfD got a higher proportion of German votes than UKIP did in 2015... (But I suspect if Germany was to hold a leave/remain EU referendum, it would be a crushing remain victory).

    Most pundits reckoned after GE2017 that May would make it to conference season, and Murdoch has decreed the time is now. But is Boris the trojan horse, whilst they're really backing Jacob Rees-Mogg?

    My bet would be Boris as PM with Mogg in number 11 as chancellor. Mogg is great but just not acceptable to the main stream.

    Ruth Davidson.

    Just throwing that name out there. She’s got a personality, shows signs of intelligence and isn’t scared or flummoxed by interviewers.

    She'd be an exceptional candidate, certainly Labour's worst nightmare, but she isn't eligible, and there isn't an obvious route to her becoming eligible unless the next election really does happen in 2022, which seems highly unlikely. Also, she's ruled herself out, and she's a straight talker, so I believe her.

    Of the remaining options, I see no one particularly credible in the cabinet (perhaps DD as a caretaker). Speaking selfishly, I'd love to see Johnson and Mogg as leader/chancellor, because they're full fat free marketeers, but they'd be a total disaster, electorally and probably in every other respect. Johnson has no grasp of details and Mogg is well spoken/rehearsed, but there's a lot of magical thinking in between the gems of truth.

    People who say this..

    Why did you vote for Trump, cause he's straight talker. I've got a wall in the garden he want's to build one, straight talker you know.

    Her gained seats are the result of a SNP backlash not seats won. She says what people want to hear, like all Tories, but underneath does not care for conservatism. Quite the opposite, sell the family silver and squeeze the poor.
