If May is being bullied by Boris Johnson, why should she ever stand down?

[Composite: Evolve Politics.]

We stand up to bullies, here in the UK, don’t we?

Oh, sorry, did I miss a memo? Theresa May is supposed to stand aside because Boris Johnson is bullying her? The man who said Sirte in Libya would be a brilliant tourist destination after they “cleared away” all the dead bodies? The man who repeated a colonial poem by Kipling in a Myanmar temple, only to be told it was “not appropriate” by his own ambassador?

The man who was told by Tory grandee Kenneth Clarke that he needed to research what being foreign secretary means, and then try being one?


Boris Johnson will never be prime minister of the UK.

Even if the Conservative Party offers him the job, the rest of the country will tell him to, basically, kiss our rosy behinds before we’ll give him a single damned thing.


That creature is an embarrassment to every single citizen of the United Kingdom.

Conservative donors have called for Theresa May to stand down because she is being “bullied” by colleagues including Boris Johnson.

Following an ill-fated conference speech and rumours of a backbench plot against the prime minister, two wealthy supporters said the party must act quickly and install another leader.

    Exactly right. There are many reasons for arguing that May should stand down, but ‘being bullied by Johnson’ is the absolute antithesis of a reason for standing down.

    I certainly would like Mrs. May to retire but only because I want Jeremy Corbyn to run this country for all the people rather than a Tory party which is only out for itself. As much as I despise Mrs. May’s running of the country I would prefer her to stay rather than any of the, behind the scenes, backbiters until we have a proper contest by having a general election. As for Boris Johnson I think we all know he is history

    The bullying Tories complaining about bullying within their own odious ranks. Are we meant to take that seriously?

    and who have they got in mind?one asks oneself. she needs to call an election not stand down for some other demonic person to take her place. god forbid it lands up being BJ. or CG (chris Grayling ) or even worse IDS… among others.

    Bullying is in Johnson’s DNA. It was nurtured at Eton and has been a trademark of his ever since.
