Boris Johnson just had his worst day for the second day in a row – 13 tweets that say it all
A correction: when we said Tuesday was Boris Johnson’s ‘worst day’ we were wrong. Wednesday turned out to be worse, much, much worse.
Having lost his Commons majority and lost his first Commons vote as PM, Johnson lost his attempt to call a general election and then the House of Lords cleared the way for a no-deal Brexit bill to become law on Friday.
Exactly how bad was it? This bad.
24th July 2019:
“Boris Johnson is a proven winner”
11 days later:
Boris Johnson loses by-election quicker than any PM in modern history.
40 days later:
Loses Parliamentary vote quicker than any PM in modern history.
Loses vote by even bigger margin.

Given his track record with employers, constituents, wives, mistresses & party leaders, I honestly thought Johnson would be more adept at lying to the country.

Boris Johnson has lost four votes, his majority and over 20 MPs. To balance it out, he has gained a creeping sense that he might be shit at the only thing he’s wanted all his life.
