Boris Johnson ‘tipped’ for top NATO job in latest Big Dog fantasy – 17 scathing reactions
An attempt to have Boris Johnson added to the leadership ballot appears to have failed, after half the signatories of the petition were found to include non-party-members and hilariously apt fake names.
We did it team!
We drew attention to the farcical petition to get Johnson on the ballot
The one led by massive Tory donor, Lord Cruddas
& I just know it was some of my lovely followers who signed the petition as Vladimir Putin & Sergei Lavrov

With little to encourage them in their Big Dog Returns fantasies, supporters will have been heartened at this snippet of political gossip from the Telegraph.

There was a modicum of scepticism about the claim. Oh, okay – there was a massive amount of pisstaking, and we gathered some favourites.
Not interested unless it pays a shit load of money, involves no actual work and means I can play with my dressing up box every week. https://t.co/ODmHrCxs31

Similiar story here. I'm being tipped to be the next James Bond by myself and someone I met at a bus stop and I just KNOW the French are going to veto it. pic.twitter.com/sY5SUsU6i0

The man who secretly met a former KGB agent after a crucial NATO summit and can’t remember what he discussed or who he was with? I think it’s a ‘no’.https://t.co/f9rpybRIIg

Who was he "tipped" by? Nadine Dorries? https://t.co/r7978ocvIi

Can’t think of anyone better to be head of NATO than someone who gets so pissed with KGB spies he can’t remember a thing

Personally, I can't think of anyone more qualified to become NATO General Secretary than the man was so successful as Foreign Secretary, he got Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's prison sentence extended. What could possibly go wrong?

And assuming that the other NATO countries don’t get a say in this at all, I foresee absolutely no problems with this plan. https://t.co/klsFFXy9kq
