Nobody won. That's why parliament is in turmoil.

Just to clarify this winning and losing business. Boris Johnson, in a Sun article, told readers “I am delighted to see that we Tories have just won Clwyd South". Unfortunately the returning officer for Clwyd had just declared the Labour candidate to be the winner by over 4000 votes. Barmy Boris, what a character! Leader of the Tory Party come September?

I returned from holiday to find a copy of our neighbourhood newspaper waiting for me. I was interested in a story about Barmy Boris (the next Tory leader leader? September?). At he end of the election campaign he had visited the local Sikh Temple to support the local Tory candidate. He took a splendid Boris-style press photo with a striking orange turban. Unfortunately, in his address to the Sikh community of Bristol East he chose to highlight the great  post-Brexit opportunities of increasing Britain's exports to India - especially whisky. The Sikh religion prohibits alcohol, and promoting it in one of their Temples was thought disrespectful by the people he was addressing. It didn't go down well. We, of course, know that it is just because he is barmy.

[The Labour candidate won the seat and increased her share of the vote by 21.5%].

Are you practicing your barmyness in case Boris has to go off on the sick?
