Make no mistake, PM's speech was pre-election pitch

Boris Johnson's first conference speech as prime minister - at this crucial juncture for Brexit - is, strangely, not the most important political event of the day.

The non-stop jokes at times felt like an after-dinner speech, but the activists lapped it up. It's been a while since they felt a sense of optimism.Mr Corbyn, he said, would blight Britain with his"damaging and retrograde ideas" and brings with him a following of"fratricidal antisemitic Marxists". There was no new policy - perhaps a missed opportunity. Just optimism about more money being put into the NHS, into education, the prospect of solving social care.

It’s no secret he wants an election. Have been living on the moon these past few weeks?

It's funny he keeps going on like he has the power to leave on 31st October, but he hasn't !! Lol! It's got to be approved by parliament, which he has no chance of winning!! We won't be leaving at all, the long game is what it's all about, even if it takes years, remain will win

Great speech .

Of course it was but it should be! Now Labour should agree get us out of this undemocratic Parliament. Fresh start after Brexit day for our country.

Who would think otherwise?

Boris has 'no memory whatsoever' of leg groping but says 'it's not true'Prime Minister Boris Johnson insists allegations of groping two women at a private lunch are untrue, despite not remembering the event. With what evidence? The say so of someone twenty years after the alleged offence. Please do some proper journalism and stop your biased bullshit... He was very very drunk at the time? It could also be a media and Remainiac led witch-hunt, where nothing gets proven but Boris sues your arse for libel and she gets locked up for wasting Police time. Winner 👍
