I think the opposite is true. We’ll now see all the candidates desperately trying to appear as hip and down wiv da kidz by claiming to have smoked/snorted/ingested/injected all sorts of substances in the past, which they now regret deeply. 

Because being down with the kids is an important consideration for the electorate in a Tory Leadership contest - right wing, middle class, over 55's.

Perhaps not the kids, but probably with the age group you mention.  That group would include the "yuppies" from the 80's who may feel a connection with a Tory party leader who indulged in their own youth.

I think Boris's proposal to cut tax for those on over £50k especially since it will be funded by NI rises which won't impact pensioners will resonate more strongly with Tory Members.

Bit of a contrast too, with Labour's new environmentally-based proposal to cut the working week to just 10hrs and reduce pay by 75% in order to reduce emissions and avoid further climate change (source, Metro, online).

The trouble is, it's hard to get it out of your head while speaking about the guy. This lady has my sympathy

I would think that given the politics at the BBC, this is probably the default name for him around the office and studios. Difficult to get out of the habit when on air.

Bit sexist to try deflect and blame men though, all the same. Shame on her.

Imagine the uproar from the wimmin if a man had try to blame that on a female...

Anyone hear Boris Johnson's campaign launch today to become leader of the Tory Party?  

What a lot of bluster mixed with lies and untruths...  When are the population going to wake up to people like Johnson and the lies and nonsense he spouts.

I think you'll find that they have woken up. I'm in real true-blue Tory territory, no-one has any respect for Boris.

FWIW I met a nice lady yesterday who voted for Brexit just 'to see what would happen'. Amazing...
