    Looking forward to those choice 'Prince Phillip' gaffe moments when he finally becomes PM. A great emerging political scene is a possibility, Soviet style dinosaurs on one side and positive Britain loving Boris on the other, hopefully with Mogg as speaker. :-)

    “In his speech, he praised Theresa May's “steadfast” leadership over Europe.”

    Backstab in 10...9...8...

    As Ceasar found out politics is all about backstabbing. For the greater good of course...

    That example didn't turn out so well though, did it? They killed Caesar to save the Roman Republic, and ended up bringing about the Roman Empire instead.

    Not that that's a problem for Boris, since he does things strictly for the greater good of Boris.

    DT, you should read the Cicero Trilogy, very entertaining.

    Sounds interesting, maybe I'll try it. I've read plenty of other books set in Rome though, it was pretty cool when I visited to see so many places and things I'd heard about and references to people I'd learned about from books.

    Then you will want to read Pompeii. The trilogy based on Cicero's writings.

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?
