It does when the choice in late 2019 was between a bullsh*tter with a plan and an anti-Semitic Marxist with a promise to continue the constitutional hellhole that we’d endured for the previous 2-3 years.
Nail on head I think.

I was delighted to see the back of the rotten Parliament of 2017/2019, the odious creep Bercow and those MP’s who defected without submitting themselves to a by election.

Tavares, you’ve supported the ‘perennial bullshitter’ for 5 years now, so how can you be sure that ‘levelling up’ is not yet more codswallop ? If it is, would you continue to support him ?

I know he ‘got it done’ and all that, but your support is not unconditional, is it ?

Pretty easy to get it done if you're just going to agree to any old thing, with the intention of later not doing any of what you've agreed to and demanding it be renegotiated. I bet Theresa May is kicking herself for trying to do a deal in good faith, when she should have just lied her way through it.

…..a bullsh*tter with a plan….
Not according to Classic Dom, who’s now on the record as saying the bullshitter has no plan, he’s winging it.

Who to believe, Tav, eh ? Doesn’t matter though, they can rely on your support regardless. 😂

It strikes me the same folks who tried to question the moral and intellectual fibre of the average Brexit voter, are continuing that tactic with those who support BJ in this post Brexit era. It didn’t work then, I don’t suppose it’ll work this time.
Most voters realise BJ is a perennial bullsh*tter and vote for him anyway.
Mostly, I think you're right with this. Let's just hope the PM can deliver a little of what's expected by the country.

In an ideal world he would be able to stop some of the partisanship between the "sides" but I think that's a pipe dream at the moment.

Like a lot of the electorate now i’ll judge him (and the rest) at the next GE and vote accordingly.

This is the crux of Brexit. Johnson and Frost were desperate to agree a deal by the deadline date, to sell to the electorate and say they had got things done, which they successfully (?) did. The Northern Ireland and North Sea Border were trade problems that were clear at the time, with minimal chance of successful resolution. With hindsight, we should have expected that Johnson and Frost would revert to type, and simply ignore the deal they agreed and signed, once the trade problems became clear.

Of course, these issues will be solved and our economy saved, once past the pandemic, by the fantastic trade deals Truss will arrange and Johnson will sign......although if I was a Country negotiating with the current Government, I'd make sure the agreements were legally tight, before completing. It will be interesting to read the details of any trade deal we make with the US, to see who the net benefactor is and what the impact will be on our agriculture and trade sectors.
