Avoir une emprise, Boris – mettre en place une salle de guerre et donner à chacun des ordres clairs

GET a grip Boris. Gather your loyal leadership team around you, mettre en place une salle de guerre et donner à chacun des ordres clairs.

This could yet go to a confidence vote. Start dividing your MP critics — they all have different motivations. Call out those after revenge or hating you for Brexit.

Be humble when the Sue Gray report is published. Apologise like your life depends on it. Which it does.

Prepare to clear out your top team, starting with your press machinery which should have told you to come clean about “work drinks”.

Voters may currently think you play fast and loose with the facts. But they’ll think again when you come back from the brink fighting.

Drop the “funny guy” routine. Save that for the General Election campaign. Start talking like a statesman.

Europe’s on a war footing. The country expects you to be serious. And smarten up.

Delay the National Insurance rise. Inflation and energy bills are running wild.

Start thinking like a Tory not a politician who wants to be liked. You appear to duck hard choices when it comes to controlling our borders — turn redundant prisons into detention centres.

Above all, inject new values into the way you run Downing Street, those of decency, zero tolerance of rule breaking and putting the people first.
