The Home Office have stripped a Serbian born man of his British citizenship, leaving him stateless and homeless in Belgium after going on holiday, over an allegation of identity fraud.

Bureaucracy needn't be evil but the Home Office certainly loves to wallow in cruelty.

Every day for 4 years now we've been saying "well it can't be any worse can it".

So with that in mind, I am predicting the reanimated corpse of Oswald Mosley to become our new Chancellor.

Cabinet bingo predictions?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Johnson even lies about his holidays.

This stinks of corruption.

Fake news. Boris Trump took a perfect vacation. Just read the transcript, just read it!

The thing with Boris and Trump is that they end up lying over ridiculous things. Boris is also absolutely minted, why didn't he just pay for the holiday as £15k is absolute peanuts to him.

Well that’s the big question. Why wouldn’t he pay for his own holiday and why would he want to cover up who did pay for it? I think this is likely bigger than just Boris wanting a free holiday.

Maybe he was working on releasing the Russia report and so paying for the holiday slipped his mind?

Johnson seems like the kind of person who spends money as fast as he earns it. He was struggling to live off his MP pay plus column cash. I'm guessing he's worth a lot less than you'd expect.

True, but with Johnson and Raab still being there, the IQ remains in negative figures.

That’s a really interesting one. Why would he resign when he had the second most powerful job in the government?

Was told he had to sack all of his advisers. He refused and walked instead.

Bye Felicia!

He's about as useful as a chocolate teapot but I dread to think who the replacements are going to be. Mark François will probably be in the cabinet by the end of the day.
