…which is why it's pretty damn depressing that I can only bring myself to award the former Prime Minister a very generous 4 out of Number 10.

I'm going to give the new bloke the benefit of the considerable doubt for the time being. But, Buddha Almighty, can you believe we actually managed to land ourselves a PM with even less charisma than John Major? I mean, this is a guy who uses words like steadfast, resolute and aspirations in his first speech as our leader. Where the hell does he think he is? In some Dickensian novel?
Mind you, after the last chap, boring might be just what we need at the moment.
