it's late. Let things now fall where they fall.

Let's hope one is Johnson.

Comparisons with first half of 16th Century English political history are not overt any more.

The Godfather is Mario Puzo masterpiece...... Francis Ford Coppola certainly brought the novel to the screen, however the Corleone dynasty is all Puzo work....And I am a little mystified to the connection politically to UK leaving the European Union.

Boris Johnson may have mulled over the subject matter, however my English Grandfather does a competent impression of Marlon Brando, Don Corleone despite a gob stuffed full of cotton wool.

Does that make Grandad anymore relevant to assess UK withdrawal, I don't think so.

My father (99) is heart-broken. He went up that beach in Normandy 75 years ago to help start making Europe (and the world) including the UK a better place. Now certain politicians are going into reverse. A Godfather (Boris) nemesis is needed.

"'The Godfather' seems to be the favorite film of modern history's most brutal figures, including Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gadhafi and others,

It seems to be the favorite film of millions of people.

My father (99) is heart-broken. He went up that beach in Normandy 75 years ago to help start making Europe (and the world) including the UK a better place. Now certain politicians are going into reverse. A Godfather (Boris) nemesis is needed.

Your father might be heart-broken because of how the UK went from Churchhill to Teresa May.

UK politicians need to take back their country from the EU globalists.
