Calm thyself! It's a show.

Yes, Whiters, but I'm paying for the tickets and they're bloody expensive!

It's not just the expense. Boris and Dom might be playing a very clever game: wrong-footing opponents, creating diversions, and (with the carbon policies) even thinking strategically to protect UK industries.

But if the electorate don't see it, he will be punished. He's got to do things which are popular as well as clever. And we can't even be sure he's being clever, yet!

Bobo is probably doing the political thing; trying to consolidate power. If he can be seen as the conservative nationalist and service the welfare state and center left, there's no reason for a majority to ever vote Labour. Problem is, trying to be everything to everybody has its limits. Just ask Tony Blair.
