Regarding Boris Johnson's first day as prime minister, I commented: Boris Johnson Meets the Queen then Cleans House: 10 Sacked, 4 Quit, 2 Retired.

The much-needed house cleaning continued today.

In addition, Johnson laid into Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. This Thatcherite speech sums up wonderful day number two for the new prime minister.

Key Moment

"He [Jeremy Corbyn] speaks about trust in our democracy. I have to say that a most extraordinary thing has just happened today. Did anybody notice? Did anybody notice the terrible metamorphosis that took place, like the final scene of Invasion of the Bodysnatchers? At last, this longstanding Eurosceptic, the right honourable gentleman, has been captured. He has been jugulated, he has been reprogrammed by his honourable friends. He has been turned now into a remainer! Of all the flip-flops that he has performed in his tergiversating career, that is the one for which I think he will pay the highest price."

Thatcherite Speech

That is precisely the kind of delivery that Theresa May never executed in her life.

Those in the US might appreciate this Baseballish translation.

It might be, it could be, it is, a Johnson home run. Holy Cow.
