Did you know...
That in 10 of 11 Ashes series since 1977 the next General Election has been won by the Tories if England win (7) and been won by Labour if Australia win (3). The exception is John Major’s election win in 1992 following the 4-0 drubbing in 1989. There have been no drawn series in that time.
So, with Australia 2-1 up and the final test well underway, England ain’t winning this series so history would suggest Boris is fucked. Unless he can replicate Major’s achievement (or maybe he needs a hapless leader of the opposition to help him out like Kinnock. )
