Has the gig, voted in by 0.2% of the population.
Heaven help us from this racist, moronic buffoon.
He now rules over piccannies with watermelon smiles, Muslims dressed as letterboxes looking like bank robbers, and has told too many lies to list.
Being PM is better on his CV than being fired from 2 jobs for lying, or arranging for a journalist to be beaten up.
Luckily , many Tories hate him enough to quit the party and cross the house.
This could be an exciting week in politics .

Cool

It is often said "that a country gets the government that it deserves"...

With 'BJ' promising to bring Britain to its knees and drive it headlong even deeper into recession, those fuckwit ultra-conservative true believers on here who have been cheering on both the Dumpster's and BJ's bigoted antics over recent weeks should be over the moon today..

Maybe someone could lay out the actual political powers of the PM for me. Because if he has a lot of sway, it's really fucked up that he's not subject to a popular vote.

He will surround himself with wealthy cronies and buddies. He is in thrall of Murdoch and wealthy Bullingdon bankers. They are the chosen elite and consider themselves as rightful leaders and running the country is their destiny by birthright.
There ARE a few honourable Conservatives who will do the right thing and follow their conscience across to the other side of the house.
The effect of this will be to lose Boris his slender majority..Corbyn is poised to seize the opportunity to call for a vote off no confidence in the government,..
If successful, there is a strong likelihood of a general election, possibly with 2 or 3 months..


The cronyism has started already.

Arrow

Under the Westminster Parliamentary system,  as practiced in Britain, Australia, Canada, NZ, India, Ireland and some other former colonies,  the 'Prime Minister' is the leader of the parliamentary party in control, elected by the members of that party...

While not elected by the public during the general election, the public still knows who is likely to be PM at the time of the election --  if the broader public is unhappy with the PM they get, they can vote out the entire party at the next election if he's bad enough..

Fortunately, a Prime Minister doesn't have anywhere near as wide a range of powers as the American prez' does.  Also, the PM's "cabinet" comprises the 'front benchers' in the House of Representatives --  it is not a seperate "executive office" like the White House in the USA.

The Prime Minister gets to choose Cabinet Ministers. The Chancellor of the Exchequer, The Home Secretary, The Foreign Secretary etc... are all appointed by the PM, and can be dismissed by the PM. Every major office of state and every minor office is therefore expected to follow the lead of the PM. Their plans and their policies are all going to be those favoured or agreed on by the PM.

They don't have the massive power of a Presidential Veto or Executive Order; but they are at the top of the actual government. They can also enforce a parliamentary whip to ensure all party MPs are forced to vote for a particular government proposal (this is also a power the leader of the opposition has with his/her party - but as a minority of parliament that doesn't make it nearly as powerful as whipping 326+ MPs).

I'm going to be positive about this. Boris says he's going to energise the country. I don't know how he's going to do that, but it certainly needs it. Everyone over the age of 16 seems to be walking around looking exhausted. Laughing

Even Boris has no clue how he going to do it.
He wings it every time and is a bluffing sheister.
Most who back him have been suckered.

He is a clowning , dangerous idiot.

I'd rather have Boris Johnson in number 10, than Jeremy Corbyn...


And I hope boris reinstates David Davis to carry on with the great repeal bill and getting us out the EU... and this time he is not undermined in the way he was by Teresa May's secret group of remainers being sent into negotiate separately...

Why don’t we sit back and see what happens? I mean, everyone started frothing at the mouth when Trump said he’d build a wall.

It hasn’t really happened, has it?

Let’s stop taking politics so seriously. Half the time they’re just egotistical big mouths who change their minds. Rather like a lot of humans.

The hot air from the Sahara has blown into 10 Downing Street.
And it emerged from Johnson's mouth.

Thing is eddie... politicians are elected on the basis of what they promised they were going to do when in power, when they were running for election and according to their election manifestos...


It is only 2 years since the last general election... so although Boris has taken over as new leader of the governing party and become prime minister, the tory party should still be delivering on the manifesto promises that got them elected in 2017...


And need I remind you that something like 86% of mps elected in 2017 were promising to respect the EU referendum result and deliver BREXIT...!?
