Can someone fill me in on what the heck is happening over there?


Tory MPs decided to side with and be led by the nose by the sacked spin doctor Dominic Cummings and effectively held a coup against Boris Johnson urged on by the press , as per the rules Tory party member get to Vote on the two candidates picked by the party following a run off , Tory party members either didn't want an Asian billionaire PM or were fooled into believing Liz Truss was a suitable candidate lead the country in the face of all of the evidence to the contrary , unsurprisingly Liz Truss got sacked.

If Tory MPs get to vote for the next leader we will get Rishi Sunak , if they put it to the membership again Johnson will likely return making this the craziest political farce in British history.

The first half of this farce is over now get your popcorn for the second half.

How's that?

We vote for the governing party, not the PM.

He/she is not a President because we are not a Republic.

You American?

I understand that Biden is a dementia ridden paedophile bent on ruining the US, by all accounts, apparently.

Is he still there?

My apologies if I'm wrong and you are not American.

No offense intended.

Ummm...well...somebody's got to keep you Islanders in line...thank you very much...I mean...with my Ainglish name...Ya'll are like second cousins...or something...

It does provide some churlish amusement to poke and prod...

Just imagine we're in a pub...if any still exist...and there's pints to be quaffed...just keep the haggis and blood pudding back of the bar...

It has nothing to do with Brexit at all - that should have been all done and dusted a long time ago.

Its down to incompetent career politicians more concerned with self-advancement and self-aggrandisement, party politics and pandering to a broken system that is no longer fit-for-purpose.

If we had politicians of conviction and with integrity we wouldn't be in this #ing mess.

Didn't some American posters on here have some reservations about the validity of their last election?

I'm sure I have read that somewhere on here?

Johnson is still under investigation for misleading The House.

He shouldn't even be allowed to stand.

It did crop up a couple of times.

Yes, once or twice, but I expect they've long since gotten over it

Well, poking and prodding cousins can be frowned upon so there is a that.


As to pints and pubs, things keep going the way they are over here people might not be able to afford a pint soon.

Now that really would be tragic.

Haggis and black pudding are actually really nice if you can manage to forget what's in them, kind of like hotdogs in that department i suppose.

I disagree , he had a mandate from the British people and won a vote of confidence in the House , his removal and replacement voted on by a small group of people was undemocratic , if had happened in a Third World country the government would have complained.
He has every right to stand and if chosen every right to continue with the mandate given to him by the electorate.


1922 Committee chairman Sir Graham Brady earlier said the "expectation" was that party members would still be involved, but it is likely this will take place electronically.

Although I think a fix against Johnson may already be in the offering , expectation and "involved" leaves a lot of wriggle room.

"Ummm...Andy...whose shaking from the cold already...mind you...used the term..."cockwomble"..."

Did he?

You'll have to excuse him, I believe he's Scottish.

I also disagree.

If Johnson is re elected PM and then found guilty of misleading The House, then he will have to resign yet again.

The mess will then just continue until we have a GE.

A General Election is the only way to sort this out , of course the Tories will lose but after 12 years it is time for a change.

The politicians will just turn out the street lights so they can't see us and say it's just a way to save electricity!
