No I can't stand Johnson. I don't have the rest of the day to list my reasons. If you think he is a true democrat who has real conviction then you are lost.

Are the people who are moaning about democracy the same people who were plotting to put Harriet Harman or Ken Clarke in No 10 just a few days ago?

"Technically he is, as the leader of the grouping which can command a majority in the Commons..."

I know, I know, I KNOW.

But I suspect you take my point.


It depends what your point is. The electorate has never directly chosen the prime minister. We vote for candidates (who normally represent a party) at constituency level. If your point is that our electoral system is ridiculous, then I agree.

Although we did have a referendum about its use in 2011. At which turnout was poor and AV was significantly voted against.

I know that was then, but it could be again..
Poll: At present who do you think you'll vote for?

Indeed. A large dose of hypocrisy from all sides.

You may not have voted to leave the eu but the majority of the electorate did! The majority of mps voted for article 52 where the default position in the law of the land is to leave on the 31st October whether with or without a satisfactory agreement!


"You may not have voted to leave the eu but the majority of the electorate did!"

That is not true, only 37% of the electorate voted to leave the EU

Which just shows how useless referendums are....

The majority of those who were bothered either way enough to vote, voted to leave.

Boris Johnson went into complete meltdown about how Brown was "unelected" in 2007 and demanded a general election forthwith as he claimed that his becoming PM was "undemocratic."

I fail to find any subject where it is possible to defend / support Johnson over what he says.


Yes I am sure that everything he says or does is wrong.

I read what you posted. Your point was irrelevant.
