Boris Johnson -- a racist, sexist, homophobic lying buffoon who has been repeatedly caught out using lies to sway public opinion -- is now, incredibly, tipped to become the leader of the Conservative Party and thus the Prime Minister of the UK (this is because outgoing PM Theresa May totally bungled Brexit, and the UK's form of parliamentary democracy lets the ruling party fill the PM's seat with a vote of party members, and the British Tories have become the swivel-eyed racist loony party, and Boris is the perfect nominee for King of the Racist Swivel-Eyed Loons). One legacy of Theresa May's incompetence is the slender Conservative majority in Parliament, which only exists thanks to a tie-up with the authoritarian religious fanatics of the DUP, who had to be bought off with a one billion pound state giveaway. The situation is so fragile that a defection from even a few Conservative MPs could bring down the government with a no-confidence vote that could result in another general election being called -- with a strong possibility that Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party will form the next government. Enter the Conservative Party itself, whose membership and Parliamentary caucus are both deeply divided between run-of-the-mill bigots, oligarchs, bootlickers, virulent racists, temporarily embarrassed millionaires, colonialism larpers, misogynists, dominionists, islamophobes, homophobes, posh boys, and garden variety Little Englanders. With just a tiny bit of dissent -- three MPs -- the party could pull off that no-confidence vote, which Labour has promised to call the day after the election. Read the rest
