The world has gone mad, or at least the UK part has.

It's sort of a replay of what we went through with our last Liberal government here.

I'm not too sure about your location, but I'm in the UK.
As to the date, unless we've landed in a time warp (again) it is well past 6th January.

Any PM that looses so many ministers in one go really should leave via the door before someone forces him to leave by an closed door or window...

Gone...

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has agreed to resign, his office said Thursday, ending an unprecedented political crisis over his future that has paralyzed Britain's government.


43 ministers resigned. Should have been capped at 42 in my opinion. :^)

Going, but not yet gone. He's resigned as leader of the Conservative Party, but he remains Prime Minister.

That's not viable, after everyone has lost trust in him. There's more to come on this one.

Next step is a conversation with Her Royal Britannic Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
I doubt that will be a comfortable one for him.

As long as Hunt or Patel don't take over, the country might have a chance to recover.
However, I feel that the West is in for a tough decade ahead.
As I said in the Ukraine thread, the situation only emboldens the likes of Putin to give us the bird.
Unfortunately it's the "unwashed masses & sheeple" that pay the price while the punks in authority continue with their "Champers & Caviar".

If anyone had any empathy, they would really be dismayed at what they are witnessing.
