I’m by no means deeply interested in UK politics, but I am getting quite a bit of enjoyment watching the slow, grinding process by which the Tories are scraping the Boris barnacle from their hull. He sure is a tenacious fucker, I’ll give him that. The latest from the Guardian live feed is that the cabinet ministers are in No 10 waiting for him to arrive, that they’ll resign en masse if he doesn’t quit, and that Boris has arrived. Nobody thinks he’s going to last the rest of the day, but I’m sure not betting against him.
Edited to add: Keir Starmer’s remarks at question time this morning, and Boris’ shambolic responses, are worth a watch. (They’re at the top of this story.)
