The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a constitutional monarchy without a constitution.  Discuss.

Bojo is a short, smelly version of Donald Trump. With a lower IQ and worse hair.

I mean, I think it's been clear for literal decades that the UK is gonna end up as a totalitarian state.

Something there's a reason that dystopian fiction in Britain has such similar futures.

Blimey! Them gormless Whitehall prats had bloody well better do something about that jiggery-pokery rubbish, innit?

/yes, I butchered that

The actual reasoning is so nakedly obvious it's sad.

Investigative Journalist: "Hey what's up I found all this proof that you did sketchy shiat! What do you have to say?"

Human Thumb in a suit: "Ur under arrest! 😡😡😡😡"

Wait till this backfires when one of their own leaks some damaging documents to the press and the journalist tells everyone who gave it to them.

Yes, but BoJo deliberately makes his hair look like that.

Trump thinks his hair looks good.

casual disregard: Even your official governmental posts sound scary. "Home Office" indeed.

We've got one of those just around the corner:

Priti Patel is scary/crazy. She's Stephen Miller, but with actual power. She's evil incarnate.

Yup. They've had right-wingers at the reins for too long, so unless there's a radical change, they'll end up doing the same shiat all right-wing-dominated governments do if given enough time.

The UK was already a villain. They're just reverting to their original form.

This is what happens when you let a bunch of closeted homosexual public school boys run the government and the intelligence services.  With D notices, Official Secrets Act (clause redacted) and public interest  immunity orders, you poor schmucks never stood a chance.

A very polite dictatorship that cuts the crust off their sandwiches.

I'm an excellent driver: A very polite dictatorship that cuts the crust off their sandwiches.


Correction; that has the help cut the crusts cut off their sandwiches for them. Later on there will be tea and a selection of biscuits.

If you're staying there may even be lashing & lashings of ginger beer. And lashings.

\biscuits, not cookies this side of the pond

It's almost as if people in power, who one can assume are also very wealthy, don't want the masses to know what they're doing. Especially if those activities involve them increasing their wealth and consolidating their power. It's a real chin scratcher.

Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand, have got eyes on this matter.

Reluctantly in his defence, I'd say Johnson is a lot more intelligent than Trump.

BoJo also actually went to a good school.
