I guess along with dentists, there are no barber shops in England.

Kings used to go to great efforts to disguise themselves so they could go out in public unrecognized. All Boris would need to do is comb his hair.

Peter von Nostrand: I guess along with dentists, there are no barber shops in England.


Not really.  He realized quite early on that he has no discernible personality (unless you can call clueless chimp a personality) so opted instead for an obvious physical characteristic for public recogintion.   That is the most carefully coiffured bed-head you will ever see, nothing is left to chance in creating the impression of "not caring about trivial things".

This is so true.
It is truly ironic how much effort he puts into making look like he doesn't give a shiat about trial things like his hair.

We do have abortion clinics and gunman-free schools though.

OK so I know the US is full of idiots and Nazis, but still, we also have an Electoral College that makes our elections extra sucky, so sometimes horrible people win even when they shouldn't.

Does the UK have some weird electoral device doing this as well? Or is there really just a majority of people who wanted this guy? Because I don't get it. But I also don't know much about UK political stripes.

The PM isn't elected by the people. Technically speaking it is a role appointed by the current monarch. In practice, though, the monarch appoints the leader of the majority party in Parliament.

Short version: the Tories PICKED him. And affirmed their choice in the confidence vote.

Conderpatives the world over are picking the least capable of their number to lead; it's not just an American affliction.

So the voters voted for Tories, and the Tories picked him? That's definitely more complex than a straight election, but it sounds like they knew what they were getting into when they voted.

He was already picked as party leader, so by virtue of that, when the Tories won the majority of seats at the general election, he became prime minister - technically as is the custom, he was invited by the Queen to form a government.

Basically what I was saying is that the EC has the power to overrule the will of the voters in the US. It doesn't sound like the UK has such an excuse.

They don't. Though, it is nice that the Tories experienced some pretty important losses in by-elections for rural (read: conderpative) areas. Considering Bojo the Clown survived the confidence vote by a smaller margin than Theresa May did 6 months before she ultimately resigned there's been talk of the Tories changing their whole, "safe for a year," clause for confidence votes.

Honestly, my money says he doesn't remain in the role until the next election (January 2025). Though if he does, the Conderpative party might face a pretty major loss. Liberal Democrats, Labour, and Sinn Fein will have a talking point rife with long-term bitterness to rally anti-Tory sentiment and it may actually work.
