Ah, there's nothing quite as amusing as watching a Tory MP try to pretend they know what the word "conscience" means.

You had your chance to vote him out and failed... that seems to be a common theme around the world these days.

Bozo gone by midnight I'd say, when it's just him and Nadine Dorries left.

Do you ever feel embarrassed for someone else that doesn't seem to be embarrassed about what's happening? I feel that way about the UK.

With a more popular PM this never evens get mentioned, as a touch of buggery and possible noncing is just what most folks call a "Tory lunch do".

Well I hope no one outside the US assumes we aren't all very aware and very embarrassed by the way things are going here.

I am disturbed how closely behind Australia and The UK seem to be following in our footsteps.

Meanwhile, in bizarro world, one of BoJo's sycophantic knob gobblers is defending the groper, saying he was also a "victim' in all of this.  You are not going to believe this unless you see it, but here is a picture of this Tory twat who goes by the name of Michael Fabricant.

I always knew Boris Johnson would be brought down by a sexual harassment scandal. I just kind of assumed he'd be the one doing the harassing.

I wish our biggest problem with leadership is that they held some functions during a COVID lockdown.

We didn't even have a federal lockdown. They just wanted us to die and shut up.

The Pincher revelation is relatively new and, other than cutting off their own dick with Brexit, it encompasses 90+% of Brit biatching about Johnson.

Burchill: Bozo gone by midnight I'd say, when it's just him and Nadine Dorries left.


The thing is....this would be about the 12th time that a normal PM would be gone but BoJo doesn't care.

Besides, there are still plenty of assholes who aren't going to resign over this - Raab, Patel, Rees-FarkThatGuy, Truss. And, of course, since Labour and the Lib Dems have already declared him done, his chances of survival have gone up about 50% - when it's truly over, the opposition parties don't have to say anything.

All the old Torys are saying he needs to go, which would normally be the death kneel, but BoJo simply throws those sorts of Torys out of the party when they say things like that so...it's like GQP officials saying Trump is bad, but only after they leave office.

So, I dunno. By any standard he should be done, but by those same standards he should have resigned months ago - and he literally cannot be fired right now, not for almost a year, unless he decides to do something stupid and call an election right now. (They repealed the Fixed Term Parliament Act so he can do that now.)

But then again.....doing the stupid thing is usually the way to bet....so I wouldn't be completely surprised if he did call for elections right now just to spit the party for rejecting him.

Let me be clear - I don't think this will happen, this would be unbeliably stupid, but...BoJo has a track record here, so I can't rule it out.

People who live here are aware of the many, many issues with Johnson without needing to be handheld through a list. If what I said is vague and unspecific for you, it's because you don't have a farking clue what you're talking about.

read the first thing again. You are on a rant about a sentence you didn't comprehend.

You are wasting a ton of time arguing with a guy who agrees that the problems with the government are far worse. You can keep going if you want but this guy also thinks there are bigger problems with Johnson. He said so literally in his initial sentence.

That was last week but The Clown denied knowing anything about the allegations against Pincher. Then it came to light that he knew all along and had been briefed on the issue but appointed him anyway. So the issue is once again the lying. Unfortunately for Bojo that comes all too easily.
