Now bojo finally is stepping up will [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liz_Truss[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liz_Truss replace him ? 

bojo believed he was a reincarnation of Winston Churchill...truss thinks she is a reincarnation of thatcher...Of course we still have "Napoleon" macron in France...maybe someone could tell scholz in Germany that he is German P.M. ....

Here in NL rutte still sticking around even most people are totally fed up with him....The US has the "biden-disaster"....

The REAL reason that Johnson is being ousted has to do with his government's response to Ukraine, the Sanctions imposed upon Russia, and how those economic sanctions have now backfired on the UK and on Europe as a whole.

The Sanctions against Russia are making it impossible for Europe to buy natural gas and without it, their economies cannot continue operating. As gas supplies in storage begin to run out, electric generation will have to shut down, and thus business cannot go on.   Unemployment will skyrocket exponentially and countries will collapse.

We await the official announcement that Boris Johnson has resigned, and also await word on who is likely to replace him.  6:40 AM EDT, July 7, 2022

I got a call from BBC Question Time months ago for a pre-interview so they could decide to have me on or not. When asked about Johnson & why I thought he'd failed so badly on pandemic response, I said 'he's a narcissistic sociopath'.... needless to say I didn't get called after!

Just reflecting on how obvious that was even at the time, but so few people on the media were willing to say it. This govt should've gone ages ago, if we had a media and opposition that was holding them to account.

Lies, lies and more lies right till the end. You didn't deliver the 'fastest vaccine roll out in Europe'. Our pandemic policy was utter failure. You delivered 197,000 covid deaths, 2 million people living with long COVID, mass disruption to society, long-term health & economy.

DJ Genocide by pandemic ...bojo should not get away with all his crimes...from the Ukraine war-killing tens-of-thousends of Ukrainians...to "freedom-day" starting a viral-mutation-escalation...

The bad news is "politics so far did not learn"...liz truss in Moscow acting like she was tatcher leaves no room for any improvement...a bit like replacing biden with h.clinton is not helpfull...

At least "something is moving"....

As expected, since mitigations and testing dropped, we've seen continuous excesses in mortality since mid-April in England- with between 1000-1,800/wk for the 3 wks leading up to 24th June. A large proportion of this is being driven by increase in mortality at home.

"Well done bojo"....

DJ...

It must play on Johnson's mind. He knows his chief record as prime minister will be lies, criminality and temper tantrums. But he must also know that in the years to come, the 'big calls' he got right - covid and Brexit - will also be seen as total disasters.

and

In a wider perspective, this is the most extraordinary thing A general election mandate and a substantial majority are the greatest gifts the the UK constitution can bestow on a PM And he trashed it

The British public gave Boris Johnson an 80-seat majority. He has completely wasted that gift. No wonder he's furious.

DJ, "Brexit" "Putin did it"...if Scotland would vote for getting rid of bojo...blame Putin...of course replacing bojo by another sociopath further damages any trust in politics...

This never-ending pandemic, with never-ending wars...created by the west, worsening climate disasters...It is more then welcome bojo is gone...but much more-better leadership-is urgently needed...We already are in a major political crisis....

In response to the news, the pound jumped 0.5% against the dollar, from $1.193 to a high of $1.199 in a modest relief rally, as investors reacted positively to Johnson’s expected resignation.

Finally, those curious who will be the next UK PM, betting service Ladbrokes has Ben Wallace at the head of the betting to replace Johnson. Rishi Sunak and Penny Mordaunt are second and third favorite.

Ministers and aides, forty-one within twenty-four hours, have left his sinking ship. As for Johnson himself, he is spending his last days or hours rearranging the deckchairs with only the last yes-men by his side. The unsinkable Titanic is starting to go down. Let the band play. The Titanic is sinking. If you are a rat, get off now.

DJ...this pandemic is political....Why did so many people end up getting this .... in power ?








The PM has made the right decision. The Government under Boris's leadership had many achievements - delivering Brexit, vaccines and backing Ukraine. We need calmness and unity now and to keep governing while a new leader is found.

or why she will be next...? (I think she may think of herself as being PM already...)

Boris Johnson has announced he will resign, which means there will now be a leadership election to decide who becomes the next Conservative leader and prime minister.

They will have to secure the backing of Tory MPs, with the final two candidates going to a ballot of Conservative members. But who are the potential candidates?

Remember, most of these MPs and ministers have not yet said whether they want the job of Tory leader and PM - but they are the ones to watch.

DJ link has more info on candidates and procedures....bojo stepped down as partyleader...still hoping to stay on as PM till party provides a follow-up in autumn...?  (The longer bojo hangs on the more damage he does to the UK....).

GO-Go bojo go !

Johnson may try to get someone elected who would look worse in office than he did. Liz Truss is a good candidate for that.

The process will be, as usual, a very dirty business - knives will be out to backstab certain candidates, deals will be made, favors will be promised and not be hold, people will be lied to.   

It may be that a new leader will change Britain's political direction towards a more sane one, at least with regard to sanctions:

George Szamuely @GeorgeSzamuely - 10:43 UTC · Jul 7, 2022

The "Putin brought down Johnson" theme isn't gaining traction, even though there is some truth to it. Johnson's disastrous and unnecessary intervention in Ukraine has helped trigger the economic crisis that has brought him down.

Then again we might see more of the same:

Putin must fail.

But I doubt though that we will see any change in the British backing of Ukraine's Zelensky as the pressure to do that comes from Washington DC.

On February 28, five days after the start of the war in Ukraine, I made a prediction:

The final intent of this economic war is regime change in Russia.

The likely consequence will be regime change in many other countries.

Boris is only the first of many to fall over the steep price increases the 'western' sanctions on Russia have caused.

And lets not forget the Assad curse which can now count another entry on its already long casualty list:

Boris Johnson calls Assad a 'monster' who needs 'decapitating'Sky News, Apr 18, 2017

So its bye bye Boris. I hope I will never hear again of you.


DJ...of course bojo could decide "not to go" delaying the process..."the country needs him" etc....

It's all happening in the UK isn't it? I did read an article last night suggesting that Teresa May may be asked to sit in as a caretaker prime minister while the leadership battle gets fought. She's not interested in running for PM herself but she is the most qualified person to step in temporarily as she's a serving, elected member of parliament who has been PM before.

Theresa May could not even be the worst choice...Let me be honest-politics is "dirty work" not something I would like to be doing....

Another question several commetators ask; who is next ? Draghi-unelected in Italy...Macron-France..Scholz in Germany, Rutte in NL or Biden in the US...they ALL made a total mess of lots of things...

Bojo did not have to go "only" for "party gate", or placing "friends" in high positions they should not be in....

Both CoViD, a worsening healthcrisis, and the economic collapse because of the NATO expansionism wars against Russia are undermining the political elite position...

Replacing bad leaders by other bad ones only worsening the -exploding- political crisis the west now is facing...

"Our" economic future the coming years may be like "the big depression" after the 1929 financial crash...however since we also have the health (CoViD, aging) crisis and a climate crisis...did live on credit for decades...in fact the perspective for most of the west could be even worse...

There is already a foodcrisis, serious water problems...infrastructure breaking up...maintenance costs becoming impossible...So-we had a good time behind us...worse times in front of us...

Could Boris Johnson be tagged as the next Secretary General of NATO? That's what a somewhat surprising new report in The Telegraph suggests, indicating that "Ukrainian and Tory MPs support idea of PM being a possible candidate, though sceptics suggest he would likely be greeted with a French veto."

Jens Stoltenberg, who has been NATO chief since 2014, is expected to step down when his current term ends in September 2023. The recently scandal-plagued Johnson, perhaps looking to distract the public and media from the so-called "Partygate" ordeal at home, has already in six months of war visited Ukraine twice - and remains among the most outspoken hawkish Western leaders in frequently voicing condemnation of Russia and Vladimir Putin.
