This is just where the world’s politics is right now.
An embarrassing bumblefuck of a Foreign Secretary has to go on Fox News, the ‘racist uncle’ of television news networks, to try and convince a walking disaster of a man-child that the US currently reluctantly calls its President to stay in the Iran nuclear deal, a crucially important diplomatic arrangement.
Oh sure, let’s give the disastrous monster even more things to fuck up!
It can no longer be denied that the Tories have a deeply-rooted pathological and ideological hatred of our nation’s health service and want it actively destroyed, burned, sold off in chunks like scrap and the land it occupied salted for the rest of time.
Oh, and Boris Johnson is still Foreign Secretary. Because of course he is.
You know… I kind of want Boris Johnson to be Prime Minister.
I mean, I want him to be it in the same dark and twisted, masochistic way that some part of my brain wanted Donald Trump to become President: Because I know the resulting catastrophic shitshow would be at least kind of hilarious to laugh at and relentlessly mock in the brief moment of time before it fucking kills us all.

Because the only thing we can ever trust Theresa May on is that defending her own position of power is always more important to her than anything else.
