the Johnson Premiership so far:

day one: Johnson loses his first vote in parliament, loses his majority as a Tory MP literally walks over to the opposition bench in the middle of a debate, and then sacks 21 more Tories (including 2 former chancellors and Winston Churchill’s grandson)

day 2: Johnson loses another vote which means he’s legally not allowed to leave the EU without a deal, he then loses his third vote in a row meaning he can’t call a general election.

An MP yells at him in parliament for being a racist which was pretty great, and he completely screws up at PMQs.

MPs also accidentally pass the Kinnock amendment, meaning they’ll probably be voting on Theresa May’s deal for the fourth time.

day 3: (so far) his own brother resigns as an MP because fuck family loyalty

I dismissed this as satire for a sweet peaceful second …….

Their ‘reasoning’ for raising the pension age was because people are living longer. But with austerity we’re now dying younger. So you aren’t gonna get a nice retirement, you’ll be working til you’re dead.

…The Scottish male life expectancy is 77. Female life expectancy a bit higher at 81. Hope everyone’s looking forward to their 2-6 years retirement!

I want to make a flippant joke about Boris Johnson being PM but actually I’m just livid that a racist, lying, cheating, backstabbing blancmange of a man with the spine of a blobfish and the conscience of a discarded teatowel is about to become our unelected PM.

This is the same man whose list of racist comments is longer than his list of qualifications. The man who was fired from his columnist job for falsifying quotes. Who’s lied and cheated his way to the highest office in the country. And all in the name of democracy, apparently.
