Any cabinet minister who did not support him in the leadership campaign are out which shows pettiness not leadership on Johnson's behalff.

He has given senior roles to people with little experience.
But didn't they all resigned?
If you can name someone with MORE experience then please do

Out of 17 departures the majority were sacked, with relatively fewer having resigned. Perhaps the biggest shock was Penny Mordaunt's removal from Secretary of State for Defence after having supported Jeremy Hunt for the top job.

Something a child would do in the school playground. Penny is very competent and should have been given the opportunity to make the UK prosper.

Good article. For Boris, it wasn't about Brexit. It was all about becoming PM. Brexit was just a vehicle to that end. Now that he's usurped that position, he needs to lock it in.

Like Trump, he's a proven cheat and liar. He'll do or say anything to retain power.

It's not democracy to have Boris Johnson as PM - there should be another General Election A.S.A.P

The last election meant that the Conservative Party formed the govt. We never vote for a PM the leader of the largest party becomes PM.

I would prefer a People's Vote to a GM. If we have an election then we will almost certainly have a hung parliament with a Tory/Brexit Party coalition.

Better to have a GE after we leave the EU or there is a public vote to stay in. Then the one man band that is the Brexit Party will hopefully no longer exist. Though if (a big if I know) there was a People's vote and we remain in the EU the Brexit Party will live on.

Yes, he's only ever been interested in being PM. Brexit is merely the vehicle he is using to get there.
