So Boris Johnson watered down the ministerial code to the point where only the Prime Minister can effectively remove the Prime Minister.
I totally saw this coming but everyone kept saying he was finished.
That’ll learn you lot about so-called “value neutral systems.” The whole point of being a tyrannical politician is that there’s no process that they’ll willingly submit themselves to… because they are tyrannical.
@theauracle is the only other method of removal, now, somehow getting a by-election in the constituency he is elected to represent?
@athairbirb Not according to the way the ministerial code has been rewritten. As long as the prime minister is prime minister, the only vote of confidence that matters is the prime minister’s.
@theauracle right? The Westminster system already had some big holes, and people placed too much trust in “convention” (as we have done in the US too). Write shit down clearly and restrict power.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
