I don't understand why so many opposition MPs are so keen for Boris Johnson to resign as prime minister, so that he's replaced by another Conservative MP, presumably one who has until now approved of Boris Johnson's behaviour. How would some other Conservative MP be any better?
@bright_helpings I think perhaps, at least for people who aren't in politics, that's a symptom of having no ability to do anything *but* watch. So much power in this country is centralised in national government — much moreso than other countries — protected by a voting system that keeps power ping-ponging between the same 2 parties every 10-15 years.
@greytheearthling Oh that's very understandable. But it's disappointing to see opposition MPs doing it too, as you say, because they do have more power than most of us.
It's frustrating that both of these parties are so committed to clinging on to their power, not reforming the electoral system to represent us better or empower us because that'd threaten their privileged positions.
