Evidently Boris figured out how to Brexit.

Flat-Earthers seem to have a very low standard of evidence for what they want to believe but an impossibly high standard of evidence for what they don’t want to believe.

This whole week has been an utter shitshow.

Hopefully his successor will at least cancel the plan to violate the UK's international treaty obligations and restore respect for the rule of law in Britain before it loses what little credibility it has left as a world power.

I read somewhere that he could still be in place for months while the party comes up with a successor. Is that how it works?

Is there a functional government left?  It seems a good percentage just walked off the job.

Not really. Although in real life the work is mostly done by the Civil Servants who work under the ministers. Things won’t suddenly grind to a halt.

With how this government has been doing, the UK would be better off with no government at all.
