Pity the poor English voter
The result of the UK election shows how poor the political situation is in the UK
English voters only had two realistic options – vote for Johnson who many have said is arrogant and untrustworthy, or for Corbyn who wanted to take the country back to the Dark Ages.
How Corbyn can say he will remain to draw up a way forward for his party puzzles me – isn’t there such a thing as a “Vote of No Confidence” in the Labour Party?
But voters in Scotland and Northern Ireland did have other options and took them by voting for their parties that want to leave the Union, almost certainly because of their lack of trust in Johnson.
Still, Johnson might become a changed man?!
