Who of the last 3 prime ministers was the worst? Watch
Although Johnson's premiership had been a complete car crash to date, it's too early to completely damn him.
That Conservatives believed Johnson or May would make good leaders seriously brings into question their ability to think straight.
David Cameron was the one who ****ed this whole thing up in the first place.
Johnson has shown his true colours. He is all toffy bluster and no substance and has been shown repeatedly to lie.
I always wonder what it would be like to be prime minister, simply because you can't please anyone and it must be so stressful. Nobody can run the country to everyone's satisfaction ... safe to say they all gave it a shot at what they thought best for the country.
Boris term isn't over yet, and a lot of it will come down to the coming election. If he regains a tory majority, then all the events of the last few months will be remembered as brilliant game-playing by him and his team... if he looses or remains without a majority, all his tricks and games will look cheap and childish at best. If he looses he will certainly go down as the worst PM that I have lived through. But if he wins, the book is still open, and hes already ahead of may, whose biggest achievement was to not-loose an election to Corbyn.
So that leaves it out of May and Cameron.
Cameron for the most part was ok.. he was a PR primeinister which annoyed me, but he steered the country reasonably competantly through a difficult time. For every policy I like of his, there is another I disagree with, but nothing to major happened. Whether you hate him or not really depends on whether you think the nation needed austerity. Obviously he ****ed up badly at the end with his refernedum, but he can still look back and say that he got most of what he wanted done, and did make some real change.
May on the other hand had one job and failed at it. I can't think of anything positive to say. She cocked up an election badly, and then cocked up Brexit even worse. She showed no competancy as a leader throughout her time, and I think the fact that she was the leader for such a short time, and has been followed by Boris and his antics, is the only saving grace for her.. that she may easily be forgotten.
Nothing major happened? Did you miss the part where he completely ****ed an entire country? And then apparently not satisfied with his mess he decided to try **** up another two countries?
to be fair to him, and blair before him... they were just following orders. When we have a priminister who can actually say no to the americans, then maybe we will have a comparison to judge them against.
Its not so much intervening military that is the problem. The problem is that everytime they do so, they go in without a plan. In Libya they just waltzed in toppled the government and then waltzed right back out. If you're going to go in, then you have to commit to it and think it through.
