The U.K. Needs a Real Government, Not Boris Johnson’s Puppet Cabinet

Post by bindeweede »

Jenni Russell writes for The Times (UK), but here it's the New York Times.

Don't agree with her promotion of Hunt, Cameron or May, but it's a semi-respectable piece, imo.

A taster.
Mr. Johnson’s cabinet is so markedly weak, with so few politicians of intellect and experience, that the prime minister’s absence for nearly a month left an alarming void. A shifting cast of ministers stood in for him at the daily pandemic press briefings, with performances ranging from mortifying to faltering or defensive to occasionally, thankfully, competent.
