These are disturbing times. Forget about the ongoing disaster that is climate change, and disasters such as Trump and Brexit. Let’s focus for a moment on the buttock-clenching mini-disaster that is the UK’s Conservative Party’s odyssey to choose their next leader – who will also become the UK’s next Prime Minister.
They will almost certainly choose the unremittingly dreadful Boris Johnson, but frankly, the field of candidates that they have to choose from is pretty dire. The one candidate who appears slightly different is Rory Stewart.
However, if you look at his voting record in Parliament, it is nothing to write home about. Ash Sarkar nails it.
In short – people in the UK, you’re doomed. We are all going to suffer the consequences.
