Boris Johnson fires and hires ministers on first day as UK PM

New UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson no sooner took office on Wednesday when he fired a long line of ministers who had served his predecessor, Theresa May, especially opponents of a no-deal Brexit and supports of his rival for prime minister Jeremy Hunt. Before the end of the day, he had filled three key cabinet posts: Sajid Javid as finance minister, Dominic Raab as foreign secretary and Priti Patel as minister of interior. Hunt was offered defense or foreign affairs but declined and resigned from government.

      England like the rest of Europe will eventually kiss the US tush when they need to be saved. History repeats itself. Maybe next time my country should just say no, defend yourselves, or….. pay us lots of money up front!

    This almost looks like one of those things where you pour yourself a large soft drink, . . . pop a big bowl of popcorn, . . . grab an easy chair, . . . and watch the fun.

    Got to be more interesting than anything since Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair.

    Stay tuned, . . . the show is just now starting.
