A recent interview – and indeed Johnson’s entire career – suggest the man has no clue how to achieve Brexit:

Johnson has now released a plan. A plan that people immediately recognised…

Blow the bloody doors off

The edited Brexit plan is clearly edited from the Italian Job Wikipedia page. It reads:

Read on...

Boris Johnson is released from being Mayor of London and meets up with Michael Gove, the lackey of his friend and fellow nice chap Rupert Murdoch, who has been killed by red tape while hacking dead women’s phones in Fleet Street. Gove gives Johnson his boss’s plans for the Brexit that attracted the hostile attention of Euro-twats, which details a way to steal a great deal in the city of Brussels…

The rest of the gang, having sneaked out of the EU in a red bus while disguised as politicians, rendezvous with the coach in Brussels. On the absolutely flat roads, driver “Big” Nigel loses control of the coach. The back of the bus is left teetering over a small ditch and the Brexit slides towards the rear doors. As Johnson attempts to reach the Brexit, it slips further. The plan finishes on a literal cliffhanger with Johnson announcing: “Hang on a minute chaps, I’ve got a great idea”.

Typically – Johnson chose to rip off a plan that ends without getting to the plan part.

The Eton Job

Johnson hasn’t actually denied plagiarising the summary. When asked about it, he just sort of mumbled for 25 minutes. He then excused himself and walked into what turned out to be a broom closet.

So definitely PM material, then.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
