As he plunges the country into chaos, Boris Johnson thinks the royals need a new yacht

The UK is just over three weeks away from the great uncertainity of leaving the EU on 31 October. And, given the reaction of the Irish government and the EU to Boris Johnson’s ‘two-border’ exit proposal, you could be forgiven for thinking the Tories aren’t taking this seriously. Or maybe they’re simply out of touch. Politicians that care about people would see the urgency to bring about change. But Boris Johnson takes a different approach.

Let them have yachts

And if we needed further evidence of that we can see it in Johnson’s current plan to spend £300m on yachts. He’s hatching this plan with Penny Mordaunt MP, who he sacked from his cabinet, to buy two £150m yachts. The plan is for the royal family to use these yachts for overseas travel and to help with relief efforts.

A country in crisis

People in the UK are already under severe strain and finding it difficult to make ends meet. The UN has had to warn the UK about this. But instead of working hard to reverse this suffering, Johnson plans to spend money on yachts so the royal family can travel around the world.

An angry response

When people heard about this, they were understandably angry, and they weren’t shy about expressing it:

One person suspected an ulterior motive for the gift to the royals:

While another person pointed out a very obvious place where this money should be spent:

One man responded in sheer disbelief:

No more evidence needed

And it’s not just the purchase of these two yachts that makes Johnson unsuitable for office. It’s also his record as a politician, a journalist, and on race that proves he’s unfit to hold any office or role that carries responsibility or authority. So he has no regard for the British people or the truth. Just resign.

    1. I don’t think he’ll resign his fantasy of living in the time of Sir Francis Drake when his ships were outfitted in the best that England had to offer to impress the natives who knew nothing about who these people were.
      Today nearly anyone has the internet for news.
      I don’t think to simply consider his resignation is adequate. An extemeophile politician who has cowed the Tory party, and parliament into submission against everything one considers to be rational deserves special attention than simply to “resign”.
      He’s special, and apparantly was a a genius when working as a journalist according to what I’ve seen in print.
      I don’t know about that publication’s sanity……. either.
      He looks to be a case for special treatment by the voters to decide upon, if they are ever to be heard from soon.
      Where is Bedlam?
      What is a No Deal Brexit really?
      Vote again on it??
