[about this site]

Fact: Johnson is still Prime Minister of the country, despite public opinion, despite the voter polling results, despite the parliamentary criticism, despite the condemnation even within the Conservative Party and the highest levels of Government.

Quote: "I will be leaving soon with my head held high ... and I am also proud of the leadership that I have given." — what a characteristically disgraceful lack of awareness. <sigh>

Opinion: The decisions about the legality of abortion in the USA are not necessarily cause for despair: now, the citizens of each state can be motivated to elect the representatives who can make the laws as they wish. Don't like the law in your state? then vote for somebody who will change them. Feel like your state's current laws are under threat? then vote for somebody who promises to protect them. Make your representatives take a stand, and vote accordingly.
