Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, first sacking Johnson from his PM slot, and then sacking Corbyn from his PM-in-waiting slot.

I was originally thinking that the unwritten British constitution could be ok, because a problem in the US is that our constitution is too inflexible. But many of the current British problems about choosing leadership seem to go back to the haziness of the rules.

For example, if the queen is just a functionary of parliament, and required to do whatever the PM asks, as was claimed when she didn't push back on the proroguing thing, then how on Earth can she be in a position to sack anybody? "The queen must blindly and silently do whatever the PM says, up to the point where she decides fire him at will." That makes no sense.
