The integrity of the Uk leadership process is flawed because the emerging winner will become prime minister simply because enough Mps have voted for them.
Parliament is going though the normal process for selecting the next prime minister under these type of circumstances. Theresa May became Conservative leader and prime minister under the same process when David Cameron stepped down in 2016 after his referendum idea backfired. The flaw about this process is that the popular vote does not necessarily reflect the collective vote on overall ability to deliver and represent the office with honour and integrity, as it should.
The troubling issue here has to be that the winner of this contest will not be prime minister because they have the required skills to lead the country, but rather because because Mps with self interested motives voted for them. This has to be a worrying premise on which to base a political leader, especially one to become prime minister.
Boris Johnson is currently leading the voting process and is likely to emerge the winner and next prime minister. He is in high spirits and must be excited at the prospect of becoming the next prime minister of Great Britain. It is an ambition he has had for a long time, and it is very soon to be realised. The question is whether he is truly fit to become the next prime minister. Johnson is an intelligent man with plenty of accomplishments, but his several gaffs and misstatements make worrying reading. Accused of racism, lying to the public about the amount the Uk will have to pay the EU, and many others, all contribute to a disturbing tale of problems to face the Uk if he becomes prime minister as the polls suggests.
Johnson who once said Muslims women who wear burkas look like letter boxes paints a picture of a man out of touch with society and the modern climate relating to topics like that. All his weaknesses and dangerous comments are all swept under the carpet by those whose focus are simply on securing a political post. If politicians are comfortable with the idea of placing as prime minister a man who has shown limited commitment to the principles of equal treatment then this country is in big trouble.
Many of Boris supporters among the public are Brexitiers who simply want a leader that will get Britain out of the EU regardless of how and under what circumstances. It is simply not good enough. A prime minister of the Uk must be able to represent all citizens fairly without prejudice and know what to say and what not say.Johnson seems very unfit for to be leader of Britain, and the fact there are many who share that view is an unfortunate thing for him. It also ridicules the judgement of Mps who are supporting Johnson in high numbers since it is clear they are all out for their own pockets. and status.
