Imagine if we'd known this man would end up being responsible for food & petrol shortages, 10s of 1000s of avoidable deaths, the incineration of 150,000 healthy pigs, collapsed UK fishing, the constitutional & social break-up of the UK, and Brits having to swim in their own sh*t.

Two things to say in response to most of the comments... 1) Yes I'm aware that most of us knew nothing good would come from him being given the slightest bit of political power.
Boris Johnson is now our #ForeignSecretary! #GameofThrones

2) I'm still seeing comments along the lines of: ''But people will still vote for him.'' BE PRECISE or you'll depress people into inaction and despair! See below!
Can we PLEASE stop saying "People will still vote Tory despite...". OF COURSE! There'll always be about 40% voters who buy what the Tories sell at elections. And they've ALWAYS been the minority. Fixing the UK isn't about convincing them. It's about the Left working together!

Labour can't even work together, how do you expect different parties to?

People can debate the likelihood of Labour, the Lib Dems & Greens forming an Electoral Pact based on Electoral Reform, as much as they like... All you're doing is wasting time and energy because regardless of how likely it is, it's THE ONLY way to avoid a decade of PM Johnson.

I know people who think if Labour doesn't win for the 5th time we should not form a non-aggression pact. πŸ’€

Why isn't there one already? This alliance isn't about any party. Not even about the Tories It's about taking the UK democracy to the 21st century and fix the broken voting system! The alliance will be disbanded after it changes the system. Then you can vote left, centre or right

There isn't one already because Labour think they can win on their own. and without them and the tories you'll only ever have 20 to 25% of the votes which spread across the country doesn't get you many MPs

You are right but, like I told you before, we need to understand *exactly* why it isn't happening. Also, the opponents of PR frequently point out that the proponents of PR only want it to get Tories out. We need to want it because *it's the right thing to do whoever wins*.

I don't disagree but i think it is very unlikely at the moment. There seems no appetite for it from the parties (maybe aside from the greens) as it is admission that they can't win on their own and I don't think Labour are ready to admit this yet.

A large majority of Labour Party members are in favour, but the unions who sponsor the Party are yet to be convinced. Not sure the PLP are keen either.
