Boris Johnson is gone but not gone – 19 tweets that nail exactly where we are now
In a development which probably shouldn’t surprise anyone, it turns out that Boris Johnson can’t even resign properly.
Officially the worst prime minister ever, Johnson wants to hang around until the Tories get around to electing a new leader and PM (plus he’s got Chequers booked for his wedding do).
As we wait to find out how long this political upside down world will last, these 19 tweets totally nail where we find ourselves now.
It is somewhat ironic, is it not, that Tory MPs achieved the workplace change they needed by withdrawing their labour.

Sky saying Tom Tugenhat is ‘throwing his hat into the ring’. Does that mean we now call him Tom Tugen?

The greatest trick the PM ever played was convincing the world that he had resigned.

I wonder whether we’ll ever escape the legacy of letting the most pathetic, thin-skinned, whiny, chicken licken, cry baby, country-burning cowards convince their readers, listeners & viewers that *we* are the ‘snowflakes’! pic.twitter.com/MKH4qxzI1v
