THE public is pleased Boris Johnson has pulled out of the leadership race because he would have made a mockery of the otherwise completely reasonable process.
Britons have let out a collective sigh of relief that their next leader will not be a buffoonish clown man as he would have caused the whole undemocratic leadership contest to look like a farcical joke.
Roy Hobbs from Shrewsbury said: “Thank f**k. Now it’s just down to two front-runners 99.9 per cent of the population don’t have a say in. Much better.
“Could you imagine how stupid we’d look on the world stage if Johnson came back? Letting a bunch of in-fighting MPs squabble between Sunak and Mordaunt behind closed doors comes across as much more professional.”
Charlotte Phelps from Doncaster said: “It would have been silly. A disgraced prime minister back for round two after his replacement shat the bed? Only a total moron would have gone along with that.
“Although thinking about it, Johnson did the statesmanlike thing by stepping back. So I’ll definitely vote for him after whoever takes over next gets booted out. It’ll probably only be a few weeks, after all.”
