    While this is pretty funny, there's one thing every time I see a story like this I can't help but question. Is anyone else disgusted at the fact that people like him can get positions like that where they have a key role in deciding policies and laws that effect large groups of people's lives. Even when they are repeatedly called on how horrible of a job they are doing and they're utter lack of preparedness or even high level of apathy they can still keep those jobs. Yet someone at as low a level as retail management at a grocery store can be held accountable and even terminated if they cannot perform that job...? How are those people able to keep their jobs after appalling performances like that. I'm just ranting after binging this show, which is freaking great by the way, but it is a serious question that I wonder if it will ever be ever be answered or if anything will ever be done about it. Just wanted to get that off my chest and out there is all.

Despite his gaffes, his controversies and his less than outstanding record, Boris is actually quite popular in the UK.

      Good comparison. From what I’ve read the impression I get is of a man who has failed upward his whole life. Never achieved anything all that spectacular and more often than not made himself look like a jackals-but also never caused any truly catastrophic problems, and his antics were usually amusing enough to endear him as a lovable clown rather than a genuine incompetent.
