Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
Not only does the UK not have a Presidential system, but it doesn't have a normal parliamentary system where Parliament elects the PM either. The PM is appointed by the Queen, and thereafter she has no choice but to do his bidding, and Parliament doesn't have much control over him either even if it does vote no confidence in him - twice. He can still chose to delay an election until after Brexit day.

The bottom line is that so long as a majority in Parliament can't agree on an alternative plan or leader they are pissing into the wind, or perhaps more accurately, at each other. All their petty squabbles and personal ambitions are more important than stopping what they all claim to be against - a no deal Brexit.

Frankly the entire UK body politic needs to be flushed down the toilet - if they were representing my country I would be utterly appalled.
