Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The various Lords who make these decisions were mad enough to push Brexit through. They want someone who is a committed loyalist, not just a narcissistic opportunist like Johnson. Someone fresh would (checks notes..) "restore some gravitas to the role of PM", and would make Brexit seem more like an adult project than a toddler tantrum.

Considering the perpetual reluctance to dig down and work at Brexit, is this the same attitude, just a step higher? They want gravitas etc, so just fire the current front man and get someone who can do the job. Who would do it and how they would make Brexit appear an adult project, that is for the little people to work out. Maybe they could do some technical solution at the Irish border? The powers that be are more idea people.

Apparently there are plenty of methods for getting the poor people to pay the rich peoples' bills. So a nice old gentleman with a top hat and a sash and a huntin' and fishin' estate in the Cotswolds would be about right. Rule Britannia and all that. Sounds pretty adultish.
