Brexit Fails; BoJo Is Waiting

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

Theresa May said she’d resign as prime minister if her Brexit plan passed. It failed today. So is she going to resign anyway? Or stick around just to annoy everyone? The world is waiting.

Naturally, I hope she resigns and Boris Johnson becomes PM. This would make Brexit world historically ridiculous, which is really all it deserves. Maybe BoJo will work with Donald Trump to get the UK admitted to the US as four additional states? You guys are going to love Trump’s fabulous new health care system!

Ahem. Yes. I know it’s not a joke. All jokes will hereby cease.¹

¹But only after everyone votes for my blog as the greatest American literary achievement of all time.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
