BORIS JOHNSON signing the “Brexit” agreement (Wikipedia).

Boris Johnson hung on to his post as prime minister for Great Britain on Monday, but without much enthusiasm from his own Conservative Party.

In the British parliamentary system, the nation’s political leader is not chosen by popular vote, but from among the members of the party that holds a majority in the House of Commons.

According to The Associated Press, Johnson received 211 votes out of 359. But there were 148 members of his own party who withheld their backing.

“It’s a convincing result, a decisive result,” said Johnson, reports The New York Times.  The paper also suggested that such a close vote could mean that the PM might lose another vote soon, and be ousted from office.

A strong backer of “Brexit” – the withdrawal of his nation from European Union – Johnson’s administration has run into problems implementing the move and experienced scandals about flouting coronavirus prevention measures.

Will Musk really buy Twitter?

ELON MUSK, CEO of Tesla (Wikipedia/NORAD).

Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and reportedly the world’s richest man, fired another salvo on Monday in his attempt to purchase Twitter.

According to The New York Times, Musk’s lawyers sent a letter to the Securities and Exchanges Commission claiming that the social media messaging giant was “actively resisting and thwarting” efforts to determine how many Twitter accounts might be fake.

Some critics of Twitter claim the portion of accounts there could include millions of phony or duplicated customers.

Some critics of Musk have suggested that his latest move was a negotiating tool designed to lower the $44 billion purchase price.
