Boris Johnson’s zombie government could still have some life in it

LONDON — Welcome to Day One of Boris Johnson’s new, strange and super awkward premiership

 dubbed “the long goodbye” by friendly British newspapers

Others compare his reboot government to a kind of zombie entity, going and going, still dangerous.

The embattled, soon-to-be-discarded prime minister, who succumbed to a ministerial revolt and announced his resignation Thursday

plans to stay in office until his fellow Conservative Party members choose his successor

a process that might not be complete until September or October.

And so Johnson may trundle on, for weeks or months — a leader degraded by almost 60 resignations

including by top ministers who brand him as unfit for leadership because he cannot be trusted to tell the truth.

Britain is the fifth-largest economy in the world, a member of the elite wealthy-nation club

of the Group of Seven, and a crucial ally to the United States, Europe and Ukraine

Johnson quickly appointed a jiffy Cabinet to keep the government functioning, but many of these new faces are inexperienced low fliers.
