3. This, their system has provisions for it and a much weaker head of state overall

If we somehow were able to make constitutional reforms, I'd love to see the presidency reformed to be more like the UK PM.

It would take major constitutional changes though. Without that, changing the president easily is (and should be) a pipedream

2. Except we can't manage to do it ...

... before a grave amount of irreparable damage is done, I'm afraid!

When we got rid of Thatcher she'd already decimated our manufacturing industry.

When we got rid of Cameron, he'd already broken the country in two.

T May just went about fucking up any semblance of self-respect the country had still remaining.

Boris Johnson??: 'Jolly well hold my beer' - FFFS!
