Zakharova describes the situation of Johnson’s successor candidates as a tea party in a novel. "Alice in Wonderland"

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova commented on candidates running for prime minister seeking to replace Boris Johnson.

According to Zakharzva, the position of candidates for Johnson’s successor is similar to one of the chapters of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland (when Alice is invited to the Mad Hatter’s tea party): “For some reason, this reminds me of the English facts described by its author, it seems to me that this is a Hatter’s tea party, when there is one table, the same cups, which no one cleans, does not wash, and everyone drinks in sips, and then just goes to another place.

“It’s just a mixture of people… not new people, not new opportunities, the same people who have been involved in decision making for many years,” she added.

Zakharova noted that “this is their inner life, their country, so let them decide for themselves how they will build their foreign and domestic policy, whether it will be aggressive .. and whether it will be at the level of deterioration .. or (the opinion of some) will directed towards international cooperation .. it will be up to the British to decide.” “.

The first round of elections for the post of prime minister should take place after the resignation of Boris Johnson on Wednesday.

All 358 members of parliament from the Conservative Party will vote on Wednesday evening for the candidate they want to see as the new prime minister.

There are currently 10 candidates nominated for prime minister, two of whom are currently ministers: Secretary of State Liz Trouss and Finance Minister Nazem Zahavi.

A number of former government members also joined to run for prime minister.
