The only downside is that there is no way to finance his election promises. I don't know if that is off-putting to voters in the UK or if that is expected of campaigners.
Still, let's not forget that Johnson is best when campaigning.

Why do I not make this demand of the Conservatives, Lib-Dems, DUP or Scottish Nationalists, because they are open establishment parties. UKIP, the Brexit Party and Corbyn's labour party claim to be radical anti elitist privilege parties. Hence condemnation of the monarchy and ending of the vote of allegiance for those parties is non negotiable

Wtf is the point in having loads of surplus cash when OAPs are freezing to death in their own homes (which is what happened in the early-mid 90s and it's made a comeback since 2010).

Sure you can borrow to invest occasionally but what use is over borrowing to solve a non profitable problem today that will most definitely return and be worse in the future because you borrowed yesteryear? And unfortunately that is why capitalism is on borrowed time. QE cannot work everytime and no government ever plans on creating a surplus and always promises pledges they cannot afford. If you want the perks you need to decide what you are willing to sacrifice for it. Be it in taxes or other services.
Mock Swinson if you like, but at least your country isn't going bust with her in charge.
