A National Disgrace

Given that I got so worked up about Kier Starmer yesterday, I might be expected to write something about Boris Johnson today. But what can I say? What on earth can I write about the utter shitshow that is British politics? I watched more or less the first half of PMQs earlier, before it got too much for me to bear and I had to turn it off. Johnson blatantly refused to answer any question put to him, instead replying with bluster and accusatory bullshit. He should never have become prime minister in the first place, but is now clinging to power as if it was his birthright. His performance this afternoon was so full of pomposity and arrogance, and the underlying stench of someone who believes that his opinions trump everybody else’s simply because of who he is, that it quickly became unwatchable.

I cannot offer you anything more than this. I can’t offer any special analysis or insight.  Politically, the country is in a dire, dire mess, lead by a charlatan who refuses to face the consequences of his actions, or even admit, least of all to himself, that he even made a mistake. The fact that Johnson is still clinging to power this evening is a national disgrace. Yet at the moment there’s nothing any of us can do about it but sit back,  watch events unfold, and try not to get too worked up about it.
