As my readers by now know, I am not a fan of Boris Johnson, whilst I have no doubt he is a great hoot on a wild night out, the nearest he should be to Whitehall is a west end gentleman's club where he can discuss thrashing the help to his heart's content. It is unfathomable that this bumbling nincompoop is now in charge of leading the UK away from the safety net of it's nearest friends and neighbours and directly into the darkness of Trump's ugly face of capitalism.
Boris may be leading a nation of 60m+, but his election to the highest office in the land was limited only to a select few. Members of the tory party who had only a small selection of leadership candidates to choose from. The great British public have had no say whatsoever. Boris is good for all those billionaires, like Jacob Rees-Mogg, who intend to make fortunes from the island of England being lost at sea. Already we have seen large shipping contracts for companies who err, have no ships. Brexit will bring out every scammer, every con artist and every wide boy with a good line in selling Londons' bridges. The NHS is already being run down for the sale of the century.
The thing voters need to remember is that Boris Johnson is not a cartoon character from the Viz, nor is he a badly drawn caricature, he is all too real, and he is evil. Behind the playfully tousled hair and buffoonery, is a heart and soul intent on making as much dosch as he can for himself and his billionaire supporters. How much did ordinary Londoners make out of the London Olympics. Nothing. They were expected to work for free, like the serfs of old, their reward would be in heaven.
Boris Johnson represents the get rich(er) quick brigade. He goes along with everything that makes the tory party the nasty party, like robbing the poor to enrich the rich. Ie. the opposite of Robin Hood. As long as the poor and the working classes have just enough to live on, he and his ilk, can maintain the status quo. Working people do not earn enough to protest at being taken for granted and few now have strong unions to represent them. Employment, even on shit pay, is better than unemployment. And this is where vultures like Boris swoop in. Where non tories see the misery of unemployment, tories see an untapped, free, work resource. Thousands of units (people) to loan out to their manufacturing and retail donors. Don't for one moment be fooled into thinking Boris Johnson and his right wing cabinet will do anything to protect British workers from the devastating effects of a no deal Brexit.
On one of the simplest of dilemmas yet to come is the crisis in the NHS. We all know how much the NHS relies on foreign nurses and foreign workers, will they all disappear overnight?
Theresa May failed miserably with Brexit. There is nothing in Boris that gives hope for success. He is already preparing for no deal, because he knows he doesn't have a hope in hell of getting anything better than Theresa May. As tories, both are already privileged, self entitled twats, so negotiations of any sort, were never going to work. The Europeans, it would seem, are waiting for someone a tad more enlightened so must now be rolling on the floor laughing as Johnson steps up to the plate. To be fair, I expect Boris got the PM job, because it is a poisoned chalice. Any (tory) PM at this juncture, is in an unwinnable situation. Not only is the country divided, but so too is his party.
Boris Johnson was not elected by the people to take the UK out of Europe. He was elected by, almost literally, a handful of rich, middle aged white men with vested interests. We need a general election, and we need people to vote with the interests of their children and their children's children in mind. The idea that we can lock the gates and live with the same white neighbours for ever more, is not only ludicrous, it's downright creepy. It's the 21st century, people travel and move on, neighbourhoods cannot stand still in time and who wants them to? As the young move on, others take their place, it keeps the wheels of society turning.
The problem with Boris Johnson and his War Cabinet is that we are not at war. Not a good start, wouldn't we have preferred to hear he was preparing for peace talks? He is coming out fighting, too stupid to remember that fighting got Theresa May nowhere. We are one small nation against 27 nations who are united. We don't hold the upper hand. The UK is friendless and alone, Trump doesn't count because he is so far gone down the batshit crazy route, he can't be depended on for anything. Should the gaffe prone Boris meet the gaffe prone Trump anything could happen.
