    DOOM: BoJo

    "Boris Johnson is doomed, but Rishi Sunak might not be the saviour the Tories crave

    Downing Street’s May 2020 bring-your-own-booze party has reignited the despair about Boris Johnson’s leadership that the remaining Conservative optimists hoped might disappear over the winter break. Now, though, the blaze has revived with a vengeance. Johnson’s apology to the Commons does not solve this in any way.

    The apology merely confirms what was already clear: an astonishingly insensitive breach was committed at the height of the first lockdown. This dereliction did not just feature Johnson as a participant: it was marked by his very character. His apology, with its continued pretence about a work event within the regulations, lacks either moral worth or political credibility.

    Conservative MPs are well aware their leader is a dodgy chancer. Some of them actively admire this. Others are happy to profit from it. Many loathe it while quietly despising themselves for permitting it. But the style works only while it succeeds. Most Tories had put Johnson on probation after his spectacularly disastrous December. The fresh explosion this week means they are now looking more urgently than before at the alternatives."

    Pretty pathetic that the worst thing BoJo supposedly had done was to have that party

      Odd on to be gone this year.

      If the local elections in May go badly he's toast.

        I find your lack of faith in BoJo disturbing

          What we're dealing with here is a total lack of respect for the law.

            They are not just above the law - they are making the law!

                They make the laws so are above it.

                The Queen signs the laws into existence and obeys them even though they don't apply the her.

                I bet even she has told this liar of a PM to go especially as his henchman, Rees Mogg, is now giving a helping hand to Scottish independence.

                  What finally brings you down in the end is rarely the worst thing you have done.

                    Guidance != laws. It really shows how fundamentally well-behaved the UK population are that we've largely followed all the guidance when it has typically not been law, unlike other nations.
