I say! What frightful shambles!
So our new Prime Minister has been chosen, by a group of people no greater than the population of Worcester. We’ll either get the coup I referred to in my last post, or we will have to suffer the buffoon through the rest of the summer and into the autumn. I don’t know which is worse. The longer Johnson stays, I suspect the longer he’ll want to stay, as did Gordon Brown. Better to have two or three years of useless premiership than risk defeat after only a few months. But he could do one or two useful things. He said he would hold a review into HS2. It’s time to stop the ballooning white elephant HS2 and redirect the investment into rail in the north. But actually I can’t think of anything else he may be useful for. His knowledge of climate change seems sketchy. His approach to social justice non-existent. But why might we expect anything else? Perhaps our greatest worry should be that he will be Trump’s useful idiot in Downing Street. Having said which, we’re still stuck with Brexit, and clueless Boris is unlikely to make any headway on a new deal on that front. His incompetence will lead us into a no-deal Brexit on 31st October.
