John Major

I missed hearing John Major on the Today programme, but have caught up with Nick Robinson’s interview this evening. It’s an impressive exercise in restrained anger: someone who has been, and remains, a natural conservative, disappointed and incredibly upset at the direction the party is being taken: away from any sense or understanding of decency and morality towards a sense of self-serving entitlement. Of course, we know that the Johnsons couldn’t bear the John Lewis furniture they inherited and replaced it with overblown historicist nostalgia paid for in ways we still don’t fully understand, but will probably have involved the scattering of peerages. But at some point, won’t Middle England recognise that they have elected a monster who doesn’t in any way represent them ?
