I find it slightly weird watching the Prime Minister, who has obviously spent nearly his entire life from prep school onwards evading the consequences of his actions, prepare the ground for another evasion, conscripting the entire senior ranks of the government in support of his totally implausible excuse, trying to slip the knots like a practised escapologist, all of it in full view of the British public. But it is hard to believe that the majority of people will accept that he accidentally mistook a party for a business meeting and that he now feels in any way contrite, particularly if his wife was at the business meeting with a gin and tonic and if he failed to show contrition later in the afternoon. It’s an act.
One thought on “Downing Street Parties (4)”
He’s not even a good actor.
