Phew ! Maybe some sanity will be restored to British politics. Like so many, I spent yesterday in a state of anxiety that the Conservative party, or at least a portion of it, might have forgotten why they kicked Johnson out only three months ago and were fantasizing that maybe he was the only person who could win them another election in 2024. But, in the end, reality seems to have won out. 57 of his ministers had resigned because of the appalling incompetence of his leadership, not just the lies, but the laziness and ineptitude. Had all 57 forgotten or decided that there could be a Johnson Mark 2, full of the trustworthiness which he has so signally failed to demonstrate for the last 58 years of his career ?
It’s a great relief.
