ARROGANCE ALWAYS PRECEDES A FALL

Arrogance always precedes a fall so it seemed possible that change was imminent, but nothing fights harder than a cornered rat.
The desparate catastrophising of the pandemic in order to focus people’s attention away from the depraved indifference and endemic corruption that underpins the Orbanisation of British political constitutional life points to a severe attack of paranoia on the part of the Prime Minister and his sychophantic advisors and supporters.
However what this clique and their claque fail to recognise is that vast swathes of humanity don’t agree with the Hobbesian belief that when someone falls down the first inclination of the human being is to laugh, rather they are more inclined to agree with Rousseau and go and help them up.
So when Stratton and the crack spad squad were caught on video laughing about breaking covid rules whilst others toiled under Draconian regulations, and in some cases died, that was too much for the majority to bear.
Whether this proves fatal to the Johnson premiership remains to be seen. No doubt Johnson intends to take paternity leave after Xmas so it will be entertaining if nothing else in the short term to observe how the whole partygate saga pans out with Raab at the helm whilst The Prime Minister attends to parental duties.
I suspect there are grey suited rumblings in smoke filled rooms taking place but whether this is more than a diversion away from the rightward march of history is hard to tell.
After all, they do need a fall guy to take the blame further down the road, so maybe Johnson clings on for a few more months yet…..
