Johnson Proving to be the Man we Were Warned About!
Posted on January 14, 2022
“Poor old Sue Gray”.
We are told to wait for her report into what we all know happened at the Downing Street parties. If Boris Johnson says he thought a party was a work event, then there is not much Sue Gray can do about it. Like us, she knows he is a liar but if he says he isn’t, nothing has changed. She can’t sack him; he is her boss. Her report is a waste of time and public money.
We, the public, have been asked to abide by the rules, but his attitude suggests that neither him, nor his team of people have to obey them. He has been caught out and you can almost feel his indignance. How dare people try and belittle him and call him out for what he is!?
Suprised About Surprise
What I find surprising about this, is people are surprised. Johnson has always been a narcissistic oaf. A whole host of respected people who have worked with Johnson, warned us what would happen. They told us that behind the buffoonery lay a chancer, an arrogant oaf, a gold medal liar, and a textbook narcissist.
These critics weren’t left wingers. They were Tory commentators, historians, and politicians. These are professional people who had witnessed first-hand, his appalling manner and double-crossing behaviour that left chaos in its wake. A man easily led by money, women, and lavish lunches.
Peter Oborne, Dominic Grieve, John Major, Ken Clarke and Max Hastings, all Tories, warned us that Johnson is a chancer with no respect for law or detail. They told us he would wreak havoc and damage Britain’s reputation. Some, naively, thought leadership might nullify Johnson’s instincts for appalling behaviour; how wrong they were.
With regards to how much he cares, people who do know Johnson
would often disagree. Some say he has a deep desire to be loved whilst others say
he cares only about himself. We know his scruffy image is at least in part,
choreographed. His whole political career has been based around being a buffoon
who gets results.
The problem is that when Johnson gets things done, they are always impulsive and populist. He is like the salesman who brings in a stack of orders only for his boss to find out six months later everything was sold at a loss. You can almost imagine the deals being done on the back of a cigarette packet during a boozy lunch (all expenses paid of course)!
But he’s not just a salesman, he is the Prime Minister. The job of the Prime Minister is a serious business, involving national security, fiscal responsibility, the protection of citizens and the environment. It is a job not many of us could do. It requires statesmanship, respect, deep thought, and attention to detail.
A Spiteful Village Idiot
I only see Johnson as a clown, a fool, and a village idiot. Worse still, he carries out all those roles in a devious Machiavellian manner. He has revealed himself to be untrustworthy, deceitful, spiteful and when required, a nasty piece of work. His comedy act is a façade, and it is now being exposed for all to see.
When he eventually resigns (or gets the sack), is anyone’s guess.
However, what every responsible person must do, is ensure that someone like him is never given such power again. Having the king of bar stool bullshitters leading a country, will only inflict damage, domestically and internationally.
Hopefully the Johnson era will be a hard lesson learnt.
