What the hell happened to Boris Johnson?

Has our decrepit scarecrow of a Prime Minister, after AT LEAST 100k avoidable deaths, started to grow up?

  1. Johnson has politically developed and can easily get away with the skulduggery of the last year and move on to “sunny uplands” unless he’s effectively held to account every single day.
  2. The Tories have a clear vision of state corporatism for the next decade; investment and high state spending, that a mere critique of austerity will fail to touch.
  3. Unless the opposition parties cooperative around a radical and progressive vision for a new social, constitutional, and economic settlement for Britain, the Tories have until the 2030s to reshape Britain and our political spectrum in their image, much like in the 1980s.
