In the spring of 2020, as I blogged is here at the time, my father died.
We had his funeral, such as it was, on the 19th of May 2020.
A dozen of us were allowed to be there. We couldn't have a wake.
Not everyone who should've been there to celebrate the life of my lovely father could be there and none of us could join together meaningfully after the brief and socially distanced ceremony.
If only we had thought to “Bring our own booze”…
The following day dozens of senior officials had a party in the garden of Downing Street.
This government is beyond belief.
Today Boris Johnson walked into parliament. Behind him with his MPs did he recognise they were a party? Perhaps they were just a gathering...
Of course Johnson has to go and of course Starmer is right to demand this.
However the Tories will probably dump him at a time of their choosing whilst enabling a new leader to have a good run up to the next general election.
Obviously we should enjoy watching Boris Johnson flapping around like a dying fish.
However, we need to be prepared to fight a general election against a rejuvenated Tory party under a new leader.
