“Interviewer: Can you give an example, in your political life, when you’ve set your own self-interest aside for the benefit of the country?
Boris Johnson: Well, er, pfft, um, it’s a good question, but er, I, I, I would, you know, I don’t, obviously, it’s an embarrassing but, but true that, um, er, it is obviously, possible, er, how should I put this, to make more money, er, by not being a full-time politician. Um, I don’t, I don’t want to put too finer point on it, er, but, you know, you have to, you have to, you have to, make sacrifices sometimes” Conservative Leadership Contest Hustings in Darlington (5 July 2019)
Well, this whole Brexit ordeal has been chaotic and without any strong leadership. The Conservative Party or the Tories have been shambolic. They have now used the added time from Brexit Day in March to fight. Whose get the mantle post Theresa May, instead of finding liveable solutions to the biggest quest in their lifetime.
Alas, that is what the British does and the elite, who will not pay for the added austerity, troubling markets or hard border with Northern Ireland. While the Irish has prepared over three budgets and trying to get secured by the European Union. The Tories are flying in without much and still trying to configure the needed basics for a withdrawal from the Union. It is clear, that the Tories and the government doesn’t care much of the consequences as long as they are in power. If they did care, they would have shown the effects of leaving and also put up proper measures to tackle the coming hardships of post-EU membership.
Still, Boris Johnson will try to make it sound simple, as the populist and braggadocio man he is. Johnson will smooth talk, just like he did as Foreign Secretary, but don’t expect him to do much. Because, that is something he really doesn’t do. His a lazy bugger in power and has shown little flex, than playing for the guards whenever it has fitted him.
Johnson is a conning man, a man of big promises, lot of bravado but little flair or care for others. That is why other MPs are resigning as he becomes the PM. Others are condemning him, even before he starts, because has shown racists remarks and utter machoism in attitude. Not the perfect start for any MP, but this is a self-created obstacle, as he himself has shown disregard for a big portion of society and his racial slurs will always follow him.
That is why a man whose career has been to mystify and create division, will not supposed be there to create unity is utterly ridiculous, its obnoxious and demeaning to the public. Maybe the people of Brexit Party and far Right loves this man. But very few else do.
This is not the sort of man that should guide the British out of the self-made crisis they are in, which has been inflected on them because of men like Johnson. Who is a self-seeking diva and lover of power, but doesn’t know how to use it or get things done. That is the sort of man at the helm in London. Surely, Brussels must shiver, but also the other capitals, because his a despicable example of a man and a politician. Boris the Blade has arrived and it’s going to get bloody. Peace.
Abed Nadir: “Chaos already dominates enough of our lives. The universe is an endless raging sea of randomness. Our job isn’t to fight it, but to weather it together, on the raft of life. A raft held together by those few, rare, beautiful things that we know to be predictable” (Community, Season 3, Episode 4, 2011).
Well, it the Conservative and Unionist Party, the Tories elects Boris Johnson to take over the helm after Theresa May. Surely, the Brexit will end in an utter fiasco, the party will be in shambles and the populists will get a hold of power.
Boris is the sort of man, whose had no trouble stabbing people in their back and moments later kissing their asses. That is just who he is, also is a womanizer, racist and a man of total disregard of people, except himself. An Etonian without no high regard for the common man, except when he needs their votes.
Who knows if he will beat Dominic Raab, Michael Gove, Jeremy Hunt, Matt Hancock or Rory Stewart, because this is just first of plenty of votes. Even if Boris got the best results in the first tally in the internal voting. However, this is just the start, but shows some intent.
That Boris is the frontrunner and has such a big margin from the get-go is a worry, as the signs of the tides, which are ahead. That the MPs are voting in favour of him. Shows also their fear and their reckless attitude towards it all. Boris wasn’t a smooth operator as a Foreign Secretary, he didn’t deliver anything substantial or help the Brexit Process as an Brexiteer. No, he did nearly nothing, just like several other hard-liners.
Therefore, this vote will be a shambles, this is the mere travesty, where the Tories get to have a new vote, to have a referendum on their leadership. While the public have to look at it and squint at it too. While the Tories themselves will not give the public a second chance for a snap election nor a new referendum, as the Brexit is already a beacon of self-destruction. Just that the leadership of the two major parties won’t say that, in fear of the fearmongering salesman of Nigel Farage and Company.
If Boris Johnson takes over, expect more resignations, more troubling negotiations and also fabulous expenses put without consideration of the tax-payer. That is the sort of man he is and he shows it again and again. Boris will misuse the power he has and scrap vital things, just to have the seat. He just don’t care, as long as his the king.
Boris will not bring wealth, stealth and health, only chaos.
This is the darkest timeline, surely, the Community show warned us, but we didn’t listen. It was shambolic under PM May, but will not become smooth sailing under the leadership of Johnson. He will only undermine himself and his allies, he will come with empty pledges and knowingly, know that the EU will not comply. Because, he knows this, but want to be popular in the eyes of the people, even if it means not staying true to the reality. That is why the Brexit process been such a mess and continues to be so.
Boris the Blade, Boris Johnson will not succeed, it isn’t in him. He might win this leadership contest, because of his savvy ways with political infighting, but externally. He will loose, BIG. Peace.
