No one will shed a tear about this, but the ones that does is just not releasing what sort of character he was. Boris Johnson is finally resigning as Member of Parliament (MP). His doing so because of his actions during lockdown. The former PM was busy holding parties and social gatherings in the middle of lockdown. Apparently, in the end there is some consequences to it after all.
Boris felt entitled to sit as MP and to be held in high regard. Even when it wasn’t justified. His lucky that the Privilege Committee only wanted to suspend him over 10 days. Compared to others who was fined, lost their careers and couldn’t visit their loved ones during the lockdowns. I would say that he got off the hook easily. There is so many others who couldn’t visit funerals, care-homes or even say the final goodbyes. While he was drinking wine and enjoying the perks of his office at the office.
Seriously, it is despicable that he now wants to go on a rampage against his successor. You can say a lot of things about Rishi Sunak, but doing this now is all a political gambit. The Privilege Committee had to do this after the findings. If the Committee didn’t issue anything of sorts, then they wouldn’t seem legit or be within the realm of codes of conduct.
We know that Johnson doesn’t value the Nolan Principles or anything else for that matter. As long as it was benefiting him. He could care less about others. As PM he wanted to wine-and-dine. In Office he wanted to live large and get the best of life. That’s why he did it and he took it all for granted. Even the long vacations to the Caribbean on the dime of donors is saying it all.
That Boris ends his tenure and time as MP is telling. It ended because he was reckless and didn’t follow codes. He was able to rise to power and gain influence by populist means. These populist ideals are dwindling and becoming less of sought after. Because, at this very moment of time… the things he did in office and the acts have ramifications. The costs and burden of Brexit is happening now. Businesses are hit and some are going bankrupt, because they cannot trade as easily with Europe. Two companies I know have either stopped or ceased their operations completely. I used to use them too, but now it is impossible. That’s all thanks to the mighty Johnson and the Oven Ready Brexit.
The ones thinking this is the final nail in the coffin of Boris Johnson’s career. I wouldn’t sign him off that easily. He can use his titles, previous offices and ability to create a new avenue for himself. Regardless of what sort of charlatan he really is. We have seen how Tony Blair is operating as a PR Guru for dictators across the Globe. Maybe, these two should join forces and earn even more “dirty” money together.
I was happy seeing Boris ending his career and practically calling for a By-Election. Not that it will matter in the grand scheme of things. It will fizzle out. However, Boris will not be remembered kindly. Neither as MP or as a PM. He might think of himself highly, but that is his own impression of himself. Boris is a Farage sort of politician and he should just accept that.
Boris, you will not be missed by the likes of me. The self-centred and for profit politics are no good. Instead of serving the community and the kingdom at large. You choose the path of enriching and enlarging your own image. In the end, that’s why you have less friends and less allies. Because when the storm hit. They knew they couldn’t rely on you, but instead had to ditch you. Peace.
