I started to watch last night’s Tory Party leader debate and immediately lost interest. What was the point of the whole charade? These men don’t have to engage with the public at large but rather 318 MPs and then 160 (very ish) thousand people to get elected. Boris Johnson is so far ahead that he is unstoppable. He knows it; His opponents know it and those that get to vote know it. The interesting side show distraction of Rory Stewart has been just that a sideshow.
Once all the dust has settled Boris will notice that nothing has changed only now he is the one that has to carry the can. If he screws up then he is going to have to explain to the British people as they come to terms with the problems of leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement why this was such a good idea. Equally, if we don’t leave on the 31st October he is going to have to explain to the raging fury of the Brexit Party/Tory membership why this is such a good idea. Finally if his government collapses he is going to have to explain to the British public at large why all those previous dog whistle comments he made , plus any he may have made during his tenure as Prime Minister, doesn’t disqualify him from being the Prime Minister .
If that does make you wonder what the hell is going on and your Blood Pressure is rising to dangerous levels then here is a photograph of a wheat at dawn…can you hear the larks calling, the warm breeze on your face? Yes? Well good luck to you.
