Then there were two (I know there are still four but do you really see Jeremy Hunt or Sajid Javid stopping the Boris Bus?) . Rory Stewart is now a Tory unperson – far too much personality and hubris for his own good – jealousy is a powerful force in politics. It is unlikely that Michael Gove will stop the Boris bus either (although he has taken many a ride on board the big red bus in the past.) He will at least he will make the next few weeks interesting because he may well force Boris to be interesting and then who knows what will happen? However, even if Boris is very interesting I doubt it will make a jot of a difference. Send in the clown.
Is it time to be afraid? No not really as we are currently living through a period where someone even less qualified is in charge of the world’s most powerful military force and could kill us all with one command…perhaps it is time to be afraid. Very AFRAID!
