Nothing suprises me about BoJo but the general public seem to love him and let him off with any of his indiscretions which i just don't understand.
If he really is the best we can put forward as the PM and face of this country then we are truly fucked.
The problem is more fundamental - Johnson is only the product of the political system.
Think of it this way - if Johnson stood in a General Election tomorrow against Starmer would he win?
I would say he probably would.
Johnson crushed Corbyn.
Before that he beat May to become leader.
Before that May beat Corbyn in 2017
Before that May beat Leadsom to become Tory leader after Cameron resigned after the Brexit referendum.
Where I'm going with all of this is that none of them (or those they stood against) where ever going to make the best Prime Minister where they?
The problem is that politics is about power and those who manage to get their hands on the power at the right time will go the furthest - and those once in power will do everything they can to stop there.
There's been a huge social and moral shift in the last decade or so dating back at least to Blair (and the lies to go to war) where what was once unacceptable as become accepted.
Look at how people behave on social media, look at how Wembley was stormed by the mob, look at how people ignored all the Covid rules, etc, etc, etc.
Look at Trump and how the Republican party still behaves, Christ (and I won't be popular for saying this) even look at how Wanderlust behaved on here - abusive, lying, completely in the wrong as I went to great lengths to demonstrate to you all - but no one was bothered and he's completely unrepentant for doing so.
My point being that if we as individuals don't try to do the right things in life, then why would you expect those with power - political, financial, physical or any other sort of power - to do the rights things?
Clearly they will do what's best for them.
That is the world we now live in.
We've got exactly what we've deserved.
And that's why Boris can do such shit and still survive it all.
