THE United Kingdom could soon be at war. And in wartime we need a strong, lying, blame-everyone-else leader with no moral backbone who cares only for himself.
Now is not the time to unseat a prime minister just because he lied to the House, lied to the public and takes bribes for wallpaper. Now is the time to stand by him.
Tensions are rising in the Ukraine. Conflict with Russia seems inevitable. Can our country afford to be embroiled in a Conservative leadership campaign while the Red Army marches? To be weighing up the benefits of Truss vs Raab as the missiles fly?
Of course not. That would be to give succor to our enemies. The very last thing Putin wants is to face a powerful, resolute leader, tempered in the fire of getting away scot-free with criminal activity, despised by the people he is supposed to represent.
Up against a prime minister who has once again got away with it, who has once again established that his actions have no consequences for himself, who is prepared to take any risk with British lives to be popular again? Putin would be terrified.
You cannot replace a leader on the eve of war. Churchill, who leading Buddhists believe has been reincarnated as Boris Johnson, knew that better than anyone.
So whatever the outcome of Sue Gray’s report, Boris must remain in office, hated and distrusted by his MPs and voters, for the role of wartime leader he is congenitally unfit for and will soon be bored with. We have no other choice.
