Boris Johnson is not going to stand for Tory leader and by default, the next Prime Minister of the UK. All of the mess in regards Brexit was because Johnson wanted the PM’s job and shat David Cameron up so much he got forced into an alley and had to call a referendum, and now rather than be part of cleaning up the mess he’s caused he’s decided to slink off into the background to become the most hated man in the UK which must make Gary Glitter breathe a sigh of relief for a while.
Of course Johnson would have fucked things up but if you break it, you fix it, now we have realistically either Teresa May or Michael Gove as next Tory leader and Prime Minister because neither will call an election although both will take the Tories on a new direction that makes what we’ve seen under Cameron seem like a breeze. As someone who was so recently crapping themselves working out what type of cancer they had I can only say this feels exactly like that. Actually, it’s worse because I may be cleared of cancer but either of this pair will fuck us over with no hope of recovery. We have a succession of Tories fighting to become their Adam Susan.
There will be no general election, so all you lefty types that voted to leave hoping that would happen I hope you’re happy. We’ve got a choice between a Tory that wants rid of human rights, has introduced the Snooper’s Charter and gave us the racist van or a Tory that’s backed by Paul Dacre and Rupert Murdoch who is such a hardcore Unionist he’d risk the Good Friday Agreement.
The fallout of the Brexit vote is enormous. Imagine now a UK being rewritten in the image of Michael Gove and Teresa May. Don’t be black, poor, Muslim, gay, Scottish,Irish, Welsh, working class, disabled, or anything that won’t conform to their vision of a ‘proud’ ‘one-nation’ Britain where the Tories have everything under control and the masturbating imp of UKIP sit on their shoulder pushing them evermore over to the far right.
But today belongs to Boris Johnson. A coward who broke the country, broke people’s lives and destroyed the future of millions of people alive now and yet to be born, but didn’t want to take responsibility for what he did. Only his constituents now get a say on his future while we all get to pick up the mess that started on the playing fields of Eton decades ago.
So there’s only one song to close this….
