I emigrated from England to Australia in 1986, desperate to escape the destruction of the Thatcher years; I still see the dark seeds of her reign flowering.
But Boris is a whole new level of distress.
WHY IS HE STILL PRIME MINISTER?
How can he have hosted social events in his home while the whole country was in lockdown?? My Mum was shut in her room in her nursing home; her sister couldn’t even visit, and when they were finally allowed to connect, it was via a closed bay window looking onto the carpark where my Aunt stood, speaking on the phone, although they could see each other.
Boris Johnson’s birthday party is among 12 events being investigated by police, according to an initial report on 16 gatherings by Sue Gray (it’s called ‘PartyGate’).
There are allegations of garden parties, DJs, and suitcases full of alcohol. A culture of ‘excessive drinking’ has been highlighted.
This is the Prime Minister: why is he still in charge? How can he just REFUSE to step down?
Come on English folks: TIME FOR DIRECT ACTION! Time to get up and riot. You had the strictest peacetime restrictions imposed by this cruel clown of a leader, who partied with his cabinet while 150,000 of you died lonely Covid deaths.
Weddings were cancelled, and you weren’t allowed to hug each other at funerals, while Boris was LYING TO YOUR FACES about his behaviour.
It’s an emotionally-abusive relationship; he’s gaslighting you; he’s a cheating, selfish, heartless arsehole: DUMP HIM.
You so deserve better.
Quite frankly, we ALL do.
Our own arsehole Prime Minister let us burn in bushfires while he went off to holiday in Hawaii, gave us the vaccine ‘Strollout’, and now has us scrabbling for PPE gear for nursing homes while Rapid Antigen Tests are few and far between…
What’s happened to Honour?
What’s happened to Integrity?
What’s happened to Empathy and Courage?
Why are we being led by such dickheads? Why are we voting them in, and letting them stay there?
I shake my head and shake my fist at the state of the world and its terrible leaders, at a time when we need good ones more than ever.
How about you? How do you deal with the lack of honour (or ‘honor’ for the Americans) all around us?
I need to take my cranky face out for a walk, then destroy some garden weeds: that’s one of my strategies…
In gratitude for being able to vent in a safe place, & gardening, G xO
