Boris Johnson’s defence of his political adviser Dominic Cummings is, in a word, unfuckingbelievable.

As John Crace so rightly observes, it is now clear who is running the UK – and it isn’t Boris Johnson.

One law for the little people, and another law for your boss, eh, Boris?

Addendum 27 May 2020: the ever-dependable Marina Hyde eviscerates both Cummings and Johnson; whilst Chris Grey, over at his Brexit Blog, makes similar points about the paradox of populism – in less caustic tones, but none the less salient for all that.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
