I joined political analyst Ali Miraj and talkRADIO’s Claudia-Liza Vanderpuije to discuss the latest turmoil in UK politics, with more revelations of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s flouting of Coronavirus regulations as Britons went through the deadliest pandemic in Europe.
We analyze the significance of the notorious parties in 10 Downing Street and the Cabinet Office, with a “culture of impunity” throughout Johnson’s Government; the Prime Minister’s deceptions throughout the crisis; and the possibility that he might be pushed out by the Conservative Party in the near-future.
Beyond Coronavirus, this impunity starts with a Prime Minister who — from the time he was a teenager — said he would be World King.
World Kings believe they do not have to accept the restrictions that we do….
As the Conservative MP Leo Amery said to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain at a low point in 1940 for the UK, “You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you.”
