Boris has no reason to apologise when in miscreated circumstances all he has done is attempt to lead

Whilst the gravity of events culminating this week has not yet allowed time for the dust to settle, there can be no doubt of the trouble that what was once our democracy is now in.

It doesn’t matter if you think Boris Johnson and his Government, the opposition ‘Remain collective’ or even the Supreme Court was or is right.

If you are looking to identify legitimacy, we can be pretty sure that history will demonstrate that none of them were actually right.

In such troubled times when absurdity rules and MPs and even judges have thrown everything that has underpinned the mechanics of our system of government out of the window, it stands to reason that the people who are still in the positions of true power should and would do everything they believe they can to lead – even if the steps they take subsequently don’t go the way that they should.

Boris Johnson has faced a set of unique circumstances and events as Prime Minister that he has been prevented from addressing appropriately and as he should.

The reality is that his hands were tied in any event the moment that the Fixed Term Parliaments Act was signed off and we already know that he has tried not once, but twice to call a General Election – which any Prime Minister that finds himself without a majority, would taking responsibility then do.

Yes, prorogation was always going to be questionable. But in these strange times when everything is set up against you apart from the majority of the voting public, breaking new ground and stepping outside the realm of precedent is exactly what we should expect our mandated leaders to do.

The current illegitimately sitting and refusing to budge majority of Remain opposition MPs have actually broken the system, and we should have been able to expect that our most senior Judges would look upon the bigger picture at work here, and see the trap that had been set for them, before they gave such a damaging judgement of which all 11 of them are clearly sure.

The circumstances that we are facing don’t or will not allow the immediate changes that we now need to prevent all of this from hitting the floor. That would be the dismissal of this whole Parliament, and its replacement with a form of government that will deliver on the result of the Brexit Vote, have vision, consideration for all and be equitable. Its not a lot to ask when we deserve a lot more.

What is left of the once legitimate framework under which the public elects representatives will not allow us to do that – that is if we are really to try to adhere to the rules that our MPs and even our Judges have now broken. We regrettably now have the right to ask the question – what or rather who are these rules actually for.

History will show that in terms of the Prorogation, Boris was doing the best that he believed he could. Any apology against that, no matter what the Supreme Court may have ruled, will only speed up the fall of this democracy when things are so desperate that we need a completely new way of thinking at the top of Government if anything any politician can now do is going to result in anything remotely good.
