Yes, Boris’ ‘Pilot’ exemption from having to do what everyone else does may have been stopped. But it marks a sinister public upgrading of the contempt this Government has for us all

From before it all began, I did not agree that Lockdowns were necessary and certainly did not believe that the measures the Chancellor took to support people financially thereafter were either the right ones or that they would actually help everyone as anything done properly should have.

Many ‘lockdown sceptics’ have since concluded that there is something far more conspiratorial about the whole Johnson Government approach. But we have just been witnessing the behaviour typical of weak people corrupted by the power of high office. And everything we have experienced to date since Covid arrived is the blunt end of stupidity at its worst.

On balance of probabilities, Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak and all of the politicians and the advisors in cahoots with them didn’t begin imposing ‘emergency legislation’ on us, thinking that they would get away with even a fraction of the things that they now believe they have.

But as the British people have repeatedly done the right thing and adhered to the outlandish measures they have imposed, the confidence of those who were never fit to lead the Country in the first place has grown. So much so that they have edged nearer and nearer to the point where the absolute power they awarded themselves has corrupted them absolutely.

Today, they finally reached the point where they felt they could pull these stunts publicly – and get away with it – because they and only they know what’s best for everyone and they and only they have what it takes to get things done.

The contempt for the British People that it took to announce that they were going to deliberately flout the very same rules they have imposed upon everyone else – with considerable cost to us all – is breath-taking in the extreme.

Yes, the reaction from the media calling them out precipitated a U-turn very quickly. But to see our ‘leaders’ reach a point where they are prepared to be so publicly obvious about their own abuse of the Covid rules now gives the lie to the legitimacy of the claims they have made about Covid and the robustness of the science they have used to justify imposing such damaging totalitarian measures upon us.

It was clear for some to see what the Johnson Government were doing right from the start. But we can all now see just how badly we are being governed by politicians who are unfit for the Offices they hold. We can see how far we are from governance that is morally right whilst those driving these dubious rules and using manipulation to scare us sail increasingly close to the winds of being legally wrong – if that’s not what they have really been doing all along.

The problem. The big problem that we all have to face is there is no way that we can remove and replace this Government anytime soon.

Yes, with the ability that Boris has to set the agenda and control the narrative, there is a chance his confidence will push him to call the next General Election long before 2024.

But we then have another massive problem to deal with: There is no political alternative to the politicians that we have already got – with all of our MPs – whether Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat or any other sitting or currently aspiring to be in Parliament being motivated by anything other than their own agendas – exactly the same.

It might not matter so much if the Covid pandemic were already over. But it isn’t.

Furthermore, the Johnson Government mishandling of just about everything – not least of all the impact of what has been systemic mental abuse of millions of now fearful and vulnerable people for no other purpose than social control – has created problems for us all. Many growing problems that are not even yet apparent to many yet are set to inflict a painful legacy upon all of us – perhaps for many years to come.

We are in a mess. A serious mess. And it will get much worse. For a start, the impact of the profligate spending and money printing that Rishi Sunak has burdened us with when it was not necessary is likely to feed into what is likely to be a worldwide financial depression. A crisis that will touch everything relating to money that will probably be set off by the collapse of the US Dollar – after the Biden government also embarked on a series of financial decisions that have echoed the absolute ridiculousness of our own.

Do we really want politicians like Boris Johnson or Rishi Sunak ‘leading’ us or even touching the levers of power in this Country if the problems we are facing because of them develop as they probably will?

Regrettably, we must accept that shouting, jumping up and down, or using every media channel to scream loudly how justified our arguments or how wrong what the Johnson Government is doing will not force them to listen and it will not create change. These are small-minded people with myopic outlooks, committed only to their own cause.

Boris and his chumocracy do not see any threat to their position. Labour are struggling under Kier Starmer, and a by-election victory in a historically blue constituency for the Liberal Democrats doesn’t tell a Party like todays Conservatives that the yellow peril is back.

Outside of Parliament there is lots of talk and the elevation of public profiles for people like Laurence Fox and Richard Tice who hold laudable but repellently focused goals that do not connect with the majority of people. Isolated political thinking – no matter the sense it makes will ever engage the Country in a way that will win a General Election.

Boris and his advisors look at all of this and believe they are untouchable. They really to believe that for the foreseeable future, the British political landscape is theirs.

However, the establishment of a new political Party for All or movement that is inclusive, addresses all the issues – and not just those that are Covid related, reaches right across our different communities and treats voters as adults and with the respect and empathy that they all should receive, will quickly be seen by those in Westminster in a very different way.

If people can come together, put the specific ideas and approaches that they cherish to one side, engage in open dialogue and then work together to formulate an agenda and manifesto that genuinely works for and on behalf of all, the next General Election will be there to be won, simply because the British People will be presented at the ballot box with a real and credible choice.

In the meantime, if things do change and take a turn for the worse, we will already have a movement of people brought together and motivated by the right reasons, ready to step in and lead if the Government collapses and there is a need for something that will be good for us all to fill the void.
