Boris surrendered


"It is a damned fine thing to have been, even if it only lasts for two months, a thing no Greek or Roman ever was." The argument that persuaded Lord Melbourne to become Prime Minister in 1834.

I like Boris but he's obviously not up to the job. If anything, he's crawling on the floor beneath the job. But he is one of the most consequential Prime Ministers in history and his achievement is very great. Brexit. He shares the credit or discredit with Nigel Farage and Michael Gove, though most goes to Nigel Farage.
