A long time in politics
I wanted to write about something else, but I can’t. Boris Johnson comma, Prime Minister full stop , has resigned or has he? It seems he has agreed to go and they are now as ever haggling about if he can hang on to September as a caretaker while the Tories elect a successor. It’s been an exciting 48 hours, started by Savid Javid and Rishi Sunak resigning in both gentile and savage terms. They have been followed by over half the government and counting.
