It’s a falsehood to say that all MPs bend the truth. There are lots of decent politicians who try to do their best by their constituents. In most parties, MPs are forced to resign if they get caught doing something unconstitutional or illegal. Yet, in the current Tory party it qualifies you for promotion, especially lying.
Thinking that the normal rules don’t apply is definitely an asset. Just take Johnson – an inveterate liar since schooldays, possibly since birth. He’s lied to his employers, his constituents, his lovers, his wives, the queen and country. It’s so obvious, we now see other MPs openly calling him out on this.
With three enquiries runnning, there’s evidently a case to answer, but it’s about far more than decoration, it’s about (dis)honesty with public money – sleaze – and Johnson has a record of profound dishonesty.
Whenever he’s asked something uncomfortable, Johnson likes talking about the vaccine programme. Perhaps he can tell us when there’ll be a vaccine to neutralize sleaze in the government.
