Of course, Tony Blair is not quite the nincompoop that Boris Johnson is; indeed, with Tony the evidence would appear to suggest that what we have is more of a couch case, something for a headshrinker to earn a few brownie points on, and maybe there is a wee boy in there who was not quite as privileged as his school chums?
Not so, Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, who was a very privileged schoolboy, but who, as far as the old grey matter is concerned, really does appear to be at least mildly retarded. “Res ipsa loquitur” (the thing speaks for itself) he is reported to have said when asked to explain his love of Latin. Yes, the thing does indeed speak for itself and, perhaps, it is time to let Boris do some of the talking and as this upper-class twit’s gaffs are an almost daily occurrence, perhaps we should go for two of the most recent.
Now, umpteen years attending hooray henry “educational” institutions might have drilled a few Latin lexical chunks into his tiny brain, but it certainly didn’t facilitate a worthwhile knowledge of the planet. That is why, while it might be that he has had a little tête-à-tête with Tony regarding the work being done by the fromer PM’s Africa Governance Initiative, it is more likely that his belief that Africa could do with some British values started to take root in primary school. Still, always the believer that our being in society determines our consciousness, I see that as almost to be expected. However, when the British Foreign Minister refers to Africa as “that country” it really is time to question the sanity of a system which allows this idiot to hold any sort of office. Of course, thisi might be nothing more than a slip of the tongue, parapraxis ergo a freudian slip, and maybe Boris is just about to follow Tony onto that couch.
Academic caution is, however, advised and being consistenly the absolute idiot, not only do we know what we get with Boris, we also know …. Well, he is really just an idiot and there he was a few weeks ago saying it would be a “fantastic thing” if Britain had a “more sensible system” for dealing with migration between Britain and its “true friend”, Australia. Great no freedom of movement in Europe, but in Boris’s mad, mad, world, the Brits get to recolonise Africa, which in a sense they are doing anyway, and maybe even allow freedom of movement between them and their “true friends” ……. No need to speculate on who these “true friends” are?
