Is the #DowningStreetParty a dead cat? No. And here’s the reason

Temper, temper: Boris Johnson thugging it up at the dispatch box (it doesn’t matter when).

A large number of our political agitators are voicing frustration at the relentless focus on a Christmas party that took place almost a year ago.

There are far more pressing matters happening right now, they say – like the Policing Bill, the Nationality and Borders Bill, the Health and Care Bill. These attack our fundamental rights as UK citizens and are likely to pass without comment because of the party.

Well… yes they are.

But there’s nothing the public can do about that now.

The choice was made in December 2019 when 14 million people voted Conservative against their better interests and Boris Johnson was installed in Downing Street as publicly-elected prime minister (he had only been elected by his own party previously).

Since then, the wider public have discovered what This Writer and many others of us in the media knew already – that Boris Johnson is a wrong ‘un; a liar, corrupt, and despotic.

The revelation that a Christmas Party took place at his residence, 10 Downing Street, on December 18 last year, when all such gatherings had been banned by Johnson himself, and Johnson’s subsequent lies about it – including at Prime Minister’s Questions today (December 8, 2021), demonstrate very clearly that he is not fit to rule.

Some are saying that he should be allowed to apologise and then we can move on with the other matters, because apologising weakens him somehow.

I don’t see it that way.

Apologising will merely allow this corrupt liar to continue spreading lies and corruption.

Resigning weakens the whole government and will bring demands for an election – because whoever replaces Johnson will not have a mandate from the electorate.

That’s why we need to see Johnson’s resignation, now.

Let’s remember that what his people (and possibly Johnson himself) did is utterly vile: they had a huge, joyful party while many of us were suffering and some were dying in isolation because their rules kept family members and loved ones away.

Johnson himself then joined with his staff and lied about the event. He knew a party had happened because it was in his own residence and his own staff were freely laughing and joking about it, days afterwards. It is unrealistic for him to suggest he was unaware.

The whole episode shows the contempt in which Johnson holds the people who voted him into power. He’s where he wanted to be, and the rest of us can die, alone and in misery. For that alone, he must be removed.
