Peter Oborne was right about Boris Johnson all along. Watch his summary of the Johnson era [VIDEO]

Boris Johnson’s ethos: Peter Oborne explains how he was able to get away with it for three years.

Peter Oborne’s takedown of Boris Johnson is well worth preserving because his predictions about the future are already coming true:

Oborne’s claims about Johnson’s departure from office ring true: he’ll want to shape the Tory Party while out of office – so he can come back in the future. That’s why there’s a movement to claim that he is a great man who has been pushed out of office by pygmies.

On the subject of pygmies, Oborne doesn’t hold back when describing the Tory MPs who backstabbed Johnson in order to have him removed: they supported his lies, they repeated his lies on television. “All were complicit in the moral squalor.”

He goes on to say that the Tory Party is now owned by non-dom press barons and oligarchs who ran the media machine that enabled Johnson to lie his way into a huge Parliamentary majority at the 2019 general election – and that these people were now working to get their chosen candidate installed as Tory leader and prime minister.

Look at the qualities Oborne identifies as those required by these people: they are embodied in Liz Truss.

So they got what they wanted and she will work for them – not for the good of the UK.

Curiously, Oborne identifies Ben Elliot, the now-former Tory co-chairman who raised huge amounts of funds for Johnson, as a key figure in the determination of the new leader. At the moment that Liz Truss was named leader, Elliot resigned.

Chillingly, Oborne explains how he tried to get an article published, showing how often and blatantly Johnson was lying to the people of the UK in the run-up to the 2019 general election – and failed. The mass media would not accept it, despite running everything possible that was derogatory of then-Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Eventually the piece was published in Open Democracy on the social media.

What awaits us now? Right-wing populism and fascism, according to Oborne: personified in Liz Truss.
