In the space of little more than two years, Boris Johnson has wrecked any notion of decency or moral authority in the seat of power. As if illegally proroguing parliament, lying to the Queen and the House of Commons or enabling corruption with VIP lanes for cronies wasn’t bad enough – now we have something even more scandalous as if that was possible. A shadow government of ultra-wealthy donors is shaping public health and economic policy.

The media’s watchdog role is an illusion. The latest scandal reveals just how dependent journalists are on government
Middle East Eye – 21 January 2022
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s head is on the chopping block. Each day, the media digs up more embarrassing details of parties hosted at his No 10 residence or other government buildings, in flagrant violation of strict lockdown rules enforced on the rest of the country.

It makes no difference what side of the political debate you wave your flag for, trust in the Boris Johnson government has now almost completely collapsed. Whatever you believe, one fact stares us in the face – Britain’s politics is as divisive and toxic as ever and trust in politicians and our political system remains at all-time lows.

Something interesting is happening in capitalist governance. The capitalist class is closing ranks, regularising and professionalising its rule by squeezing out the populist fools. Instinctively they recognise the class battles which lie ahead and they can no longer tolerate those who flippantly raise the aspirations of the masses and then misgovern.

TruePublica published an article in March last year, excerpts of which are below (HERE) regarding Britain’s preparedness plans in the event of a pandemic, which every responsible government in the world will have. The results showed how the Conservative government tested the NHS for a flu-like pandemic, such as Covid 19, over a three-day period in 2016 and then not only ignored its ominous warnings but buried the final report as investing in the NHS did not fit its privatisation agenda ambitions.

In 1539, Henry VIII gained the right to legislate by decree, enabling him to bypass Parliament altogether. And now Boris Johnson, the man who has already tried and failed to suspend Parliament, is taking further cues on democracy from a Tudor King.

By TruePublica: No country has willingly left a postwar trading bloc, especially one of the three global super-powers of today. And because there is no precedent, it is true to say that not only does Brexit represent a very large threat to Britain’s economic future prospects – it does so because it’s just a gamble. And the so-called trade deal Boris Johnson has signed with the EU is very weak. Much of that weakness will develop over the coming months, especially as 80 per cent of Britain’s economy has yet to be negotiated within that agreement.

Claire Fox’s peerage reflects the emergence of an extremist clique as pillars of Johnson’s Brexit establishment. Report: Jonathan Matthews
Were you surprised when one of the very first things Boris Johnson did on becoming Prime Minister was to declare his desire to “liberate” the UK “from anti-genetic modification rules”?

The British Medical Journal is one of the world’s oldest and most respected general medical journals. It has published a damning report that details the Boris Johnson government response to the COVID-19 crisis that can be distilled down to just a few words, – ‘too little, too late and too flawed’.

This is a government of slogans, where confusion now reigns. As Brexit crashes down the list of important policies and is replaced with public health, priorities towards key workers, education, policing and the economy – all behind tackling the C19 crisis, Boris Johnson is losing his new found base in the North, where casualties are highest outside of London. As the public realise the government is now failing in every aspect of fighting this crisis, trust in government is going the wrong way at a crucial time.

As the UK quickly becomes a world leader in death and infections from the Covid-19 pandemic, corporate media are transforming British Prime Minister Boris Johnson into an international Coronavirus bugaboo.
His handling of the pandemic certainly qualifies him for this status. Not only was he the first world leader to tout, then abandon, the discredited, neo-Malthusian “herd immunity” approach, based on the idea that countries should avoid lockdowns and let the virus burn its course, which has now become a rallying cry to the international far right, his own lax attitude towards social distancing nearly killed him two weeks ago as he ended up on oxygen in an NHS intensive care unit.

When the Daily Mail finally admits the government it helped foist into power is nothing more than a veneer of populist slogans – you know as a government, you’ve been unveiled as a worthless profligate band of spurious frauds. The Boris Johnson government has been tested in a crisis and emphatically failed the nation in its entirety. This is what the DM came out with on Wednesday:

“Without a huge national effort to halt the growth of this virus, there will come a moment when no health service in the world could possibly cope; because there won’t be enough ventilators, enough intensive care beds, enough doctors and nurses,” Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson declared Monday.

An editorial piece in The Lancet – the world’s most prestigious, and best known general medical journal warned two months ago of the oncoming conflict between an ill-prepared, under-funded national health service and an indiscriminate invisible killer in the form of the 2019 coronavirus. More recently The Lancet warned again of the problems that health workers would be facing and yet the government took no notice – until it was too late:
