She's not missing a thing.
There is little more ominous than a policy that politicians feel they must pursue far beyond reason, on the basis that going back on it would look bad, or disorganised, or weak. Furthermore, there is no character less suited to making big calls than a man who would prefer to stick his head in the sand than see it Photoshopped into a Scrooge hat on the front page of a newspaper. Unfortunately, that’s our prime minister. Part of me wonders whether attempting to save face is this government’s defining characteristic. (If only there was some other particularly extremist version of a policy they were following through on that could help me back up this theory.)

With a heavy heart, Johnson will always remind us who the real victim is: him

Do take the time to click on the 'Sir Richard Evans’s majestic review' link. Others here are more qualified to opine as to how badly Johnson's submission would have failed a history 'O' level, but fark me!

Marina on the latest lockdown.
Like a lot of comically weak men, Johnson is presumed to be an “alpha male” by other inadequates. Only two weekends ago, a prime ministerial aide panted to the Sunday Times: “This is Boris’s world now. The rest of us are just living in it.” Repurposing Dean Martin’s famous line about Frank Sinatra to describe the prime minister is certainly bold. We do, however, undoubtedly all have to live in Johnson’s defective psychology at the worst possible time for it.

Like the anti-Littlejohn, Marina makes Tuesdays and Fridays bearable. Here she is on Toby Young, not being cancelled, and fish.
