OK Mercer was trying to protect soldiers from prosecution, which isn't exactly the noblest of causes, but it's the first chink in Johnson's armour.
There'll be a bit of Mailite Top Trumping going on over that resignation.

Care to expand on "connected".
Are you implying she's the Scout Regalia* of the London tories?

* A very expensive "town bicycle" M'Lud.

IIRC involved with the son on some environmental "charity" of the sort that doesn't seem to do much save offer trips to sunny places for people who can afford them anyway. Although getting rich connected Brits into contact with morally flexible equatorial regimes might be a prize in itself.

As for the Triumph Regalia, I prefer the analogy that she's working through the party like a 90s ladette presenter through a premiership team.

The most naked of naked corruption.

Surely this has got be it for the pork haystack? Or will his client press sweep it under the rug with barely a whimper of outrage?

Their use of the pandemic is like Germany in 1934.

The client press broom has "Don't you know there's a pandemic on" painted on its handle.

44 percent is his later approval rating. Sick of reading considered analysis of his popularity that avoids patronising or insulting voters, as they don’t wash. We’re living through the last gasp era of the self-entitled white man who know who Trump, Le Pen and Johnson are and want them to be absolute cunts towards anyone who isn’t them. Tories who take leadership acumen and character seriously have deserted the party and only ever existed in small numbers.
