Boris Johnson: Can I have that to go, please?

The days leading up to the election, I got bombarded with ads telling me to prevent a hung Parliament so that he could get Brexit “oven-ready”. It worked. Johnson got his blue (Conservative) Parliament.

What did he do first, to get cooking?

  • Limit the role of Parliament, now that it is no longer a “hung” Parliament, a Parliament that does not vote his way. Surprise surprise.
  • Toss out workers’ rights. Surprise surprise.
  • Throw out concern for people who flee from wars. No surprise there either.

No longer such a tasty dish, is it?

Apparently, another thing that he plans to do is put judges in the courts who will do what he wants them to do. Brenda Hale is set to retire in January, by the way. I am sorry to see her go.
