After Margaret Thatcher rescued the British economy from the pit the Socialists had dropped it into, and driven the Argies out of the Falklands, her position was sabotaged not by the Opposition, but from within her own party. All the good she’d done was forgotten, and out she went.
And so it goes, again, with the man who successfully got the Brits out of the foul EU and stood up to that vile Russian thug Putin when everyone else was going all Neville Chamberlain:
Boris Johnson is a student of Shakespeare – but today he is the victim of his own Roman tragedy after being brutally knifed by pals.
Once the ultimate popular leader who defied political gravity, his premiership has been brought crashing down by his own Tory troops.
His bloody ousting is the climax of a spectacular fall from grace after storming to a huge landslide victory less than three years ago.
The only thing that may save the not-so Conservative Party is that the not-so Loyal Opposition is a bloody shambles.
I shall discuss this latest example of Perfidious Albion with Mr. Free Market over the weekend, and see what he has to say.
