Boris Johnson, FUCK OFF

Boris Johnson, FUCK OFF

Megan Sherman UK//1:55pm, Apr 8th '22

You're a self-aggrandizing, conniving shit, Boris Johnson, but sadly, something tells me you're just not the kind of person to sit and reflect at length in dignity about the failure and moral quandary of your policies. One can only hope you prove me wrong.

Unless you've been living under a rock or have been on vacation on the other side of the universe, you've probably heard of a lady called She Gray, endowed with the task of dressing the government down, after it was revealed they repeatedly and systematically violated stringent public health and safety regulations put in place to mitigate the devastation of covid. However, the centralisation and emboldening of executive power under this administration means that even a democratic inquiry organised in high levels of the state, that categorically proves corruption, isn't sufficiently powerful to back Johnson into a corner he can only escape by resigning. What Johnson believes about his misdemeanors is a throwback to the Watergate era; I'm the prime minister so it's OK. Johnson built his cult of personality by presenting himself as an affable joker, but his sinister policies, laying the foundations of an Orwellian future, are no laughing matter.

In recent exchanges in parliament, perhaps unsurprisingly in deceit, Johnson emphatically insisted that he followed and adhered to and did not breach the law, despite there being robust evidence to the contrary. Maintaining fictions that fly in the face of facts is a core feature of tyranny. According to Johnson left is right, right is wrong, up is down, warping and driving down standards in political discourse. He invents a topsy turvy, farcical world irreconcilable to values of truth and justice.

To deflect criticism he repeats common complaints about the dangers of "wokeism." The complaints are insincere. The bandying about of the "woke" slur is exactly the sort of lazy stereotyping in political language that Orwell despised. It is not surprising that a man who gets kicks off making fun of minorities is so ardently against people who believe everybody deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Legislation which has been branded as "politically correct" is not a restriction on democratic expression, rather it enriches democratic expression by making sure it is not tainted by hate speech or intimidation which negates the rights of minorities. Johnson is wrong to conflate political correctness with censorship, but it's hard to think of a time when being wrong has ever stopped him running his mouth.

If you really think about it, Johnson and his Tories are perhaps the most politically correct people in the country. They are predominantly white and staffed by a legion of ex-bankers and other establishment types. They have the sympathy of the hard-right media which controls political discourse in this country. They are old-school traditionalists and elitists. Nothing about them is a protest, nothing about them is progressive.

It's amazing how people on a crusade to call out leftist hypocrisy don't afford half as much zeal or attention to the more plentiful and abundant hypocrisies of the right. A lot of this rampant criticism of the left's pathology is more rooted in unhelpful holier-than-thou posturing than any desire to be earnest anyway. The earnest work of social justice is about more than sitting around accusing people of trying to ruin the country because they have a modicum of sympathy for repressed minorities. No leaps forward were made my people sat around pointing fingers, and I doubt none ever will be. We should have charitable critique of ideas, yes, but it should be charitable, which Johnson's commentary on the left isn't. Frankly it is puffed-up drivel, and acts as a diversion from the real issues of social justice. FUCK OFF, Boris Johnson, but sadly, something tells me you're just not the kind of person to sit and reflect at length in dignity on whether or not you may be flawed. One can only hope you prove me wrong.
