If any other British prime minister had been exposed to even a fraction of the toxic radiation that Boris Johnson has splashed around in lately, it would call for resignation on the spot. Suggesting that the best way to honor the memory of a murdered pro-remain colleague would be to “get Brexit done”? Resign. Found unanimously guilty by the highest court in the land of misleading the Queen in order to unlawfully suspend Parliament for their own political ends? Resign, then apologize, then resign again, re-train as a dental hygienist, and spend the remaining years under an assumed identity.
But all of the above happened to Boris Johnson within the space of three days, and yet he’s still somehow clinging to his position like grim death. But he isn’t quite out of the woods. For buried deep beneath the more immediate matter of the total obliteration of the British constitution is something that might not only bring Boris Johnson down but also land him in prison. And her name is Jennifer Arcuri.
