Of all the false premises under which Brexit was sold, none was more jaw-droppingly dishonest than the idea that it was to put one over on the elites, those high-ups who wanted Good Honest Hardworking People to do as they said, not as they did. If we voted to leave, we would put a stop to that sort of thing. We would take back control!
Bozo Père bust the lockdown to go to his second home in south-west England. But this was not sufficiently rubbing the proletariat’s nose in the crap: he had a suitably upmarket villa in Greece, wished to personally supervise work on it so he could rent it out and score More And Bigger Paycheques For Himself Personally Now, and so he has travelled to that country in flagrant defiance of his own son’s urging against non-essential travel.has been splashed all over the pages of the Mail, thereby alienating yet more Brits, and ensuring that whenever Bozo and his pals urge adherence to the lockdown, the response will be defiance, citing not only the shamelessness of chief Downing Street polecat Dominic Cummings, but also the PM’s own father.
And although the Mail does not, for once, tell readers how much Stan’s villa is worth, it does reveal “The four-bed villa in Pelion has a pool and terraces with views of the mountains and the sea. The beach is only a five-minute walk through an olive grove”. Bozo Père claims he needs to “Covid Proof” the place. Bullshit. He’s gone on holiday.
He also pointed out the problem here. “Boris Johnson: ‘The problem is not with the rules, it’s with people not understanding the rules’ … Stanley Johnson: *understands the rules so poorly that he books a separate flight through Bulgaria to circumvent the rules he hasn’t understood*”. Bozo Père spells it out: find a way round any ban, and just carry on as normal. The elites once more laughing at the little people.
There is an elite that has taken ordinary people for granted. The problem for those people is that, in voting for Brexit, they changed nothing. Because they voted against an elite that was not there - on the say-so of the real elite who have taken them for mugs.
Nothing’s going to stop Stanley Johnson’s free movement. Now who’s taking back control?
