A blessing in disguise

If there is one benefit the Coronavirus pandemic – and the subsequent lockdown – has granted us, it is that of isolation.

It has allowed us occasional bloggers some time. So we are able to say what we like, when we like. Which can’t be a bad thing.

At present, the important thing seems to be the daily Downing Street briefing which – in the absence of the Prime Minister – seems to be performed by any minister who happens to be handy. Hancock one day; Raab the next; Sunak on another. What are the Foreign Secretary and the Chancellor doing there?

So far, we’ve only seen Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, once at the time of writing this.

Coincidence? I doubt it. Patel did once said that all immigrants should be sent home, unless they could earn a decent wage within a week or so. Not for nothing has she been described as the Mistress of Smirk. She constantly seems to have an expression on her face that seems to say: Look at me. I’m in the Cabinet and you’re not.

At this rate, there will be a vacuum of power at the top of the Tory party, and we shall see a new leader of that odious bunch of self-regarding twats sitting round the Cabinet table.

What a blessing that would be. So long as it’s not Gove.
