Let’s not get excited now. Even if Johnson goes, the Tories will still be lording it over us; the chumocracy, the entitlement, the social and economic vampirism ain’t going away. Whoever takes over will continue to privatise the NHS, coddle big business, trash the environment, persecute refugees, outlaw protest and all the rest of it. 

The sociopathy and the arrogance is not going away. 

Johnson resigning/being forced out would be only the latest facile twist in the spectacle of our dereliction.

The best we can hope for is a brief spasm of schadenfreude before we turn back to warming our hands at the flaming brazier of thwarted hopes.
