PARTYGATE is not gone yet. But for now – and despite the BBC’s best efforts – it has been overshadowed by fears of Europe’s biggest military conflict since World War Two.
Downing’s Street the mid-course jaunts are a punch in the gut for all who follow the draconian rules set forth by Number Ten.
They will not be forgotten.
But they are dropping news headlines like Russian tanks prepare to roll.
Alone among European leaders, he was hailed last week as a hero in the besieged Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.
“Thank you very much to the British government, thank you very much Boris Johnson,” said its mayor, former boxer Vitali Klitschko.
Our President Joe Biden flirting, promising that America would stay with Britain “to the end”.
In contrast, Germany was devastated for blocking the sale of rockets from Lithuania to Ukraine.
Berlin’s reputation is in decline, with new Chancellor Olaf Scholz accused of selling out his ally in exchange for a gas pipeline in Siberia.
And French Napoleonic tin magnate, Emmanuel Macron, was caught in a showdown with Moscow over angry Ukrainian voters.
Perhaps to his surprise, Boris Johnson found himself winning applause abroad, if not at home – an award he could only dream of two weeks ago.
Even the Labor Party is rallying after BoJo’s call for a united diplomatic front between NATO and the EU.
Sir Keir Starmereager to wrap myself in Union Jack, so much fun.
He said: “We are united in the UK regardless of the other challenges and arguments we have with the Government.
“When it comes to Russian aggression, we stand together as political parties.”
Starmer is desperate to banish the specter of pro-Russian “peace” campaigner Jeremy Corbyn, for whom Salisbury poisoner Vladimir Putin could do no wrong.
But Sir Keir may have gone too far for some Shadow ministers in terms of how loyal His Majesty’s Most Loyal Opponent to the Prime Minister is embroiled in.
Asked by Sky News’ Trevor Phillips yesterday, Labor health spokesman Wes Streeting repeatedly refused to say he supported Boris.
“We are four square meters behind our NATO allies,” said Mr. Streeting.
“We support Ukraine and the Ukrainian people.”
Is he chasing the boss’s job?
Instead, Mr Streeting tried to smear Boris over allegations of using Russian cash for Tory Party funds.
But this will have little traction with voters.
Especially because today the Prime Minister has another trick up his sleeve as he ends two years of panicking over the pandemic and getting people to use common sense about Covid.
Amid anger from leftist controlling terrorists, Britain will be one of the first countries in the world to escape the virus nightmare and return to normal life.
We can forget about social distancing, put on masks and isolate ourselves and start putting the blame behind our back.
Millions of civil servants will be asked to throw away the Work From Home comforter and start making money.
We still face a cost-of-living crisis but it looks a little less threatening as unemployment falls to record lows, household spending explodes and foreign money pours into companies. Brother.
It won’t be easy, especially for Sun readers.
The cost of food, gasoline and heating is skyrocketing. Some companies will never reopen. It could have been even worse.
Some economists – no fans of Boris Johnson – now predict a rebound could become the Tories’ trump card in 2024.
Soon Scotland Yard’s absurd £1m investigation into Partygate will publish its conclusions.
We will find out if the Prime Minister was slapped with a fixed penalty notice.
But no matter what happens, the Prime Minister has no intention of resigning.
And with Covid retreating like a bad memory and Russia Wildly entering EU borders, it is unlikely to see Tory MPs plunging into a disastrous leadership contest any time soon.
Have you noticed that every TV news nowadays carries a tearful interview?
It could be a patient in the hospital waiting for months for NHS surgery.
Or a care worker is at risk of losing their job. May be the victim of a crime.
In each case, it’s hard not to empathize with miserable people who break down when faced with heartbreaking questions like, “And how does that make you feel?”
Interestingly, the agency responsible for their grief turned out to be an offshoot of this “callous, incompetent, repressive” Tory government.
