Gong wrong, Boris
HoW dispiriting that Boris Johnson saw fit to recommend his father Stanley for a knighthood.
it just makes a mockery of everything: politics, the honours system, all of us. this comes two years after Boris, then Prime Minister, nominated his brother Jo for a peerage as part of the 2019 Dissolution Honours — Jo is now Baron Johnson of Marylebone.
this week rachel Johnson — as yet un- ennobled, but watch this space — says her dad has ‘done more than anyone to deserve an honour’. What cobblers. i can tell you right now that my father has done more than her father to deserve an honour, and i suspect that your father probably did, too.
What a terrible shower the Johnsons are, constantly grooming and petting and ennobling each other in public like a flurry of yellowpelted yetis, richly convinced of their own superiority. if they had any decency they would skip the titles and concentrate on selfless service instead, but they don’t and they can’t, so they won’t.
