Home   |         NEW: (hypothetically starring) VIC REEVES as LUKE SKYWALKER .. in "Waiting for Godot, the hollywood version".

I'm an "ex-public-schoolboy" and I have considered one day being an MP or PM, and if I were Boris today, personally I'd feel humiliated. Consider what a real victory can look like: << For the first time in 37 years, we have a Triple-Crown winner. American Pharaoh didn't win by a nose. He won by five and a half lengths! It was thrilling to watch him pull away from a group comprised of the fastest horses on the planet, to see him establish a lead that it was increasingly clear would be impossible for any of the other horses to overcome. It was an elevating spectacle. Joe Draper, wrote in The New York Times that "[t]he fans in a capacity crowd strained on their tiptoes and let our a roar from deep in their souls. It was going to end, finally - this 37-year search for a great racehorse." >>   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Winning an amazing battle is an amazing feeling. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Boris spent his life dreaming of being PM.

Removal of resistance: To be PM you'd have to fight a brave fight, against all odds, and come out on top. Unification: Boris hasn't even been elected PM, and the circs around his becoming 'leader' of a broken government whose majority has been lost - are not the stuff of legends. Read the article by Counterpunch's M.G. Piety below. Boris will never know what it feels like to win an amazing victory. Corbyn, meanwhile, has defeated many Tory PMs already. The party clings on to power pathetically, using blackmail and bribes. The Prime Ministers keep falling, one after the other. Corbyn is invincible. Let the lemmings continue toward the cliff. Go on Boris, lemming along you lemming man.
