Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Boris was looking very chagrined yesterday. My guess is various important people had been shouting at him.

Unfortunately he's the worst person in the world - with the possible exception of Kim Jong-Un - to fix the mess. He's a mediocre journalist, an entertaining popular historian, and a Berlusconi-style politician.

He's not blessed with any particular imagination, and his term in London was full of showy pork-scented failures.

The question that no one is asking - why are all our politicians such revolting people?

There are literally millions of people in the UK who would run the country far more effectively than anyone from either party.  Instead of ranting about worker reform - i.e. lower wages - the developed countries should be thinking long and hard about constitutional reform.

Politics desperately needs to stop being a 19th century blood sport populated by losers and lawyers. Power should be a reward for clear evidence of competence and foresight, and not for being able to sell turds to the peasants.
