Boris Goes Full Godwin

Boris Johnson has gone full Godwin. More evidence, if any were needed, that Boris is an utterly cynical charlatan who says things he doesn’t even believe, and is willing to sacrifice the future of the nation to further his own short-term political ambitions. He cares far more about becoming Prime Minister that whether or not Britain leaves the European Union.

I hope a critical mass of the British public is smart enough to see through him.

And no, Leftists, this doesn’t let Ken Livingstone off the hook on anti-Semitism. Both Boris and Ken have been using classic internet troll tactics, saying something which is technically factually correct but ripped so far out of historical context it’s a dog-whistle for a far bigger lie. Hitler neither wanted to create a European equivalent of the United States nor cared about the future of Germany’s Jews “before he went mad”. To assign the same motives as Adolf Hitler to either the EU or to Israel is utterly grotesque, and it shouldn’t be necessary to have to explain why.

    Share your hope, but it is a hope not a forecast On both sides of the Atlantic bogus anti-establishment figures are tapping the disillusionist mine for votes. And why is Labour not coming out stronger for continued EU membership? Still there’s a month to go.

    Labour’s problem is Corbyn’s support for Remain comes over as half-hearted; it’s as if his instincts are to follow the line of the Bennite left in the 70s and 80s, but this isn’t the hill he’s prepared to die on.
