As much as he would like to be seen as a modern Winston Churchill, it would seem as though Johnson is more like Chamberlain in terms of his behaviour and competence over COVID-19, planning rules, the call to end PHE, the Decisions taken by Ofqual and the border decisions set out by Priti Patel. We now need a sense of clear leadership that will resolve some of these issues in an effective way. We need the Conservative Party to recognise that they lack the leadership and although they have a major number of seats, that they will be badly responded to if they simply allow Johnson, Rees-Mogg and Gove along with Dominic Cumming to remain in the leadership along with Patel, Hancock, Jenrick and Williamson. Clearly the MPs need to re-emerge into Parliament before the end of the recess as other parts of our public sector are battling with some of the issues created by the Government. The University organisations are now being forced to determine how to assess a much wider range of students than they were dealing with on Friday and a significant part of the NHS is now being restructured from Public Health England to another body while the major part of the NHS is still trying to resolve how to deal with COVID. The Navy is being set out to attack people in small boats and the local authorities are facing a number of challenges from the planning decisions and the educational sector is about to deal with the return of schools with very few elements of the provision that was being promised for early June. The final and arguably one of the most challenging issues is the EU departure which could seriously close down large parts of our economy.
Clearly the Conservative Party have a larger number of MPs but they are not necessarily capable of managing the nation without support in a meaningful way from some of the people in Labour and the SNP parties along with Caroline Lucas.
