The Prime Minister is like a man who finds a hornet’s nest in his house – and burns the house to get rid of it.
The wasps, more intelligent than he, flew away as soon as they felt the heat. But the house is gone.
Now he stands by the smoldering ruins, accusing everyone but himself of this senseless catastrophe.
I suspect some of the things he said on Tuesday night will bring him down, especially the scandalous threat to use troops. If we have behaved as well as he claims to believe, how can such things be justified?
The fierce arm-waving appearance of the Prime Minister on Tuesday night has finally warned many previously complacent people of the danger we face. The poor man had said goodbye to reality so clearly that even his most loyal supporters are now wondering if this can continue.
His actions make his words nonsense. It was the same when he said, “I am very, spiritually reluctant to impose any of these things, or to violate anyone’s freedom.”
No he is not. If he were, he would have listened to the many brilliant experts whose wise advice he ignored from the start, such as Sunetra Gupta, John Lee and Carl Heneghan.
They would have told him that the wild prophecies of Imperial College and the equally wild projections presented Monday by Messrs. Vallance and Whitty, Undertakers to the Nation, were not necessarily correct.
Johnson was never forced to strangle the economy and turn everyday life into a crime. He chose to do it.
All he can suggest now is do it again, based on numbers so questionable and stretched that sane people gasp to see them. Isn’t there a saying about doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome?
Well, I think it did. Can you hear the faint but clear sound of changing minds? The fierce arm-waving appearance of the Prime Minister on Tuesday night has finally warned much sooner complacent people of the danger we find ourselves in.
The poor man had said goodbye to reality so clearly that even his most loyal supporters are now wondering if this can continue. After long, slow weeks of getting the country back to work, he told everyone to go home.
Much of the insane, unenforceable jumble of new rules seemed to be based on the belief that Covid only spreads when you get up.
Millions of eyes were opened to the discovery some of us made long ago – that anti-social waiver rules are not based on serious investigation, but on random guesswork and the desire to scare us all into doing everything they tell us.

After spending piles of funny money to bribe the nation to go to restaurants, he put new and daunting restrictions on them. Business owners – who had until now assumed he needed to know what he was doing – eventually broke cover to say these new rules would destroy jobs. In fact, they already have.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak on Thursday chose to avoid any direct reference to the country’s true economic condition. It’s too scary, and he knows it.
If he does end up drawing up a budget, it will be one of the most miserable and toughest anyone has ever seen. Instead, he found a clever way to express his despair with the leadership of the government.
The words “We must learn to live without fear” demand a complete turnaround of a cabinet that has distilled power for six disastrous months out of fear – and used power to destroy the wealth of centuries.
Has there ever been a government in this country that deliberately destroyed so many livelihoods? People mistakenly think that the phrase “herd immunity” sounds cruel (it isn’t. It has been used by vaccination experts for decades.
I propose ‘national immunity’ as a substitute). But the months of leave were much more cruel, maintaining the pretense that dead jobs could be brought back to life.
The bill will come, much too late, but at least it will come. Let’s hope it comes soon. The sooner this absurd Maoist experiment ends, the more survivors there will be.
Now that the National Trust appears to have become a Trotskyist organization primarily concerned with denouncing the sins of the past, I have a suggestion: As the NT has taken over the franchise for spreading left-wing propaganda, I am thinking of creating a New body called the Workers Revolutionary Front, which will buy up beautiful stately homes and encourage visitors to come and see them, with tea and walnut pie slices in a relaxed, chintzy setting. Then the NT can continue the revolution in peace.
It is time for MPs to do their job
On Wednesday, Parliament must vote to renew or repeal the dictatorial Coronavirus law, which it passed six months ago in a kind of mesmerized trance, without a vote.
It should get rid of this filthy, despotic thing. And you can help. You must now email your MPs in large numbers. Don’t try to reason with them.
Be polite, short and sour. Suppose you have noticed that MPs have stopped working for which they receive more than £ 80,000 a year.
They don’t represent you. They have had hundreds of thousands of jobs destroyed without any protest.
They don’t sue the government. Ask if they think people who aren’t doing their job should keep working with high salaries. Remind them that they can be removed in the next election. Leave it at that.
It’s the one argument most of these boobies can understand. But please do.
Grandparents won’t fall for Nicola’s filthy video
The Scottish government has made one of the nastiest propaganda films I’ve seen outside of a tyranny. It shows an attractive young woman making a cup of tea for a man who is believed to be her grandfather.
But horror movie scores and disturbing special effects turn this innocent act of kindness into a malicious murder.
The woman (who, wicked thing, has dared to spend an evening of fun with friends) is infected by the hated virus.
The watchman sees her slimy greenish handprints scattered across the kitchen and the kettle, then she sees her face smeared with sick mud, which she carelessly passes on to her grandparent, who innocently thanks her for the “delicious cup of tea.”
Implication: the deceived old fool will die for her cruel carelessness.

The Scottish government says this poison targeted the ‘non-compliant’ and is an ‘impactful and memorable way to remind them of the very real risks posed by the virus’.
Well this is all bilge. Grandparents are not stupid or deceived.
Many of us would rather see our grandchildren in the years we have left than cringe at their approach or hide from them. Young people are usually very responsible and are likely to take Covid’s precautions too seriously. And then there is this.
Covid-19 very rarely kills healthy people, young or old. Most of the victims are very old and suffer from serious underlying conditions.
As such, they are much more likely to be killed by the government dumping them in a poorly protected nursing home than to be killed by their frail grandchildren.
Make a movie about that, why not you, Nicola Sturgeon, instead of trying to put happy families against each other?
