I’m probably going to be writing a lot of posts about looking forward in politics and campaigning in the new year.
This post is more of a backwards-looking one.
The Labour Party suffered a horrible defeat on 12th December. In consequence, not only are we going to have a Tory government in Westminster for the next five years (give or take), and Boris Johnson is Prime Minister of that Tory government (a nightmare scenario of Trumpian proportions), and that Tory government has an 80-seat majority giving Boris Johnson the power to do more or less whatever he feels like doing in government – not only all of that, but the UK is going to leave the EU on 31st January and may crash out in no-deal Brexit on 31st December 2020.
Under the circumstances, it is only human to want to find someone or some group of people to blame.
