WHEN Boris Johnson won the 2019 General Election, he promised a People’s Government. Now as he celebrates his first year as the UK’s Prime Minister (or is it really Dominic Cummings?), we see what this means.

The Cabinet is comprised of yes-men, who owe their positions to Boris, and are thus his puppets.

The Conservative Party has been purged of any who dared to disagree with him, and the same process is being applied to the heads of the Civil Service.

Parliamentary process is reduced to being a rubber stamping exercise, with the Government being given the power to make the important decisions without the need for Parliamentary consent (any scrutiny being after the event, when it is too late).

Power is constantly being concentrated in the hands of Whitehall.

I am irresistibly reminded of the so-called People’s Government of the former USSR.

I had no truck with Jeremy Corbyn and his left-wing extremists, but by giving power to Boris and his Politburo of right-wing extremists, it seems we have jumped out of the frying pan into the fire.
