Well what a day last Thursday was. Bring a tour guide I am used to bumping into the great and the good as well as the odd generally scummy government minister. You never know what quite you have to contend with be it Marathons, protests, riots, strikes, marches, terrorists but for once the unexpected interruption was a very light-hearted affair.
People often remember where they were when they hear of news-worthy events such as 9/11, Princess Diana and many more. For me, I was sat in cubicle 2 of the Corinthia Hotel listening to the piped in music of Vivaldi as famous actors such as Dame Judi Dench and Sir Ian McKellan recite poetry and short literary passages. The news flashed up on my iPad, Boris was about to quit!
Obviously few people have campaigned longer or as vigorously against this corrupt, sleazy, incompetent government than I have and the 3 million others he Excluded from any and all support during the Covid pandemic. I absolutely despise him and his Chancellor who jumped ship 2 days earlier. There is nothing that could happen to them that would be too bad as far as I’m concerned and generally it seems to be the case for those in the same position as myself. Having spoken up about them on the tv and radio and newspapers multiple times, been debated in Parliament and with no joy, I don’t think anyone can blame me. I was so disappointed that Putin didn’t get him when he went to Ukraine a few months ago, what sort of incompetent tyrannical dictator is he and as for Putin?!?! lol
Much to his surprise and horror, I came face to face through a non-moving car with Boris a few months ago and you could see by how his eyes widened, he was rather shocked at the vehemence of my feelings towards him and my use of a tried and trusted ancient Anglo-Saxon term for him earned the smirks and grins of the watching police who obviously agreed with every word I said.
So when the news broke, I walked two minutes to the gates of Downing Street, the whole area of which has become increasingly looking like a bunker for a dictatorship with barriers all over the place both there and outside Parliament. It’s almost as if he and his government don’t want to meet every day people such as myself.
There was barely anyone there however and so I went to meet my tourists and get on with my day.
As the morning wore on, it became clear that something of a friendly on the spur of the moment gathering of friends was taking place in Whitehall as vehicles drove by and people walked and cycled by playing music from Benny Hill and Always Look On The Bright Side of Life.
Not everyone was happy though, a few hard-core government ministers and MPs went to Downing Street to give support to their man. Perhaps with such little talent, they’d never get a good job anywhere else. Going to Downing Street to feel sorry for Boris resigning is rather like feeling bad at the supermarket for the people who make Imodium when your diarrhoea gets better.
Look at this charming lady, Andrea Marie Jenkyns looking like she just had an argument with her next door neighbour in the worst council estate in Britain. She isn’t just an MP but a Conservative government Minister for Education… the person in charge of school! The really disgusting thing about this coming from a Conservative Minister is that she is using the vulgar American gesture rather than the centuries old and much more classy two finger salute. That alone means she isn’t a proper Tory to me… what was Boris thinking promoting her. The Honourable Member for the 17th Century, Jacob Rees-Mogg would be horrified.
I was there it was a very friendly atmosphere but if you owe everything for Boris then having, 5-600 people cheering his demise must have wound her up. Perhaps she only likes illegal Downing Street parties rather than our entirely legal one outside.
My tourists as always loved being caught up with things and they go back across the world spreading the word of how contemptuous Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak and Oliver Dowden are… one or two have even shouted a piece of their minds at their colleagues. During the eviction celebrations they enjoyed the friendly atmosphere so much we stayed for 15 minutes so they could immerse themselves in it.
One of the fitting things about it all is that on his resignation speech above the handful of applauding lackeys in Downing Street, you can hear us all in the street with the song “Bye-Bye Boris” blaring out. What a humiliating way to be remembered!
Of course typical of Boris, he has resigned but not yet left. I can imagine he will do everything possible to drag things out. He will end up being pulled out of a secret compartment in the Downing Street gardens like when Saddam Hussein was found, except looking a little more dishevelled.
Now there is a scramble for successors and slimy fishy Rishi Sunak who is being backed by non other than my MP and everyones favourite Chocolate Teapot, Oily Oliver Dowden A man who has killed more people I know than Cancer, Covid and terrorists put together and now he has put his hat in the ring… just months after being fined by police for breaking the law, having it revealed his own corrupt billionaire wife isn’t even a British taxpayer despite receiving a fortune in money that I wasn’t allowed… before closing some of her companies down and keeping the money! And Rishi himself famously was outed as to having a Green Card entitling him as a multi-millionaire to go and life in America…. why on earth would anyone vote for that vile little creature. He even admits he has no working class friends.
Not that any of this makes us happy or negates the discrimination and suffering inflicted on us by the government. We want justice and fairness and equality, that is all. So the fight definitely goes on but it is nice to see them suffering too and until then, revenge is a dish best served cold.
