Spot on @JolyonMaugham.
The kid everyone was scared of at school wasn’t the biggest or the toughest. They were the ones willing to do things others wouldn’t do. The ones without moral limits or fear of consequences.
This is Johnson & Cummings.
We know they’ll do anything. We know conventions mean nothing to them. The law may not mean that much to them. Consequences for others are irrelevant. No appeal to reason can work. We can’t hope to awaken a moral sense. They have none.
But they have a weak spot. Everything they want relies on them having power. It is both a means and an end in itself. This is a fatal weakness. A sovereign Parliament, and ultimately the people, can take that from them.
Parliament can take back control.
But this is dependent on how far MPs are willing to go, and it must be all the way. Not a tentative shove, but a knockout punch to the bullies who don’t believe their victims have it in them.
And we must support them - all of them - in this, and give them the courage they need.
It’s happening Reg. It’s actually happening.
