“Ms. Ghani said in a statement released on Sunday that Mr. Johnson had refused to get involved when the issue was raised with him in June 2020, instead urging her to make a formal complaint to the Conservative Party.” — NYT, 2022

In addition to this last month traces of cocaine were discovered in the UK Parliament including near Boris Johnson’s office. Is it possible that Johnson could have been doing cocaine himself? Perhaps. After all he certainly acts like a person on drugs when he knowingly lies, is very jumpy, reactionary, and at times out of control. Labour is now ahead of his party by over 8% in opinion polls and it looks increasingly likely that Keir Starmer could be the next Prime Minister if this all goes south for the Conservatives. Any hope of Johnson restoring his image is gone and the only sensible thing to do is to resign.
