The Elephant Entering The Room

The Honorable Representative from the Great State of Texas asks an important question:
Raises the question: if a global pandemic is a concern, why would we want policies that encourage more people crossing illegally & released unaccounted for into the country?
Well, quite. Of course, round here, BoJo's just said 'hold my champers'.

Forget sneaking in, they won't even stop anyone jetting in from Venice. It's a plague and a pandemic, but let's not go crazy here and start questioning muh open borders.

The left has spent a hundred years sneering at World War I generals and their cold-blooded decisions to keep throwing away lives with hopeless, head on attacks. Now, suddenly, open borders are in the firing line and these people are all but giving out white feathers to anyone who questions the sanity of Italian citizens being locked down and unable to go anywhere.... except Heathrow.

Hey, I consider The Omega Man to be an underrated conservative classic, but I don't want to live in it!

All of which explains BoJo's reluctance to do.... well, anything really. Unlike the mainstream of the left, he's at least smart enough to realise the obvious problem with putting all manner of limits on people inside the UK, but none at all on people arriving here. He's just not smart enough to realise that he's torpedoed the exact reason why he got a majority in the first place.

The whole reason why Boris Johnson got a whacking majority where Fat Dave and Theresa Won't failed is precisely because he came across as someone who regarded Britain as something more than just some failing division of a global multinational. Fat Dave in particular always looked like he'd be quite happy to jump ship and go be PM of somewhere else if they offered him the right deal. Boris was supposed to be better than that, but it turns out that when push came to shove, his true loyalty was to Globacorp after all.
