So Boris censors a critical journalist and tries to manipulate coverage for propaganda purposes all the while standing in front of a giant slogan saying “Let’s take back control”. Right wing politicians really should be more careful of their symbolism, especially when they are arguing against European integration. Europe is under tremendous pressure right now and nasty far right parties are rising in influence. It would be naive and foolish to think that fracturing the EU, which has been a bulwark against the destructive forces that have riven Europe through the centuries, would not somehow be our problem. Or that future right wing politicians might not emerge from under the banner of ‘taking back control’ but with rather more sinister intentions than Boris, who is much better at standup than he is at standing up for British interests.
