The Gathering Storm

We look forward to Boris Johnson's grime retort to Stormzy after what he managed to get an enormous, mostly white and middle-class, audience to chant last night. 

That audience was larger than the Conservative Leadership electorate. Probably, so will be the turnout at the Tolpuddle Martyrs' Festival. And certainly, so will be the turnout at the Durham Miners' Gala. There may also be such chanting at those. It is unlikely, however, to be led from the stage by the headline act, Jeremy Corbyn. But you never know.

As well as being very close to Corbyn, Stormzy is Prince William's gym buddy. This is the new Court Party. Hopelessly unglamorous Home Counties accountant politicians are not the future. Just ask their chanting children from last night.
