How It Always Ends

But either he or George Osborne will be Prime Minister in this Parliament.

Osborne would remain Chancellor under Johnson. Johnson would become (or perhaps, by then, remain) Foreign Secretary under Osborne.

Yes, you did read that second part correctly.

This is how Conservative Governments always end.

In 1945, 1964, 1974 and 1997, the public jeered out the spiteful, sneering Flashmen and the PG Wodhouse buffoons.

Even including David Cameron, there could not be a more spiteful, sneering Flashman than George Osborne.

And there could not possibly be a bigger buffoon than Boris Johnson, whom Wodhouse himself would have struggled to have invented.

Roll on 2020.
