Bouncing Back More Strongly Together?
Not yet two months after he had used Prime Minister's Questions to illustrate that he did not know the difference between Punjab and Kashmir, Boris Johnson used yesterday's to illustrate that he did not know the difference between the Scottish Liberal Democrats and the SNP. Yet today he has arrived in Scotland, where he can reasonably claim to be working, since he is doing exactly as much work as he ever does, namely none whatever.
At the same time, a polling company has found out what we could all have told it for free, that the majority of Conservative supporters in England was made up of those who were indifferent towards Scottish independence and those who were positively in favour of it. If Johnson really were interested in saving the Union, then he would find other things to do than to fly into Scotland, where he has not even mentioned the biggest political scandal of modern times.
