Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the real problem they face is that,as I mentioned a few weeks back, they've spent their whole lives being told by their sycophants that they're super bright people.

But that's just in their world of frankly ordinary, but well educated rich people of no great talent, but fantastically good connections. If you believe that wealth is a reward for hard work and talent, then talentless peolle end up being arrogant dullards.

Boris is no dullard (although Rees-Mogg is fantastically dim), but he's not the brightest guy in the room (to quote a phrase) and neither is Cummings. and they're being found out.

they really thought they could out plan and out think everybody. But as Bill Maher once said "you can't call yourself a think-tank if all your ideas are stupid"

keep to the Fen Causeway

But others can call you a stupid think tank.
