Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
tbh Boris is being tested and found desperately short of what is needed. His petulance is doing him no favours and, at last, he is being faced with responsibilities he cannot run from. And he doesn't like the burden at all.

Also, his well known lying, cheating and slipperiness means that he isn't trusted by anybody in Westminster or Brussels. Nobody believes a word he says, which means that he faces a daunting task because he can make no promise to anybody that can possibly be recieved in good faith. It makes his job impossible.

Dominic Cummings is also learning the limits of bullying and bullshit. He is apprently not taking these lessons well.

All in all, the whole populist nationalism on which Boris rode to power is deflating under pressure. Boris awakes to new humiliation every day, I actually wonder how long he's going to put up with it cos he's obviously responding to it very badly.
