    A society becomes totalitarian when its structure becomes flagrantly artificial: that is, when its ruling class has lost its function but succeeds in clinging to power by force or fraud.

    And so to his radically dwindling opportunities. This week, following the announcement that he has a baby due in June, Johnson let it be known he’d be taking paternity leave. He knows that doesn’t mean leaving after the paternity test, right?

    Consider the facts that inform this story. A self-confessed yet inefficient cocaine user, who lost three jobs due to lying to his bosses, who has fathered an unverifiable amount of children by a variety of since abandoned women (many of whom he was seeing simultaneously), who is currently under investigation by the police due to questions arising from his alleged financial impropriety with a pole-dancer, who was a high-profile member of an organised hooligan gang of teenage vandals familiar to local law enforcement agencies, who assisted a known criminal in plotting a violent assault, who rarely turns up to work (and when he does is woefully underprepared with usually disastrous consequences), and who is supported almost entirely by the public purse, is fathering yet another child. Where is the Daily Mail exposé condemning this disgraceful burden on society?

    It is nowhere to be seen. Because this man isn’t your “drunk, criminal and feckless working-class” cousin, who dropped out of school at 14 and fell in with a bad crowd, or a young immigrant who must now be deported for dealing the kind of drugs Michael Gove used to neck in the Notting Hill 90s. No. This feckless criminal is our prime minister...

    Usage sets my teeth on edge. He's fathered 12⅔ kids? Or 23.39487 kids? What's the SI unit for a part of a child?

    Will it be a gift from heaven if a different drug works? Not one that DJT had recommended? Or will somebody get fired?

    Why aren't they sick already? We've seen how casual and lax they are on national TV while telling people what not to do. How do they behave off-camera? Do they suddenly slip on the masks and gloves when nobody's looking? Do they spread out when not having to fit in a camera frame? Do they stop handling things and shaking hands? Somehow I doubt it.

    Sure, none of them do their own grocery shopping, none of them ride a bus, but surely their kitchen help and gardeners must do.

    So what is keeping them from getting infected like everybody else?

    He's got his press corps really well-trained. No really embarrassing questions. It was spooky at the start of the session--he was repeating verbatim what he'd said about governors a few days before.
