Abstract

No prizes for guessing that the title of this blog is the first line of ‘My Way’, the 1969 single by Frank Sinatra. ‘My Way’, though vaguely elegiac in reflecting on life, is ultimately anthemic in its defiance that whatever the mistakes, the singer did it their way without concern or regard for the consequences. Should Prime Minister Boris Johnson reflect on his career so far, he’d certainly be able to state that he’s done things his way and, has been strenuously argued by his many critics, with little or no regard to the impact on others. It’s impossible to say what Johnson’s ‘way’ is. Johnson is someone whose stance alters depending on whoever is influencing him and, more particularly, what he thinks is to his personal advantage.
