One has to hand it to Boris Johnson, at the time of writing still the UK’s Prime Minister and if current form continues, also for years to come. Over the years, and this probably goes way back, he must have shrewdly built up a reserve of scandals and affairs that when needed can be called upon to divert attentions from more serious shortcomings in his management of the country. How else to explain the convenient and ongoing gifts of partygate and now poochgate just as his Brexit-provided political armour is starting to show chinks, the latest of which are the new queues of lorries for Dover.
