    My pinned Tweet sums this up. (I've posted its contents here before, so I wouldn't bother clicking the link if you assiduously follow my pearls of wisdom on TDF. And if you don't, shame on you!)

    Two quotes from a sky news link online:-

    "Boris is preparing to lay down the lives of his staff to save his own. It will be the Night of the Long Scapegoats."

    One minister said: "He is in total survival mode. He is so worried that he has started to read his Government papers."

    I wonder how many people the second one flys over their heads.

    Some people can see no wrong in him. I think some also want him gone, but can't face the choice of 'who next'.
