7. Well, I'm hundreds of miles from Westminster!

I wouldn't pretend to have any great insight into what's going on down there.

You're quite right to be sceptical - in the OP, I tried to skim over some of the briefing and counter-briefing from "sources" that's become too much part of our politics in recent decades.

The overall picture seems to be that some of the tame media are finally - for whatever reason - not cheerleading slavishly for Johnson any more. Quite why that is, we can only speculate.

The stories of relatively minor government scandals are mounting to the extent that there may be some hope that the more major scandals may get some decent coverage and concerted public attention. I don't think anyone's pretending that the demise of Johnson would cure all the country's ills, though.
