My Election Notes 2019; E-Day – 19

by Pseud O'Nym

This post was meant to be about something else, but that something else will have to wait until tomorrow because I’ve spent too long converting a pdf. into a Word file. Whilst I imagine these things are simple if you know what you’re doing, I don’t and therefore it isn’t.

Anyway is it just me or has anyone else noticed the Nigel’s Farrago has somehow managed to pull off the same trick as Boris’s Johnson. And no, that isn’t a euphemism; much as I’m sure Boris’s Johnson is no stranger to being pulled off. And Donald Fart. Both being pulled off and pulling off the same trick.

How have they done this I mean it’s a clever thing to do and everything, but still, how?

In what possible universe are they outsiders, removed from the political class, that has consistently – as they would have the disenfranchised believe – ignored their political wants as somehow being not as deserving as others.

Possibly some of the blame lies with the mainstream media, which treated Donald Fart’s election campaign as a bit of a joke and therefore failed to subject him to anywhere near the same level of scrutiny as other candidates until it was too late. What do we know about Boris’s Johnson? I mean, really know. Granted, now he’s PM and fighting an election campaign, he’s being subjected to a level of scrutiny about his conduct that he has managed to keep hidden from the public and with good reason, as the public are not liking what they see. Did anyone else hear the boo’s that heralded his entrance onto the stage for BBC1’s ‘Question Time – Leaders Special’

But Nigel’s Farrago seems to have gotten a free pass. He appeared, fully formed and somehow able to channel people’s frustration into serving his own political ends. In fact, rather like Harold Saxon. For those of you unfamiliar with ‘Doctor Who’ Harold Saxon is an invention of the Doctors nemesis, ‘The Master’. Bear with me. Finding himself trapped on earth, he manufactures an identity, an entire history so as to launch a political career. Using mind control, he convinces people to think him good, without knowing why

Only he isn’t. And it’s only when it’s too late and becomes Prime Minister that people realise that.

But hey, ‘Doctor Who’ is only voguish science fiction, and besides, after announcing The Brexit party will not field candidates in over 300 seats, the best he can hope is to do is influence Boris’s Johnson, if he becomes Prime Minister. After all, we know “The Master’ can change gender, but can he?
