But how can the working classes be so f*c*i*g dumb? Ungrateful self-interested M.A.G.A. lemmings. Fat, opiate-addled herd.And then there are the pointless libtards arguing about pronouns. The bovine majority! Blue collar, working class, proletariat suckers. White collar, craven enablers. Worst instincts sabotaging best interests. Time and time again. When does it end?

Boris Johnson and his government have failed to tackle coronavirus but, despite public criticism, the agenda of the Boris cabal is nothing to do with public service. Their objectives are deregulation, authoritarian power consolidation and the unparalleled profit from a coordinated program of public-private partnership grift. Why should it matter if half the country wastes time arguing the toss about what Boris should do, how the PM should care for the people? Naive fools.

Public-private partnerships share traits with military-industrial wealth appropriation. Both invert the wealth redistribution ideal to send money up the ladder, from poor to rich, rather than trickling down rich to poor. This piece recasts British government failure on coronavirus as the latest success for Boris Johnson and his cabal. Their agenda isn’t public service. They prosecute their aims with great skill: deregulation, authoritarian power consolidation and an unparalleled program of public-private partnership grift.

Friend versus enemy, faithful versus corrupted, good versus evil: choose your favorite dichotomy, it doesn’t matter. Tribalism is compelling. It’s melodrama designed to misdirect public discourse away from scrutinizing the real business of exploitation. Governments, corporations, institutions, vested interests, city halls, these power dynamics use the same method. Democracy itself subordinates to this corrupt pantomime.
