They're all twats, though. It wouldn't matter anyway, they'd just do whatever Cummings tells them to.

Whilst I always try to separate the human from the job, it's very hard to be generous in Johnson's case. Like Gordon Brown he connived his way throughout his life to reach his position without knowing what to do with it, yet unlike the last Labour PM he hasn't grasped the opportunity of the pandemic in the way Brown did the financial crisis. Hindsight will be far crueler to him than it has been to his predecessor-but-two.

I secretly hope that in time Johnson will wake up every day for the rest of his life wishing he had sent that other article.

Don't forget that Gordon Brown did this to people's pension pots. And Tony Blair's attempt at reform just made it worse. Didn't affect me personally, but I remember people approaching pension at the time finding that they would end up with nothing like the amounts they should have had. I still think that it it was a criminal act and Brown should have faced charges over it.

But the precedent was there from Lawson's similar (the same, I've read, allowing for inflation) act. And the Conservatives took it a step further, by allowing companies to not pay in when times looked good, and funds looked fully funded. Turns out, if you don't pay in regularly, you're never going to get that growth opportunity back. More harmful in the long run.

To be fair to her, it talks about the last 15 years being a shitshow. Not really surprising when each Home Secretary we’ve had for a generation has been some kind of militant authoritarian. I’m not sure if it’s the office or just the sort of people who gravitate towards the job.

I'm not kindly disposed to her enough to give her a fair go

I’m torn. Her politics are awful, but WoC face a lot of abuse in politics, so I try not to attack her as a person.

She is a terrible, terrible person who has (wants to?) introduce(d) rules that would not have let her parents into the country. Which I personally think makes her a worse person than if she wasn't the daughter of immigrants. Nothing at all to do with her skin colour though,

No, but there will be some who do, so I’m always careful who I’m siding with.
