No one knows what to do about Boris Johnson

London (CNN)What will it take to finish him off? That’s the question that close observers of Boris Johnson’s premiership have been asking for weeks.On Monday, a much-anticipated report by a senior civil servant into a series of lockdown-breaching gatherings held at Downing Street in 2020 and 2021, some allegedly attended by Johnson himself, delivered a verdict so damning that any other national leader might have been expected to resign. There were “failures of leadership and judgment,” Sue Gray concluded, with a “serious failure” to uphold the standards expected of members of government.The evidence gathered by Gray was sufficiently serious that London’s Metropolitan Police have launched an investigation. Johnson could even end up being questioned over the allegations that Downing Street staffers held boozy gatherings with little connection to their workplace activities while citizens dutifully followed the rules and said goodbye to terminally ill loved-ones over Zoom.
