Yeah I can't fathom it either. You'd think after this pandemic has exposed their incompetence and mendacity so completely, people would say enough is enough. Sadly I'm not holding out much hope for that. I reckon despite the there's still a lot of 'oh they're trying their best/Labour are scary Marxists/take back control' type thinking out there. A family member of mine even recently said that despite utter shambles and uselessness of the government over Covid, he still thinks Johnson has been a good PM and likes the guy. As much as I love and care for said family member, how do you even reason with this level of stupid!? I expect the Murdoch papers will swiftly go back to their usual sycophantic cheerleading once this is is over - they still have their own selfish interests to look out for after all.
At least for now I can now look forward to PMQs with a sense of schadenfreude.
