Obviously Boris is going to get binned later this year to take the fall for catastrophic covid + brexit handling, but Gove is going to be his replacement and he is on this list too.

@paul It's almost like both Johnson and Trump are/were there for as long as required and, once no longer needed, can be disposed of. I can't fully articulate my idea, or join all of the dots, but that's just what it looks like to me.

@paul A similar thing may be happening in Australia with Scott Morrison. They're all so similar, it's weird.

@adz Indeed. These 3 countries have a big Murdoch presence.

This isn't happening in New Zealand where Rupert has no foothold.

@paul Yes, that's true. But I think there's more. The ENTIRE MEDIA did a simultaneous about-face. Those that broadcast his empty podium during the primaries, failed to hold him to any kind of account during his tenure and pushed ridiculous Russiagate conspiracies are now cutting directly into his speeches and fact-checking. They're also openly calling for his blood. None of these are Fox media companies. It was creepy to watch.

@adz Good point. In the UK there is a clear crossover point where the newspapers got what they wanted (Tory government elected, then hard Brexit) and are now starting to drop (slightly) anti-Boris opinions/stories so that he can take the blame and the wider party avoids looking bad.

They are very careful to only be critical of Boris and not the Tories in general so that they can drop him and replace him with another suit.

...I'm not as immersed in US politics, but it looks to me like the big change came after Biden was safely elected, then they started dropping Trump/fact checking him etc.

Frustrating to see them finally find a spine after years of just uncritically repeating everything he said and did though.
