To me the acts of Johnson and his people are contrary to both decency and common sense - so there must be some very deep corruption involved.
I think there is consolation, though. I have known a couple of people like Boris Johnson. I've even had some bosses like him. Common to them is that they are full of shouting and boasting - in stark contrast to the poor results they come up with in the end. They are all going for the quick fixes - and when they fall, they fall almost immediately into oblivion (except to the historians).
But democracy is about division of labour. I think there are sufficient numbers of qualified and powerful and right-thinking people, even politicians, who will save UK in the end. I don't think you or I need to do anything actively. But we must take care not to support the reactionaries anywhere - whether economic, technological or environmental. If there is a room anywhere for intolerance, it must be towards those.
