And remember, Johnson isn't even deep down a Brexiter

Those two columns - one for Brexit, one against?

All this - all of this - can be attributed to him using Brexit to obtain the premiership

And like a classical tragedy, he is now being punished by being given what he craved
Had Johnson supported Remain, and Remain had won, he would in an alternative timeline be getting the premiership about now, succeeding Cameron with a thumping majority

All these problems are self-inflicted, because of the choice he made, because his ambitions were in a hurry
In the future there will be books - operas, musicals, cartoons, puppet shows - about this almighty exercise in hubris and nemesis

Boris and Brexit is a morality tale for our times
