Quote of the week

Johnson used to at least be able to give a passable imitation of being Boris Johnson. Now he can’t even manage that. The gags and the mannerisms that used to be his calling card, now just fall flat. A one-trick pony whose one trick everyone knows. The surface has been stripped bare to reveal a core of molten need. Someone who craves attention and fears he wouldn’t exist without it. Someone whose narcissism leaves him devoid of empathy. Incapable of either giving or receiving love.

Granting them [Schabir Shaik and Eugene de Kock] presidential pardons will create a perception that the politically connected can get away with everything. This is more like condoning serious crimes and it is going to make a fight against crime a lot harder. – Stephen Friedman in The Citizen
