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.
I, Julius Malema, apologise to the president of the ANC and the Republic, comrade Jacob Zuma, and to the membership of the ANC and the public in general for the statements and utterances that I made… implying that the ANC Youth League has taken a position against the president of the ANC. I accept that these statements had the effect of undermining the stature of the president of the ANC and of the Republic. It further may have had the effect of undermining the confidence of our people in the leadership of the ANC and of creating serious divisions and breakdown of unity in the organisation. – Apology by Julius Malema after disciplinary hearing.BACK TO TOP
