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.
Jeremy Cronin is fooling no-one with his intellectual gymnastics, all done in the name of trying to justify why the leadership of the national liberation movement have sold out the national democratic revolution for big salaries in government, fancy Ministerial cars, a chance to be the next wave of BEE “tenderpreneurs” and denial of the rampant corruption, greed and dishonesty that is a defining feature of this government. What we are witnessing is not liberal counter-revolution, but the demise of this pseudo-Left. If Cronin is to be believed, the forces of what he calls liberalism, are out to destroy the ANC led Alliance and the government through a combination of control of the media, confusion of the ignorant masses and an alliance with ultra-left forces to boot. – Phillip Dexter in an article on PoliticswebBACK TO TOP
