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.
[Julius] Malema’s story is powerful because it is deep and it is true. There is a resounding dissonance in this country. Politically, we are equal, and that comes from the present. Socially, we are anything but equal, and that comes from the past. Malema says it better than anyone, and that is why he is in our thoughts.- Jonny Steinberg in Business DayBACK TO TOP
