The summer holidays are nearly over, and Boris Johnson has resurrected himself. He’s no longer just the idiot who landed us in this mess; he’s now the messiah who will save us from it.

The PM’s Chequers plan has been shot down by the EU and everyone else who’s read it. This is perfect for Johnson, as it means he doesn’t need a counter-plan of his own; he can just point at May’s and come out with long-winded gibberish like:

The similarity is that both of them relied on magic, and both refused to reveal their plan upfront. Jesus fucked off after executing his plan too, which is probably what Johnson will do after he wrecks the country.

The difference, obviously, is that Jesus wasn’t a cunt.
