Boris in mire
BORIS Johnson says he won’t change. In one respect we hope he means it.
Even with Omicron cases soaring, he must hold his nerve against siren voices screaming for lockdowns. Keeping society open while jabbing millions more of us is the right approach.
Our economy has suffered enough. We cannot close it down every time a new variant erupts, as they may for years.
Businesses are already being hit by nervous punters staying away, and will believe they have a strong case for help.
We do wonder, though, if the PM knows just how much trouble he is in if he doesn’t change how he governs.
He was stunned by the huge Commons rebellion on Tuesday. Today the Tories face potential by-election humiliation.
Inflation has hit 5.1 per cent, outpacing pay. We are getting poorer faster than at any time since the 2008 global crisis.
Boris may dismiss all this as mid-term woes. That would be a big mistake
He MUST rebuild trust with voters, ruptured by all the self-inflicted scandals.
He must hold his nerve on Covid and urgently tackle the cost of living.
That means tax cuts.
EVEN 25 years’ jail is scandalously inadequate for the grinning monster who murdered little Star Hobson.
We wonder, as we did over poor Arthur Labinjo-Hughes, what depth of evil now merits a whole-life term if not the systematic torture and killing of a child.
As for Star’s “mother” Frankie Smith, how can eight years be right? Her offence carries a maximum of 14. She will be up for parole in about four. Why?
Her defence tried to paint HER as a victim, dominated by bullying lover Savannah Brockhill. But she was actively complicit.
As for the social workers who left Star defenceless, when will they be fired?
ONE simple act could have kept us all a bit safer this Christmas: Jailing Katie Price.
The fact she walked free on a technicality is another outrage on an already grim day for our soft-justice system.
Katie is not a bad person — but her many troubles and utter irresponsibility make her a menace behind the wheel.
The judge said she seems to think she is above the law. We’re not surprised.
It feels like that to everyone else too.
HOW many other stars would have shown the grace of Lewis Hamilton after being robbed of his nailed-on eighth world title?
The victim of a gross injustice on Sunday, he somehow just took it on the chin.
Yesterday Sir Lewis, F1’s only black driver and arguably the sport’s all-time greatest, got his knighthood at Windsor.
A true winner, on the track and off.
