Boris Johnson was not alone in the trial today.
British democracy was, too – and, sad to say, undermined in the most humiliating and embarrassing way, with devastating political ramifications that will reverberate for years to come.
I have been invoking a deranged witch-hunt against the last Prime Minister elected by the British people for a number of months.
But the judge, jury and executioners of the Privileges Committee at Westminster’s Grimond Room—led by Labor chairman Boris hated Harriet Harman, who had handed down a guilty verdict months earlier before even seeing a scrap of evidence—proved to be more of a kangaroo court than I had feared possible.
Without any legal rules or protections, Boris was subjected to more than three hours of state-sanctioned harassment at the most tedious technicality of so-called Downing Street ‘assemblies’ over the course of the pandemic, most of which he did not and did not attend. for a few minutes to give a thank you speech to a departing employee.
Boris has been subjected to more than three hours of state-sanctioned harassment over the most tedious technical procedures of his so-called ‘gatherings’ in Downing Street.
Boris – a hugely popular Brexit champion and a major threat to a future Labor government – has found himself in the dock, facing the end of his political career
As Burris emphasized in his powerful and well-crafted opening statement: “I am here to tell you from the bottom of my heart that I have not lied to the House. These statements were made in good faith and on the basis of what I believed at the time.
Even two decades later, despite not being told the truth about the motive for a war that saw 179 brave Britons killed in action, Tony Blair never found himself facing this kind of parliamentary scrutiny.
Nor has Matt Hancock, the true villain of the Covid-19 era, whose arrogant decision about testing led to positive patients being admitted into care homes and led directly to thousands of deaths.
Instead, it’s Boris – the hugely popular Brexiteer hero and great threat to a future Labor government – who finds himself in the dock, facing the end of his political career, over ludicrous two-metre social distancing rules, inconsequential guidelines and a wine and cheese night. Downing Street Park.
Now let me be clear, these rules should never have been imposed on the British public.
I’ve spent nearly all of my lockdown attacking the government and Boris himself for subjecting us to such antisocial atrocities.
It was always inexcusable and inexcusable to prevent family members from being at the side of their loved ones as they took their last breath on the ground, to limit the attendance of close friends to funerals, and to forcibly prevent concerned relatives from helping youngsters being abused by their parents.
But to confuse the insane insult of Britain’s lockdown laws, many of which Boris fought privately, with this ludicrous show trial is both intellectually dishonest and morally wrong.

The judge, jury and executioners of the Privileges Committee, led by Harriet Harman, the head of the Hateful Labor Party, Boris, proved to be more of a kangaroo court than I had ever feared possible.
Predictably, the political establishment, Boris hating mainstream broadcast media, Tories who love Sunak and Hunt’s new anti-democratic regime, and Sue Gray’s bent bloc bounce back into the circus of the day.
As ring-slingers, Sly News’ Covid party girls Kay Burley and Pete Rigby seemed to abandon any pretense of impartiality as they delighted in witnessing the potential carnage of their political enemy.
“I’m so looking forward to this,” Burley exclaimed as she ushered in her coverage this morning, licking her lips gleefully.
“This is today’s box office we’re building,” fellow presenter Sarah Jane Mei gushed to Rigby, as she turned to the studio.
There was no hint of irony, though, as both Burley and Rigby were suspended during the pandemic for breaching Covid rules which they constantly demanded Boris uphold.
They were part of a long list of sworn enemies of Boris who got a platform to attack the former prime minister, including conspiracy theorist Alistair Campbell, who now publicly questions whether the former prime minister died of Covid himself in March 2020.
The deep state of circumcision against Boris is more sinister than that.
Sue Gray, the so-called impartial civil servant chosen to conduct an investigation into the Downing Street parties, is about to become chief of staff to the Labor leader – and Slippery Starmer won’t say when they start their negotiations.

As former Home Secretary Priti Patel, a staunch ally of Boris, told me last week this indicated “collusion” at the highest possible level.
That’s before you land the role of Boris’ archenemy Dominic Cummings, a discredited foe who has made it his mission on Earth to destroy his former boss.
But in this committee’s attempt to write the political shrine to Boris Johnson, what they don’t realize is that they also likely threaten the ability of future prime ministers to speak freely in the House of Commons on matters of national importance.
By attempting to prove that Boris “recklessly” misled the house, even though he thought the advice he had been given was correct, there is a dangerous move in the goalposts as to what our leaders would be willing to say in Parliament.
It can have a chilling effect.
Why in the future would Rishi Sunak agree to rely on officials to answer urgent questions on matters of national importance, while the Privileges Commission might use any unintentional missteps to end his political career? Instead, we will see our leaders avoid addressing the issues of the day directly and spend weeks or months hiding behind formal inquiries.
Yesterday, I spent hours going through 52 pages of evidence that Boris presented to the committee.
It was clear to me that he did not knowingly or recklessly mislead Parliament nor correct the record when what he said in the House proved wrong.
In an attempt to prove that Boris “recklessly” misled the house, even though he believed the advice he was given was correct, there is a dangerous move in the goalposts.
But sitting through three hours and 15 minutes of agonizing evidence before the committee today made clear that MPs were looking for a different outcome.
There was no smoking gun, just a lot of hype about hated lockdown measures designed to capitalize on public anger at what we’ve all been needlessly exposed to.
There is certainly no evidence that Boris went to parliament to knowingly or recklessly mislead the public.
So if the committee issues a guilty verdict, it will be necessary for Conservative MPs, even those who support Sunak over Boris, to put aside intra-party rivalry to vote on the outcome.
If Boris is forced out of office via an election of no confidence, I fear the US-style hounding of politicians by the Westminster Institution will become commonplace.
In the interests of British democracy, this must not be allowed to happen.
