Always the Wrong Time

Now that Mr Johnson and Mr Sunak, among others, have been fined for breaking their own lockdown rules, I think they should resign immediately. Is it the right time, with the war in Ukraine? No, but it will never be the right time. There’s always a crisis.

Or perhaps there was a right time. Shortly after the parties would have been a good time to own up, pay up and possibly even keep their jobs. When the matter first came to public light – and before the Met stepped in forestalling the full release of the civil service report – would have been a good time to step down. Right now? I still think we’d be better with someone with demonstrable integrity and good judgement at the helm; who knows what crisis looms next?
