In waging culture wars, Boris Johnson can count on a cabinet of mercenaries

When Napoleon marched on Moscow in 1812, the Russian general Mikhail Kutuzov ordered his forces to sit back.

Judging by testimony from Dominic Cummings last week, Boris Johnson, the UK Prime Minister, can in no way be described as a good general; the picture Cummings painted was one of blundering complacency and chaotic incompetence at the heart of Government as the pandemic took hold, and then of a refusal to learn lessons and act in a timely fashion when the second wave hit.

THROUGH THE ARCHIVES: From the News Letter of May 1891
