Although Boris JohnsonThe resignation’s honor roll has yet to be released, rumor has it it’s a hundred names long and includes a leg up to the House of Lords Shaun Baileyat whose office a lockdown party was being held, former Daily Mail editor Paul DacreAnd Nadine Dorries.
It’s just amazing that we live in a country where Nadine Dorries has career opportunities as a royalty, cabinet minister or author instead of standing on the street with a sign saying ‘Will fight the devil to make money’.

In terms of abuse of privilege, all of that pales in comparison to the possibility that the helpless MP for Uxbridge and Ruislip could ennoble his own father.
From the man who…
Tried to get his wife a government job
Got his brother a peerage
…he knights his father. pic.twitter.com/B2J3wzkEDs

Of course, the idea received an absolute backlash from Twitter.
Wonder who else will make up the Knights of the Clown’s Table?

Johnson is trying to get his father into the House of Lords for putting his brother in there, but this guy keeps voting against all the cool new fascist policies this government is banking on winning in the next election.

Absurd. Sunak can’t possibly sign that.

Ah that’s cute now🥰
A great father & son act just like:
Kirk Douglas and Michael Douglas
Prince Charles & Prince William
Sir Tim Rice & Declan Rice
So rise, Sir Stanley Johnson!
It just goes to show how much Boris Johnson loves his father and believes in FAMILY VALUES!

Boris Johnson, who has given his brother a peerage, his donors honours, his pals billion-dollar PSA contracts and his friends the best jobs, now wants his father knighted
In another country, what’s the word for something like that? pic.twitter.com/DxO56NriKP

The difference between Johnson knighting his father and Caligula making his horse consul is that some people like horses.

I mean, he knighted Gavin Williamson – Gavin Fucking Williamson. *Of course* he wants to give one to his father. He’s probably just scrolled through his contacts and clicked “Select All.”

“If you’ve been in my shoes for the past six years, nothing surprises you, nothing anymore.”
Watching puddle-deep Rachel Johnson chatter for her father’s knighthood, bestowed on him by her brother, is a hallucinogenic and mind-expanding experience.
