As judgment for his many sins rains down on Boris Johnson, his future looks bleak. Irrespective of whether the British Prime Minister manages to cling to office after the scandal involving parties, lockdown rule-breaking and his innate dishonesty, he is politically emaciated.

Last week was meant to see the delivery of the bureaucratic judgment by civil servant Sue Gray, who has been investigating the boozy goings-on in 10 Downing Street. That verdict did not come, in part because the Metropolitan Police launched its own investigation after Gray handed it information and the force asked her to remove swathes of her report until its inquiry is complete.
