For those who are either unaware, do not know, or particularly care, Boris Johnson is, miraculously, the current British Foreign Secretary.

Let’s briefly go through the backstory leading up to this momentous calamity before explaining the point of this blog article.

Before Theresa May was Prime Minister, it was Boris Johnson.

After David Cameron stood down – to effectively cut and run before his expenses, offshore investments and private donors could be made public once he became an ordinary MP again – Johnson (Cameron’s Etonian school chum) was briefly made Prime Minister before he also cut and ran.

This left the reins to Theresa May; in what some would describe, as the poison chalice, of managing the Brexit negotiations.

To utilise another apt analogy: Johnson left May holding the baby, so-to-speak.

Typical of so many men really!

Just so you get the measure of this oafish, crass, and incompetent buffoon – yes, Johnson, like so many other men – is that oblique and cowardly.

Fast-forward to the last 24 hours, and in his usual audacious and clumsy manner, Johnson wades in feet first and is promptly handed his ass to him after being caught red-handed in an orchestrated smear campaign of the Labour Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, by posting the following on Twitter:

“I genuinely think it is important people know Corbyn claimed in recent days he never met the IRA. You cannot trust this man!”

This, do not forget, is within 24 hours of Krishnan Guru-Murthy, on Channel 4 News, spectacularly exposing a clueless effort by Sir Michael Fallon, another Tory minister, who has previously been exposed for his links with Syrian Leader, Bashir Assad, also trying to smear Jeremy Corbyn, by attributing comments that were actually made by Johnson to Corbyn.

As Guru-Murthy slapped down Fallon, Johnson did not reckon on the savviness and intelligence of the general public, and so they gave him a similar slap down.

As noted in the following screenshot of a post by @ChrisMcCusker67,¬†Johnson’s smear of Corbyn, as a traitor and enemy of the British people, was an out-and-out lie and factually wrong.

Another Twitter user, @nickh1877, was also quick to point out that Theresa May has met with the IRA.

To be clear, Corbyn only met with members of the IRA after the peace process negotiations had begun. Any and all meetings with the IRA, prior to the start of the peace process in Northern Ireland, were conducted by Tory ministers.

Some of those meetings were conducted in secrecy.

So, ask yourself, if anyone is an enemy of the people and a traitor, who is it?

It is certainly not Corbyn. In fact, Corbyn only became involved in the peace process at the request of Mo Mowlam. 

That said, if the path to peace and conflict resolution indeed must come through “jaw-jaw and not war-war”, to quote Winston, can we really blame Corbyn, or label him a traitor or an enemy, even if there were evidence that he had met with sitting members of the IRA?

The truthful answer is a resounding, NO!

It appears that the Tory campaign to win the General Election 2017 is genuinely on its last legs and that they are willing to try anything, including throwing the kitchen sink at Corbyn, a long with any decency and integrity, in order to do so at all costs.

Can Corbyn win? Yes, he can!

Will Corbyn win? Well, that is entirely up to you guys!

Remember: This election is not about the British people; it’s about keeping a Tory government in power for the next 20 years.

Just think about that for a moment: A Tory government for the next TWENTY years!!? 

Stay woke, people!
