The pundits were certain, the Johnson supporting press was running out of justification road, and voters were too mad to stand for it. But in terms of the big thing, the only big thing that really matters, nothing has happened. For while we wait, taking some comfort in the fact that Johnson is a dead man walking, two things are happening. The standards to which we hold our politicians begin to matter less than the standards by which politicians hold themselves. But in a matter of time – or, as Keynes had it, in the long run – we are all dead.
