“Boris Johnson COULD still return to Downing Street
if Rishi fails to turn the polls around, allies warn the new PM”
I have cut short my holiday
to heal the wounds that part us,
knowing that I was born to play
the role of Cincinnatus.
I’m charged with straying from the truth—
my critics make up stories.
How sharper than a serpent’s tooth
to have such thankless Tories!
