“at least he’s not Hitler” the bar is on the FLOOR

Not to be That Guy because British exceptionalism (especially English exceptionalism) is very real, but I do wish Americans would stop commenting on this blog’s posts about Boris Johnson, just to lament the fact that they think Trump is worse.

Trump is not the standard to which everything (or indeed anything) should be held, and we’re not in competition to determine which world leader is the worst. Saying “well at least s/he’s not Trump” normalises other world leaders being inadequate and delegitimises the genuine suffering and problems that other countries might be facing.

So no, Boris Johnson isn’t Donald Trump. I don’t want to speculate about whether he’s better or worse because that’s really not the point. He’s being judged in British terms because culture and context matter so stop using Trump as a comparison point or a parallel or an analogy because it simply doesn’t work!

I can’t stop thinking about this video of Dominic Cummings leaving 10 Downing Street like he’s making off with the silverware.

Dominic Cummings is Dominic Goings
