Hands, face, space. Curfews. Don’t drink. Bend your knees. Conform, obey, comply – surrender. British life has become infested by bossiness.
Post Lockdown, Quentin Letts storms back with a vituperative howl against the ‘bossocracy’. They tell us what to do, what to say, how to think. Letts gives them a prolonged, resonant raspberry.
He names the guilty men and women: Dominic Cummings, Prof Neil Ferguson, that strutting self-polisher Nicola Sturgeon, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Cressida Dick, Michael Gove, even the sainted Sir David Attenborough. Bang! They all take a barrel. And then there’s publicity-prone plonker Matt Hancock posing for photographs while doing his ‘Mr Fit’ press-ups.
Reasonable people have had enough of being bossed about. And when reasonable people stop respecting the law, society has a problem. ‘Brilliantly critical, but always warm-hearted and fair’ Rory Knight Bruce, The Field
