Andrew Scheer has finally succumbed to the inevitable, resigning his leadership in the Conservative Party, and Boris Johnson has won his victory as Prime Minister of England. There is some level of tragedy to both: After a disastrous election, wherein he came across as milquetoast, vacillating and afraid of voicing his own beliefs, Scheer left under some cloud of suspicion, using Party funds to fund his five children’s private education. Of course, politicians would never taint their own children with broken, publicly funded education, staffed by socialist teachers putting in time – that is foisted on the rest of the hoi polloi, the great mass of the unwashed and undereducated.
No, it’s all private – and expensive – education for the elite. But Mr. Scheer could not even dig into his six-figure-and-then-some income to pay for the elite education himself, as the rest of us must – those few who could afford it, after being forced to pay state schools (there is no opting out, dear reader).
Whatever happens to Scheer, he has more or less won the lottery, for even should he now lose his seat, his pension will keep him going with income, benefits, retirement, perks few of us could ever dream of.
