A fate he deserves. His voting record wasn't that of a morally conflicted, cerebral or compassionate Tory.He was a lightweight, who failed to grasp the realities of our legal system. BoJo does not make the decisions on who to prosecute, rather the CPS. If people have acted ultra vires (and I mean by a long way) in the Province then they should be held to account. I don't think many of us have an issue with this, we all signed up post Nurnberg!
As for it being a grenade, it's more a small pebble in a very large sea. Will be chip wrapper fodder tomorrow, and next month people will be asking who was he.
He went to Sandhurst where one of the many mantras is 'the standard you walk past is the standard you accept'.
Mercer walked past a lot of shit looking the other way.
I can't get all that excited about his red line either; if you did silly shit in NI then the rule of law requires that you answer for it.
