Today’s Level 4 Extension Will Cause Another Showdown Between Boris Johnson And His Deputies | Boris johnson

OROne of the worst things about the perpetual winter that has passed over Narnia is that "it is always winter and never Christmas." The most faithful character of CS Lewis, Lucy pevensie, describes this as "horrible" when it was first told to him - a reaction Conservative MPs can probably empathize with quite well today.
