Polly Hudson says the Prime Minister has been weakened by his vote of confidence in the Commons and Johnny Depp’s squalid life.

Some of you win, some of you lose, but sometimes, even though you technically win, you still lose. Sometimes victory is not victory at all.
Take Boris Johnson, who said he was satisfied with the “convincing and decisive” result of the vote of no confidence, even though 41% of his own MPs were against him, shortly after he He was booed by royal fans – traditionally Tory supporters – at Jubilee events he attended.
All of Johnson’s regular gays were interacting with their fellow human beings as usual, and ignoring the 148 elephants in the room. Theresa May had 117 elephants in 2018, which Johnson fan Jacob Rees Mogg decided at the time was “a very bad outcome…. much worse than it looks.”
Now he is in a hurry to rewrite history, claiming that this was “a good result for the Prime Minister, he won comfortably”.
Probably going to have to redo the whole numbering system, so that from there 117 becomes more than 148.
After the votes were counted, some commentators said that if Johnson was a man of honor he would go now too. As Petronella Wyatt, with whom Johnson cheated on his ex-wife, tweeted: “Interestingly, political memoirs all say that John Major decided to resign if he received less than two-thirds of the vote. elected. Mrs May was less worried, and Boris had never heard of the word. “
Meanwhile, almost simultaneously with these developments in the showbiz world for the bad guys, a triumphant journey took place in the showbiz world for the pretty.
Johnny Depp celebrated his victory in the Amber Heard defamation lawsuit by appearing on stage with Jeff Beck, posing for a photo hugging a badger, spending what was said to be an easy “five figures” at a party at curry restaurant and joined TikTok, where he instantly gained 2.5 million followers.
Depp was indeed the victor in this most recent trial, but the televised trial revealed a lot of details surrounding their highly toxic relationship. He is revealed to have headbutted her during one of their many physical verbal fights; Text messages he fantasized about killing her were read out.
“Put her down before we burn her!!” he wrote, “I’ll burn her corpse afterwards to make sure she’s dead.”
His drug and alcohol problems have been widely publicized – Depp blames most of his terrible behavior on his inability to control himself when under the influence.
However, he tasted the verdict at The Bridge Tavern in Newcastle, where, in the words of the assistant director, he washed down his meal with a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale before downing a pint of Guinness. Almost the behavior of a repentant man taking his part in the tragic mess.
In turn, the social media sentiments against Amber Heard are staggering. “He could have killed you. He has every right” written on an image of Heard’s bruised face on a TikTok post, which has nearly 250,000 likes.
Opinions seem to have turned from all women should be heard, because – because of Heard – no women should be.
She has been shown to lie in an exaggerated or one-sided way about the attacks, depending on your perspective.
This means you can headbutt her, obviously. She deserves all she has. Closed case.
Both Johnson and Depp have enjoyed empty wins, neither of which feel like anything to celebrate. With wins like this, really everyone loses.
We still have a disaster of dishonesty in charge of our country and women’s rights have taken a huge step back. Congratulations, all.
