Like Prodicus, I find this interview slightly alarming.
That interview, from start to finish, is extremely worrying.
He seems... dazed. Is he on calming medication? Not only does he appear genuinely not to understand questions (which is different from merely refusing to answer them) but he plainly has no grasp of political reality. His party must be frantic with worry, trying to work with him in this condition.
I cannot remember ever seeing a less reflective, less self-aware and less realistic man holding such high office. The word 'delusional' has often been used as a glib jibe, not least by me, but it seems really to be objectively valid now.
Not only is this strange man inflicting a desperate scorched-earth policy on this and future generations, simply because he is at his wits' end and there is nothing else left to him, politically. He also has his finger on the nuclear button.
The Prime Mentalist is close to totally losing his marbles: any day now, he's going to go on a mad rampage through the House of Commons with a fucking AK-47...
