Man for himself

The manner of his departure speaks volumes about the man. He has always acted, like Mr.Trump, as if the rules didn’t apply to him. Facts are ignored if they’re inconvenient, or dismissed altogether. Nothing matters more to him than himself. Anything or anyone can be sacrificed in that cause – friends, family, colleagues, party, government. No other prime minister in the long history of Britain’s parliamentary democracy has been so prepared to sacrifice the governance of the nation to save his own skin. That is Mr.Johnson’s special achievement.

The above opinion of Andrew Neil, a former editor of The Sunday Times, carried by NYT, is a scathing critique of Boris Johnson and a lesson for the self-centred Pakistani leaders.
