Boris is playing 8D Chess

Ukraine_and_Great_Britain_will_continue_to_strengthen_anti-war_coalition_-_Volodymyr_Zelenskyy_after_meeting_with_Boris_Johnson_in_Kyiv._51994994336 Like the Terminator he will be back

'It is very sad to be leaving parliament - at least for now - but above all I am bewildered and appalled that I can be forced out, anti-democratically, by a committee chaired and managed, by Harriet Harman, with such egregious bias.'

This resignation of Bojo first starting point was the kangaroo court that was image  of the modern political motivations engineered by the Left . In many instances, The committee hearing was  influenced by partisan interests, resulting in a predetermined narrative against Johnson. The targeting of Boris Johnson was driven by no pursuit of truth and accountability rather  it was orchestrated to undermine his reputation and political standing. Thus accusation that the committee hearing against Boris Johnson resembled a kangaroo court raises valid concerns regarding fairness and impartiality. 

This has created a dangerous precedent for British Politics. This has damaged democracy to it's court by allowing a stitch up to run the nation with the media such as the BBC being the mouth piece of running opinions impartially. This now a battle of truth with the agenda ever becoming more open...An Anti-Brexit, Anti-Conservative and Anti-British Agenda.

This in mind however, no matter how much of a sham the Committee was with backstabbing's from Sue Gray and the inherent woke civil service, we need to recognise that this is only the beginning for Johnson. He is not bowing down rather Boris Johnson, renowned for his political acumen and ability to withstand crises, has proven himself to be a master player of this game that we call Politics. We saw this when he was MP of Henley, no matter what was thrown onto him he managed to manoeuvre everything

While the resignation might seem abrupt, Johnson is playing the long game. He understands that political fortunes can change rapidly, and by maintaining an absence from the political stage, he positions himself to re-enter the scene at an opportune moment. As events unfold and political tides shift, Johnson will have the flexibility to strategically plan his return, capturing the public's attention and reinvigorating his political career. Mind you in previous articles, I have always attested to the soft power of organisations of the CDO, where their outside influence from Parliament allows his influence to remain strong

Importantly however Resigning as an MP provides Johnson with the opportunity to reconnect  on a different level. By stepping out of the limelight, he can embark on a strategic public relations campaign, engaging with constituents, attending local events, and listening to the concerns of ordinary citizens. This grassroots approach allows him to rebuild public support from the ground up, reassuring himself as a more approachable and relatable figure.

Boris Johnson's influence on the Conservative Party leadership has been substantial, reshaping the party's identity and policies during his tenure as Prime Minister and MP. However, his resignation can allow for  external Brexit  influences that may shape the party's direction in his absence. Johnson's resignation as an MP might initially be perceived as an act of retreat, but it is crucial to view it through the lens of 8D chess. Johnson's decision is a calculated move designed to reposition himself strategically and rebuild public support. By stepping away from the political fray, he aims to distance himself from the Liberal Liberal made  controversies, engage with Voters on a grassroots level, and ultimately make a grand return when the political landscape is most favourable to his goals, such as he did during the Brexit referendum. Johnson is playing the longer game of 8D chess, constantly thinking several moves ahead to secure his political future. For now it is goodbye but hello to the future
