When Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently announced an end to some medical mandates and virus-related restrictions in the United Kingdom, I thought: “This is a victory for nation-states over unitary global government.” The reason the prime minister turned a 180 on his country’s COVID-1984 tyranny seems to be intricately linked to his own personal scandals involving the breaking of various lockdown, masking, and social gathering rules that form the crux of the U.K.’s totalitarian health regime. If Klaus Schwab, George Soros, Bill Gates, or Anthony Fauci had complete control over the queen’s realm, you can bet that the mandates would never go away. However, Boris is facing a vote of no confidence in Parliament and seeks to rally support from an increasingly fatigued and unhappy public by putting an end to what should never have been put in place. Once again, localized politics has cut the legs out from underneath the monster of international hegemony. This is a good thing.
