There is a Tory M.P. called Michael Fabricant, and I find it hard to believe that he is real.
I remember the first time I saw a picture of him, and I thought it was someone imitating Boris Johnson – and he was called Fabricant – definitely must be a spoof. The kind of name that Charles Dickens would give a character like that – ‘Mr. Mendacious Fabricant’.
But no, he was real enough – hard though it was to believe.
He popped up again recently, doing an impression of Boris – saying Boris things – having Boris attitudes. And again, I find it hard to believe that he is real – but he is – as real, or unreal, as the Government he belongs to – and as real, or unreal as the fabricator that he appears to be impersonating.
You never know – it could all be a huge hoax on the part of the alien race who are pulling our strings – that the Tories are still in power, that Boris is still in Number 10.
Or, I’ll wake up, and it will all have been a dream – a fabrication.
Makes as much sense as anything else that is happening at the moment.
See what I mean? To be Boris – or not to be Boris? That is the question
