Dear @BorisJohnson The difference between you and the chap depicted below is that you're actually in a position to turn back the tide, but choose not to... Your actions are, however, about as equally science led... #Canute

Also spelled Cnut. Fitting really.

Like it - very true. Plus agree with everything you said on news last night. An excellent contribution - compelling, clear, and totally rational. Thank you. Any chance of regular appearances? quercuspublications.co.uk/na…
Poor #Canute, much misunderstood, was demonstrating to sycophantic advisers the limits of his powers IIRC cf. Historia Anglorum, ed D E Greenway. We need more like him in leadership @Department_ASNC
