“The standard of leader in this country has been awful these last two years, but that man (Southgate) is respectful, humble, tells the truth – everything a leader should be.”
Gary Neville’s words at the end of the England v Denmark match should ring in the ears of all those who continue to support our disrespectful, boastful and dishonest prime minister. Johnson’s ears should be positively aflame.
Could Gary Neville have said this on the BBC without sanction? Will he be quoted by the mainstream media? Probably not. His words were, however, pure music for a vast swathe of people who value truth, integrity and honour.
“If England triumph against Italy on Sunday, it will not be because of Brexit or you, Mr Johnson. It will, in part, be because of the beautiful legacy of immigration, and the diversity and inclusiveness you seem to hate so much, Ms Patel.” Well said. Gareth Southgate is the antithesis of Boris Johnson. He has integrity, courage, honesty and determination. All the leadership qualities that Johnson so singularly lacks.
