Distrust, disengagement and discord will be the disgraceful legacy of Boris Johnson | John Harris

The damage done by this prime minister’s misrule goes way beyond him, his inner circle and even his party
As Boris Johnson and the Conservative party anxiously tread political water while repeatedly being pulled under by strife and disgrace, two plotlines are unfolding. One is about the immediate moment, and will reach another key juncture with the imminent report by the senior civil servant Sue Gray, which may finally focus wavering Tory minds on…

The prospect of Johnson’s downfall is joyful. The threat of what may follow is not | John Harris

Walking is a glorious, primal pastime – and a lot more radical than people think | John Harris

Despite its reputation as a bourgeois hobby, walking has been a lifeline for millions past and present
If Christmas is often synonymous with hours spent indoors, the lure of the sofa and endless screentime, our second festive season spent under the shadow of Covid is presumably taking those things to their extremes.
