January is only sixteen days in and it has served up quite a bit of drama on a number of fronts.

And judging by the looks of things, it’s just getting warmed up.

Let’s go with Prince Andrew first, shall we?

An American judge ruled that the Queen’s second son should stand trial for having sex with the then under aged Virginia Roberts (now Giuffre) at the late Jeffrey Epstein’s sprawling villa, twenty years ago.

With the reverberations of the conviction of Ghislane Maxwell for her role in procuring under aged girls for Epstein and his chums, still being felt, her majesty was forced to act to isolate the firm from the foolishness of her son.

This meant that Prince Andrew was stripped of his military honours and his use of the HRH (his royal highness) title.

If anyone thought that the nonagenarian Queen had completely lost her marbles with advancing years, this should serve as a timely reminder that Elizabeth II remains firmly in control of what happens in her family and she would not allow her favourite child to undermine the position of the monarchy in the world. Not now, not ever.

Worst Week Rating: 1000/10

Boris Johnson

It is a universally acknowledged fact that Britain’s prime minister has been extraordinarily poor on the job, since winning the general election in 2019. I have written umpteen articles about his performance but I must confess that nothing prepared me for the sort of revelations which emerged over the course of the last seven days.

We got to know that Britain’s serial shagger PM, held parties at number 10 downing street during the period when the public were mandated to stay in their houses. What’s worse is that, one of these parties came on the eve of the burial of the duke of Edinburgh, last year.

Needless to say that the outcry from the public and opposition politicians was so huge, that our man was forced to tender an apology to parliament for breaking the rules and another to her majesty for his blatant disregard for the rules.
