"Under a Johnson parliamentary dictatorship, years of volatility, conflict
and crisis lie ahead, erupting in an explosion of protest which could well
bring it crashing to its downfall. In countries around the world, from
Europe to Africa, the Middle East to Latin America, tens of thousands are
marching on the streets, braving police bullets and in many cases
overthrowing their oppressors. Britain is plunging into the turmoil that is
already gripping at least thirty countries throughout the rest of the
world. Let Boris Johnson chortle in his moment of glory while he can. He
least of all will be equipped to withstand the era of revolution and
resistance that is sweeping the world."

Sounds more like a victory than a defeat then.

Cheers,
John
