The Guardian Free his readers, which is arguably the most comical and hyperrealistic line of the week when he reported that Boris Johnson accused the EU of preparing to go to extreme and unreasonable lengths in the Brexit negotiations while ‘he was defending the violation of international law amid a growing rebellion from conservative backbenchers.
Here is today’s 3D definition:
Go to extreme and unreasonable lengths:
A phrase that those who usually go to extreme and unreasonable efforts in whatever they like to apply to those who oppose any of their extremely unreasonable acts
We live in a time when extreme and unreasonable speech and action has become the most reliable tool for those seeking political, economic or social success. He explains how the purveyors of extreme and unreasonable speeches won recent elections in countries as diverse as the United States, the United Kingdom, India, the Philippines and Brazil, to name but a few.
Washington’s tug of war around the war in Afghanistan
Whether their names are Johnson, Donald Trump, Jair Bolsonaro, Silvio Berlusconi, Rodrigo Duterte, Elon Musk or Kanye West, each in their own patented way has perfected the art of outrageous hyperreality that thrives on projecting extreme and unreasonable personality. The phenomenon goes beyond politics. In fact, it has its origin in the world of entertainment. West, an American rapper, inspired President Trump’s political approach as much as Trump did to convince West that he could have a future in politics.
Guardians readers may be wondering what kind of exceptionally outrageous behavior Johnson, the British Prime Minister, could deserve, calling the behavior of European negotiators extreme and unreasonable. Even during his career as a journalist before entering politics, Johnson specialized in extreme and unreasonable exaggeration in his news reporting.
In 2016, Johnson also went from extremes to preparing an article for publication in The Telegraph in which he argued in favor of keeping Britain in Europe and warned that leaving the EU would cause an economic shock, leading the Conservative Party wing in the Brexit leave campaign. This allowed him to identify with the Brexit cause and to assume the leadership of this faction of a party officially committed to remaining a member of the European Union. He felt it would be the shortest route to Downing Street as he witnessed the faltering fortunes of David Cameron, the then Prime Minister.
So what terribly extreme and unreasonable actions are Europeans guilty of in Johnson’s eyes? Very simply, they disapprove of his offers Home Market Bill, which calls for a unilateral cancellation of the withdrawal agreement signed by Johnson last year to presumably settle the initial political conditions for the UK’s exit from the European Union. On its own initiative, this agreement drew a border between Northern Ireland and Great Britain, which together form the United Kingdom.
The law he is currently proposing would allow him to effectively erase that border, which would entail the need to create a hard border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Keeping this border open as provided for by the Good Friday Agreement of 1998, an agreement ending violence between Catholics and Protestants, was a prerequisite for reaching any sort of permanent solution to the UK’s withdrawal from the Union. European.
Now key members of Johnson’s cabinet have started to revolt because this is a blatant violation of the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement that took so long to be concluded. Former British Ambassador to the United States, Kim Darroch, now points that the bill will seriously damage our international reputation. He warned that this could deter other countries from making deals with the UK in the future. He was not alone. Five former British prime ministers have also expressed concern over the move. Darroch speculated what might happen if people think the Brits are just going to say, we didn’t like this on second thought, and we’d like to rewrite this part unilaterally.
Over the centuries that the British have ruled the world and owned an empire that the sun never sets, as a people they have earned a reputation for being engaged in fair play. The French, who have never had an understanding with the British deeper than simply cordial, to this day identify the British as a people who want to be respected in order to maintain the cultural value of fair play, at least as regards the sport.
The French have never been naive. They have always recognized that their British neighbors were perfectly capable of perfidy. To this day, the French will ironically trot Albion’s treacherous phrase to explain the British positions on other nations. But Albions’ traditional perfidy was always subtle, carried an air of reasonableness, and delivered with what appeared to be a knowing smile. Boris Johnsons is both extreme and unreasonable.
Empires will always be suspected of perfidy, if only because everyone understands that they can, on a whim, betray treaties and agreements and even their own declared principles and values, because they rely on their prowess. military personnel and their financial weight to carry them out. To some extent, it becomes the law of empires, their way of indicating that the countries they deal with have more interest in being kind to them than to being kind to others.
The irony this time and some see it as a tragedy is that Britain hasn’t been an empire for at least 70 years. Johnson has become little more than the poor Shakespeare player who struts around and worries about his time on a stage and one day soon won’t be heard. The burning question, when it comes to Johnson, Rodrigo Duterte and Donald Trump whose release could be announced in November, is: What will the damaged landscape look like when these leaders who specialize in reversing their own cultures are gone?
As the world breathlessly awaits the major events affecting every nation in the world beginning with the US presidential election in November and including the relentless drama of the rise and fall of hopes that the pandemic will end COVID-19, the British have added angst to speculate on the irreparable damage to what appears to be an inevitable hard Brexit on January 1, 2021. One thing seems certain: It will be both extreme and unreasonable.
