Righteous Justice for the Cranks Who Celebrated Boris’ Worsening Condition

In further evidence that the real world does not behave like Twitter, some of those who yesterday celebrated the worsening of the Prime Minister’s condition, have today received some cosmic justice. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction…
