d Rees Mogg laying like a Roman aristocrat on a couch shows what he thinks of us all. Johnson was quoting Octavian last night. Octavian said that after much bloodshed there was sixty years of peace. However Johnson misses the point . Octavian marks the end of the Republic, the beginning of despotism and the maximum bending of the rules. Johnson is a lousy historian. He is superficial, vain and narcissistic all the qualities of Caligula. The superficiality of his intellect oozes out of Johnson and he is rattled and ratty.
