'What I can tell you is that all guidance was followed completely in No 10'. Familiar statement? Well, if you watch the news every so often, you'd recognise the lies as quickly as the BBC's opening. Or, let's face it, you don't even have to indulge yourself in the depressing 18:00 hour to know our prime minister is a total fucking liar. It's been three months since the debacle surfaced - leaving the public completely unsurprised (yet, still reeling) at the idiocy on display - and the Metropolitan Police have only just announced they've recently started handing out fines. Yes, we are still talking about those nearly one and a half-year-old Christmas parties that happened during a strict lockdown, imposed by the very same buffoons who broke the law.
Choosing to channel her anger at our government's failures in a, for want of a better word, more positive light (rather than spewing hatred over social media), Betsy Johnson took part in a Miu Miu special photo story for 10 Magazine, actively indulging her creative juices by poking light at the prime minister's incompetency.
Directed, edited and shot all by Johnson herself, the photo story is as witty as it is poignant, masterfully ripping into the people we are repeatedly told we should look up to. Although the images themselves are doused in absolute chaos - there are papers everywhere, dishevelled clothes and a prevalently conveyed party atmosphere - one can't help but think Betsy Johnson is somewhat on the ball when it comes to re-enacting what actually went down all those nights ago, when the rest of us were at home, most likely asleep.
Not a first for the creative, Johnson's previous photo stories such as The Candidate have always successfully made a mockery of parliament by uncovering the increasingly intertwined relationship between fashion and politics. Whether it be through intelligently and broadly widening the spectrum of what sort of figures we consider as part of our political conversations to poking fun at the very figures already chosen, when it comes to fashion and politics, Betsy Johnson plays no game.
