The narcissist's prayer

The prayer Boris Johnson
that didn't happen there were no gatherings
& if it did, it wasn't that bad & if there were they were not parties
& if it was, that's not a big deal & if they were parties I did not know they were parties
& if it is, that's not my fault & if I knew they were I did not know the rules about parties
& if it was, I didn't mean it & if I knew the rules about parties then they did not apply to me
& if I did, you deserved it and if they did, that's your fault

Boris sometimes seems affronted when criticised for what amounts to a gross failure of responsibility. I think he honestly believes that it is churlish of us not to regard him as an exception, one who should be free of the network of obligation which binds everyone else.
