This week, The Maple's managing editor Alex Cosh spoke to Passage staff writer V.S. Wells about the "partygate" scandal currently unfolding inside the U.K.'s Conservative government, whether this might be the end of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's career, and what the debacle tells us about so-called "populist" right-wing politics.
V. S. Wells is a writer and journalist originally from the U.K. They currently live on unceded Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh territory in Vancouver, B.C. Find them on Twitter at @vsmwells.
