This week in #ukpolitics Suella #Braverman has got into a pickle. Did she ask for special treatment after breaking the speeding laws? Is that okay? Should she resign? does a five minute #tarot reading asking just that!

Past - 16 Of Trumps, Tower

16 - Trump - Tower

The tower is usually a tower collapsing! There has been a downfall, there is turmoil and a dictator overthrown.

Is that Bojo or the Trusterfuck? Could be either, could be both, or the one before.

The point is that we have a history of crisis, of disastrous institutional collapse.

External Influence - 9 Of Wands, Manifest

9 - Wands - Manifest

So what do you need at a moment like that? The external influences all want heroism and courage and trust, someone who is brave and strong, with compassion and valour.

Someone who is selfless and gentle.

Is that what we got?

Did external influences win out?

Hidden Influence - 4 Of Swords, Truce

4 - Swords - Truce

But what’s going on behind the scenes? A truce.

An agreement to end hostilities. A mediation, a moratorium, an armistice.

Suella is in her position to placate wing of the conservative party. She is there not by merit, not by manifest suitability, but as an agreement to placate a part of the party. A treaty with a faction in conflict.

Present - 15 Of Trumps, Devil

15 - Trump - Devil

So right now, in the home office, there is a perversion set upon violent subjugation of people, leaving them dispossessed and oppressed, a brutal gangster who’s desire and kink is to see people in shackles being immobilized and violently deported to Africa.

That is who we have in charge there, in charge of justice!

Not just someone who tries to half-ass a speeding penalty.

Outcome - 5 Of Trumps, Hierophant

5 - Trump - Hierophant

What will happen? Heirophant suggests the institutions may step in, a pastoral expert will make suggestions and recommendations, some legal guru, a judge or academic may be called upon.

It sounds like in the end, the whips and the party leaders will decide.


After the collapse of Bojo and the Trusterfuck what was obviously required was a stately figure able to make manifest the virtues, but since the only way to get peace in the conservative party was to offer a truce we had to accept Braverman at the home office, even though she’s already been sacked for being basically the devil, now she’s been caught again, will she resign?

In the end only if she is forced to by the very people who brokered the deal that put her there.

So since it’s tories deciding, probably not.
