This painting is about global warming, with a personal letter transcribed on the surface. It is an appeal to the Boris Johnson to exercise his rule breaking tendencies for the good of mankind to initiate a Green New Deal:
Covid19 is devastating our people, with thousands of personal tragedies rocking the nation and proving how vulnerable we are. Existing rules and promises no longer apply; new solutions need to be found. You clearly have a radical approach to governing and are prepared to break rules and try the unthinkable, and you are committed to Make Britain Great Again. This is arguably your most important quality for the global crisis we are facing.
You say you love your country, but you have spent the last 3 years sowing seeds of division and distrust, and your Party has created austerity and endorsed the dismantling of our beloved NHS. However, your reputation of trustworthiness could be salvaged by promising bailouts and concessions to fossil fuel companies, on condition that they 1) stop extraction immediately, 2) restore nature, 3) divest to green technology and energy and 4) implement a Five Year Green New Deal after Lockdown. They must appoint Science and Environmental Directors to their Boards, and an independent consultant would be established to ensure every decision that affects the environment is good for all species. This would create a huge job market, with potential for education, retraining, regeneration and growth for a sustainable future.
You would go down in history as the most effective weapon against the tide of destruction now sweeping the globe, and your country will be hailed as the hero of the hour. You will rest easy knowing you have done the best for your country and the world in your time as Prime Minister. Your critics will be stunned into verbage by cynicism, which never helped anybody!Taking this step will ensure your premiership equals that of your hero, Winston Churchill.
