Skip down to second video.

It is a very interesting run-down on how devious political machinations are difficult to engineer in a system that has more than one party. It also shows how Boris Johnson's lack of attention to details undermined his own scheming to control the vote that would have put his people in the right positions to stop the release of the Russia Report, which he has been so intent on burying.

At 7:58 There is a nod to how Trump (used Barr) to frame the results of the Mueller report before the report was published, in order to control what people thought was in the report, before it was actually published.

At 12:00 The guy says that he thinks that what is in the report was the fact that an investigation concluded that Russia meddled in their election and the meddling favored Boris Johnson and his party. The real reveal is the fact that Boris Johnson did not want to disclose this information because it would question his legitimacy, and that's why they're trying to block the report.

Until now.
