Ah but what about Voldemort?
For anyone who is confused about Steve's comment above, Voldemort is a character in the famed book Harry Potter and the Deathly Parrot. The book is a parable with a number of thinly disguised characters and institutions. For example, in the book the Department for Exiting the European Union becomes "The Ministry of Magic" whose main function is to spread outrageous lies and exaggerated falsehoods, a very good example of these ridiculous unsupported claims have been very usefully set out for us in this thread in the post at 20 Mar 19 - 01:02 PM. The evil Voldemort bears a very close resemblance to Jacob Rees-Mogg and ghostly unreal Death Eaters are the European Research Group.
The book's author wanted to find a place for a character to represent Boris Johnson but as she was unable to to create a buffoon character that was as ridiculous as the real life person, she wrote that character out of the book.
