Cnut-like Johnson exposed during press conference
Boris Johnson today claimed that the UK could ‘turn the tide’ on the coronavirus crisis within 12 weeks if everyone in the UK follows the government’s ‘advice’.
“We don’t know where we are”
Within minutes, he was then forced to admit that:
- he didn’t know what turning the tide meant
- he didn’t know how long it would take – and that ‘we don’t know where we are’
- the spread of the virus is showing no signs yet of responding to his measures to slow it – measures that ignore World Health Organisation recommendations
None of his habitual bluster could hide the fact that he’d made a claim he was completely unable to justify:
And his expression when the question was asked made it perfectly clear what he thought about being challenged:
BBC News broadcast Johnson’s fiasco – but that didn’t prevent the channel repeating his claim without challenge at the top of its flagship 6pm bulletin.
Johnson is unfit for office – and there must be a reckoning for the lives his arrogance and nonsense will cost.
