Anger at question about NHS consultant’s description of Johnson’s ‘falsely placed optimism exposes how blow stung – and video evidence of his performance just 24hrs earlier closes the case
Boris Johnson reacted angrily today when journalist Sam Coates dared to tell him that a hospital consultant had described the folly of Johnson’s reaction to the coronavirus pandemic as ‘falsely-placed optimism’.
A clearly-stung Johnson’s anger grew more and more visible at the exposure of his flip-flopping and unfounded claims – but a comparison of his response with his claims and admissions yesterday showed that the Coates was absolutely right to raise the NHS expert’s assessment:
Johnson’s false outrage cannot disguise his culpability. He has misled the nation – and has failed even at that, forcing him to flipflop from day to day and rely, as the Tories so often do, on the media to cover for him.
But now, lives are at risk on a scale even greater than has been tragically normal under Tory government.
