Tories’ delay and dither has let UK in worst of both worlds – with England driving UK shame
The UK has today been confirmed to have the worst coronavirus death rate in the world – and the worst economic recession from the virus of any ‘G7’ country.
By locking down late the Tories caused at least 40,000 needless deaths so far among the UK’s people – and by their delay they allowed the virus to spread further and become more entrenched, which prolonged the eventual lockdown and vastly increased the economic damage it caused.
In other words, the Tories’ arrogance, incompetence, dithering and dishonesty inflicted the worst of all worlds on the people of this country, with a real total of over 70,000 deaths, a global-worst death-rate of more than 70 people per hundred thousand so far even on the government’s understated official figures – and an economy that has shrunk by more than 20% in three months:
Yet Johnson and co continue to pretend they’ve been a success – and are now trying to distract the country from the emerging second wave by pointing racist fingers at a handful of migrants.
If only we had a functioning ‘mainstream’ media – or for that matter, opposition.
