Arrogant and cowardly PM wants to shift blame yet again, in spite of record of consistent and wilful failure
Boris Johnson says it’s your fault that the UK is suffering a massive ‘second wave’ of the coronavirus pandemic. Speaking to the BBC, the Tory PM claimed ‘everyone’ became ‘complacent’ over the virus and this ‘fraying of people’s discipline’ led to the second wave.
But Johnson was warned for months – including by his own SAGE scientists almost half a year ago – that re-opening schools would drive up the virus’s spread. He was warned for months, with evidence from multiple countries that had seen it happen, that re-opening indoor hospitality would do the same.
The Tories’ instructions to the public have been so confusing that even Johnson gets them wrong when questioned, giving the public little chance of following them properly regardless of motivation.
And he took no action whatever against Dominic Cummings, whose repeated trips to the north-east, including a 60-mile round trip to ‘test his eyesight’, destroyed public confidence in anti-pandemic measures.
Not only that, only a month ago he told MPs that he takes,
full responsibility for everything that has happened under this government.’
Well, the second wave comes under ‘everything’, yet true to form, Johnson now wants to blame the public for the consequences of his decisions.
This is the same Johnson who refused even to express regret for the tens of thousands of needless deaths his delays and arrogance during the first wave caused. Is anyone really gullible enough to fall for his cowardly excuses and blame-shifting any more?
