BORIS looks awful

Does anyone else agree he looked awful when doing the briefing this evening. All this with DC after having covid 19 I think is taking its toll.

MissAdventure Mon 25-May-20 19:41:34

Yes.
He looks past and worn out, but as soon as he mentions integrity and Cummings my sympathy dwindles.

Whitewavemark2 Mon 25-May-20 19:42:16

Spent force.

Time he went

paddyanne Mon 25-May-20 19:46:51

worried about what skeletons will tumble out of his closet if he has to sack DC ,and I bet he's not the only one

varian Mon 25-May-20 19:50:21

DC must have some serious dirt to dish on him, but what? We all know he is a proven liar and adulterer. Has he been found out doing something much worse?

EllanVannin Mon 25-May-20 19:53:14

I've been saying this for long enough. The man is unwell.

EllanVannin Mon 25-May-20 19:54:40

I've also said that DC has " something " on BJ.

NotSpaghetti Mon 25-May-20 19:54:55

Yes. Unwell.
This was his shortest briefing ever.

Whitewavemark2 Mon 25-May-20 19:55:10

Yes but what?

EllanVannin Mon 25-May-20 19:56:28

Nothing shocks nor surprises me anymore. You don't have to be a Philadelphia lawyer to work anything out.

Looks awful, maybe still unwell (or wanting sympathy) but it's hardly unexpected. After all, he's not up to the job and didn't want all this, just wanted to 'Get Brexit Done'.

Devorgilla Mon 25-May-20 20:17:39

With a majority of 80 odd they don't need Boris. They just need a Brexiteer. Boris goes and Dominic is collateral damage.

EllanVannin Mon 25-May-20 20:29:46

Cummings was disliked by both Theresa May and also David Cameron who he clashed with. Then took an active part in Brexit.
Methinks he's a user for his own ends of course with BJ being his puppet. Psychopaths use people then drop them like a hot coal when they're no further use.

I think David Cameron was right in his description of Cummings being a " career psychopath " something which I too would have said.
A Guardian journalist once said he was either " mad, bad or brilliant---or all three.

Once living in Yeltzin's Russia he ventured on setting up an airline from Russia to Vienna. Aeroflot anyone ? grin

He insulted Nick Clegg's proposals on free school meals as something " he'd dreamed up on the back of a cigarette packet ".

This is where I'm right off him now when his remark that followed the herd immunity and he'd said, I quote," herd immunity, protect the economy and if that means some pensioners die, too bad, "unquote.

I know a journo who works for the Guardian, who along with the Mirror investigated Cummings on 22nd of May.
It'll be interesting now to see what else they come up with from this " career psychopath ".

The sole qualificatation for a ministerial position in this awful government is blind loyalty to brexit, Boris and his Svengali, Dominic Cummings, which is why we see this sort of disgusting performance by the Attorney General, whose role is to uphold the law of the land.

When I read the title of this thread all I could think was "Boris is awful"

EllanVannin Mon 25-May-20 20:44:20

That won't happen either Varian, or it'll be seen as a racist slant.

ElaineI Mon 25-May-20 20:51:53

No he doesn't look well and hasn't since he started with symptoms. Don't support him but I think he should be off work and resting.

MissAdventure Mon 25-May-20 20:52:45

So, those who disagree with what poor old cummings did aren't good parents, seems to be the implication.

Furret Mon 25-May-20 21:20:04

Think Boris should resign. Or better still call a GE. Won’t happen of course.

merlotgran Mon 25-May-20 21:31:17

Why on earth would he call a GE?

lemongrove Mon 25-May-20 21:34:41

Why on earth would he resign either?😁
A bit of wishful thinking on the part of some.
I actually thought he looked ok tonight, considering his recent illness, and his hair looked normal for a change.

GrannyGravy13 Mon 25-May-20 21:36:08

merlotgran ditto

Oopsminty Mon 25-May-20 21:41:09

Funny how we see things differently

I actually said to my DH that I thought Boris looked much better today

NotSpaghetti Tue 26-May-20 10:01:34

There's evidence now about this virus that says it returns in mini-waves of symptoms over months.
I think he should delegate and take some time off. I'm no fan of his but think he does need to stay away and get well.

Purplepixie Tue 26-May-20 10:04:16

I have no sympathy for Boris after he back Dominic shithawk!
