Johnson is back at work and one of the first things he did was make a statement outside of No 10.
Of course any leader is going to try to talk up their decisions and actions, but I think Johnson’s statement was right out of the realms of fantasy.
“ look at our apparent success”.
Let’s remind ourselves of the “apparent success”
At the moment deaths in hospitals are in excess of 20000, and will continue to increase.
Care home deaths were not even considered worth recording during the initial weeks, and we still have no accurate figures.
The 20k alone is how many civilians were killed in WW11.
As many are stating
“If that is success, I would hate to see what Johnson’s considers a failure”
The world is looking at the U.K. in horror and we are rapidly becoming the role model as to how not to handle a pandemic.
This is a government who neglected to provide sufficient PPE for all clinicians and care workers.
It took no notice of the success of those countries whose test, track and test methods succeeded in absolutely keeping a lid on the virus, or at least keeping it under firm control.
This is a government who simply refused to take the pandemic seriously at the start, the consequence of which we are seeing with the death toll.
Johnson honeymoon period will be over in days.
Judgement day is fast coming down the track.
I can think of many questions that need answering and that is just over covid. But there are many more that will need looking at and answered.
