Boris Johnson: 'Let the bodies pile high in their thousands'. PM's incendiary remark during fight over lockdowns

 
That's in relation to having a third lockdown

My God - that's a spectacularly awful thing to say, even for Boris 'verbal diarrhea' Johnson.

Tragically you just know that the Covid Recovery Group of Tory MPs, who were frequently on the airwaves fulminating about the cost of lockdown measures to businesses, but who were never heard  fulminating about the UK's Covid death rate; would feel very relaxed about Johnson blurting it out. In factm such a remark would be very soothing to certain type of Tory.

Thing is you could not really imagine May or  Cameron saying such a thing but Boris you could.

I assume the source for the quote is Cummings.

It's not a quote at all. It's a bit like Vera down the road saying a friend of hers heard a friend saying Boris said it so it must be true, too many gullible people on here me thinks that like to think it is....

Just like Boris Johnson didn't call black people 'flag waving picaninnies with water melon smiles' or gay people 'tank topped bum boys'....I could go on. Boris Johnson has a history of saying things that are totally unacceptable, and in full knowledge of this people voted for him. And defend him by attacking his detractors as 'snowflakes'. 

Anyway, the Daily Mail, which is hardly left wing, is quoting Johnson as saying it. So you can't even complain that it's all 'left wing stirring'.

It is presented as a quote on the front page of The Daily Mail. 
 

If it isn’t true, I’m sure that we can all look forward to Johnson launching legal action later today.

The link to the online mail story is here :

 

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9510133/Boris-Johnson-said-bodies-pile-high-order-lockdown-sources-claim.html

 

What's interesting (well, to me anyway 😛) is looking at the comments section. Normally, the comments section is chock full of people who would support Boris no matter what he'd done. Whilst there is still a number of them, for a change there is also quite a large contingent critical of him. Very rare to see that in the mail.

You think you look too scary for anyone to tangle with you?

 

 

 

Interesting that you assume the only way for someone to stand up for themselves is by looking physically scary.

"I personally have had zero 'grief' in enclosed spaces when not wearing a mask- I suspect that is because anyone attempting to give me grief would get plenty back, and it probably shows."

 

I don't.  But what did you mean by "grief" then?

The Daily Mail have reported a quote that was allegedly overheard by someone and that is all and Johnson has denied it, and no matter what spin the news rags put on it it does not make it true but the gullible are prepared to accept that it is factual and true.

Why when its just hearsay and gossip reported from several sources, notice the bit in the Mail that states "sources claim". All this is is another bit of supposed news just to sell a rag.

Well, occupents in 3 out of 5 houses cannot muster the strength to wear a mask to go and do a bit of shopping or ride a bus, which makes me wonder how difficult their lives are, and no doubt will be in the future once all this has blown over, its very sad. 

 

And to have so many afflicted in such a small area made me think there might be something environmental at play - its at odds with my locale.

Like I said you're very lucky.
