Who Should Replace Boris Johnson?

Aha- that impeccably impartial and evenhanded newspaper The Guardian. Sure to believe its accurate reportage.

And the anonymous briefer even more so.

You are letting your anti Guardian bias interfere with powers of observation. You've failed to notice that it is an opinion piece.

The rumour is of a ‘come back’ waiting to happen, but what does this person deserve to come back from?

Well Labour are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

 

They dont want to agree with Boris but they have to be seen to be supporting the NHS no matter what. The NHS is now a left wing religion.

 

So they do the opposite by demanding even harsher lockdowns.

 

It was the Libdems who voted against any an extension of the Coronavirus Act which was a bit of a curve ball that went under the radar.

It's not Labour that are stuck between a rock and a hard place, rather it's Boris Johnson. Since the Coronavirus crisis began 2 years ago Johnson is trapped between scientific advice, opinion polls that the public favour a 'safety first' strategy, and his so called 'libertarian wing' (the selfish, swivel eyed fruit loops) of his backbenchers, and those in the Telegraph/ Sun, and sometimes Mail.

He rode to power on an 80 seat majority, with this great coalition of disparate interest groups. Now he's consistently falling between horses, pleasing no one.

His fault, his problem, no-one elses

During the first lockdown there were police roadblocks and drones chasing people going for walks....but that was nearly 2 years ago

 

Personally closing the hospitality sector because there is a shortage of NHS workers should never happen. 

 

Its morally wrong for some peoples businesses and careers to be less important than others. 

 

I think we need ask whos job it was to get the NHS ready for the winter flu season and why they have failed again.

 

They cant blame lack of money because the NHS has been given a blank cheque for the last 2 years.

 

Too many unaccountable people at the NHS on six figure salaries who seem to be getting away with monumental failures 

Tell that to Ministers who awarded lucrative contracts for PPE to buddies in the hospitality or other sectors, over those in the established PPE sector.

Whose job is it to get ready for the winter flu season, and why have they failed again?

And yes they can blame a lack of money, a waterfall ( of which a great deal of which was wasted e.g. 'test and trace') after a 10 year period of a squeeze doesn't solve the problem of depleted human and physical resources.

None of which really answers the question of who should replace Johnson. 

Perhaps it should be Dildo Harding the ex head of test and trace, and wife of the anti sleaze Tory MP. :hihi:

The only way we can move forward is to treat Covid like we do cold & flu

 

If you feel your well enough to work then go to work and if your not then stay home

 

If the old and sick have been vaccinated then what more can we do?

I think rough estimates suggest that 300,000 housebound have yet to receive booster jab

Well thats easy to fix

 

Stop giving vaccines to 12 year olds who dont need them and focus on those 300,000 housebound

 

I bet we could get them all done in a day

I've no idea why Maggie Throup hasn't done it already....

I do like Steve Bell though.

That stew is bubbling nicely. 

It’s just about ready for a couple of dumplings to be added.

No. It's people, not households, whom the NHS immunises.

The post (and the article it refers to) talk about housebound people, not households.
