    Govt handling of this has been terrible IMHO.

    I would say only the USA has handled it in a worse manner.

    Hancock was either lying yesterday that he had promised 25,000 tests / day by yesterday or had forgotten.

    100,000 tests / day by the end of April.

    Still, Boris is a bit of a character, and that's what the country needs. And one mustn't disagree or that would be undemocratic.

    I wonder if he thought about his "Operation Last Gasp" joke while he was struggling to breathe, with some despised Euro Portuguese bloke keeping him alive.
    You gotta laff.

    This news segment from Peter Hitchens said it all for me:

    Matthew Hancock, Secretary of State for Health, went on national TV to threaten to ban outdoor exercise if people continued to break 'social distancing' rules.

    From a Government that claims to be preserving life and health, this threat was literally mad.

    Banning exercise for any length of time will lead to the deaths and illness of many thousands of currently healthy, older people who know that such exercise is vital to their physical and mental wellbeing.

    Such exercise can easily be taken while maintaining the required distance from others.

    The threat was a dictatorial one, of collective punishment of all for the wrongdoing of others.

    This is illegal under Article 33 of the 1949 Geneva Conventions. A foreign occupier would not be allowed to do it
    .
    "Out of his depth" doesn't go far enough TBH...

    UK leader Boris Johnson's "Operation Last Gasp" ventilator joke not so funny now | PortandTerminal.com

    This was picked up with some glee by the Euro press not surprisingly.

    Nah, "they" are still digging.

    Maybe "they"'ll eventually reach Oz.

    It's all far beyond surreal now.

    Though someone lamping Piers Morgan would make up for a lot.

    Can we send the obnoxious mother****er more of those vegan pasties that nearly killed him?
    When the fun stops, STOP.
