    It would strain my tolerance levels, mainly that there was a filter to prevent the language that PHE/Langley deserve from getting through.

    However he is pretty damned good at avoiding media scrutiny:

    Astonishingly this afternoon’s session will mark the first time Johnson has even made a statement in the Commons on coronavirus, and only the second time he has turned up to make a statement on anything at all since this year. We’re also still waiting for his first appearance before the Commons liaison committee, eight and a half months into his premiership. More pressingly the PM has refused to give a press conference or a media interview for the past 11 days, and has managed just one presser since March 25, having been off sick for much of April. Aides say he will only take pre-recorded questions from the public tonight.
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    A lot of the working class voters I'm connected to from my home town and school etc, who voted Bojo at the last election, think he's doing a good job and still support him.

    A lot of Americans think the same of Trump.

    Most people are unable to look beyond what happens to their immediate environment. For example, if you talk to someone about the catastrophe this government is cooking, in form of the IR35 changes, all they think it is a good change, because it punishes tax avoiders and they think it is a great injustice that a self-employed doing the same job as a perm next to him or her is paying different tax.
    They don't understand that self-employed person has a company to run and the tax difference is negligible.
    This government done more damage to small business than probably any Labour government ever could.

    None of what he has missed would have had any impact on the current crisis. So why waste effort on it?

    So basically no point in having a PM then?
