I don't know if this is of interest to any of you but it's a live tracker of cases worldwide. of course it is not 100% accurate because not everyone is testing etc the same. It's only confirmed cases.

Such an idiot that his popularity is above his predecessors and his governments popularity, as well as the Chancellors, has risen dramatically.

That idiot you mean?

Yes I do mean that idiot who was out shaking hands with people who he knew were positive for Covid19. What a surprise that he now has it and other members of parliament who he has interacted with have it.

Any evidence for that as all I can find is unattributable comments and speculation on Left leaning MSM

Quite a few MSM sites comment on him getting it and those around him who are also experiencing symptoms and have self isolated but they don't comment or speculate on how he caught it, and lets be honest here, no-one else could really pinpoint it either.

Sky reported that inside No 10 there has been no isolation in what is effectively a working environment so he could easily have caught it inside his office, doing his job.

Throughout my life what he's done and said and is still doing (as The UK Prime Minister) is referred to as Leadership and his poll ratings show a large majority of the UK think so too. As UK PM he is not in a position to hide away, needs to be seen and heard and has loads to do for the good of the country, that he didn't flinch from doing his duty was a good thing, not something to be berated, belittled and castigated over.

Not nice to use personally held political or personal views on someone, whether they are or aren't in high office, to vent your spleen over something as nasty as Covid 19.

I saw news reports of him shoulder to shoulder and shaking hands with people at a time when he was telling everyone that social distancing is important.
You are obviously just in an argumentative mood and I am, not going to pursue this any further with you.

Suffice to say that everyone should be doing their best to halt the spread of this virus and to support those who are on the frontline, putting their own health at risk to deal with it.

I agree with both, while I think he has done a good job since taking office, he has let it slip so far as social distancing is concerned. You have the podiums not being very far apart which was an obvious mistake but the one that sticks in my mind is him leaving the commons that time where he and a bunch of others stop to speak to the speaker and they're all huddled together.

Not the most intelligent thing to do when you are preaching social distancing.

In some ways him going down with it just shows for the doubters that it does not discriminate as to who it will infect which I am sure prince Charles can also vouch for.


Both arguments aside. I hope himself, Matt Hancock and the medical officer all make a full and speedy recovery.

Still not produced any evidence of that or that he infected other MPs, particularly as several were self isolating well before he tested positive.

Shouldn't let facts get in the way of fake news or personal dislike/prejudice though eh

As for prejudice or personal dislike you have no idea what I actually think of Boris as a pm so you are jumping to conclusions. I was simply remarking on his handling of the current crisis not him as a person.

Ok so I said I wont engage with you on this anymore and you have caught me. But this is the last time. Lets stop bitching at each other (in fact I havn't attacked you despite you attacking me)

Both Johnson & Trump were deniers of the virus and its potential impact, Trump called it a 'hoax' 3 weeks ago. Johnson tried to ignore the impact in desperation to cosy up to Trump for a possible (but very unlikely) quick trade deal with the US post Brexit. Now he's making ordinary people in the UK pay for his utter selfishness and 'business' priority mentality. Of course now both he and Trump have made massive u-turns, losing all credibility worldwide. Trump's actions have made the US very likely to be the worst hit nation by the virus with the UK a very close 2nd.
