Was the job of Prime Minister too much for Boris?

    A massive campaign of lies by Dominic Cummings wiped-out huge sections of Labour support.  This has put an outright liar into control in the UK.  To date, Boris has not done one good thing for the UK!  The UK faces economic ruin from BREXIT and has suffered far more deaths from Covid-19 than it should have, due entirely to BORIS JOHNSON'S government doing "NOTHING!!" in the three weeks that the virus swept towards the UK.  Today, BORIS JOHNSON believes that reducing licensing hours from 12hours a day to 11hours a day will stop infections!  It's like the country is being run by lunatics to which laws don't apply and for which the media hide every single cock-up they make.  Every single day, the media spend more time attacking the opposition party than reporting the disaster that Johnson's government has made:  It's insane!

    On the contrary. Vladimir Putin is very happy with the job done by Boris Johnson and Donald Trump

    Probably. He is a charismatic politician but relies on waffling too much for a PM.

    Yes he has no common sense and doesn't know what the people are thinking if he did he would resign right now.

    At the moment BoJo is still Prime Minister, so, in the interests of accuracy, "Is the job....?

    Not at all, but it is easy to criticise from mummy’s basement or a benefit funded bedsit.

    What job do you excel at?

    Ever won an election or even voted for the winner in one?

    Armchair experts are invariably bores.

  • In these times of trouble any PM would be put under immense stress and when Boris Johnson said, "let's get Brexit done" and the public gave him that chance, no one realised our economy would be crippled by this pandemic, and indeed the world's economy too. 

    In the grand scheme, Britain has faired no worse than other European countries and we can see that Coronovirus cases are increasing in places such as Spain and France with New measures to stop the spread having been introduced just as with the UK. 

    The difference in Britain is that certain factions are ignoring government guidelines and failing to socially distance by having house parties or crowding into venues. 

    Then we have the ethnic population visiting mosques and churches that have no regard for elder members of their family who are more susceptible to the virus. 

    One of the UKs biggest problems is lack of discipline and failure to obey the rules, whereas in places such as Germany people do what they are told and consequently the infection rate is lower.

    If Johnson is mishandling the pandemic then he is only mishandling it in the same way as other countries.  

    Like other countries, UK did not close its borders quickly in Feb - we let people go on skiing holidays in Italy and unfortunately they brought back the bad strain of COVID we experienced.  

    Our NHS was shown up as poor by our very high COVID death rate for infected - pretty much the highest in the world.

    Right now we are still stupidly allowing unnecessary travel to countries where COVID is soaring - you've got to be daft if you think people are quarrantining on return - Bolton has a surge caused by a super spreader who went to Spain then straight to the pubs when he got back.

    It seems more like a group-think problem to me.  Unsurprisingly people in the group will look to scapegoats when it goes wrong, Cummings, Boris - etc.

    No more than it has been for other people like Mrs May. He is having to be a leader in unprecedented times having been affected by the disease itself. Ultimately it comes down to the public taking collective responsibility for their actions and not trying to scapegoat the politicians.

    This is my observation as I am not living in the UK.  Boris Johnson is an incompetent prime minister especially in his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.  I don't think he had any long term strategy for dealing with Brexit either. From what is being reported on Canadian TV news channels Boris isn't consistent in his pronouncements in dealing the Covid-19.  One day it's herd immunity, another day it's a complete lockdown, another day it's easing restrictions, another it's people can go back to work, etc.
