No wonder you love Bojo & Handjob - you find lying just as easy as the pair of them.

You would 'support' Corbyn? Absolute bulls***. You call him every single day for stuff he doesn;t do, yet you'd support him if he killed thousands of people.

You've just been well & truly caught out Bristle. Anything you say from now on is pointless.
How have I been caught out, I always support the PM of the time. I even supported Bliar when he went after imaginary WMD. Supported him because it had been a majority decision to put the cretin in power, believing in democracy it’s what you do.

Gaz, the information coming through about all the mistakes made is frightening. Yes, I know this is a new, unforeseen situation for us all and there will be errors. That's not the issue, it's the callous, stupid, reckless way it's happened.

Now I'm in Scotland, at least we have a real leader in charge. She's made mistakes too but put her hand up. It's scary to see how badly the UK Government is run, and how backwards much of the population are. No wonder so many Europeans laugh at us, we're that small, insular, stubborn Island nation who doesn't quite know how to behave.

Why? Did you not protest against the Iraq war? We all knew it was wrong & it was lies. The Tories backed Blair though so maybe that's why!! Meanwhile your pal Jeremy was correct yet again.

You've hit the nail on the head. Europe does laugh at us, in fact the world laughs at us. We still think we're some super power & the public fall for it. The majority just do what they're told.

Vote Brexit - we can make this island great again. Oh ok.
Vote Tory - anything is better than Corbyn. Oh ok.

Very few stop to think for themselves. Very few stop and think why we're force fed this propaganda. Anybody who does question is a 'remoaner' or a 'socialist with an agenda'.

It's such a sad country to live in now. Well done you for escaping to Scotland.

Bristle used him to tell us that things would be even worse if Corbyn was in charge. It all stems from Bristle's claim.

Why not blame me for starting the bloody pandemic. If Corbyn had won the election he would still have been in control, Labour for all their many faults would not have replaced an election winner.

June 21 is looking pretty ropey. After his Christmas calamity and now this, it'll be amazing if anyone believes anything he says. Maybe he'll be defiant & steam ahead, but I'm thinking he really needs to stop & wait another short while.

Boris is in an unenviable no win situation. Loads of people condemning him even before he decides anything, one way or another. They all love criticising but never have a single answer to the problems.

Yes, we do have an answer. It's simply not to make big statements when you don't know what will happen. The Scottish Government for example haven't made these big announcements, and were far more clued up on what happened at Christmas for example.

Johnson has came up with lots of fibs & false promises, how many has Sturgeon made?? In fact, it's the other way around as the more sensible Scottish, Welsh & Northern Irish parliaments were put under pressure to follow Bojo's lead and give the false hope that people seem to crave.

NHS not under pressure (other than the usual tory underfunding which has been going on for years) and not in any danger whatsoever of being 'overwhelmed' whatever that actually means, 10s of millions 'vaccinated' so no justification whatsoever not to lift ALL draconian restrictions on our civil liberties on June 21. And for anyone still worried and who doesn't wish to leave the house despite being vaccinated then stay indoors for the rest of your days and protect yourself that way but allow the rest of us to live our lives.

Hear Hear, and for those who refuse to take the vaccine, the latest news is the earth is not flat. The latest figures show that approx 85% of new infections are with those who have had neither injection.

So, it's freedom day next Monday & if it all goes tits up, it's our fault.

I'm so proud of this government - real leaders.

Haven’t a lot of people been clamouring for this for weeks and saying the government is moving too slowly. I notice the leader of the opposition has disappeared down a hole which he span himself whilst doing so many u-turns. He hasn’t said it’s your fault it’s up to individuals to make up their own mind. My mind is made up, I won’t change, if I go in a shop or pub I shall keep wearing a mask unless I’m eating or drinking. If I go on a bus or train I shall wear a mask. I think that is being responsible.

You need to read the news Bristle.

Starmer, Sadiq Khan & Andy Burnham have all said face masks should still be compulsory in public areas & transport. However, you do need to expand beyond the BBC and the right wing media to find that info.

Allowing people to make their own minds up shows a total lack of leadership. It's a 'don't blame me if it all goes wrong' approach. Governments are supposed to lead, set rules. This lot are more concerned with where they can get their next shag from or pull off a business deal for one of their mates.
