Why do we let sociopathic megalomaniacs who are completely incapable of being honest in seats of government, when lying becomes this pathological politicians should be held accountable.

The pm is an indolent entitled baffoon. Even b4 his supposed C-19 diagnosis he wasn't turrning up for press breafings, why? Because he was too indolent to avail him self of the information needed to appear competent when answering questions from the press.

Thats the reason their keeping him out of contention with the C-19 excuse with what must be the longest convalescence in history for a flu viris. Particularly when he wasn't that serious to be on a ventilator in the first place

What were all these lazy useless pricks doing before Brexit and Corona. Drinking in the Parliament bar or sleeping in the Commons.
Why do they all talk in this weird way. Fast as Farst, Past as Parst, Last as Larst, Mask as Marsk.
There aren't any R's in any of these simple words. Maybe they can't actually read at all.

What was it the guardian believed would have improved if Boris attended rather than be briefed ? Judging by the MSM’s “questions” they believe this is a naturally occurring outbreak of a virus yet seen or recorded in history yet we expect a load of (mainly) upper class trough dwellers to click their fingers and sort it !! Maybe if more than just a handful of society had the cynical gene and less of the ‘I’m alright jack’ gene . We could see the world for what it is. Have fun watching the mad scientist litter the atmosphere with his… Read more »
