Now Boris has the virus, but he's not too poorly

I've just heard that our Prime Minister has the virus.

I really hope no-one is harmed from this - but he caught it from someone and he may have spread it. One infection typically leads to two to three others. Each of those to two or three others and so on. It soon gets to thousands.
I saw him and Rishi Sunak standing outside No. 10 last night showing their admiration and respect for the NHS. They were a good two metres apart, on the pavement.
Yes on the pavement. Not on the doorstep, balcony or in a window as the organisers had sensibly  suggested. No they were on the pavement. In the photo below Boris has come out of No. 10 skipped down the two doorsteps (you know, the ones he should have stood on) and stood on the pavement. By pure chance Rishi enters stage left and stands two metres away from Boris. What timing.

So is this another case of do what I say, not what I do ?
As we know:
Strict Rules have been placed on people's personal movement to limit the spread of coronavirus.
Under the restrictions, people must stay at home, and only leave for the following reasons:
- to exercise once a day - either alone or with members of your household.
- shopping for basic necessities, although this should be done as little as possible.
- medical need or to provide care for a vulnerable person.
- travel to and from work but only where this is absolutely necessary.

Bad news guys. Photo opportunity isn't on the list.
In the scheme of things this wasn't bad. They were nearly at home, or is it work, or both ? Boris was nearly on his step and they were standing apart.

TV coverage of this event showed plenty of people across the country using this as an excuse to mingle randomly at close quarters in the street.

The cruel irony here is that what was designed as a thank-you to the NHS, may actually result in a spike of infections, quite the opposite of what they need.

Second home beckons ?

Priti is back - "I am leading..." just when we thought things couldn't get any worse !

Back in February Priti Patel, Home Secretary (aaarrgghh !!), repeatedly vowed to tackle "counter-terrorism offenders" following a shocking knife attack in Streatham. 

Since then her profile has been very low, I'm glad to say. 

Until yesterday that is....

According to the Daily Mail website, 9/4/2020:

Ms Patel, who has not been seen or heard in public since March 23, said in an unexpected radio interview this evening that police must not act in a 'heavy-handed' manner during the coronavirus lockdown. 

This on the same day that Downing Street said Britain was at a 'critical juncture' in the battle to curb the spread of the disease and with good weather forecast for the long weekend.

According to the Daily Mail, in the same article, she also stated  " .... what I would say is that I speak to the police every day, in fact I am leading operational calls every single day with our blue light family"

Really ? Leading operational calls every single day ? Can th…

More than 50,000 additional deaths and Stanley is flogging a book !! Outrageous

On Sky News this morning we had: Stanley Johnson re-launching his book "The Virus".

As the body count mounts (now one of the highest in the world) at the incompetent hands of a government led by his hopeless son Boris, Stanley is now trying to make a few quid out of his book.
"It's got a new cover" he chortled.

All proceeds to the the NHS ?

What do you think ?

Okay Priti, read the script, then answer the questions - got that ?

No. 10 press conference, Saturday 11/4. The format is familiar now. A senior politician flanked by one or two experts.

Unfortunately the senior politician was Priti Patel. Whoever thought it was a good idea to put her out must be kicking themselves now.  

Reading from a script she got off to a bad start, the summary of the key numbers went badly wrong. These are important numbers but this is what we got: "as of 9am today three hundred thousand and thirty four, nine hundred and seventy four thousand tests have been carried out across the UK excluding Northern Ireland". No hesitation, just carried on. Just like in February when she vowed (at least four times) to tackle "counter terrorism". Did that crazy number on Saturday sound right ?  Not to us, but apparently it was fine to the Home Sec. !! Onwards and upwards....

So that's three hundred thousand and thirty four, nine hundred and seventy four thousand according to Priti. I haven't seen the script, but it'…
