    All because he just had to have his fucking Princess Di moment.

    I'm not "praying for him to die" but it has to be admitted that it's the 'toppest of keks', I believe the phrase is? We used to call it hubris, but that's out of fashion now, so topkeks it is.

    In some ways this does feel a bit unfair to Johnson. For his entire life, he's been given every indication that he can treat people like toys and now - at age 55 - he's being forced to confront the notion that his actions have consequences.

    In a very real way, he's a victim of the complete failure of the social and educational environment he has been in for his whole 55 years to equip him with the notion that being a stupid selfish fucking bellend might actually catch up with him one day. Frankly, he's due an apology of some kind, assuming he survives the predictable consequences of his self-regarding cockwombling.

    Also while I'm never quite sure whether I'm an atheist or not, there's one thing I am confident about and that is that internationalist prayer is laughable bullshit. But there's always the uneasy suspicion that the universe likes a rough chuckle or two.

    alternatively,

    he's a son/father/fiancee/father to be and probably a friend to someone, and the political leader of the country, at maybe the most unstable time in the countries history since WW2.

    it is desperately sad for anyone to die (globally, let alone the UK) from this - but ignoring the politics of the man, which i don't particularly care for, he is one of the very few people (up there with the queen) that the country could probably not do without them dying right now.

    so perhaps, the irony or schadenfreude about his health could wait until a few weeks time when either he is a) dead, b) not dead or c) we're somewhat through this.

    Boris utterly fucked up the pandemic response, failed to prepare the health service, failed to mitigate the spread of the virus in time. Testing was shit. Contact tracing was shit. Isolation was shit. Travel restrictions on infected people were shit.

    He lived in a lala land of herd immunity and do nothing retardation.

    Thousands are dead already, tens of thousands more will most likely die. The blood of a large number of those deaths is on Boris' hands.

    Boris has proven, unfortunately, to be a liability to the country. If he doesn't die, he should be sacked.

    OK Stalin so what about the leaders of other countries where there are thosuands of deaths too. Does the Spanish leader of the socialists also have blood on his hands?

    While I am not very well informed, i distinctly remember that even his siblings thought he was being a bellend about the brexit thing.

    Its easy to say, oh its societys fault, he grew up poor in the ghetto he never had a chance, that is deeply unfair to the plethora of people of had the same background but managed not to turn out a cunt.


    Just to clarify, i never wish death on anyone. But maybe this will be a learning experience for him. Doubt it tho.

    Yes.

    With the caveat that I haven't followed Spain particularly closely, the Spanish corona virus response appears to have been shit.

    Nobody here is asking to sympathise with the spanish commie guy for causing, whether through malice or incompetence, untold damage to a whole country.

    I am sure if putin got put under you would be the first to dance on the hypothetical grave. He has people too!

    So does everyone else.

    So the Spanish leader also has blood on his hands right? How about Italy? They have more deaths too. You consider Conte a Conte? How about Macron? Shit too there I guess [especially after they nicked the Spanish face masks]? Germany has more infected than the UK. Guess Merkel has blood on her hands too right?

    Its as almost as if the world is infected by a virus it hasn't seen before. You do realise that Boris is actually doing what the CMO and CSO are saying right? I know you believe the PM to be super-human with a degree in virology and psychic powers but he is just as human as Macron, Sanchez and Merkel in deferring to the experts. Why aren't you attacking the experts that the PM is listening to or is this just more dog-whistling?

    I literally answered "Yes." and you edited it out of the quote.

    So, to be clear, this is a "when the tide goes out you learn who has been swimming naked" moment. A lot of governments have been more or less getting away with being run by mediocrities and incompetents because they've been coasting in relatively good times.

    A virus doesn't care about your ideology. You don't get a pass if you're Socialist or Conservative. You get a pass if you keep the infection rate and the death rate down.

    Pointing around and saying "Italy is incompetent" doesn't give Boris or the Conservative Party a pass for being incompetent. It just means that both are incompetent and both need reform.

    Grow up.

    Italy was blindsided by this and most European countries reacted to it as it unfolded.

    Except Boris and his government who spent the first week pushing a herd immunity narrative against the advice of literally everyone.

    People are already dead that might not have been had he not been the heartless scumbag that he is.

    He's also cheated on all his previous lovers and refuses to acknowledge the existence of his children.

    If he dies of this his apotheosis will be incredibly irritating. Better people have already and will die of this.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.
