    Bound to be highlighted by the lefty Tory bashers who love to point out that BJ didn't introduce lock down soon enough or is relaxing it too soon.

    Easy to have the best of both worlds and do everything perfectly when you're in opposition.

            Folk think Starmer is their saviour. They are in for such a let down.

            I see the minor parties are still wallowing in irrelevance.

                  The fact that it only dropped by 20% shows that “lockdown” was BS even in April - end result is rates of infection a lot higher than France/Italy/Spain - if we don’t have it suppressed to very small numbers by September than we’ll have a mother of all second waves - and it ain’t oppositions fault, it’s Borises specifically - an incompetent demagogue, morbidly obese piece of tulip - and that in good days
