As the coronavirus pandemic broke out of China to begin its inexorable march across the planet, Prime Minister Boris Johnson shocked the country on March 5th 2020 when he announced at a press briefing (and on the popular This Morning programme) addressing a very concerned British public anxious for government guidance that the pandemic's arrival was inevitable and was expected to kill many people, but that his government's official position was to ignore international expert advice to immediately lock down our air and maritime ports, begin stringent virus testing and tracing and to immediately ban large public gatherings and sports events, choosing instead to basically do nothing and simply allow the devastating virus to "sweep the country" and infect 60 - 80% of the population in the absurd unsubstatiated premise that somehow this human carnage would magically confer "herd immunity". Following a massive outcry from alarmed medical experts and the not-so-stupid public, Johnson publicly performed a policy u-turn on April 12th, when it became obvious that he and his government of incompetents purposefully, arrogantly squandered six critical weeks of public health emergency planning which has been directly responsible for thousands of preventable deaths across the UK and has rapidly crippled the UK economy.
After two squandered years of hubris, brinkmanship, savage internal party fighting, lying to the public and managing to insult all our European trade partners upon whose goodwill will are about to depend on, and with just over 60 days to go until we leave the EU, Theresa May's utterly incompetent Brexit proposal grinds to a complete halt as Parliament delivers a stunning vote of no confidence and rejects her plan.
