Johnson: The prime minister seemed close to incoherence during press conferences and broadcasts.

Not only has Boris Johnson been found to have the coronavirus, but his Health Secretary Matt Hancock is self-isolating with symptoms too.

How long until the rest of the Tory cabinet come down with it?

They’ve all been in close contact with each other, especially in the days before the country was locked down.

And Mr Johnson’s attitude to the disease was deplored as irresponsible, even after it was known to be in the UK.

Remember when he said, “I can tell you that I am shaking hands continuously. I was at a hospital the other night where … I think there were a few coronavirus patients and I shook hands with everybody, you’ll be pleased to know, and I continue to shake hands… Washing your hands is the crucial thing.”

Well, it seems Johnson didn’t wash his hands well enough, or often enough!

And if he has to give up his job to recover, so much the better. As the New York Times has just put it: “Britain needs a leader, not a joker.

According to that publication [boldings mine]: “Mr. Johnson has been indecisive, contradictory, confused and confusing, jovial when he should be grave, muddled when a frightened nation desperately needs him to be clear.

“The man picked for his supposed talents as a great communicator has stumbled his way through news conferences.

“His careless, inexcusable reluctance to track and halt the virus earlier will have cost lives.

“His switches of strategy and his lack of clarity left far too many Britons oblivious to the importance of social distancing until far too late.”

It seems poetic justice that one of the people to suffer because of this irresponsibility is the Clown Minister himself.
