You may have seen some news reports suggesting that contingency plans were made for Boris Johnson’s death of coronavirus – suggesting that his recovery may have been miraculous in some way.
In other words, the Tories and their supine media were trying to cook up a “back from the dead” story for Johnson, painting him as a Messiah-figure who has returned from the brink of the grave to bring strong leadership to a country desperately in need of it.
In other words, they’re trying to feed us another load of old pigswill.
Boris Johnson isn’t a messiah – he’s a sexist, racist, homophobic, cowardly liar.
Remember his Brexit campaign, when he lied that the NHS would be given £350 million a week? That investment might have done us all some good, prior to the coronavirus crisis but it was never going to happen because the Tories have been running the NHS down to make it ripe for privatisation – which would have made the UK even less capable of handling Covid-19.
Remember when he tried to make a joke of the massive loss of lives in the Libyan city of Sirte during that nation’s civil war? Or when he had to be stopped from inappropriately quoting a colonial poem by Kipling in Myanmar?
Remember when Eddie Mair, on BBC Radio 4, read out a litany of Johnson’s racist behaviour, to the dismay of Amber Rudd?
When Johnson refused to condemn widespread police violence against civilians in Catalonia?
When he spoke nonsense about Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe in Parliament, and the Iranian government used it to threaten her with an extra five years in prison, beyond the five she was already serving on a trumped-up charge?
When he was reprimanded by then-Commons Speaker John Bercow for referring to Emily Thornberry in “frankly sexist” terms?
When he praised Viktor Orban on his election win in Hungary after an anti-Semitic campaign?
His sexist and Islamophobic comments about women who wear the burqa?
The £53 million he spaffed on a ‘Garden Bridge’ that was never built?
His cowardice during the Tory leadership campaign when he was the absentee candidate?
The racist poem he published, saying that Scottish people were a “verminous” race that should be placed in ghettos and exterminated?
His racist assessment of the French as “turds“?
The allegation that Downing Street sought to restrict Johnson’s access to sensitive intelligence when he became Foreign Secretary?
The evidence that he met a Russian ex-KGB agent without being accompanied by his personal security detail, which strongly suggested that he was harming the UK’s security in relation to Russia? What happened about the so-called ‘Russia report’, discussing such security issues, that Johnson has been suppressing since before the general election last year?
His reference to gay men as “tank top-wearing bumboys“?
His question about Irish PM Leo Varadkar: “Why isn’t he called Murphy like the rest of them?”
His clueless claim that hard work can cure mental illness?
His relaxed attitude to his MPs abusing women?
His lie that the NHS would get 20 hospital upgrades, starting in his first week as prime minister – that he then edited out of a video?
His illegal attempt to prorogue Parliament?
His obscene description of then-Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn?
The corruption scandal in which he allegedly gave public money to his friend Jennifer Arcuri? What happened about that, by the way?
The allegation that Boris had taken money for his Tory leadership campaign from a group of hedge fund bosses who planned to make a fortune by getting him to force a “no deal” Brexit? What happened about that, by the way?
His decision to run away when the UK was flooded and needed strong leadership?
His failure to follow his own social distancing rules and subsequent illness with coronavirus? If he had died, it would have been of stupidity.
But he was never in any danger of death – and the people of the UK are registering their disgust at this latest attempt to make fools of us:
I don't think doctors work like this, do you?
I do think Cummings is at work here building a Cult of
Boris, don't you?
I do think the MSM is either extraordinarily gullible or shamefully complicit, don't you? https://t.co/4thULxw7Fx

Pronounce him dead when he hadn't even been intubated or placed a High Dependency ward?
Bit premature don't you think?
He couldn't find a fridge to hide in so he sought refuge in a ICU bed. No one could touch him in there…easy really.

As a nurse of 20 years I am sick to the back teeth of hearing of how "touch and go" it was for @BorisJohnson, the man didn't even end up on a ventilator! And certainly wouldn't have gone to ITU if he'd been Mr Jo Public! Get a grip man! #COVID19 #BorisJohnson #propaganda

I don't think arrangements were made, in case he died
– but I do think that arrangements should be made to get the murderous liar, and his creepy mate, out of Downing Street

The only sane choice is to agree with the sentiment immediately above.
