Johnson sets up secret Whitehall task force to excuse him from Covid-19 mistakes

Johnson’s Covid-19 strategy: this Times cartoon seems to have it right; don’t expect his private inquiry to come to the same conclusions.

Isn’t it strange that Boris Johnson can tell us it isn’t time to have a public inquiry into his Covid-19 strategies – but then orders one to be carried out in private?

The claim is that the Department of Health team will examine lessons to be learned and recommend action.

But I think somebody on Twitter summed up the reality of the situation much better:

“Johnson isn’t looking for the facts. He’s looking for something he can tell Parliament.” That’ll be something to excuse him from any wrongdoing.

    It’s already started, the lies, Hancock’s March 16th re-writing history, there were no mistakes, mistakes are only made by those who know what they are doing but did it wrongly. Nothing will come of this much like any other report on the government.

    What is Lardy fascist dictator boris so frightened of being made public that he had to set up yet another ‘secret group?’ Not only is fascist dictator boris wasting our public money he is also behaving like a dictator because this is what such men do – they create secret organisations to issue lies – oops I mean propaganda proclaiming the male dictator is such a wonderful caring man! As if!!

    Where’s the ‘transparency’ fascist tories commonly utter in a failed attempt to justify their male corporate greed and callous arrogance towards us peasants? Nowhere to be seen because yet another secret group has been created thereby causing more tangled lies!

    Democracy what democracy – it is non existent in UK and instead we have fascist little england!
