We have no ‘moral duty’ to do anything Fat Boris Johnson says – especially about schools

Lecturing: when Boris Johnson gets behind the pulpit, you know he’ll only give you a load of bull.

Fat Boris Johnson really has a lot of cheek, hasn’t he?

Trying to tell us what our “moral duty” is!

Did he mention “moral duty” to his boss buddy Dominic Cummings when the latter unilaterally decided that lockdown rules didn’t count and took his trip to Barnard Castle, encouraging so many other Brits to disregard the rules in the same casual manner?

Did he consider his own “moral duty” during the many affairs he’s had with women who were not his wife?

Did he think about his “moral duty” to hold an inquiry into Tory racism while he was delaying it for eight months (and counting)?

I doubt it.

So when he told us

There is a “moral duty” to get all children back into schools in England next month

It can hardly be surprising that we reacted like this:

We all know what he means.

He knows parents won’t go back to work unless their kids have a place to go, so he’s trying to emotionally blackmail us into sending them back before we know it’s safe. And consider this:

Furthermore: after Children’s Commissioner Annie Longfield said there should be weekly Covid-19 testing in schools to detect (or better still, prevent) outbreaks, Johnson’s schools minister Nick Gibb rejected the suggestion out-of-hand.

I expect this follows his government’s promise to provide weekly testing at care homes… which has since been withdrawn. Clearly Johnson can’t even manage a simple testing system.

But it raises an obvious question:

If Johnson cannot see that he has a “moral duty” to protect our children when they go to school, then it is our moral duty to ignore him.

    The government has a moral duty to prevent children going hungry in this country, but that’s not going to happen under this government. In fact they have made it worse. So apart from anything else, they have no right to preach about morals until they find some morality from somewhere.
