Johnson lies again: he said ‘huge numbers’ were returning to work to make a news headline

Contempt: every time Boris Johnson lies on the TV news, he is signalling the scorn in which he holds every ordinary citizen of the United Kingdom.

How does Boris know ‘huge numbers’ of people are returning to their workplaces and offices? He doesn’t.

But that’s what he said at a cabinet meeting yesterday (Tuesday) – and the only reason This Writer can find for it is that he wanted to get some optimistic words on the TV news so badly that he made them up.

It worked, too. Here‘s the BBC:

Mr Johnson was addressing ministerial colleagues at the start of the first Cabinet meeting since the Parliamentary summer break.

He said people were going back to the office “in huge numbers” and this ‘incredible country” was getting back on its feet.

Here’s the more logical view, courtesy of the Mirror:

Boris Johnson has claimed that people are “returning to the office across the country in huge numbers” – but isn’t able to give us any proof.

Mr Johnson made the unverified claim as his Cabinet met before Parliament was due to return on Tuesday afternoon following the summer recess.

But pressed on the details of this mass return to office blocks, Downing Street was unable to provide any evidence.

As far as Johnson is concerned, he has succeeded: job done.

Because there are plenty of Tory adherents up and down the UK who will swallow everything this serial liar feeds them.

    The best (worst) lies are the ones you tell, and believe, yourself. Even if you only believe in the moment in the telling….Boris is severely delusional and dysfunctional. And very needy. That’s what makes him dangerous.

      I got a 403 ‘Forbidden’ error when trying to access this page but the 14 elements of fascism are fairly well publicised and readers are invited to look them up.
