#BorisHasFailedTheUK is trending because Johnson can’t even announce his own rules properly

Boris Johnson might have surrounded himself with idiots but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s the biggest fool of the lot.

In an announcement on tighter Covid-19 restrictions in northeast England, he couldn’t even get his own facts straight:

Mr Johnson was asked to clarify the rules after a junior minister was unable to do so.

When asked if people in the North East could still meet people from other households outside, such as in a pub garden, Mr Johnson said people should follow local guidance and urged them to use their common sense.

He went on to talk about the separate rule of six.

“In the North East and other areas where extra tight measures have been brought in, you should follow the guidance of local authorities – but it’s six in a home, six in hospitality but, as I understand it, not six outside,” he said.

On Twitter, Mr Johnson later apologised and clarified that the new law meant those in the North East “cannot meet people from different households in social settings indoors, including in pubs, restaurants and your home”.

“You should also avoid socialising with other households outside,” he added.

The rebukes were swift:

Of course, the discussion soon digressed to Johnson’s other failures:

Ultimately, the critics pointed out that ultimate responsibility for the UK’s plight lies not with the fool in charge but with the fools who put him there:

They never do, sadly.

It’s a phenomenon called “shy Toryism”.

They hide the fact that they voted for Johnson and the Tories – because they are ashamed of it. And then they do it again next time.
