MPs’ Covid report highlights thousands of avoidable deaths. Families of the dead must demand justice

Doing a runner: many of us may have one or two metaphorical skeletons in our closet; Boris Johnson has fled the UK with the dead of Covid-19 pursuing him.

Now we know why Boris Johnson went on his holibobs so hastily. Tony (below) is being sarcastic:

But Samuel Miller is right:

The Covid Report by MPs is damning. It should lead to prosecutions of leading government ministers – including Johnson – for Corporate Manslaughter (at the very least).

It won’t, but it should.

Sadly, it seems the most we’ll get from the authorities is the long-promised public inquiry.

And when will that be?

On the other hand, we could have an avalanche of civil lawsuits!

Bring ’em on. I hope people group together to make the litigation more easily-affordable. The cases could be huge and the evidence damning.

And Johnson?

He’s staying out of the way until the fuss dies down because he knows if he shows his face around the UK, he’ll face demands for his resignation – from all sides:

You can read the report by the Commons Health and Social Care, and Science and Technology committees, here. And there are reports on the report here, here, here and here, and pretty much everywhere you look right now.

Among the report’s findings are:

Boris Johnson could have saved many thousands of people by taking the UK into lockdown earlier.

The government denies it:

Instead, Johnson caused a national disaster by pursuing a policy of herd immunity and mass infection:

Thousands of care home residents died because government ministers never bothered to think about their welfare in a serious way.

The Covid response was racist: white people had better PPE and other equipment than those from ethnic minorities.


The government still doesn’t care. It put up a minister to do the morning media round who had not even bothered to read the Covid-19 report before being asked to comment on it. The results were as you might expect:

Think that’s bad? Another minister blamed the high death toll on obesity rather than allow the government to accept any responsibility:

The excuses are beyond belief. Former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt turned up, to say there was good amongst the bad:

They’re saying nobody publicly questioned the failure to lockdown soon enough (that led to 20,000 deaths). We don’t accept that:

They’re saying nobody warned them about the dangers of asymptomatic transmission:

And they all say they followed the scientific advice:

They say any criticisms are only made with the benefit of hindsight:

Oh, and of course they all did their best:

Let’s have another perspective:

The media seem to be trying to help the government evade responsibility:

And then we have someone who says he isn’t forgiving the government, despite having given it a free pass for the last 20 months:

Quick reminders:

Here’s some opposition. Ah, but the UK rejected him in favour of Boris Johnson in the 2019 election – going for the pandemic megadeath option. And then he resigned as Labour leader and the party voted in the absolute melt you saw in the video above…

People are coming to the end of their collective tether:

Oh, and the scandal is still going on:

I notice that Matt Hancock, who was Health Secretary throughout most of the worst mistakes of the Covid crisis, has been appointed UN special envoy to help Covid recovery in Africa. So he’s not likely to be in the UK for the foreseeable future.

Also, in the light of the sex scandal that triggered his ejection from the Cabinet, jokes about Hancock’s new missionary position are likely to proliferate.

So both Johnson and Hancock are away for the duration, and a proper inquiry is about as far away temporally as they are physically.

That brings us back to the possibility of litigation against the government for causing tens of thousands – if not more than 100,000 – preventable deaths.

This could really bring the UK back together – against the government that has failed us all so badly.

So get together, people – in your communities, with the care homes where many of your relatives and friends died, online – wherever you can build the strongest possible case against the inept-but-unaccountable fools who caused those deaths… and take your shot. It could be the most important thing any of us do.

    So Bozo runs off on holibobs hiding as usual for him! Just when a damming whitewashed report was published. What a coincidence….!

    A sodding public inquiry? ….NOW and corporate manslaughter charges if there was any justice left in this plague-infested country thanks to him!

    Good I hope for a flood of civil lawsuits. The fat lazy incompetent coward can pay for his own defence as well…

    Bozo’s government grossly mishandled the COVID-19 pandemic. That fact It’s indisputable! But lets make sure to nail every single scummy hand involved in these deaths, no stone unturned!
