Boris Johnson maskless row – Raab tries to defend him on TV… hopelessly

Against all advice: Boris Johnson is pictured wandering, maskless, through a Northumbrian Hospital whose administrators demand that everybody – without exception – must wear a face covering while on the premises. The message is clear: he thinks the rules do not apply to him.

Why do Tories do this? Is it just so they can have a headline somewhere saying, “The Justice Secretary said he understood the Prime Minister followed all the advice he was given”?

Saying this is what you understand is not the same as saying this is the fact, of course.

And it seems clear that it was not the fact in the case of Boris Johnson’s visit to a Northumbrian Hospital on Monday (November 8).

The Northumbria NHS website states clearly that visitors “must wear a face-covering at all times”, as Peter Stefanovic states, below.

Yet Raab put up the pretence, on Good Morning Britain:

They must know why can all see through this transparent fakery.

Or are they banking on the gullibility of the British public?

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
