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:

Guess who had no idea what the current rules actually are? Got it in one! “Boris Johnson apologises for 'misspeaking' about new rules” #borishasfailedtheukhttps://t.co/H0Ry1zXKSJ pic.twitter.com/T83iBJwRiF

Am gobsmacked. Our lying racist glove puppet PM @BorisJohnson, used the word "Apologies".
However, he "misspoke" again by not admitting that he is a fucking idiot and gave out wrong information.

Of course, the discussion soon digressed to Johnson’s other failures:
why did we go into a nationwide lockdown with 967 cases and 74 deaths whilst today we’ve had over 7000 cases and 71 deaths and all we have is a bedtime #borishasfailedtheuk

The only good thing to come out of the shit storm we’re in is that Boris Johnson always wanted to be remembered as a good laugh… a jovial character… a smart bloke with a sense of humour…. that’s gone… he’ll always be a remembered as a complete cunt. #borishasfailedtheuk

#borishasfailedtheuk is trending
I did try to warn you that he was shit citing my experience of him as London Mayor
But people were all like ‘oooh you lefty liberal’ bla bla bla
I said he was shit
And he is
In conclusion – I was right as were so many other people

Malevolent, deeply unimpressive and a total bore !! #borishasfailedtheuk continues to outdo himself day after day without fail a laughing stock that is at his happiest lapping up to his reactionary sidekick #cummings and the #ERG https://t.co/9sF9pMrhPN

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:
If you voted for Boris and now sit open mouthed at his inability to govern ….you should smack yourself in the face with a brick. #borishasfailedtheuk

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.
