The evidence given by Dominic Cummings to a committee of MPs regarding the response to the Covid virus, basically told us what we already knew: the Government made a complete mess of it leading to tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths.

While other countries were going into lockdown, Boris was telling the public that everything will be ok as long as we remember to wash our hands. While other countries were closing their borders, Boris sent aeroplanes to several countries around the world to bring back people infected with the virus, thus ensuring Covid spread across the UK.

The Government was too slow to enter the first lockdown and came out of it too early.

Similarly, the Government delayed entering a second lockdown with Boris preferring to ridicule Keir Starmer for suggesting a ‘flash’ lockdown to get on top of the rising numbers of infection, only to do exactly as Sir Keir said several weeks too late. One of numerous U-turns.

At least the population of the USA had enough sense to see how badly Donald Trump had overseen the Covid pandemic there and replaced him.

I am still baffled as to why the UK population have failed to see how inadequate Boris and his party have been during the pandemic.
