One more day and I will call this a lie.
On the fifth day, I will send a condolence card.

There was a news story locally about a guy they took off the vent after a month. He's got a long rehab ahead of him, and hopefully this isn't the rise before the fall, but yeah, it could be awhile.

Much like feeling compassion and empathy for others, it is a skill which is beyond his clutches.

Given how good he is at manipulating the press I'm seriously wondering how much of this is bullcrap.  We already know he's not on a ventilator and is just getting oxygen.

The inbreds are worked up enough, and already threatening violence

Do not wish for illness or death to befall this clown, or Trump*, or any of the wingnut cult figures.
It would trigger events worse than anything that has transpired so far.
Also, it's bad karma.

Actually doubtful. The official response of the UK government was basically "how nice." They said "we have competent doctors, thank you, we'll let them treat the PM."

I'm pretty sure they're not lying about him being "doing well" for a Covid-19 patient who needed hospital support. A large number of patients do just that. And yes, he went into ICU but it's the PM. You think they'd leave him in a ward bed? So, we're at two outcomes here.

1) He continues to improve and leaves the hospital.
2) He has that sudden "crash" (a cytokine storm) that happens to some patients and ends up in real trouble.

We will see. All the best to him, I don't want him dead, I just want him out of politics.

This is such a load of crap.

"Oh, the PM is just going to the hospital out of an abundance of caution..."

"Oh, the PM is just going into the ICU out of an abundance of caution..."

"Oh, the PM has spent three days in the ICU out of an abundance of caution but it's really not that serious..."

If he wasn't hooked up to a ventilator they'd release a picture showing that.

He's an extremely important person, so yeah ICU, a secured area, with a 1:1 nurse is where they are going to put him.

He got admitted then moved to ICU.  I'd expect that a VIP get moved to a VIP wing right off the bat.

I too wonder if they are spinning how sick he is. He is the PM if he was sitting up in bed wouldn't he be sending a tweet or something like that to say hey I am sick but doing better.

Karma doesn't exist, and I'll wish all the harm I want on evil people.

If "the inbreds" wail and gnash because I wish harm on evil people, then they shouldn't have wished harm on a good person like Obama.

My wishing for Trump's demise is because I don't want evil people in charge of my country. They wished harm on Obama because he was blah.

I honestly feel really sorry for you. No snark at all. I hope your life gets better where you can get past what ever is troubling you.

Trump has already caused the deaths of 1000's.  It is HE that is deserved of the wrath of Karma.
So to expect Karma to get off its ass and do its job shouldn't be too much to ask.

Unlikely. In the British political system showing a weakness is not something you want to do. The Tory party turned on Margaret Thatcher and kicked her out in a few days, and she'd won them three elections in a row.
Boris appears to be in a strong position, but it wouldn't be impossible for the party to tun and demand a new leader, especially if he's going to be out of action for a couple of months.

What has come out is that, unlike the POTUS who is followed around by his own medical team it appears the UK PM just checks into a NHS hospital along with everyone else. In is week or so of isolation he was totally alone, no medical staff at all. His meals were left on a tray outside his door and when he finally spoke to his doctor by facetime he was told to go to hospital ASAP. Had he had medical care/supervision from day one he might have recovered as quickly as many others have done with proper rest and care, instead of trying to ignore it and carry on working.

Exactly. The Tories are incredibly effective at getting rid of leaders that have lost favour - it's what keeps them from becoming a rambling mob of incompetent boobs. Just look at how swiftly they dealt with Theresa May; strong and stable for years then boom, suddenly and ruthlessly dispatched from office almost from nowhere.
