Donald Trump / Boris Johnson

We only need to identify 2 more horsemen and I think we can wrap this up...

All these countries looking to do a second lockdown because of a small fraction of new cases compared to what is going on the U.S. every day.

Nevermind the bollocks,

Here's the coronavirus.

I like how Spain advising travelers for weeks that non-essential travel is a bad idea and a bunch of British morons being too farking stupid to take the warnings and getting surprised by the final-warning for exit quarantine starting becomes "Spain gives only five hours notice" for the Express.

British journalism, everybody.

I'm not gonna defend Boris' or the UK government's Covid response as particularly stellar, but there is still a world of difference between that and what's happening in America. Indeed it's either going to be us or China that probably has the first working vaccine, and we've already pre-ordered a lot of it.

Two stupid decisions cost the UK quite heavily. Not even bothering to put in checks at airports, and being far too lax about keeping care homes Covid secure, the latter of which is a main reason why our death toll is high.

Now count the stupid decisions made by Trump and/or Congress. I'll wait, but you might be counting a long time.

the UK isn't exactly a stellar exemplar, but compare the pair on how they're currently managing:

Delaying lockdown by a week caused tens of thousands of deaths. So that probably warrants a mention too

There's a whole new raft of shiat coming about care homes, and how the NHS were releasing untested patients to care homes, even pressuring the homes to take the patients.  If true, that's a major f*ck up and somebody needs to hang for it.

Just read on the BBC that Boris is now consistently lying about child poverty numbers, and has been doing so since December.  Now that's not big news in and of itself, he's a scumbag tory, of course he lies, but my concern is that it's taken 8 months to call him out on it.  What else is he lying about?  The lack of push-back teaches power what it can get away with, and that's a very slippery slope.

Was there an article on that page? All I could see clearly were ads, ads, ads, and more ads! Still not behind a paywall, so I guess it's fine

Congratulations, Appalachia In The Atlantic. You managed to find a "leader" who is minutely less awful than Donald Trump.
Are you proud?

Only if the National Enquirer is "American journalism, everybody."

They're about the same level of "news" with about the same level of conservative ooga booga - and they serve the same niche.

Also having no way to enforce quarantine for travellers, the track and trace system being three months too late and still rubbish, and the app clusterfark.

Bolsonaro is the obvious choice for #3, but it took me a minute to think of #4.

Then all of a sudden I remembered Rodrigo "My only sin is the extrajudicial killings" Duterte.

Truly, who here can deny any of your statements?
Now.
Who are the other two horsemen we will associate with the apocalypse?

"Autonomous Zone", the term the media used, is literally synonymous with "anarchy".

Not to worry - when the UK crashes out of the EU without any agreement, and there's massive shortages of food and medicine, there will finally be a vote of no confidence....
