If its a legitimate virus, the stonks have a way of shutting it down.

It's not like this whole covid thing was unknown then.  At that point people were either going to do things to protect themselves or they weren't.

It's not like some guy was sitting around thinkin, I would go over to Jimmy's without my mask and get plastered with his neighbors (repeat x several thousand).....but then Boris said I shouldn't!

I think the fact that Johnson wanted the Chief Medical Officer to inject him on live TV with Covid, a respiratory virus, tells us everything we need to know about this buffoon.

Much like how Trump was a speedrun of Richard Nixon, Johnson appears to be trying to beat Thatcher's time.

Boris Johnson also wanted the Coronavirus to kill the poor and infirm of the United Kingdom, and delayed government response to the virus until he contracted it. Shows how much England never should have trusted a person who was born American to be the Prime Minister.

They're much like the GQP morons who last year suggested we let grandparents die to keep the economy open.

No regard for human life at all.

So, just like the drooling non-entity and his spawn.

Nice.

"Johnson had wanted to let Covid "wash through the country" rather than destroy the economy, Mr Cummings said."

Right, because a pandemic raging through your country is just so great for business.

I read today that the recession is over here in the USA. So, apparently it's fine for the stock market, and, really, does anything else matter? We worship profit as devoutly as any god in the historical record. This all makes sense in context.

Freedom Day is/was today, July 19. Much of the country is livid about abandoning the immunocompromised and the children.

B-but corporations aren't making as much money as they can! Plus, we accidentally reminded workers that their labor is essential, even in "unskilled" professions, so they're getting ideas about being treated like humans instead of as disposable automatons!

Sounds insane?  That's clearly Biden's plan for Delta.  I have no clue how many parents of Under 12s exist, but Mr. Biden won't be getting their vote next election.

"Yes, your children are permanently disabled, but there were protocols to follow.  And what of the billionaires and their yachts?  Would you just have let them sit in drydock until we approved boosters?  Listen, those kids are all alive.  What more could you want?"

Sadly, that seems like Biden's plan, now. All he wants to do is get people away from hospitals nowso that their diabilitie can go to lifelong appointment schedules at hospitals later.

Think of the stonks in the embalming and casket sectors, usually not growth industries. Plus the freed up pensions health care and savings capital. This virus is a windfall.

Agreed my also American friend, this Biden does nothing to help. Sending vaccination squads door to door to cover last mile of vaccine hesitancy he does nothing to for care  is like the flailing of Nazis against Russian winter. Or so I am told. Vaccinating the rest of country does nothing to protect children under 12 who will be upon breathed by the rest of country.

And they themselves are usually quite old as well.

So they're really banking on the doctors and crazy medical procedures not available to the public to save their asses if they get infected. Grandpa gets infected though, oh well too bad little Timmy.

And this asshole will still get millions of votes in the next election.
