Our Prime Minister has behaved poorly towards women. And has made some dreadful comments about us. 🧵 👇🏼
In ‘96, while he was a journalist for the Telegraph, Johnson wrote a piece reviewing “the hot totty" of women at a conference. His words:
"The unanimous opinion is that what has been called the 'Tottymeter' reading is higher than at any Labour Party conference in living memory”
He also notoriously pinned a Pirelli calendar to his desk, which featured nude photography, even tho female colleagues complained.
I am full of rage. I can’t bear the mistakes this nasty, incompetent government keeps making.
It chose not to fight the virus, but to try and live with it. It’s no surprise therefore that the mutation almost certainly happened on these shores not elsewhere.
The government has spent the year pandering to its libertarian flank, themselves unrepresentative of the vast majority of Brits who favoured lockdown.
They put up the false binary of choosing between lives and livelihoods. And ultimately failed us on both.
I am so angry. It didn’t have to be like this. We are an island. We should’ve locked down hard, and fast.
We should’ve implemented testing sooner and better. And secured our borders with proper testing at airports and ports, followed by quarantining and retesting.
The popular vote rejected Brexit last year. More people voted for anti Brexit parties than pro, but our fptp voting system bastardises electoral outcomes meaning election outcomes are a poor reflection of what voters actually want. Johnson and Farage exploited that.
There are currently 1,344,356 known cases of #covid19 in the UK, and 51,766 people have died.
The UK is the first country in Europe to pass the 50,000 milestone, and only the fifth country in the world to do so after the United States, Brazil, India and Mexico.
Our population is much smaller than those countries and according to John Hopkins University, we have the 4th worst per capita deaths from covid in the world
So there can be no mistaking that out government has failed Britain badly.
It has no plan beyond lurching from lockdown to a tier system that has already proven unsuccessful. The vaccine escape route is at least a year off.
