As reported on LBC Radio, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved to Intensive Care having deteriorated this afternoon.

Non political.

I have always been a Labour Man but I like Boris.
He is Funny.

I sincerely wish him well and hope he pulls through.

& this morning he was feeling much better.

Media is screwing with us.
Pretty sick really, as regardless of what you voted for, surely you don't want the worst outcome for this guy. C'mon now...

The Russian media reported it this morning! so someone was screwing with us.

Watching the BBC News it really is clear just how dangerous and serious the situation is.

Our NHS workers are putting themselves in Real danger. Exposing themselves to exposure to this Virus.
Many people Still all but ignoring keeping a safe distance from other people.

I believe the government need to BAN people jogging. Running past people Panting and Breathing Heavily.
It's ridiculous.

I really cannot see an end to this. I really cannot see a time when we will be having a beer in the pub
or enjoying a meal in our favourite restaurant.

I cannot see how Pubs, Bars and Restaurants can survive this. Anywhere where people congregate on mass.

He's got a deputy and a cabinet who can run the country in his absence. I've been looking a lot at Churchill who had a cross party inner circle during the war and had his own physical and mental health issues. BJ's of course in the best place and few people wish him ill in this situation. I was perplexed about the 'need to work' over recent days when he was clearly quite poorly.

Learning more about this virus - I really didn't know we should rest however obvious it sounds. I thought working from home was enough (if anything bosses keep us under more scrutiny when WFH)

Best wishes to Boris as well.

Best wishes to him, I hope he recovers fully

It must be a worrying time for him and his now pregnant partner, I feel for them.

I wish him well too - I hope like everyone else - that he gets through this soon. He hasnít looked well and kept going...
Just seen on Sky that they are saying there is a clap for boris tonight..apparently trending on twitter, not that I have an account to see etc..

Uncleglen-I hope very much that Boris gets well. But I hate everything he stands for, certainly do not love him, and am amazed you can blithely say "the majority of us love you." Any evidence?

He's doing what he always does, even at a time of national emergency, trolling for his cultural 'war'. Best ignored...

If he recovers, I hope it's of some use to the country, like he has increased awareness for other people's hardships, begins to understand people are different but fundamentally should be regarded equal, recognises that inflammatory language can cascade to the street and cause problems for minorities, and can change his behaviours and language to reflect that.

He probably will for a while, applaud the doctors, nurses and everyone else who pulled together. Then revert back to the same old johnson

I'm not a massive fan of Boris, but I've grown fonder of him purely on the basis of how much he gets up the noses of bien pensants types of the white metropolitan middle class. He must be doing something right.

messageRe: Prime Minister moved to Intensive Care
Posted by StraferJack April 08, 02:41PM

Getting up the noses of [insert cliched and confected homogenous bunch) VS arrogant leadership discarding advice, help and evidence from other countries which will mean more people likely to die in this country compared to neighbours?

it's a toughie for sure

messageRe: Prime Minister moved to Intensive Care
Posted by malumbu April 08, 02:45PM

A bizarre bit of logic, that is like saying I quite like Hitler as he p'd off Germany's liberal intellectual types. I doubt if BJ is that popular with some other racial groups, as well as some other sectors of society judging by his use of terms such as picanniny, letterbox and bumboy. If I'd used such terms in my work place, no matter how much I was intending to be satirical, I'd be in a lot of bother.

As for him 'deserving it', nobody deserves serious harm and that was foolish to say the least. Whether he could have prevented it by better/earlier social distancing will come out in the wash but probably no worse than the celebs and sports stars catching it at the Cheltenham races.

As for my sympathies very much with key workers/front line workers.

malumbu - not sure I've seen anyone say BJ 'deserves' what he's currently suffering from.

Unfortunately just one unknown Councillor saying it will make headlines.

also need to be careful what we retweet on twitter these days because people still seem to state untruths.

I see Quids is still raging at being being a white working class man living in a white middle class metropolitan area. That'll teach him for hanging around with the cool Twitterati kids instead of his real mates...smiling smiley

very good Alan - on my part I can only say my pc logged me out of all websites and I got confused when logging back in

Posted by malumbu April 08, 06:12PM

KidKruger, it was the article that Uncle posted about a Derbyshire Councillor - she said he deserved to die.

My earlier post was mainly banter but just shocked by Laura Kuenssberg on the Beeb, "Nearly a 1000 people died over the last 24 hours, but hey ho good news the Prime Minister is recovering". How insensitive.

I think the media played Charie Boy and Covid-19 well, The heir to the throne that is. It was modestly reported. I'll let Twitter and hopefully some complaints to the BBC make my point further.

Will two terms as London mayor and a general Election landslide do?
and Quids I misread your 'bien pensants' as 'bien peasants'....certainly aspiring peasants!

Oh behave Uncleglen. Boris did not get a majority of votes cast at the general election. A third of the electorate did not vote at all. Of 49 million eligible votes, he got 13,491,087. That's about 25% of eligible voters. Stop embarrassing yourself with ridiculous claims. It is only the nuances of our FPTP electoral system that enables a party to get a majority of seats with less than 50% of the votes cast. Things would look rather different if we had PR. A coalition would have easily kept the Tories out of government.
