Keep fighting Boris!

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Happy to see that headline.

Never voted Tory in my life when I lived in the UK, and never would. They're just not my team. But what I want to see defeated in the next UK General Election is a happy and a healthy Boris Johnson, in a coronavirus-free election rout. Boris would just bounce back and become a reality TV star or something anyway - like that guy across the Pond, only in reverse, and much more entertaining.

I don’t agree with his policies and find his character buffoonish, but I wouldn’t wish CoVid on anyone. It’s good news that he’s out of intensive care and hopefully on the mend.

Like BigYen, I look forward to seeing a happy, healthy Bozo get a right royal rollicking at the next General Election.

O daiji ni, Boris.

That’s his aim. I’m sure he’ll ruffle his hair up for the cameras when he hopefully leaves hospital soon.

Congratulations to the recovery. Now he has had it and does not need to worry about it any more.

Certainly a collective sigh of relief can be detected across UK of Boris Johnson recovery.

The prospect of Dominic Raab continued deputizing on Johnson's behalf is frankly alarming. Raab really does at the very least appear to be clueless and out of his depth.

Really? I am not following UK details. Why do people think that? (Or do you mean only the remainers and mainstream media?)

I hope he's feeling better. This virus sounds horrendous if you end up at the point of not being able to breath properly.

Now he has had it and does not need to worry about it any more.

Yeah? Maybe you should leave that prediction to the scientists:

A growing number of discharged coronavirus patients in China and elsewhere are testing positive after recovering, sometimes weeks after being allowed to leave the hospital

It would be really scary, if people could get re-infected and have the same health problems again, but the link that you posted does not say that.

Fundamentally it agrees that in principle once people had Corona they have antibodies and are OK.

Yeah, what it says is that people test positive after recovering, which would mean that you were incorrect when you say he has had it and does not need to worry about it any more. If he doesn't care about potentially infecting other people, he doesn't need to worry about it anymore. That would make him a pretty despicable human being though.

There have been cases of infected people recovering and then positive in another test.

WilliB, I have been following the press briefings.

I do understand and appreciate that Dominic Raab has/had little time to fully adjust to the huge challenge that formulating a exit policy demands.

Also the growing concern,in some media circles decending into near panic that June, latest July, will require Government ultimately to make difficult choices/ decisions that will put the economic crisis and weight up the need to abandon the lockdown regardless of the human cost.

These "so called" expert advisers simply cannot agree and have spent the past weeks briefings, pumping out conflicting data, advice, and strategies.

Dominic Raab, has subsequently been stonewalling any question or mention of an exit strategy.

This has led to a leadership team riven with indecision and factions within cabinet formulating there own agenda.

Boris Johnson's recovery is paramount to be clarity to steer UK through what is becoming a increasingly destabilizing threat to public order.
