Desperately clinging on to memories of Scotland’s trauma in the early days of the outbreak and using that to lie every day in an effort to cover the blood on his hands, a Prime Minister is content with a 634 to 1 disadvantage in death.

I know it’s ‘only’ 63.4 to 1 when you take England’s 10 times larger population into account but that is not done in comparisons with the USA or Brazil and, in the context of mass deaths, does the per capita calculation make things OK?
