Boris Johnson: We took our eye off the ball on Indian variant deaths

The modified headline, we’ve provide for the BBC report above, seems fair in the light of this:

Here is the effect of the delay, the failure to put India on the red list sooner:

Given the much lower vaccination rates in these communities, deaths will follow.

  1. Even when he knew the Indian variant was already in the UK, Johnson took days to out India on the red list. Let’s hope it doesn’t become worse, or is it all about money, again for the English government.
    Scotland is at the mercy of the incompetent English government, as usual. It’s really sickening.

    1. It’s precisely as he behaved over the Kent variant, no Union flag on it but I can assure you that across Europe it is known as the English variant.
      We should brace for the worst, Johnson et al will fumble it again…

  2. The Tories are ideologically hostile to the “precautionary principle”, which, IMHO, was a significant contributing factor in their slow and inept response to early warnings about covid-19, as well as their determination to leave the EU.

  3. Of course it’s about money – it’s the TORIES !

    Remember when Blair’s mob came up with that phrase ” A good day to bury bad news ” , well the Tories have used the pandemic as ” a good day to make money ! ”

    By the time an enquiry gets round to ( maybe – but unlikely ) laying the blame at their door , they will have cried themselves all the way to the ( offshore ) bank !
