UK's Boris Johnson's Coronavirus plan: "The UK should just take it on the chin."

Johnson--for all appearances the result of a telepod accident involving Donald Trump and Rob Ford--has decided that Britons should just lie back and enjoy it. Welcome their disease overlords. Surrender peacefully. Let it happen. Let it just wash over them.

5. From Churchill to Chinless

“One ought never to turn one’s back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!”

6. Striking a balance he says?

In all corners of epidemiology there is no such phrase.

Draconian measures in China have halted the logarithmic growth. No other country can demonstrate such an effective response.

I live in the U.K. now. This idiot scares the living (not yet infected) shit out of me.

I should travel to Britain just to gawk at the train wreck that is Boris Johnson. Vote of no confidence, anyone?

9. As I said back when this asshole took office, good luck, UK.

You stuck yourselves with your own Donald Trump. Even looks like him. It's beyond me why anyone would believe that shitsacks like this assclown and our syphilitic, orange wankmaggot are in any way capable of heading a country, let alone running it properly.

12. Save the markets, go about your daily business, sacrifice yourself for the good of the economy

I guess the following is old school....


"We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender."

Churchill

20. Misleading edit - he was asked about the government strategy of 'delay'

and he was explaining that 'some' thought we should just 'take it on the chin' in one go, but that is not what he is doing, on scientific advice. Full interview - the question is asked at 6:00:



"I think it would be better if we take all the measures that we can now just to stop the peak of the disease being as difficult for the NHS as it might be"

If you want to criticise the Tories, it should be about the number of nurses etc. in the NHS going into this, which the interviewers move on to.

Those poor Brits and the things they ask their faces to do...
