I think people are becoming used to Johnson making absurd claims followed by incompetent performance.
It was the hallmark of his years as a politician and lamentable Home Secretary.
By now we know that it’s a pipedream – off the cuff bit of rubbish – just like everything else has been. Apps, PPE, Track and Trace, Brexit – all lies, smoking mirrors and dramatic hyperbole with no substance.
Put a clown in charge and don’t be surprised if you get stupidity.
