The Office of National Statistics has just announced that 2% of the population is now infected with coronavirus – one in 50 of us, well over a million people.

Thanks to Boris Johnson, Britain has found a new role on the global stage – as a clown. We are now the world’s leading supplier of pratfalls, lunacy and lethal incompetence.
