Makes me sick when I hear our pompous, arrogant clown saying that he ‘Got All The Big Calls Right!’
I don’t think he got a single call right!!
First came Brexit
Johnson changed his mind and rushed through a terrible deal just so he could become PM.
He ran a campaign that lied from beginning to end.
There is no Brexit dividend.
It is costing us a fortune – £130 billion (more than we paid to the EU in 40 years) so far plus a hit of 4% of DGP. – which is why we have not had the recovery of other countries.
It has caused many firms to go bust or move abroad.
It is strangling us in red tape.
We now have costly, time-consuming border checks, tariffs and queues.
The fantasyland wonderful foreign trade deals never happened and won’t happen.
We lost our freedom to move, work and study.
What did we get back? Higher costs, shortages, food rotting in fields, job shortages and the replacement of EU workers with workers from Africa and India.
Who has suffered? Farmers, fishermen, carers, NHS, haulage, catering, and the general public (prices shot up).
Who has benefitted? Wealthy Tories like Rees-Mogg who moved their companies abroad and made millions.
Then we have Ireland and the break-up of the UK.
If Covid hadn’t come along people might have been quicker to recognise Brexit as the disaster it is!!
The cost of duplicating services, providing border checks, lorry parks, civil servants, border inspectors and the like is enormous. For what?? (IMO – racism and arrogance).
That was a series of calls that were ALL wrong.
Then Came Covid
First, they ignored the Cygnet report that said they were unprepared for an imminent pandemic.
Then they ignored the pandemic taking off in China for four months (living in a blind Brexit euphoria).
Then, when they realised that Italy and Spain were being swamped, they panicked and dumped elderly patients out of the NHS into Care Homes – killing thousands.
They spent millions on Nightingale hospitals that were never used.
They spent billions on apps and T&T that never worked
They had an illegal VIP fast-track to give billions to Tories to produce PPE and ventilators – that did not work. (Including Hancock’s landlord).
They shut down too late.
They opened up too early.
They brought in silly schemes – like Eat Out To Help Out – that set it off again.
They were bailed out by the drug companies developing the vaccines (for which the Tories falsely claimed credit!!!)
The Ukraine War
They hid up the Brexit disaster with Covid and hid up Covid with Ukraine!
Johnson went off on his photo shoots and supplied arms.
Johnson – saviour of Western Democracy?? I don’t think so! How to make a profit out of war!!
The Cost of Power
The cost of electricity and gas has shot through the roof.
What has the Tory government done?? Fuck all!!
Have they rushed in a series of grants to insulate houses? NO!!
Have they nationalised the gas and electricity?? NO!! (France did – their energy supply went up 5% – ours 50% and another 50% to come)
Have they ploughed more into green energy – tidal barriers, solar and wind – with grants for the public??? NO!! They are still dithering.
The Global Warming Catastrophe
40 degrees is just the start. Forest fires, floods, droughts, extreme temperatures, extreme weather.
Johnson went to COP 26 and then copped out!!
Now they are talking fracking, oil exploration and even coal!!
Are they NUTS????
Petrol Price rise
The cost of petrol affects everything. The price of goods goes through the roof. Travel is expensive.
What have the Tories done?? They’ve enjoyed the extra revenue from tax on fuel!!
So where are all these big calls that Johnson and his Tory minions got right????
What we have is the Goebbels method!! Lie repeatedly and gullible people begin to believe you! That’s what Trump does!!
