Updated with the latest figures as at 20:40 on 28th April 2020
Boris Johnson has been busy spinning his Tory government’s #Coronavirus response as a “success”.
Meanwhile, here are the latest actual figures:
The UK has 1% of world population and 10.1% of global #coronavirus deaths.
1% of 7.6 billion = 76 million people.
10.1% of 214,392 = 21,678 deaths.
Whereas China has 18.9% of world population and 2.2% of #coronavirus deaths.
18.9% of 7.6 billion = 1.435 billion people.
2.2% of 214,392 = 4,637 deaths.
It’s plain to see that these figures are ABSOLUTELY CATASTROPHIC, Boris Johnson is busy lying through his teeth and his Tory party is to blame.
Stop clapping for him now. He needs to resign immediately.
Can you imagine if Jeremy Corbyn had won the election and achieved a similar “success” rate? The BBC, Channel Four, ITV and all the usual Tory suspects in the mainstream media would have been calling for his head many, many weeks ago.
And do you think the flag-waving Tory lackeys in the media would have been encouraging us to clap for Corbyn if he’d been laid out with #Covid_19? NOT A CHANCE. They’d have been secretly hoping he’d pop his clogs so Diane Abbott could step into the breach to be bullied and gaslighted.
So instead of putting them through intense scrutiny, the media are once again giving Johnson an easy ride, allowing him to trot out his lies and fill their pages with utter bollocks.
They’ve also all fallen dutifully silent as thousands of UNCOUNTED, vulnerable elderly people in care and nursing homes die, and NHS workers risk their lives with no PPE or are forced into making their own masks or re-using out of date gear.
