Yes it is. It's full on "if my Auntie had b*llocks" levels of b*llocks.
Boris Johnson has easily
been the worst PM in living memory. He makes Gordon Brown look Churchillian. There is no way anyone can state categorically that a.n.other - including Corbyn - would definitely
have been worst.
Again, you have to look at the potential.
I don't disagree on how bad Boris has been. But in general most of his failings have been buffoonery and hypocrisy.
The only serious issue I can throw is his handling and dithering over lockdowns, which may well have caused many extra fatalities. However given Corbyn would have been equally in the dark about how to deal with pandemics (we will hope he doesn't think like his brother) and would have had the same scientists advising him, we have no idea if he would have done any better.
Other than that Boris generally tries not to rock the boat, because he is a populist and a patriot.
Where would we now be with Corbyn and Europe? f*** knows, he certainly didn't.
But more seriously we now have a huge Russian issue on the horizon. As much as Boris is an idiot, I don't think he will do anything other than stick to the NATO rulebook and listen to his military chiefs.
Would you be more confident with the Salisbury denier now in charge?
As I said, two types of dangerous in charge. But different kinds of dangerous.
