This is how utterly pathetic our politics is here…..
“Captain Hindsight Sniping from the Sidelines…..” – this is how Boris described Keir Starmer, the British Labour Opposition Party Leader who has to invent some reason every week to castigate the PM every week in Prime Minister’s Question Time.
In March last year, 2020, James Dyson, of Vaccuum Cleaner fame, offered to design and manufacture Ventilators for intubating covid sufferers at a time when we had a massive shortage of ventilators. The problem was, Dyson would have to bring workers back to the UK from the Far East to work on these ventilators which would have put these workers at a tax disadvantage. Dyson texted his friend, Boris, to ask him if he could do something about the tax penalties these workers would have to pay and Boris said: “I’ll Fix It“! Dyson eventually invested £20m of his own money in the project before the Government decided to place orders for the equipment elsewhere.
Bear in mind we were in a mad panic here at the time. We had no idea how to treat covid other than to intubate for the most seriously effected. What would YOU have done Mr Keir Starmer?
Boris did not apologise, nor should he.
Let’s Tour England !
