The evidence at the select hearing meeting was damning.

I published an article on the 29th of March titled: “ The poorest in Society are not worth saving”. In it, I described in some detail, the failings of the Johnson government in taking quick decisive steps in dealing with the spread of the dreaded virus, which led to 130,000 people dying in the United Kingdom.

In another article, titled: “ The great revelation of the pandemic: Catastrophic Leadership, I wrote about the disastrous leadership that we have seen in the public and private sector, with various national leaders displaying extraordinarily high levels of incompetence, at a time when people needed clear decisive leadership.

On Wednesday, at the portcullis house, close to the houses of parliament, Dominic Cummings, the former chief adviser to the Boris Johnson, gave evidence into the government’s handling of the Corona virus, which is damning of Britain’s political leaders.

Here are the highlights:

1.Boris Johnson was completely reluctant to announce the shut down of the country, because he thought that virus may not be as bad as everyone speculated. The prime minster was prepared to back herd immunity and have himself injected with the flu, live on television.

2.Described Boris Johnson as unfit to be prime minister. Dominic Cummings blames the state of British politics for the caliber of players, emerging as leaders of their parties.

3.There was no lockdown plan for the entirety of the United Kingdom, during the period of the spread of the virus.

4.The levels of ignorance, in coming to grips with the contagiousness of the virus, at the highest echelons of government, was beyond staggering.

5. Blamed Matt Hancock, the secretary for health, for repeatedly lying and putting politics ahead of getting to grips with dealing with the crises.

6. Confusion at the cabinet office, as to whether to direct their attention to the bombing campaign of Iraq or on the rising cases of Covid patients.

7. Took responsibility for his share of the mess and apologized for the titanic mistakes made which led to highest deaths per population in Europe.

Now that Dominic Cummings’ evidence has confirmed what we have always thought; Alexander Boris De Pfeffel Johnson is thoroughly unfit to premier. One can only hope that the decision to topple him comes sooner than later.

Thanks very much for reading.
