A YouGov survey yesterday gave the Tories a 13 point lead. Amazing the power in a dose of AstraZeneca or Pfizer vaccination fluid. These drugs seem to have been manufactured with an extra ingredient that leaves those vaccinated with significant memory loss.
How can so many have forgotten that this misgovernment from which we suffer was responsible in the first place for our pandemic?
Their leader and his lackeys decided to put the power of the market and the pursuit of profit before the lives of people. Johnson and Co chose to do what Jacinda Ardern, the PM in New Zealand. called 'the unthinkable'. They pursued a policy of herd immunity and some leading scientists colluded with them. As a result, we soon suffered one of the three worst per capita death rates from COVID-19 in the world - and that terrible indictment of this apology of a government continues. We have had approaching 150,000 fatalities from the virus; in New Zealand, the figure is less than 30.

How can so many have forgotten that we are experiencing the deepest recession of any G7 nation? (I should express my gratitude at this point to Mirror Politics who this morning inspired this post and helped frame its structure.)
How can so many have forgotten that the arrival of new mutations in the COVID-19 virus hasbeen fast-tracked by the failure of these incompetents in ministerial office to close international borders earlier?
How can so many have forgotten that we still do not have an adequate Test, Track and Trace programme in place, despite the billions of pounds that have been minted and passed into the pockets of chums of the ruling elite so that inexperienced and incompetent private enterprise could demonstrate its failings. The stench of cronyism over COVID contracts reeks.
How can so many have forgotten the Durham road trips of Dominic Cummings? He was the man behind the leader's misdeeds for nearly half a year and may still be an influence behind the scenes.
How can so many have forgotten the unbelievable incompetence of the minister of state at Education, Gavin Williamson? The exams fiasco of the summer of 2020 would have led to the resignation of any education minister of any government in the past - but this PM protects his lackeys under the smokescreen provided by the pandemic.

How can so many have forgotten that the minister of state at the Home Office, Priti Patel, has a track record of bullying those who have the misfortune to find they now have her as their boss? Her behaviour has just cost the taxpayer around a third of a million pounds - the settlement figure agreed by one of our most respected senior civil servants who felt compelled to resign rather than put up with her misuse of power anymore.

How can so many have forgotten that the 'oven-ready' deal of the century that Johnson created to get Brexit done and justify his election as leader of the Tory party has been unravelling ever since? Even as I write today, I am reading that Irish Unionist paramilitaries have renounced the Good Friday Agreement in response to the unilateral and illegal actions of the British government. The leader of this Tory omnishambles of a government has a track record of lying to secure his own advantage or salvation. He is untrustworthy.
DO NOT FORGET WHEN ANSWERING THESE QUESTIONS THAT THIS COUNTRY DOES NOT YET HAVE AN OPPOSITION PARTY WORTHY OF THE NAME.
