Boris Johnson Suggested Injecting Himself With COVID On Live TV, Says Ex-Adviser

We all know that Boris Johnson only does big, galaxy-brain ideas, and apparently one of those was suggesting he inject himself with COVID-19 live on TV in order to calm public fears, according to his ex-aide.

The claim – by Lord Lister – came in a witness statement to the Covid inquiry. He said Boris “suggested to senior civil servants and advisers that he wanted to be injected with Covid-19 on television to demonstrate to the public that it did not pose a threat”.

It was “at a time when Covid was not seen as being the serious disease it subsequently became”, he added.

Of course, there’s plenty of people who would say that this wouldn’t have been a bad idea at all, although I guess he essentially ended up doing the same thing by walking around that hospital and shaking everyone’s hands at the height of the pandemic. Didn’t he almost die of Covid in the end? Imagine if that had happened if he actually chose to willingly inject himself with Covid on TV? The UK would have been a universal laughing stock for all eternity.

Aside from that, Lord Lister also confirmed during the Covid inquiry that Boris had said letting “the bodies pile high” was preferable to another lockdown. The remark was made in September 2020, and when it was first reported in April 2021, Boris said it was “total rubbish.” Is Lord Lister calling Boris a liar?!

On Tuesday, the Covid inquiry was also shown messages in which the head of the civil service, Simon Case, said of his Downing Street colleagues: “These people are so mad… they are just so madly self-defeating. I’ve never seen a bunch of people less well-equipped to run the country.”

What a nightmare for Boris. It’s actually pretty amazing that the Tories keep being voted in over and over again, no matter what they do. Are we just suckers for car crash entertainment?
