Adjusted figures reveal that NO deaths were caused by Coronavirus based on a new metric that states "A SARS-Cov-2 death is confirmed if the deceased tested positive prior to January 2019".

Bloody Kuenssberg - this is supposed to be an interview, but for the last few minutes of it she just lets him monologue a party political broadcast without challenging anything he says: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-politics-53532809/in-full-laura-kuenssberg-speaks-to-boris-johnson

Trolling by Laura "Blue shoes, pale legs" Kuenssberg. She's essentially sign-posting to Boris "fuck me later in my Tory-wear". Boris plotting his EXIT strategy very well (for plebs). "yeh, we made some mistakes, but look, we'll be out of this soon and return to gang raping you all by mid-2021, have no fear".

Horrible moment where he said, "We followed the science" and Kuenssberg gave him his get out of jail card with, "Maybe the scientists were wrong."
"Yes, yes, that's it. Thanks, Laura, the scientists were wrong "

Absolutely indefensible to let him get away with claiming to have followed the scientific advice at every step of the way, when the actual scientists giving that advice have since stated that was absolutely not the case.

State of that final paragraph:

Critics of Brexit like to say that it will leave the U.K. as a small country of minor import. Maybe so. In the meantime, the Brits are on track to save the world.

Coronavirus: Safety concerns halt use of 50 million NHS masks

Quote
The government says the masks, which use ear-loop fastenings rather than head loops, may not fit tightly enough.

They were bought for healthcare workers from supplier Ayanda Capital as part of a £252m contract.

Ayanda says the masks meet the specifications the government had set out. The government says its safety standards process is "robust".

It also emerged that the person who originally approached the government about the deal was a government trade adviser who also advises the board of Ayanda.

But he told the BBC his position played no part in the awarding of the contract.

Quote
The government has also disclosed that the original approach to sell the masks came not from Ayanda Capital but from a businessman called Andrew Mills.

His company, Prospermill, had secured the rights to the full production capacity of a large factory in China to produce masks and was able to offer a large quantity almost immediately.

But the legal document seen by the BBC notes that Mr Mills requested the government instead sign the contract for the masks with Ayanda Capital, whose board he advises, because it could arrange overseas payment more quickly.

This country has a serious corruption problem.

Can't remember which speech it was cos they all blur into one gelatinous sludge, but the COVID update where Johnson came out flanked by two scientists who stood and silently stared at their shoes while supreme leader Boris dribbled bullshit into a microphone was the moment I realised we were all utterly fucked.

Nothing to see. Move along.

Why is this tolerated or unchallenged? Where is the pushback? Please destroy this culture.

There's almost too much corruption to explore in any investigative sense.  Almost every week a dodgy contract gets awarded. There needs to be an anti-corruption task force set up.
