Weird, the BBC Radio news (on 6Music at least) had it first story.

Nah. Just imagine how much worse it would have been under Corbyn...

Are you trying to imply that he isn't entirely responsible?

They also asked the Defence Secretary about it on BBC Breakfast. His reply was "This is just hearsay" Pretty big news that he's naming a former pop group as a source.

As Novara pointed out, this is just another case of moving the spotlight from what was leaked (which is the important story) into "who leaked it".

"There'll be an inquiry".

Must be a coordinated approach.

Rees-Mogg said "It's just a load of fucking S Club Sevens. mate. That's all it is, S Club Sevens" while doing that Emu thing with his hand.

I can see a logic where people agree with him - it's fine to be blasé after the fact, when you're not dead: "yeah, we should have just powered through! Boris was right!"

What kind of working class man hasn't gone down the pub and talked about bodies piling up through their own wilful negligence.

They know their place well enough to know that if their betters tell them it's necessary then it is.

"Let the bodies pile high in their thousands" has honestly sent me into a bit of a tailspin. I can't actually believe it.

it's the best bit of rhetoric he's come up with since he became prime minister. it is good to sing to the tune of "my bonnie lies over the ocean"

LET THE BODIES PILE HIGH IN THEIR THOUSANDS
LET THE CORPSES GO DOWN TO THEIR GRAVES
LET THE BODIES PILE HIGH IN THEIR THOUSANDS
WHILE MY MATES MAKE MORE MONEY IN SPADES

Alright step down. He's denied and at the same time paid tribute to all those that pulled together through the lockdown. And something about vaccines.

So if you question what he's saying your'e doing down the people who pulled together and you hate vaccines and the NHS.

"Fair enough" says Keith.

His coke-addled mind probably thinks it's something his beloved Churchill would have come out. His "we shall fight them on the beaches" moment.

Bob Page : Why contain it? Let it spill over the schools and churches, let the bodies pile up in the streets. In the end they'll beg us to save them.

Boris Johnson did make 'bodies could pile high' comment

Oh!

Boris Johnson suggested that "bodies could pile high" during a heated discussion about lockdown

Uh huh

Quote
The PM denied making the remarks, adding that lockdowns had worked.

Ah

Quote
The comments are said to have been made

Hm

Quote
The story was labelled "not true" by Defence Secretary Ben Wallace

Oh

Quote
The PM's spokesman also said the reported comments were false adding: "This is untrue and the PM has denied it… I'm not aware of anyone else making that statement."

Right

Jeremy Corbyn demanded that bodies were piled high. "I want the corpses to block out the sun" he said, according to a source.
