ďBoris deserves measured praise for the tone, content and delivery of his address. For the first time in his premiership I saw an embryo statesman emerging - discarding the natural bonhomie that had become his stock-in-trade - replaced by the gravitas which was required. Not too much distracting hand-waving, thank goodness but with a reasonably-paced delivery and a clear, short unambiguous message. As someone who was appalled at his rise to the top of the Tory party and even rejoiced when he continued to make gaffes, this morning I have to eat a starter portion of humble pie. Cometh the hour, cometh Boris. May he lead the nation successfully through this test.Ē

I think you would have to be extremely bitter and churlish to disagree with this comment from a Times reader, following yesterdayís announcement.  He needs our collective support now, love him or loathe him.

It shows how low a bar we have set for Johnson when we it takes for him simply to read a pe-written statement for us to be impressed. Was it only last week that he told us that he was going to visit his mother on Motherís Day while simultaneously telling us to stay away? Was it only a couple of months ago that he was enjoying a Caribbean freebie when he should have been putting in place measures to negate the worst of this horrendous virus ? We knew it was coming. We had all seen Wuhan. Lest we ever forget, if Johnson hadnít followed his Ďherd immunityí strategy we might not have had 89 dead in one day.

Iím aware the right would like to paint those criticising  Johnsonís woefully inadequate response as somehow part of the problem but even in times of crisis our elected governmentís actions should be scrutinised. In fact itís arguably more important now than ever before.

Itelexit is coming!!!

Thanks to the EU's open borders which are not being closed which is against the EU laws  ^*&& when it suits them.

Here we see the open wounds of the struggling countries and the UN-ELECTED  saviors in EU land...

France and Germany refusing to export masks and other vital equipment to save their own and the uninvited asylum seekers via boats to Italy. have Fined them for helping their own economy in the light of lock down.

THANK YOU BREXITEERS FOR GETTING UK OUT IN TIME!

I agree, we do need to keep up pressure for bad or poor judgement on the government.

I will eventually get far more than being on Universal Credit and unlike some people I realise that government does not hsve a magic wand and that some things take time to set up.  This is why people should try and put aside a little bit of the ir income as contingency for such events.  I have enough saved to see me through until June because I have been prudent.  Also, I expect ten grand to be landing in my business account well before June.  I do feel sorry for those who are in a less fortunate position than myself but what do you suggest the govt should do more than it is already doing (which is a pretty magnificent effort imo)?

No-one here believes the parents were directly involved in MM's disappearance because belief without evidence is useless.
