What a pile-on
DOES anyone seriously believe Boris Johnson is callous about Covid victims’ lives?

Boris Johnson every act since the full threat from Covid became clear he is not callous about victims’ lives[/caption]
Last April he asked Kate Bingham to lead our jabs programme with a simple instruction: “Stop people from dying.”
He almost became a casualty himself. And it is his unwillingness to risk ANY lives that dictates the hyper-caution of our glacial “roadmap” to unlocking.
If the “piles of bodies” remark was as reported (and the PM claims it’s a lie) it was a private outburst after being forced into a second lockdown. That rage would be understandable.
Shutting Britain down was a monumental decision for any PM, let alone doing so twice and then having to ponder a third.
If true, it was certainly unpleasant.
How many of Boris’s critics would fancy their every private remark in the heat of the moment being scrutinised by their enemies and Twitter’s hate monkeys?
A nation’s hell
THE suffering in India is apocalyptic.
The country whose leader declared victory over Covid in January is engulfed by the nightmare every nation dreaded.
AstraZeneca is serving as a scapegoat for Brussel’s shambolic jab rollout[/caption]
Britain has sent ventilators and oxygen machines, with more to follow. We should offer Indian-made UK jabs too.
It doesn’t need more supplies: Holland won’t be using 11million AZ jabs it has ordered. So why sue? Simple.
AstraZeneca is to be the undeserving scapegoat for Brussels’ ineptitude.
IRAN’S sickening new jail term for mum Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe heaps further global shame on this terrorist state.
She is a hostage, not a prisoner.
Our hearts go to Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe after Iran’s sickening new jail term for the mum[/caption]
Our hearts go out to her and her family. But it’s not just Iran that’s disgraced.
So is the UN, which just elected the hardline Islamists to its Commission on the Status of Women to promote “equality and the empowerment of women”.
Remember that when another hard-Left United Nations “inspector” tells a gullible world how repressive Britain is.

WE’RE happy to hear the Post Office’s ex-chief has quit two jobs over the appalling miscarriage of justice on her watch.
But Paula Vennells’ resignations cannot make up for the hundreds of staff falsely accused, punished and ruined.
Nor will the Government’s feeble review. It must commit to a judge-led public inquiry with witnesses testifying on oath and the guilty finally exposed.
Such a vast injustice demands it.
