    The idea of this even being referred to as an apology is hilarious but this is a piece of genius

    I lost my grandmother over the 2020 lockdown, she was in hospital for ages before hand and no one from the family could see her. The fact that during all of that, while they told us what do, they were having 'business meetings' makes my blood boil.

    • SuperMelloMan

      Sorry to hear that sad news about your grandmother.
      It seems the Government have been telling fibs for ages
      I also have 2 friends who lost their Mums last year, and their families couldn't visit them in hospital 🥲
      I had an urgent operation in 🏨, they kept me in over night
      In a small room with no windows
      There were occasions when some doctors/nurses were walking around the wards not social distance
      I wasn't happy with their attitude, it would be a waste of time reporting it to the local newspaper as they will probably change my words to suit the editor 📝 Boris, should resign asap 🙏

    Do you remember a retired nurse and members of her family being arrested for removing her elderly mother from a Care Home, to go and live with them?
    The family members, who were highly qualified to care for their own relative, were arrested, and the dying, elderly grandmother was forced to go back into solitary confinement in the care home.
    It was an evil travesty for thousands of elderly people, imprisoned by the state, and by care homes - whilst Boris and chums were holding illegal parties.

      I have apologise (not really tho because I did nothing wrong)
      and we should all wait for the enquiry..." (because I have organized it and wrote up a list of who is going to take the fall for me. Code name *Save big dog*)

      A brilliant display of points in your defense Boris. That that 3 point?
      Well here is our 3 points, in no particular order.
      1. Boris your a lying selfish cheat!
      2.Boris your a lying selfish prat!

      Boris should be fined for every party he attended, as should everyone else who went. Thats was the rule. Anyone else who broke them was fined up to £10.000. He should cough up, then he REALLY would be sorry.

      ​@Cuuurly Fries No one should be above being responsible for their actions, least of all someone who is responsible for the welfare of a nation. Making excuses and letting those in power get away with the crimes we know of just breeds more corruption. Any and all slip ups should be punished because chances are there are many, many more and this just happens to be a time they got caught. Make them think twice before swindling and cheating.

      Don't give me that sob story over what he's done. Vaccines would have been rolled out whoever was in control, he hasn't been putting his life on the line any more than the rest of us have.

    • Cuuurly Fries

      @Lio Elbammalf I do not worship boris, but I think he is doing a better job than most.
      Even Churchill, one of britains best prime ministers have done some illegal things.
      Everyone makes mistakes, but he should not lose his job because of it.
      The goodness of his actions outweigh the bad.
      And it’s a bit hypocritical to say I want to see Britain fail, when you don’t support the man who has funded the vaccines and has put his life on the line for Britain.
      I haven’t seen any politician give up so much for the country in decades.
      I’m saying he doesn’t deserve to lose his job from spending 20 minutes outside when so many other politicians have done so much worse before him.

      "It was an apology for getting caught."
      It wasn't even that. He maintained that technically it was within the rules and apologised for millions of people getting the wrong impression, although he agreed he should have managed the impression better than he did.
      He basically apologised for us being wrong.

    Boris, the story so far:
    Opposed Brexit but switched sides midway through and stabbed Cameron in the back.
    Opposed Theresa May at every opportunity to bolster his (successful) bid to become Prime minister on a 'Let's get Brexit done' campaign.
    Brexit; hit the ground running but has fumbled the ball ever since, leaving chaos and confusion.
    Covid; late to the party, confusing and some times bizzare restrictions put in place: you can't visit your loved ones but you can mix with thousands of complete strangers at a football match!
    Failed on numerous occasions to sack Dominic 'I'm getting my eyes tested' Cummings and now,
    He attends a cheese and wine 'working party' of which, some 100 people were invited to attend, if we are to believe the leaked email, at No. 10, some working party!
    The man is a disgrace, has no moral compass and believes that rules, his rules, are for other people.

      If the Tories had elected Jeremy Hunt as their new leader, and PM (back in July 2019), we would probably only have half the problems we have now.

      So much about the country's state of affairs now is a direct result of the decision made by the Tory party then. It doesn't help that so many of the electorate subsequently fell for Boris hook line and sinker. Going all 'dewy eyed' and becoming sycophantic with the "oh well, it's just Boris being Boris" schtick.

      They wanted a 'character' after the drab 'May years' , but they (the Tory party) didn't look at anything else - such as Boris's record in public office, his contempt for rules, his shambolic leadership style, and the fact that he changes his views according to which way the wind is blowing.

      They overlooked ALL if this and are now somewhat surprised that he has created such a mess; and led both the country and his party in a direction that neither should be heading in.

      @Alden Doble So many empty words you'd forgive me for saying a career in politics would rather suit you!
      All I can say is put some time into working out what you think the problems are, then put the rest of it into working towards fixing them. Dramatising minor counts of irresponsible behaviour or preaching about the collapse of society is doing nothing to help anyone. It's easy to type from your mobile or post something on Instagram. Get out there, start giving some help and you'll get back some perspective on what real issues are.

    • Alden Doble

      @Elliott Wright I don't think you quite grasp the severity of what is actually happening. Sure our country might not be as hellish as what's going on in other countries around the world, but that's only because we were in a better position in the first place.

      The factor of failure relative, so it is not to be compared to others, but instead to be compared our own. The collective failure of other countries should be considered afterwards. Once you put all of the pieces together you can see it is society as a whole which is collapsing.

      Humanity's doom is much closer than most people are lead to beleive.

      Come on, I mean I hate to sound harsh, but get a grip! I see it has already rightly been stated that we live in Britain at possibly it's safest, wealthiest, and most full of opportunity. Take a look at the swathes of corrupt and unethical countries who have put money over lives completely, prioritised government officials and dignitaries over the public for vaccinations or health treatment etc. God forbid you look outside of Covid at the current warzone Ukraine has become for millions of innocent civilians, the ongoing genocide being carried out by Mayanmar, mass arbitrary detention towards Muslims in China and masses of other crimes against humanity... gain some perspective for god's sake!
      A government office organised some outdoors, socially distanced drinks during lockdown. While not directly breaking rules, it was irresponsible - this you cannot deny. But Christ, the PM briefly wandering in to thank the government staff for all their work is far from cause to lose the ability to "construct a sentence to comprehend my level of despair". Utter drama queen.

      @Jason I'm more upset about our political system as a whole - not just a particular party. Parliament has been rotten to the core for decades now, but Covid really helped shine the spotlight on just what horrors our "leaders" are capable of.

      Politicians are simply not equipped for a worldwide disaster, as dealing with it requires complete unity, which is something no politician wants or is capable of dealing with.

      When you see thousands of people grieving over lost family and friends (regardless of who they voted for), you really begin to grasp just how much our current democratic political system has well and truly failed us 😔

    To be fair, I've seen him stumble into a venue, play with a kids train set for 10 mins and leave without speaking to anyone and repeatedly get out a lift on the wrong floor so it wouldn't surprise me if he didn't realise he was at a party. I know the public think he's an idiot but the media do a pretty good job at making him seem smarter than he actually is. His stupidity is a borderline medical condition based on the granted few interactions I've had with him in the past.

      @Keith Williams making accusations is the dark art of the masters Blair and Campbell.

      Prove that accusations first.

      It's like a return to the dark days of the early nineties spin. Except we can't afford it now and we know Labour don't have a clue.

      @dragonfly6908 I saw them sitting on the side patio.

      This is where they live and work. Sitting in a communal garden for a fag or a snack wasn't banned at any stage.

      This was one month after the Cummings eye test scandal, so I don't think they would willfully break the rules.

      Incompetent? Yeah. Failure to have proper HR to create office policy? Yes.

      I don't think people remember that "essential workers" were all doing this. Whether it was the informal builders pubs, the hospital canteens and gardens - work only stopped for the lap top classes and retail.

    I think for me I weigh this transgression against the disruption of my kids education. Seeing kids miss out on all of school experiences, and enduring months of social isolation. They are still missing out on big events. I feel very very sorry for kids who missed the extracurricular elements of their transitional years (end of GCSEs or A Levels); those are the best years of your life. Students at University too: They are paying £10,000 a year in tuition fees and are cut off from tutors, and receiving no face to face tuition. - These problems are first world problems, I am aware, but. . when I hear that rule makers are partying whilst the young are missing out on their formative years. A bit peeved, I am. I want Boris out.

    Luckily I haven't taken any of their offered advice since day one but some have been much less fortunate. I have friends who lost family members whose last hours were spent among masked strangers in hospital or care homes. The worst of these by far being a 15 year old who became so scared by the constant drivel from experts on the tv, sadly took his own life. Found by his mother and 8 year old sister hanging from the loft hatch. They will never recover from that image or the loss of their family member. Yet these so called leaders of ours think it is funny to ignore their advice!!!!!!!!! They should never be allowed to hold office at any level ever again.
