I just read Johnson's Mail article:
BORIS JOHNSON: We have worked too hard, lost too many, sacrificed too much, just to see our efforts incinerated in another volcanic eruption of the virus.www.dailymail.co.uk
How the **** did Johnson gain a reputation as a great communicator? His metaphors are mixed, clumsy and cliched. His prose is verbose and convoluted. His claims are contradictory - we're simultaneously on top of the virus, thanks to his government's delayed interventions, and besieged.
"We are so nearly out of our captivity. We can see the sunlit upland pastures ahead. But if we try to jump the fence now, we will simply tangle ourselves in the last barbed wire..."
One of the worst things I've ever read in my life. Ruined my dinner to be honest.
When he talks/writes he imagines the entire country is Hugh Laurie's George from Blackadder Goes Forth.
