Boris Johnson urged to apologise for 'over 80s' Covid comment

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-57917172

Boris Johnson has faced calls to apologise for saying people dying from Covid were "essentially all over 80", in a text leaked by Dominic Cummings.

The prime minister did not deny making the comments, in October last year, as he argued against a second lockdown.
But he told Prime Minister's Questions the government was making "incredibly tough balancing decisions" at the time. Nothing he could say or do would make up for the "loss and suffering" people had endured, Mr Johnson added.

The SNP's leader at Westminster, Ian Blackford, also called for an apology, adding: "How can anyone have put faith and trust in a prime minister who actually typed the words 'Get Covid and live longer'?"

Indeed .....

If we are reduced to using quotes from Blackford and his ilk to support our argument we are short indeed of support. Especially about trust
