Boris Johnson: 'Let the bodies pile high in their thousands'

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ces-claim.html

Boris Johnson said he would rather see ‘bodies pile high in their thousands’ than order a third lockdown, it was claimed last night.

The explosive remark is said to have come after he reluctantly imposed the second lockdown, sources told the Mail.

Downing Street last night strongly denied the Prime Minister made the comment, insisting it was ‘just another lie’. But those who say they heard it stand by their claim.

It allegedly came after Michael Gove warned Mr Johnson that soldiers would be needed to guard hospitals overrun with Covid victims.

Mr Johnson agreed to fresh restrictions but his frustration is said to have boiled over after the crucial meeting at No 10 in October. ‘No more ****ing lockdowns – let the bodies pile high in their thousands!’ he is alleged to have raged.

The Prime Minister is also reported to have made similarly blunt observations during the crisis.
Originally, I discounted this as malicious rumour but:

Prime Minister Boris Johnson did make remarks suggesting that "bodies could pile high" during a heated discussion about lockdown in Downing Street in the autumn, the BBC has been told.
Perhaps The Dome recorded it .....

Sounds the sort of thing one might say out of exasperation when dealing with idiots.

If Johnson did say that he should be kicked out as PM, tout suite.

Re: Boris Johnson: 'Let the bodies pile high in their thousands'

Just a bit of rhetoric being used against him and the Conservatives as part of the upcoming elections campaign.

Have you ever threatened to kill someone? Was it a genuine threat? Of course not, it's something said in exasperation and in the heat of the moment - just like this non-story.

It isn't a non-story at all if it is true, it is disgusting and he should pay for it BIG TIME!

Until then, it's just malicious gossip and hearsay. Other MPs have come out and stated that the allegations that he made these comments are false.

Hi

Boris is a known liar, he has been sacked twice for it.

He also does not think before he says things, which is why we still hsvea British lady once again imprisoned in |Iran.

He is not invulnerable

He has picked a fight with Cummings, Mercer and another.

His choice, his decision.
