COVIDIOT! Prime Minister FAILS Test on HIS OWN Lockdown Rules

BORIS Johnson was slammed yesterday after he ‘mis-spoke’ on his-own Lockdown policy in the North East, leading to even more criticism of his handling of the Coronavirus pandemic.

During a press conference on jobs and growth, the PM took questions from reporters on the local lockdown in the North East of England.

When the PM was asked about whether people from different households could meet in pub and restaurant gardens, Johnson said the following, ‘It is six in a home, six in hospitality but as I understand it, not six outside’.

Bufoon Boris later admitted on Twitter that he had ‘misspoke’.

He said:  “Apologies, I misspoke today. In the North East, new rules mean you cannot meet people from different households in social settings indoors, including in pubs, restaurants and your home.”

“You should also avoid socialising with other households outside.”

“This is vital to control the spread of coronavirus and keep everyone safe. If you are in a high risk area, please continue to follow the guidelines from local authorities”.

He was hit with a massive backlash online and was accused of failing to know his own rules.

One New European writer felt that ‘the country misspoke when it made you PM’, while former doctor and member of comedy band Amateur Transplants Adam Kay asked Johnson that ‘Whilst you’re in an apologising mood, anything to say about care homes, PPE provision and lockdown timing last time around, and the ongoing test and trace fiasco?’.

Political comedian Tom Walker, better known by his alias Jonathan Pie joked that Johnson did not ‘have a f*cking clue’, meanwhile Mail on Sunday columnist Peter Hitchens called Johnson a ‘pathetic, pitiable figure’.

The new restrictions in the North East of England are in response to the increasing numbers of cases, with citizens in the likes of Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland and Durham being banned from socialising indoors with people from outside their household or a strictly defined social bubble.

They apply to homes, pubs and restaurants, with fines in place to those who break the law.
