BORIS Johnson was told yesterday that his Government had “got it all wrong” on Lockdown by a straight-talking 83-year-old Yorkshire lass and demanded that Britain “get back on its feet”.
The 83-year-old from Barnsley, in South Yorkshire – a region that is set to join Liverpool and Greater Manchester in a tough economy-crushing Tier 3 Lockdown told the PM that his policy was “ridiculous,” and she speaks for millions across the UK.
She told BBC Yorkshire she said: “I think it’s all ridiculous.”
“We should never have been in lockdown.”
“All the people who were vulnerable should have been helped and kept safe. All the rest of us, I’m 83, I don’t give a sod.”
“I WON’T BE FASTENED IN MY HOUSE!”
“I look at it this way I’ve not got all that many years left of me and I’m not going to be fastened in a house when the government have got it all wrong.”
She added: “We need, how can we get the country on its feet? Money-wise, where’s all the money?”
“By the end of this year, there’s going to be millions of people unemployed and you know who’s going to pay for that? All the young ones. Not me because I’m going to be dead.”
THE TORIES regained their crown of the Nasty Party last night after refusing to extend support for free school meals over the holidays in a campaign backed by Man United footballer Marcus Rashford.
The extra support amid the Coronavirus pandemic would have helped to feed some of the UK’s most left-behind kids. The decision by Tory MPs came just days after Boris Johnson made millions poorer in the North by imposing a Tier 3 lockdown on Greater Manchester, despite having no support from local leaders, including Conservative and Labour MPs.
