Since the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus pandemic, the Prime Minister and his Ministers have faced backlash over their handling of the disease. England is currently in its second national lockdown, implemented after cases started to rise.

While speaking at a Downing Street press conference this week, the Prime Minister said his aim was to avoid “taking our foot off the throat of the beast”.

He said: “If we ease off now we risk losing control of this virus all over again, casting aside our hard-won gains and forcing us back to a New Year national lockdown with all the damage that would mean.”

As soon as the country exits its second lockdown, a new harsh three tier system is set to be imposed immediately.

Mr Humphrys said: “The charge against Johnson is that he’s all boosterism and no battle.

“He makes a lot of empty promises and treats us like idiots.

“Or like children who have to be jollied along.

“What he should be doing is treating us like responsible adults and simply giving it to us straight.”
