No longer helped along by the mass of baying and partisan back benchers at his back, alleged Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is finding Prime Minister’s Questions an increasingly tricky affair. He turns up without bothering to prepare, expecting to wing it once more, only to find Keir Starmer ready to deliver his cross-examination and skewer the clueless SOB. The waffle and bluster isn’t covering his deficiencies.slavish endorsement from the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines and his rabble at the Guido Fawkes blog, who first conceded that Bozo fouled up - “there’s no wriggle room, prosecutor Starmer’s got him bang to rights” - then claimed “Turns out there is wriggle room, Keir Starmer didn’t take the time to read the small print. Which is a bad failing in a lawyer”, then wavered before seeing Bozo’s letter and claiming their man won.sided with Starmer, Tweeting “At PMQs, Keir Starmer claimed that, until 12 March, government guidance had said people in care homes were ‘very unlikely’ to be infected with Covid-19. Boris Johnson said this was incorrect, but Mr Starmer was correct and previous guidance did say this”. Observers tended to agree.it got worse for Bozo, as the Guardian’s Andrew Sparrow told: “It turns out that, when No 10 claimed Sir Keir Starmer selectively quoted from government guidance on care homes, it was highlighting the wrong quote … At a subsequent briefing No 10 claimed Starmer had quoted selectively from the document, because he had added ‘remains’ and missed out a ‘therefore’ … No 10 was referring to [a] passage … in section 1”.
We have a Prime Minister and backup team who can’t figure out their own guidance documents. What you will not read in most of the press today.
