Some commentators initially concluded this week that alleged Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson had done rather better in his weekly Prime Minister’s Questions encounter with Labour leader Keir Starmer. But as so often before, Bozo The Clown’s great achievement began to unravel with giddying speed.had told “Priti Patel has sparked anger by refusing to cut or axe the huge fees paid by foreign healthcare workers to help fund the NHS - just three weeks after promising to ‘review’ the controversial charges”. Bozo must have known Starmer would tackle him on it. And he had the opportunity to scrap it.reported after PMQs, “The prime minister resisted pressure from Labour’s Keir Starmer to amend the policy, telling MPs that he ‘accepts and understands the difficulties faced by our amazing NHS staff’ but added: ‘We must look at the realities … those contributions help us to raise about £900m.’” It was in fact closer to £90 million.reported yesterday “NHS staff and care workers from overseas will no longer have to pay an extra charge towards the health service after mounting pressure from MPs. Boris Johnson's spokesman said the PM had asked the Home Office and Department for Health to exempt NHS and care workers ‘as soon as possible’. Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said it was ‘a victory for common decency’”. Meaning a victory for Himself, too.
And Pippa Crerar of the Mirror concluded “So maybe Keir Starmer's PMQs performance yesterday was actually quite good after all?” Bozo PMQs score draw? No chance.
