U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for coronavirus, Downing Street said in an emailed statement on Friday. After experiencing mild symptoms yesterday, he was tested for coronavirus on the personal advice of England's Chief Medical Officer, Professor Chris Whitty said. "I've developed mild symptoms of the coronavirus, that's to say a temperature and a persistent cough," Johnson said in a video posted on Twitter.

It's just the start.
Congress will be hit. Soon. They need to figure out how to vote from home and start setting up some new procedures.

The UK's initial response was crazy. Looks like they finally woke up to reality a few days ago. I wonder if that corresponds to Johnson's need/desire to get tested and his even stronger position over the past few days?

All that and here we are with Trump leading us back to the old UK model.

BTW, Trump's a complete POS, incompetent, and a sociopath. He continues threatening States because a governor won't kiss his ring sufficiently. He's killing Americans with his pettiness and incompetence.

I just can't say I have sympathy for him. More correctly, I just won't say I have sympathy for him. Not a death wish though, every human being does deserve to be alive including pieces of filth like him.
One good thing, Ireland will probably be reunited. I will celebrate that.

I don't think we've had a frankly evil man as president before. We've had others with mental illness, but not one evil. Trump will be eventually be remembered along the lines of Vlad the Impaler.

It was unbelievable to me that in early March leaders such as Trump and Johnson were continuing to shake hands *and* defend their decision to do so. That Johnson did it in a hospital with coronavirus patients is even more mind-boggling.

Well, he does enjoy watching people suffer . . . and beg, too. Especially people whose life he holds in his hands.

There's lots of examples. From the vendors he cheated to the immigrant parents and children. Now it's the governors of blue states who are desperately in need of PPEs.

Trump has gone way past sociopath. He's a maniac.

Zed's point #7 above is sadly true. I do't wish harm on the wannabe royal family but I do wish all of them would just go away. Someone needs to tell them, "we don't do royal families in America. That's why we fought the Revolutionary War you idiots."
Ivanka and Don Jr. are puke worthy.

Nulli has gone full blow "c-c-conservative".

My guess is he hopes Biden and Sanders gets it so he's projecting that desire onto the rest of us here.

I never mentioned the virus liar. When Nulli can't make a real point he just makes s**t up. I honestly expressed indifference to Johnson's future, what is wrong with that. I oppose his ideology because I think it is destructive but as far as his life goes, I just don't care.

You're a disingenuous mofo.

Everyone on the left has wanted a competent response so that nobody gets sick. They want the hospitals to not be overcrowded so people's lives can be saved.

You're referring to the observations about these folks effed us all over by denying the virus and denying international friendship. There is a grim horror to seeing the leaders fall to the thing they're denying. Facing this crisis, it's natural to see it as them reaping what they sowed. Unfortunately, they took us all down with them.

People listen to Trump and BoJo deny the virus. They are shocked by the stupidity and they begin to wonder if these jackals have some secret knowledge that makes them sure we're all safe. The reality is that they are just idiots and this is proof of their incompetence. It's rightfully terrifying to people and everyone responds differently to our leaders abandoning us to fill their pockets.

Trump's back to it.

The brief proper response was merely to drum up support for the corporate bailout they're passing in Congress.

Never waste a crisis to loot the treasury!

"Danni said good riddance. Don't deny it."

I don't, I'm not ashamed of it. I just want Johnson to go away, that isn't the same thing as wanting him to die stupid.

I want you to go away too but I don't want you to die. You are annoying though.

We like to see karma in action.

Karma is a beech.

Th problem is Boris is a diseased vector now. And possibly intending on being criminally negligent as he says he won't stop shaking hands. Even tho he has tested positive.

Which means he could kill someone with his negligence.

Does nulli want him to continue to endanger his citizens by shaking their hands. If someone dies due to his intentional negligence isn't that manslaughter? Like intentionally giving someone aids? Pretty sure That is a crime.

I am glad Boris will continue to shake hands with his supporters. I appreciate the sacrifice.

He is self isolating now.

As of early March he was telling everyone they could still shake hands. He would not listen to his own people. Like Trumpy. He continued to shake hands. He defiantly shook hands in a hospital. With patients who had Coronavirus and with patients who didn't in the same hospital.

He said he would continue to shake hands. Up until he "self isolated" himself.
