    That just looks like a pinko liberal leftie version of Boris.

    Sorry to be un-PC or whatever, but when you think about it, Ms Corona has stomped into our lives, stopped climate change in its tracks, severely incapacitated one of the architect's of the greatest political con of the last decade, incentivised a bunch of lazy slobs to go jogging, and single-handedly ended the 3 hour+ meeting.

    I mean, slay (a little).

    Boris’s kids (including Milo and Lara Lettuce) with his wife are a quarter Indian though you would never know to look at them.

    Apparently he is NOT on a ventilator and has only been given oxygen, but doctors online have said that this contradicts with the fact he is in ICU. I don't actually trust ANY of the news we get out, they're hardly going to tell us he's on death's door, even if he is.

    Would you really need to be on oxygen if you DIDN'T have pneumonia? :confused:

    I love my tin foil hat but maybe they're being overtly cautious since he is the Prime Minister.

    It's St Thomas Hospital not Area 51, if he was worse than what they're saying there would be word out unofficially soon. Also I doubt the medical team at the hospital would spin this and they have come out saying he had indeed been given oxygen and was not on a ventilator.

    I had "walking pneumonia" a few years ago, had difficulty breathing but never felt like I was choking. I could do most of my day to day stuff, and it took forever to shake.

    Isn't it five confirmed and then at least one other unconfirmed, plus the baby on the way?

    I suspect WEASEL WORDS here. They said he hasn't been DIAGNOSED with pneumonia. But that doesn't mean he doesn't have or isn't SUSPECTED of having it.

    If he really IS on an ICU ward surely someone would LEAK IT.

    Would they REALLY allow him to take up a much-needed bed for a PR stunt though? It's seems a bit too much like a David Icke fantasy...

    But he's got the BEST DOCTORS caring for him

    which presumably means the shit doctors are helping patients in a more serious condition.

    But then again Russia has been known to spread a lot of desinformation in Europe during the Corona crisis.

    Oh for sure, the Russian media is about as reliable as the Chinese government's press department. The UK is clearly being given the bare bones of the story so it just wouldn't surprise me if there isn't plenty of information swirling about elsewhere.

    I'm expecting Paris Match or the National Inquirer to be first for a bedside pic! The UK press wouldn't touch it.

    The bedside pic is going to be Kate Middleton's tits all over again, only even more arousing.

    Yeah I have a feeling he's a lot worse than publicised. And this "in good spirits" is just another 3 word Tory slogan like Get Brexit Done or Strong and Stable

    Careful though, if they realise you're doing that in work hours they might CRACK DOWN

    God I miss the days when the most significant three words a Tory ever said were 'open wide, Edwina'.

    I don't appreciate Raab's rhetoric about Boris being 'a fighter' who 'will recover'. It implies that people who die somehow aren't strong or didn't fight hard enough.

    It's very on brand for this batch of gammon-baiting Tories. He'll have mentioned the war before too long. "Our boy Boris will bounce back, just like Blighty did after we thrashed the Jerries."

    I've long been annoyed by this linguistic choice. The press would always say that someone "lost their battle with cancer" as if it wasn't the cancer that killed them but their failure to fight it off and I detest that implication. It's backdoor pseudo-Darwinism and can fuck off.

    It's also politicians not knowing how to frame anything in a language other than that of combat, even war.
