I detest some of his political views however a man is in intensive care and his pregnant fiance has the virus.

That is fucking horrific so I can't bring myself to do anything other than wish all three of them a full and speedy recovery.

All of this "aye but" debate is going to achieve is start the usual "would you say that if it was the Pope, Queen, Jeremy, Keir, Celtic manager, Rangers manager etc etc etc ad fucking nauseam" pish

I was in intensive care with pneumonia a few years ago. I survived and was back to work a week after. Hard as fuck me.

I'll never get revelling in someone's misfortune. And I can't stand the fella. Stay classy.

Nah, fuck him. I'll be annoyed if he pulls through.

There's generally lots of hypocrisy on wishing death on people, or celebrating when people die. For example Tony Blair was quick to criticise people celebrating Maggie Thatcher's death, yet he seems to have forgotten two years earlier he wrote an article crowing about the death of Osama bin Laden.

Come on, wishing death on anyone during this, is beneath us.  Let’s try and maintain basic human decency even if you loathe the chap and have valid reasons for doing so.

People have the right to not care in the slightest what happens to Boris Johnson due to his appalling record and remarks in his past, especially those aimed across the LGBTQ spectrum and against numerous racial minorities.

It should also be pointed out that it's likely him that's passed this virus on to his pregnant wife, which is another black mark against his name.

Thought this was nice. 

I'm not crying, you're crying.  No actually, I'm crying.

Have you noticed though that all old people (75+) write the same, as in letter formation?  I'm guessing it was a schooling thing back in the day.

I agree in principle, but there's still a fairly large gap between not caring about him and those actively celebrating that he's getting tubed up.  55 years old is a hell of a time to find out that your actions have consequences for the first time.

Also, for anyone actually hoping he dies just ponder that he'll be mythologised by a certain demographic so be careful what you wish for.

If people do hope that he dies a slow agonising death then they always have the option of keeping that to themselves too.

I think if Boris goes, it's time to get serious. Coalition "wartime" government, rationing, martial law, no more pussyfooting around with people being given "stern reprimands" for having barbecues in the park or birthday parties with friends and family in attendance.

I don't think a coalition is necessary or even a possibility, the government has a stonking majority.

News of the Prime Ministers move to ICU really hit me hard last night - my hopes and prayers go out to him and Carrie. Just knowing the head of the government is in such a precarious position because of this virus will, I hope, finally convince the remaining idiots who've held out to finally observe social distancing and stay at home.

I just wish Michael Gove was in temporary charge instead of Dominic Raab - and that it is indeed temporary and Boris Johnson makes a full recovery and returns to government as soon as possible.
