‘Absolutely insane!’ On Boris Johnson’s U-turn, Darren McCaffery blasts Dr. Liam Fox.
GB News host Darren McCaffery slammed the Prime Minister’s U-Turn when he retreated into covid isolation, arguing that Boris Johnson should continue to rule the country instead.
Darren McCaffery criticized the “ridiculous” idea that the Prime Minister should have to follow the same coronavirus restrictions as the rest of the British people during a conversation with Conservative MP Dr. Liam Fox. He emphasized how the Prime Minister is in charge of running the country, which means he should not be required to self-isolate because he has received both doses of the covid vaccine, has covid, and is the country’s leader. The announcement comes as Mr Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak reversed their decision to isolate after coming into contact with Health Secretary Sajid Javid, who tested positive for coronavirus on Sunday.
“For my money, there are a lot of individuals criticizing the government, claiming there is one rule for them and one rule for others,” Darren McCaffrey said.
“However, he is the Prime Minister, and should we expect him to follow the same rules that everyone else does?
“It’s ludicrous that someone who has had dupable poked and has had the virus before should be going about his business… no?”
“Of course he needs to go on with his job,” Dr. Liam Fox responded.
“Of course, the question is always one of reality and perception, and whether you’re still asking them to follow the norms.
“It doesn’t look good if the bosses don’t play by the rules.
“At the moment, we don’t live in a really balanced era where people will say, ‘Of course, the Prime Minister has to get on with his job, he has to be.’
“It all comes down to perception politics.”
The remarks come after a tumultuous day for the government on Sunday, which saw No. 10 Downing Street make a U-turn on the notion of Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak isolating themselves.
The NHS Test&Trace App alerted the pair after they had been into close contact with Health Secretary Sajid Javid, who tested positive for Coronavirus on Saturday, but Downing Street assured the pair would be fine on Sunday morning. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
