Boris Johnson: “Let the bodies pile high in their thousands”

PM Johnson has faced sharp criticism for the comment he allegedly made regarding the prospect of another lockdown in Autumn 2020.

The BBC, ITV and The Daily Mail have confirmed that he made the statement, though Downing Street and Johnson firmly deny the claims.

Reaction from the cabinet

PM Johnson denied the claims while campaigning in Wales. He was visiting a factory in Wrexham when a reporter asked him if he made the controversial statement.

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Michael Gove, said that he was at the meeting that Johnson reportedly shouted the statement. He claims he “never heard,” the Prime Minister say those words.

Panic in Downing Street

In the past few weeks, Downing Street and the Conservative Party have seen countless allegations of cronyism, corruption and apathy.

With elections just two weeks away, these endless revelations may tarnish the Conservative Party in the eyes of the electorate, and cause electoral defeats across the UK.

With former chief aide Dominic Cummings also alleging against the PM, it raises the question of whether his time in Number 10 is up.

Many right-wing newspapers in the UK have also turned against the incumbent PM, with the Daily Mail being the catalyst that triggered this current story.
