Well I just joined the BBC news conference 10 minutes ago and Blo Jo is just so appallingly out of his depth.. dire.

You missed the best bits which were at the beginning. At one point he got so frustrated at not being allowed to change the subject that he looked like he was going to storm off. This afternoon's performance has done him no good whatsoever.

It's too late for your whataboutism. Let's focus on the 50000+ dead under this clownshow governements watch. Let'e deal with cold hard facts.

Your mate Diane Abbot does not have enough fingers and toes to count that high so under Labour our death rate would have been the lowest in the world.

I think I get where you are coming from matey

I don't have a mate called Diane Abbot. As I said let's stick to cold hard facts like the 50,000+ dead under the watch of this pathetic governement.

Could any other political party in this country done any better

Please don't let the Brexit debate cloud your judgement 

I live in Denmark.

The shutdown was more moderate than the UK, but done earlier.

Both the left wing Government and the previous conservative Government had maintained stocks of PPE that meant there was adequate supplies for non-ICU staff as well as ICU staff. These measures drastically limited the spread and despite the initial infection rate being much higher than the UK, the number of deaths has been similar to that that would be expected for the time of year.

The lockdown is being eased now as the disease is far less prevalent than in the UK.

The Government have been clear in their messaging and have gain hugely increased support from across the political spectrum.

The press carry reports from the situation in the UK. It includes flabberghasted coverage of how badly the UK Government has handled it.

Still, the entire Danish population probably just did that because of Brexit?

My point is that all our political party's are a shambles.  

Hopefully this pandemic can now be the catalyst for radical change in this country.

I am very sorry.

I cannot tell you how the other parties would have done it Denmark.

Were I to claim to, you would think I was a brain dead partisan who has willingly thrown away any grasp of reality.

Do you think you know how the other parties owuld have done in the UK?

I though Brexit was going to do that.

Its made so much difference that, apparently, most Leavers are unaware that we have left the EU.

The same - both parties have helped run things down since 2008 so we were in a poor starting position. All began with bailing out the banksters £1.162 trillion, followed by us plebs suffering under austerity (robbed by sleight of word - quantitative easing).

Ah, mate, you badly misspelt "I was completely wrong, I am sorry, I will try to be less of a tit in future".

I showed you up, didn't I!

You thought you were clever, but I showed you why people on this forum laugh at you.

:D

Interesting insight into how the UK is perceived in Denmark. Many thanks for sharing.

Thank you.

The UK has been reported as going for daft populism, which is how it is seen by left and right in Denmark.

Just to add, they do have their own populist party that get about 13%, a fair reflection of the populist thinking. They are the ones who think Cummings did not break the lockdown.

Dangerous times. Truth is not allowed on BBC anymore if it contradicts the government propaganda.

We certainly have a shambles of a government.

I doubt any other party would have handled the situation so badly.

Doing so took the combination of arrogance and incompetence that this government specialises in.  The flirtation with herd immunity delayed the lockdown long enough to at least quadruple the number of infections/deaths here.

Although...

https://www.pressgazette.co.uk/bbc-backs-laura-kuenssberg-after-complaints-over-tweet-defending-dominic-cummings/

The BBC has backed its political editor, Laura Kuenssberg, over complaints she tweeted “in defence” of Dominic Cummings after news broke that he had driven from London to Durham during lockdown.

Kuenssberg responded directly to Daily Mirror political editor Pippa Crerar after the tabloid journalist shared the scoop on Friday night, in what critics argued amounted to a rebuttal of the story on Cummings’ behalf.

“Source says his trip was within guidelines as Cummings went to stay with his parents so they could help with childcare while he and his wife were ill – they insist no breach of lockdown,” Kuenssberg tweeted.

I am struggling to extract any sense from that.

Is the message that the BBC should be impartial between truth and lies.

It's a beautiful country and I've enjoyed the hospitality of the Danes. We were actually in Copenhagen last year as it's one of the countries we are considering relocating to once the Brexshit hits the fan.

Yes.

They should not try and tell the difference.

One view is as important as another.

 

 

(Unless it is not - there are some views that may not be challenged.)
