Voice of the Mirror: 'Boris Johnson puts himself first and takes us for granted'


Show your face, Boris

Now we know where the Prime Minister’s priorities lie. Boris Johnson has yet to visit any of the areas hit by the floods.

He has not shown any sympathy for the victims who have lost their homes or seen their businesses washed away.

Nor has he uttered a single word of thanks to the emergency services, volunteers and civil servants who have been working around the clock to help those affected.

Mr Johnson clearly thinks boosting the Conservative coffers is more important than showing leadership as the country faces the worst floods in years and an unprecedented public health crisis caused by the coronavirus.

Now he is in Downing Street, he cannot be bothered to look for his wellies.

At times of crisis, the public look to their Prime Minister for reassurance.

Instead, we have a leader who puts himself first and takes the rest of us for granted.
