Of course Johnson takes decisions, Christ almighty how many u-turns has this government made in its last two years - they can't do u-turns if they've not made both a decision first THEN another decision to change it - can they???
I never claimed he made good decisions but you can't be in charge if you can't take decisions, even wrong ones.
He clearly decided to go for the vaccine route and order millions before they even were approved - very risky taking a chance not knowing the outcome - but it turned out to be the right one - he put Kate Bingham in charge of the vaccine acquisition and roll out - Maugham screamed cronyism and corruption over the appointment and started to take the government to court over this - I believe you were one of those banging on about it at the time as well - but it proved to be the right decision - and Maugham has since very, very quietly dropped his claims over her (well fancy that!).
It was the right thing to do to get PPE fast when the pandemic broke out - that was the correct decision rather than not have any - which at times we barely had.
Of course some of the decisions were bad ones or caused future problems like faulty PPE stock - but better a load of good stock and a chunk faulty, than no PPE at all.
Not remember the saying about 'he who hesitates is lost'?
He's just made a decision about Social Care and increased NI - against the view of his party apparently. It might turn out to be a disastrous decision in time - but my point again is that he's taken a decision rather than the easy option of doing nothing.
I'm certainly not a Boris fan but given a choice between him and Starmer (or is it Raynor, or Burnham or Long-Bailey...) he's going to have a walkover at the next election isn't he?
The only chance Labour have is to take the initiative now, take the lead in visionary polices that the people will buy into and a leader who they will get behind.
They've had two years of a pretty poor Tory Government with Boris in charge and what have they managed to achieve in that time?
They've gone backwards if anything!!!
Even Del Trotter has a mantra of 'he who dares'!
If Labour want to wait until they hone the perfect policies then they will look up after they've finally done so and realise that it was way too late and they'd already missed the boat which had sailed off on a vision and a prayer already.
Personally I think they are already dead in the water in terms of the next General Election, they have to get their act together and let people know their vision now if they want to prove me wrong (so that the electorate can start to buy into and believe in their visions).
They are simply too divided amongst themselves to do that other than to come up with some unbelievable tripe such as Corbyn did in his manifesto.
That's the reality and nothing to do with any political ideology you may think I have.
