It's interesting watching Boris here - this is the most serious announcement he's had to make in his political career, yet he is still utterly incapable of gravitas - still bumbling, lots of 'er, er, look here now'.

  Honestly, can’t you just find it within yourself to say well done Boris rather than looking for something to criticise?

There'll no doubt be lots of 'the sky is falling' comments tonight from people, but the UK is a week behind Ireland in terms of pubs/restaurants closing and it's been fine here.

Went to the supermarket earlier today and there was a one-in, one-out policy - people queuing up outside a few feet apart from each other. Whilst a lot of restaurants have closed completely, others have switched to a takeaway service - kitchen still open, with customers collecting from the front door.

If Ireland can close pubs in St Patrick's week then anything is possible.

Because he's shit - he was shown up last week by Leo Varadkar in Ireland, someone who's only an acting leader as he lost the election but still was able to make the tough decisions when needed.

Boris is not, in any meaningful way, leading the country - he is completely out of his depth and was even just shown up by Rishi Sunak - someone who's been a top-level politician for about 5 minutes.

This week's delay of inaction will lead to many extra deaths.

If you are focussing on his deliver right now, you need to have a word with yourself.

These are massive commitments for a government of any colour, I think it was along the lines of what John McDonnell was asking for.

Honestly I’m knew there would be some clowns that would have nothing good to say despite him announcing an unprecedented level of support. If labour were doing it you would be singing their praises. You honestly need to give yourself a good slapping with a wet fish.....

...and you'd be the first one on here praising Jezza?

There has been a lot of people on the left praising Rishi Sunak, so it isn't easy to just claim it is a left/right thing.   At least Boris isn't Trump...  I do think Johnson and Sunak are doing a lot of the right things now FWIW.

Stick anyone up there, and I imagine they'd not be too lively. Boris is always going to be like that, whatever he's talking about, imo.

Plot Donald up next to him and Boris would look a good few rungs better, lol.

Donald dangerous when they let him talk about drugs Cheesy

He is the PM - one of his key responsibilities in a time of national crisis is to act as an inspiration for people - be someone who calms the nation and makes people think 'everything's going to be ok, because this guy is calling the shots'

Being his usual bumbling self does not do this, giving the impression of someone who is making decisions eventually, after a week of being told that not enough is being done - he is failing a key part of the job.

Not sure how I can praise someone who can’t even get elected........in reality I probably wouldn’t say very much. It certainly is a left/right thing when you have the usual idiots that can’t find a single good thing to say about Boris, sure Sunak made the announcement but to think Boris wasn’t heavily involved in that decision of support is completely insane, the buck stops with him so of course he was.....

Compare Boris' performance to that of Rishi Sunak - someone who is, rightly, getting a lot of praise from people for the way in which he is communicating important decisions.

The absolute gold standard of a person in a position of power and responsibility providing clear, calming and reassuring leadership at a time of huge national uncertainty was the governor of the Bank of England speaking just after the Brexit referendum result - compare and contrast this with Boris.

Don't know a lot about him, but that Sunak seems a pretty sharp character, or is that because he's up there with present company?

You have honestly lost the plot and are out of bullets to criticise Boris with if that is all you can come up with......
