His government’s original idea was to let the pandemic rip and bank on herd immunity. Luckily the folly of that decision was soon recognised but they were still slower than the Europeans to go for lockdowns and that resulted in a far higher death rate during the first wave.
Yes you’re right but they were then slow at every turn and decision point other than looking at vaccines. They were also very quick to run to the private sector rather than looking at existing expertise and supplementing this as required.
As far as I’m concerned , their greatest success during the pandemic was to funnel billions of pounds of tax-payers’ money into the hands of their pals , with little or no public scrutiny. That is still probably the greatest scandal of Johnson’s premiership.
Little argument although Cameron managed to do it equally well, if not better without a pandemic.
Also worth noting that if you were a government that was hell bent on doing as little as possible during a pandemic your strategy would be herd immunity.

You sort of know that despite his briefings against May, 50%+1 will be good enough for Johnson.
