Aye, inaction is his middle name.
As one journalist accurately observed this weekend, Johnson will leave it until last minute, until a decision is forced upon him, as with Brexit. Then he can say it was the best available solution at the time (as with Brexit). But, that’s only true because it was so late in the day that other, better solutions had long since expired.
Johnson deliberately avoids tough choices and goes for maximum drama so he can appear powerful, but he lacks leadership. And that’s catastrophic in a pandemic, as the country has found out to its cost.
