I have to say that some of the comments on here have stepped beyond the mark of acceptability. I get how Bucks can irritate and frustrate, but I don’t think there’s a need for the constant mud slinging at his mental health. I don’t think he brings it up for guilt tripping. I don’t see the need for him to produce proof of it and I wish people would be more forgiving. I have probably failed here, so I don’t want to assume superiority to anyone.
Having said that, I wish Bucks would do the same in return and be charitable with others at times. I get he might balk at the idea of being charitable to Gurnelista, but maybe he could be so to others when they air views which disagree. Things like being critical of Brexit does not make you hate the UK, nor does criticising Johnson’s handling of coronavirus. Yet that is treated on the same level as the jibes at mental health.
I don’t see what DeereyMe is revealing except for a dislike of how the Tories have handled the pandemic, on the whole. It is not some cardinal sin to see that as an issue. I see the overall handling as poor, with the exception of vaccine rollout. The lockdowns have been dithering, they come later than they should and too often the government hits out at the opposition for calling for better measures and then u-turns. It all seems calamitous and the size of the death toll is very worrying and points to it being mismanaged.
Of course you can disagree, but in a society where opposing viewpoints are welcome, there should be room to think otherwise. I don’t see the issue with people calling out Johnson, because he’s the PM, not our mate from down the pub. If you think it’s incorrect criticism, fine, but I don’t see the problem with anyone calling him out. Maybe there is a bias here, but that’s not the fault of anyone here. The issues to you come from the jibes and sniping about you, not disagreeing about Johnson.
