I'm glad someone else thought that, too.

Allegedly, he'll be video-conferencing from home, but it does give him an excuse not to do any of that pesky non-stage managed stuff for a significant amount of the time that parliament isn't in session.

Our part-time PM has coronavirus, according to multiple news outlets.

Contact tracing his little black book may prove interesting.

But on a more serious note, hopefully his missus and the baby will be fine.
That's scotched the rumour that marching powder might offer protection.

Call me a suspicious, uncaring ol' bastard if you like, but...saves him doing difficult interviews and press briefings, eh, kids? You know how much he loves those. :wink:
I'd agree, if it weren't for 1 thing - this is a one-shot excuse, and if it IS an excuse then he's taken it early, will be non-infectious next week and back in front of the cameras more or less when things are expected to start peaking. If this is a wheeze, it's a "classic Dom" one.

It's well known that I am no fan of our Prime Minister, but those complaining that he's had a test when others haven't need to give their heads a wobble. He's Prime Minister for flips sake!

It wouldn't have mattered if it was him, Corbyn, Farage or Bruno Brookes as Prime Minister, they're always going to want to make sure about the one in charge isn't likely to become delirious in the middle of Cobra, announce to everybody he's Merlin the Happy Pig, and start his next press conference with the words "Zebra jam jar marzipan balloon wheeeeeeee" before outlawing lemon curd.

He has probably been tested every day or two due to his position. However, the fact that front line health workers cannot get tested is, I agree, wholly unacceptable.

I'm old enough to remember when the suggestion that any of these four could be PM would be met by gales of laughter.

Not funny, is it?

There's one of them would make a decent fist of it.
