Sick lies from sick people

Boris Johnson on the UK’s Covid death toll (one of the highest per capita in the world):

“What I can tell you is that we truly did everything we could, and continue to do everything we can, to minimise loss of life and to minimise suffering.” [1]

Amnesty International on just the case of deaths in care homes in the first wave:

“totally avoidable” and “monumental scandal”.

One of them is lying their head off.

Also one of them is connected to a small group of people who have received large (massive) and lucrative contracts as a result of UK gov. ‘efforts’ to ‘minimise suffering’.

Guess which one is lying.

These people have taken cynicism and greed and lying to levels that even a hardened cynic like me could never have believed possible.
