The media says Boris Johnson is now escaping from his crisis. Here are ten reasons why we shouldn’t let him off the hook.

  1. The Tories proclaimed the pandemic over and dumped restrictions. This week 149 local authorities reported an increase in cases. 
  2. Johnson went to Saudi Arabia to meet crown prince Mohammed bin Salman last week. Days earlier the state executed 81 men.  
  3. Assaults on refugees continue with home secretary Priti Patel pushing to send asylum seekers abroad for processing.
  4. While thousands died, the Tories enjoyed as many as 15 parties during lockdown
  5. The Tories will use their new Nationalities and Borders bill to criminalise refugees and strip people of British citizenship. 
  6. Johnson is pushing for more environmentally disastrous oil and gas exploration in the North Sea. 
  7. Tory MPs refused to vote for a motion in the House of Commons on Monday to suspend the contracts of DP World—the owner of P&O Ferries which is sacking 800 workers to replace them with cheaper staff.  
  8. The Tories’ Spring Statement won’t end the suffering caused by the cost of living crisis. 
  9. The Tories want to get rid of your right to protest—with their Police, Crime and Sentencing bill set to pass soon.  
  10. Johnson is ramping up the moves towards a wider war over Ukraine.

The rest of the media might have forgotten. We haven’t. Keep fighting Johnson.
