Three opinion polls released in Britain on Saturday showed support falling for Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party, as public confidence in the government's handling of the coronavirus pandemic declines.

However, the figures are unlikely to be an immediate concern for Johnson, who does not need to hold an election until 2024 after winning a comfortable parliamentary majority in December. Surveys for Deltapoll and Opinium, both conducted on June 4-5, showed the Conservative lead narrowing to three percentage points.

Always shite.

Is it just me or does this pic make Boris look a more insane Trump? Holy sh*t.


Might have something to do with them being completely incompetent and a bunch of lying bar stewards . Maybe

As a point of reference around 90% of Kiwis agree with our government’s handling of the pandemic. Note that it helps in these situations to have the confidence of the people.

40 thousand deaths , Waterloo will be a joke

All Right Wing extremeists leaders have mimanaged Covid-19 response. Brazil, Hungry, The USA, The UK, India......Despotic Leaders have lied and misled the country. BorisJohnson BorisJohnson Trump realDonaldTrump narendramodi rashtrapatibhvn

what about opposition to China. the CCP caused this crisis. remember?

With our voting system they would still get in to Gov. with this level of poll,with a working majority.That's how foolish our voting system is!!!

Defo all his fault

No surprise really, what with Boris demonstrably being a complete idiot. Get rid Conservatives

Not after today...the left have shown their true colours yet least another 10 years

hare_brain Words from his previous boss:

do not link COVID with loss of popularity. People just finally get what these useless politicians are about.

Sounds like one of the CCP 'consequences'

F% Boris and his tribe

Exile trump and Johnson somewhere nasty

Imagine the alarm to con voters when they realised their own PM and party was willing to let them die.😱
