Global News published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson denies saying “let the bodies pile high” instead of impose COVID-19 lockdowns in UK” – below is their description.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson denied on Wednesday media reports that he had said he would rather have bodies piled “high in their thousands,” than order a third coronavirus lockdown.
Asked by opposition Labour Leader Keir Starmer whether he made the comments, Johnson told parliament: “No,” and called on Starmer to substantiate the allegations.
The Daily Mail newspaper on Sunday cited unidentified sources as saying that, in October, shortly after agreeing to a second lockdown, Johnson had told a meeting in Downing Street: “No more f***ing lockdowns – let the bodies pile high in their thousands.”
He earlier denied saying the words reported by several media organizations.
Starmer also grilled Johnson on questions regarding the funding for renovations at his Downing Street residence.
Johnson said he paid personally for the redecoration, although he did not clarify whether he had initially done so.
