Boris Johnson, the former U.K. prime minister, struggled to understand certain concepts and data during his tenure in office. This was apparent in the difficulty he encountered when trying to comprehend specific graphs and information. However, it is suggested that the prime minister’s challenges did not stem from a unique incapacity but rather from the challenging nature of the work involved.
In recent news, the U.K.’s COVID-19 death toll has reached over 232,000 people, making it one of the highest in Europe. The public inquiry into Johnson’s actions during the pandemic is set to begin before Christmas, with retired Judge Heather Hallett leading the investigation. The probe is expected to take three years and was agreed to by Johnson under intense pressure from grieving families who have expressed dissatisfaction with the evidence surrounding his actions.
