The Prime Minister Boris Johnson is facing scrutiny this week, after it was claimed by the Daily Mail and ITV that he had said he wouldn’t enforce a third lockdown, instead preferring to “let the bodies pile high in their thousands”.

A new report also claims that the PM said he would let coronavirus “rip” through the country.

It’s just the latest in a string of stories that have got the PM on the ropes, with Johnson also facing criticism for a number of other reasons.

With pressure building, the Cabinet are set to meet today (April 27, 2021).

One of those leaping to Johnson's defence was UK Secretary of State for (ironically) Defence, Ben Wallace MP. He spoke to Good Morning Britain about the accusations, claiming that “nobody” believed them.

The claims came after it was alleged Johnson had been using funds to refurbish his Downing Street flat, that should have instead been coming directly from his pockets.

Labour demanded a “full investigation” into the matter, whilst aides at Downing Street have been doing their best to try and bury the story.

Failing to declare who has paid for the work, Johnson could be in legal hot waters.

Elsewhere in politics, the European Parliament are to vote to ratify the EU-UK trade and cooperation agreement that was provisionally applied towards the end of 2020, to avoid a no-deal outcome.

MEPs are expected to vote in favour of the deal, so that proceedings can officially move forward. It will mark a historic moment not only for Britain, but for the rest of the world and especially our European cousins.

Ursula von der Leyen thinks that the UK could be punished however... 

Manfred Weber went one step further, saying that whilst he will vote in favour of the deal, he and others in the European Union “do not trust Boris Johnson’s government”.

It’s going to be a wild week for the PM indeed…
