Nick Ferrari exploded at Prime Minister Boris Johnson during a fiery interview on LBC this morning. Ferrari pointed out a series of “inconsistencies” in the Government’s plan to ease the country’s lockdown measures. He said: “I can go to the pub but I can’t go to the gym, why?”
Ferrari added: “I can have a haircut tomorow but not go to a nail bar, why?
“I can have a driving lesson, but I can’t walk my daughter down the aisle at her wedding.
“You’re an intelligent man, how have these come about?”
Boris Johnson said that the measures were chosen as the best way to fight the pandemic.
