Boris Johnson, the former U.K. prime minister, has struggled to understand certain concepts and data during his time in office. This was evident in the effort required to ensure he comprehended specific graphs and pieces of information. However, it is suggested that his difficulty did not stem from a unique inability but rather from the challenging nature of the work involved.
The U.K. currently has one of the highest COVID-19 death tolls in Europe, with over 232,000 people recorded as dying from the virus. Johnson resigned as prime minister in September 2022 after being implicated in rule-breaking parties at his Downing Street residence during the pandemic. He is now scheduled to testify in an investigation led by retired Judge Heather Hallett before Christmas. The public inquiry, which was agreed to by Johnson under significant pressure from grieving families who have expressed dissatisfaction with the evidence surrounding his actions, is predicted to last for three years.
