With all the reported outrage in regard to our Prime Minister, I turned to my Bible and read this passage in John 8:3-11 New Living Translation:

As he (Jesus) was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery.

They put her in front of the crowd. “Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?”

They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger.

They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”

Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust. When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman.

Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”

“No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

It seems that the whole country is berating the Prime Minister for his many “sins”.

But perhaps the question we should be asking ourselves is — who of us is without sin in the matter of breaking the Covid rules/laws? As Jesus stated, let that person, if they exist, cast the first stone.

The truth is that none of us are innocent, even if it’s a “small” infringement of not wearing a mask or not wearing it properly on just one occasion. It’s still breaking the law and we are just as guilty.

Whatever his faults, he is still the elected prime minister and party leader. Is there anyone among the political class that could have done better? I doubt it.

Boris is not perfect but neither are any of the MPs elected to serve us.

Like many, they rant and rave about this that and the other; so many have an opinion about so many issues, but that is all they have.

Please let us all move on. There are so many more important issues that need to be addressed, such as how the massive debt that has accumulated by the Treasury going to be repaid?
