Boris Johnson, the former U.K. prime minister, struggled to comprehend certain concepts and data during his time in office. Despite this, it is believed that his difficulty was not caused by a unique inability but rather by the challenging nature of his work.
In other news, the U.K.’s COVID-19 death toll has reached over 232,000 people as of now. This places the country at the top of Europe’s list for deaths from the virus. Boris Johnson resigned as prime minister in September 2021 after being implicated in rule-breaking parties at his Downing Street residence during the pandemic. He will testify before an investigation led by retired Judge Heather Hallett this Christmas season. The inquiry is expected to take three years and was agreed upon by Johnson under intense pressure from grieving families who were dissatisfied with the evidence surrounding his actions.
