The above is a link to an article about a senior citizen who’s struggling financially and Boris’ comment on it. To make it easier for you I copied and paste a few lines.
In an interview on ITV’s Good Morning Britain the prime minister was told of a 77-year-old pensioner who rode the bus because she could not afford heating.
“To cut down on spending, Elsie has resorted to eating one meal a day. She’s losing weight, she’s 77,” host Susanna Reid said.
“She goes to the supermarket at the end of the day to buy yellow sticker discounted items.
“She gets up early in the morning to use her Freedom bus pass to stay on buses all day to avoid using energy at home. What else should Elise cut back on?
The prime minister replied: “Just to remind you that the 24 hour freedom bus pass was something that I introduced.”
Clarification: standard pensioners bus pass is valid after 9.30am in the UK.
It probably wasn’t very appropriate but I laughed while reading it. Boris is an excellent example of a man who doesn’t mask and yet is successful, so possibly we, autistics, should give him some more credit? Still that comment fills me with dread becase I’m here worried the last several months about my ability to see things from other people perspective and he, a prime minister, says whatever he feels like!
I always liked Boris for being relaxed. Now I’m not so sure.
