Boris Johnson, the former U.K. prime minister, struggled with comprehending some concepts and data during his time in office. This was evident in the effort required to ensure he understood particular graphs and pieces of information. Despite this, it is suggested that Johnson’s difficulty did not originate from a unique inability but rather from the challenging nature of the work involved.
In other news, the U.K. has one of the highest COVID-19 death tolls in Europe, with over 232,000 people recorded as dying from the virus. The public inquiry into Johnson’s actions during the pandemic will begin soon, with retired Judge Heather Hallett leading the investigation. The investigation is expected to last for three years and was agreed to by Johnson under significant pressure from grieving families who have expressed dissatisfaction with the evidence surrounding his actions.
