'The UK had surpassed the 100,000 deaths mark, which really was a grim moment in the pandemic. A few people made remarks suggesting this cartoon was unfair, but I don't think it is. That said, Johnson is obviously not responsible for 100,000 deaths, but I'm damn sure he and his government, with their slowness, are responsible for very many.' Peter Brookes
