A friend of mine has suggested that because this lockdown is so much
more fractious than the first one, perhaps we should all go out onto our
doorsteps at 8pm each Thursday and boo the Prime Minister.

(To be clear, I don't think we should really do that and nor does he,
but the idea made me laugh.)

All those who refuse will be accused of being afraid to say boo to a
goose...

How would one express that one thinks he doesn't know what he's doing?
My belief that he doesn't know what he's doing isn't meant to be
critical, I just think it's a fact.

When, once, reference was made to a statesman almost universally
recognized as one of the villains of this century, in order to
induce him to a negative judgment, he replied: "My situation is
so different from his, that it is not for me to pass judgment".
