Broadcaster Mark Dolan let off a damming assessment of Boris Johnson in a phenomenal takedown of the Prime Minister’s leadership abilities. In a brutal takedown, the talkRADIO host said Britons were “promised Winston Churchill” but instead “got Neville Chamberlain.” Mr Dolan went on to brand Mr Johnson as “so weak” and “so keen to please” that he has failed to lead the country properly throughout the pandemic.
Mr Dolan said: “This is a Prime Minister, so weak, so keen to please, so willing to say yes to everyone that he has gone against his own libertarian principles to lock the country down three times over with devastating consequences and debatable rewards.
“History may judge that he was right to push back but, in the end, he rolled over.”
The talkRADIO host added: “In December 2019 the public were promised a swashbuckling, dynamic, confident, no-nonsense premier – they were promised Winston Churchill and they got Neville Chamberlain!”
The radio host went on to stress that “Dominic Cummings will damage the Prime Minister but not destroy him”, adding “his worst enemy is not Dominic Cummings, it is himself!”

The radio host added: “At a time of national crisis it is one person that must lead and one person that must make the tough decisions.
“Something that Johnson’s hero Churchill famously did in the Second World War.
And then in a passionate demand, Dolan said: “So it’s time now to tune out from all these advisors, government by committee, listen to yourself…. the public didn’t elect political advisors, SAGE or your partner to run Britain, they elected you!”
In damming concluding statement Dolan warned: “And if you cannot rise to the challenge, there is a guy next door at No.11 who will happily do it for you.”
Boris Johnson told to 'get a grip' on Cummings row by Jones
The brutal takedown comes as Boris faces off a raft of allegations of malpractice and comments he allegedly made in regards to the pandemic death toll.
Explosive claims have been made suggesting the Prime Minister said he would rather bodies “piled high in their thousands” than order another lockdown last autumn – The Daily Mail who broke the story cited unidentified sources, claiming he told a Downing Street meeting: “No more f****ng lockdowns – let the bodies pile high in their thousands.”
These claims have now been endorsed by ITV and the BBC who claim to have confirmed the comments with their own sources.
Boris Johnson and members of his team have repeatedly denied that the PM made such outlandish statements and on Monday, Mr Johnson said: “I think the important thing, I think, that people want us to get on and do as a Government is to make sure that the lockdowns work, and they have.”

It comes as former aide Dominic Cummings unleashed a torrent of allegations at the PM in a blog post on his personal website after he was blamed for leaking text messages to the press between James Dyson and Boris Johnson.
Mr Cummings alleged that Boris Johnson had a plan to get Conservative Party donors to fund renovations at his Downing Street flat, he branded Mr Johnson’s plans as “unethical, foolish, possibly illegal” in a stinging allegation.
The Daily Mail claimed the Conservatives had used £58,000 of donated party funds for the redecoration of Mr Johnson’s flat above No.11 in a scandal that has swamped Number 10 for days.
No donation has been declared to the Electoral Commission or on the register of ministerial interests.
