Boris Johnson slammed by Vine caller for Ukraine policy

A vine caller has suggested Boris Johnson “forgot about his own country” as the Prime Minister’s record was opened for debate on the discussion show on Monday. The caller, Sylvia from Durham, acknowledged Mr Johnson had done a lot for Ukraine but pointed out the many crises which no face Britons at home. 

Sylvia told Jeremy Vine: “I don’t believe that he got the vaccine done.

“I believe that the medical people got that done. 

“I don’t believe that he is a nice person, I think he’s a liar and yes, he did a lot for that whole country [Ukraine], but he forgot about his own country.

“And a lot of people in that country are now suffering on his hands.”
