Boris Johnson has turned to Germany for help to rescue the UK’s troubled plans for a contact-tracing app to curb coronavirus – despite claiming it’s technology does not work properly.

Berlin’s ambassador in London has revealed his government had “discussed possible cooperation” with Matt Hancock, the health secretary.

“Germany’s corona app has been up and running since 16 June,” Andreas Michaelis tweeted, adding: “Experts have intensified contacts and look into moving forward together”.

The move comes despite the prime minister refusing to retract a much-ridiculed claim that “no country currently has a functioning track and trace app”.

Australia's is still borked, as far as I know. Doesn't work properly on iPhones.

Is anyone surprised? This is not news. As I have been saying for years that is why the tories wanted Brexit. The EU was investigating the corruption concerning off-shore accounts and was getting too close.

Yeah. I think I mentioned something along those lines last year (or was the year before?).

You cant get anymore sleazier than the present UK government:

It's taken just 12 months for Boris Johnson to create a government of sleaze
From Dominic Cummings to dodgy business deals, the prime minister’s circle behave as if the rules simply don’t apply to them

It took the last Tory government the best part of 18 years to become mired in sleaze, but Boris Johnson’s administration is smelling of it already. Whether doling out lucrative contracts, helping billionaire property developers cut costs, or handing out lifetime seats in the House of Lords, the guiding principle seems to be brazen cronyism, coupled with the arrogance of those who believe they are untouchable and that rules are for little people.

This week came word of at least £156m of taxpayers’ money wasted on 50 million face masks deemed unsuitable for the NHS. They were bought from a private equity firm through a company that had no track record of producing personal protective equipment – or indeed anything for that matter – and that had a share capital of just £100. But this company, Prospermill, had a crucial asset. It was co-owned by one Andrew Mills, adviser to the government, staunch Brexiteer and cheerleader for international trade secretary, Liz Truss.


Post-Brexit is looking even grimmer.

It's just the US-ification of British politics. The SNP are very cozy with Exon too.

What has the naughty boy now has been up to?

No 10 denies reports Boris Johnson went on secret Italy trip
Minister also rejects airport’s statement PM flew into Perugia in past fortnight

One of Boris Johnson’s ministers has denied a report in the Italian media that the UK prime minister made a secret trip to the country less than a fortnight ago, a claim Downing Street has also rejected as “completely untrue”.

Asked if Johnson had landed in Perugia in the past two weeks, which the Umbrian airport said had happened in a statement, Grant Shapps, the transport minister, told Sky News: “Not that I’m aware of. I think it’s mistaken, as far as I’m aware.”

The Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported on the alleged trip after the Barcelona footballer Luis Suárez flew into Perugia on 17 September. The airport put out a press release saying that as well as Suárez, Johnson had also arrived there in recent days.

La Repubblica said that after it made inquiries about the Johnson trip, the airport, San Francesco d’Assisi, confirmed he had landed there during the week before Suárez.

The newspaper cited one airport staff member as saying the British PM arrived either on 11 September, a Friday, or the day before. Another source said he had arrived “on Friday 11 September at 2pm and left on Monday 14 September 14th at 7.45am”.
=================================

The pictures of Johnson at the airport suggested he went to Italy without a police escort. According to another passenger on the flight back to the UK, Johnson was on his own, apparently without any luggage and very much the worse for wear
A dirty weekend? :naughty:
