Boris Johnson, the former U.K. prime minister, struggled with comprehending some concepts and data during his time in office. Despite this, it is believed that his difficulty did not arise from a unique inability but rather from the challenging nature of the work involved.
In Europe, the U.K. has one of the highest COVID-19 death tolls, with over 232,000 people recorded as dying from the virus. Johnson resigned as prime minister in September 2022 after being implicated in rule-breaking parties at his Downing Street residence during the pandemic. He is scheduled to testify in an investigation led by retired Judge Heather Hallett before Christmas. The public inquiry was agreed to by Johnson under significant pressure from grieving families who expressed dissatisfaction with the evidence surrounding his actions.
