Kathy Burke hits out at 'charlatan' Boris Johnson for his response to the coronavirus
Kathy Burke has branded Boris Johnson a “charlatan” and a “shambles of a human” for his response to the coronavirus crisis.
The Kevin and Perry star launched an expletive-ridden attack on the UK prime minister following his latest announcement, bringing an end to lockdown and changing advice from “Stay at home” to “Stay alert”, and asking the public to “use common sense”.
Outspoken comedian Burke, 55, tweeted: “It’s common sense not to vote Tory in the first f***ing place. What a s*** show.”

She added: “I don’t usually block. People have called me all the fat c***s under the sun on here and I still don’t block. But if you come here telling me you like that shambles of a human and all his c***y mates you can f*** right off.”
Burke went on: “I said many a time that Boris will never be PM cos he’s a f***ing charlatan and people have enough common sense to see that.”
The Absolutely Fabulous star was not the only comedian to mock the prime minister on social media.
Matt Lucas released his own version of Johnson’s speech. It has been retweeted over 70,000 times.
The Little Britain star updated the lyrics to his comedy tune Thank You Baked Potato with advice on his to stay safe from coronavirus, and released it as charity single with all proceeds going to FeedNHS.
