Covid-19 crisis proved there’s society: Boris differs with Thatcher

Mar 30, 2020 20:03 IST

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is self-isolating after testing positive for the coronavirus, took to social media once again and in a significant departure from the Conservative Party roots and former prime minister Margaret Thatcher's infamous declaration that "there is no such thing as society", the British Prime Minister delivered a contradictory message as he asked public to follow social distancing norms to help collectively control the spread of the deadly virus. “We are going to do it, we are going to do it together. One thing I think the coronavirus crisis has already proved is that there really is such a thing as society," he said in a video posted on Twitter on Sunday evening.
