Mr. Kevin Maguire said Boris Johnson and his gang are blaming the Ukraine war for the cost-of-living crisis that began long before the invasion occurred.

Hiding behind Ukraine to blame the war for a costly disaster that began long before Putin’s invasion is a brazen politics from a Conservative regime that exploits every crisis as a chance.
