On Wednesday, Mr Johnson cancelled a planned trip to Lancashire as a member of his family had tested positive for coronavirus. Mr Johnson’s premiership looks increasingly beleaguered after the scandal over a lockdown party in the Downing Street garden in May 2020.
However, addressing Mr Johnson directly, Dan Wotton slammed the Prime Minister arguing his absence made him look like a “lame duck” that had “admitted defeat”.
He said: “Boris front up, hiding from your own people is beneath you literally cowering away in the Downing Street flat.
“You claim someone in your family we don’t know who has tested positive for coronavirus.
“That is the worst possible thing you could do right now.
“It’s not even the covid law so it makes you look like you’ve admitted defeat, it makes you look like a lame duck.”
Mr Wootton, a self-confessed lockdown sceptic, claimed that Mr Johnson’s absence was coming at the time when the covid news was becoming more positive.
He said: “Daily covid cases have fallen nearly 40 percent in the last week showing that our Omicron wave is literally collapsing.
“We’ve made countries such as the Netherlands and France that plunged themselves into pre-Christmas lockdowns with the most dystopian restrictions look ridiculous.”
Mr Wootton said that Mr Johnson was leaving his fate in the hands of Rishi Sunak who had the power to “torpedo” his premiership by resigning himself.
He said: “This is too important a time for the UK to stutter on with a leader without authority so you must claim the agenda back.
“If you continue on this path I think you’ve got five months max left as Prime Minister.”
Mr Wootton also predicted that the Conservatives are likely to do badly in May’s local elections and Sir Keir Starmer will capitalise.

He said: “You’re facing an utter mauling in may’s local elections.
“The utterly hopeless leader of no opposition Keir Starmer has somehow eked out a 10 point lead in the polls.
“Let’s be honest nobody wants a Prime Minister Starmer not even his own deputy.”
