Boris Johnson is not hugely popular at the moment.

According to YouGov, he currently has a 57 per cent disapproval rating, which was up from just 26 per cent in mid April.

It seems people are frustrated with conflicting messages around coronavirus and lockdown rules, so Newcastle chef Max Gott wanted to make a big statement about his dissatisfaction.

While being interviewed on BBC News about the implementation of local lockdowns affecting his business Bistro Forty Six, the Geordie chef was sitting in front of a poster featuring different types of small birds – also known as β€œtits”.

But littered among the photos of colourful birds was a photo of the PM – essentially using a play on words to call the PM stupid.

People thought this juvenile humour was actually quite funny.

From 12:01am on Wednesday, residents of Newcastle, Gateshead, North and South Tyneside, Northumberland, Durham and Sunderland have been banned from meeting friends outside their bubble indoors.

It's also illegal for two households to mix inside or in a garden. Over the last few weeks, there's been growing discontent among the public and MPs at Johnson's strategy.
