Is the main reason Boris has messed up this pandemic because he's been listening to right-wing virus sceptic loons ?

Everyone has messed up the pandemic because they ( and their advisers) are dealing with the unknown.
Boris hadn’t done significantly worse than most other leaders and considerably better than one in particular.

If Boris listened to so called right-wing virus sceptics he would not have put us into another lockdown . Most world governments have not handled the virus particularly well ad some of those governments that thought they handled it well to start with are now having problems. Thankfully we do not have a left wing government because they would have totally locked us down from day one and have been far stricter . Just look at some of the Australian state governments and some of the continental governments and what they had done .

When he became PM he was the puppet of Cummings and rather than making decisions which necessitated an ability to understand detail delegated them to Cumming's cabinet of 'weirdos and misfits.' He wants to be loved but then has to consider the views of right wing idiots, such as Mogg who grins and speaks of 'Happy British Fish,' He seems to have the intellect and forensic ability of a gold fish.

The extremely rich elderly, who are powerful and influence the government on policy, and who will one day be superceded by the politicians as they age and take their place, in large organisations and companies, are being protected at all costs. Imperial College are feeding the government extreme case scenario models on what they think is happening, mainly through a gut feeling I'm sure everyone thinks they have about how the world works. Humans greatest strength, and it's greatest weakness, is our ability to look for patterns in the natural world and suggest hypotheses. Any confirmation through feedback will only strengthen our belief in these theories, ignoring exceptions. Even if Boris had any doubts about what he was doing, he's been doing it for almost a year now; how hard is it going to be to be able to admit you're wrong at this stage? Can you imagine how angry people will be when they find out he is wrong?

He is surrounded by incompetence with hangers on that supported him and a dogma and he rewards them with cabinet positions they are at war with civil servants and constantly ignoring the advice that has so often saved Britain , they are a breed that cannot admit failure until it hits them in the face , they are constantly supporting themselves with false promises and of course the failure of others hindsight is a wonderful thing but total disaster is incompetence and to be honest no one can deny it who is British and human

He misunderstood on Herb Immunity which may be achieved via natural courses or vaccine injection. However, only vaccine injection is applicable to the virus. Unfortunate!!

The main reason Boris has messed up the pandemic is that he is totally incompetent. (OK, not totally - he is quite good at ancient Greek) He was put in charge of the Tory party by senior right-wingers to assist in their self-enrichment schemes like Brexit. We know we've been screwed, but people still vote for the bastards.

No, that would not be true. It is far more likely his failures are down to attempts at populism. Populism has worked for him so far - trying not to do things that would upset too many people or trying to do things that the loudest voices were baying for. There are two big problems with that:
1) A leader needs the strength to do what is RIGHT even if it is not popular.
2) 'Empty vessels make most sound' - The loudest voices tend not to contain the greatest substance. They may well include some who deny the reality of Covid-19, whether through extremist political views or stupidity or both. The general population is not well enough informed or always educated enough to make the sort of decisions our elected politicians should be making. Acting on populist wishes too much is dereliction of duty.
To be fair to Boris, he is trying to govern through uncharted territory. Do we have a current politician who could do better? I'd like to think so but have no idea who they might be.

If they are loons then what does that make him for listening to them?
