SICK leftie trolls have today accused Boris Johnson of deliberately inducing his fiancee's labour to distract from the coronavirus crisis.
The Prime Minister is today celebrating after Carrie Symonds gave birth in a London hospital this morning.

Both mum, 32, and baby are “doing very well” earlier this morning following the birth – which came several weeks early.
But some have shamelessly accused him of inducing the labour to deliberately miss PMQs today.
One person wrote online: “Baby arrived just in time to avoid PMQs. Was birth induced?”
Another added: “Ah, they’ve induced Carrie to give him an excuse.”
A Twitter user wrote: “Not a summer baby after all? Surely not induced? Am I really that cynical now?”
Ruth Cadbury, Labour MP for Brentford and Isleworth, wrote: “It appears Boris Johnson has found yet another excuse to miss PMQs.”
She later deleted the tweet and added: "So Boris Johnson has a good excuse to miss PMQs today – congratulations!"
Mr Johnson was present at the birth of his baby son this morning – just days after he fought his coronavirus battle.
His dad, Stanley Johnson, said he was “absolutely delighted” and “thrilled” by the birth of his grandson.
It comes just 16 days after Boris, 55, fought for his life in intensive care with coronavirus – and after Carrie’s own fight with the deadly bug.
While the new arrival is Ms Symond’s first child, it is believed to be Mr Johnson’s sixth – and is his third son.
He has four children with ex-wife Marina Wheeler – two sons Milo, 24, and Theodore, 20, and two daughters Lara, 26, and Cassia, 22.
Boris also has another daughter, Stephanie, born in 2009, after an affair with art consultant Helen Macintyre.
A spokesman for the couple said: “The Prime Minister and Ms Symonds are thrilled to announce the birth of a healthy baby boy at a London hospital earlier this morning. Both mother and baby are doing very well.
“The PM and Ms Symonds would like to thank the fantastic NHS maternity team.”
