Does anyone really know what is happening as far as the English covid 19 tier system is concerned? I really don’t think that the Prime Minister does as he seems to weeble and wobble about with no sense of direction or grip. Now I understand the argument that Covid restrictions cause harm. I do get that but releasing the restrictions too much too soon will, in my view, undo the clear gains we, as a nation, are making in trying to control the spread of the virus. I might be more inclined to listen to the complaining MPs, mostly Tories, if they weren’t clearly self serving and short term nimbyism. None of them, to my knowledge, has actually come up with any alternate plan that will prevent the hospitals from being overrun during the winter with Covid so that other patients are going to suffer.
Either Covid is a threat or it is not. I believe that it is and so in my view we should do everything to try and ameliorate that threat. Of course I may have a different view if my business was going down the pan because of Covid restrictions and that is very understandable. This is why we are supposed to have leaders with sufficient backbone to take the difficult decisions in the national interest. Unfortunately, we don’t seem to be blessed with too many of them in our current government …starting from the top.
