    It’s so simple … if the Tory government had rubbed the neurons in their brain cells in the past decades and understood the importance of investing in public healthcare, we would not be in this mess now. Any government, in any country and in any age MUST base their priorities on three things… humans need to eat, keep healthy and keep warm. The rest follows naturally.

    1 term Boris. It's probably for the best, after he's done he can be a decent father to his little baby that he probably conceived to gain favour with the electorate to show he's a regular family man. 👋

    The rich an powerful always try to make the best balanced decision in a national crisis (bar war) You install whatever is necessary to provide the health for the population regardless of cost. The amount spent on the track & trace could gone to low income families esp when offered to have it running for free from NI yet wasted with a faulty outcome. Those who earn 80k making decisions for those on 18k have no idea what life they live. Install local working class people to educate you an show you what is the best way to budget money. We went through 2 WW an recovered that surely were a much higher cost to the economy. Battle down the hatches folks, this ongoing virus War will only esculate in the months to come. Stay safe an look out for others.

    Utter incompetence. A national circuit breaker would see more compliance in hotspots who wouldn't feel picked on, and reduce numbers uniformly (unlike the see saw to be) so maybe the pocket lining Micky mouse outfits for track, test,and trace can finally do the task they should have been doing of controlling the virus from the outset.

    If this virus came from China then why has the world not punish them for this, thousands of lives lost, suicides, homes lost etc etc, China needs punishing for this.

    What about access and availability of testing to us commoners outside London? Even his accent is not reassuring.

    How about suggesting to the British people that they just use their common sense? Nothing else is going to work.

    Can see Cummings has scripted the first 2 minutes of this speech highlighting just how 'well' this Gov has been working with local councils to offer packages and giving them a little pat on the head for being good little servants… How dare Manchester try to defend themselves!

    Interesting how they are now calling it an Australian exit. Wherever happened to leaving under WTO rules? Will a journalist pick up on this new choice of words?
