Coronavirus: Former minister on North-South divide

Jake Berry tells Ridge he wants to see a “clear route” out of Tier 3 coronavirus restrictions, noting that much of the North is in the highest alert level.

He also calls for a “Northern COVID recovery plan” to help the economy recover from the pandemic.

    Lol I’m up north restrictions are ignored daily by lots of people, cold up here, it’s flu season, everyone has the cold…..oh wait sorry no they don’t they have covid, runny noses, sniffles,…I think we better destroy the entire country’s economy and kill off the elderly and then bring in rules that make Anti-sense all with the number 6 in them to portray satanic rituals that the public will unwittingly perform without question.

    JournaLIEsts creating fake news
    On Friday at the 'Slug and Lettuce' bar in Sheffield, a couple of press photographers ( Daily Mail, I think ) turned up and tried to encourage the customers not to socially distance, then took photos.
    I expect this to be used in propaganda against the public, especially northerners.
    Don't fall for the MSM LIES .

    The NHS dumped hundreds of elderly patients known to have covid back into care homes earlier this year, handing a death sentence to thousands more. They are doing it again. #clapforcovid

    No manufacturing means No Northern Powerhouse. Post Industrial Manchester is a total failure now built on football stadiums 🏟 and shopping centres 🛍 and now is Skid Row GB.

    Because 'North' and 'South' are at the opposite ends of a compass needle does not mean that they should be opposed to each other no more than should Oxford be opposed to Cambridge because one is to the west of the other or are Britain and Australia because the different hemispheres.The predjuices that are so obviously at work towards the North shouldn't be tolerated because of the mere fact of spatial location.Is pernicious snobbery north or south of respect?
