Coronavirus: Labour moves to two or three weeks lockdown to limit COVID spread in England

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has called for a two or three week ‘circuit break’ of full lockdown for England.

He says this is to tackle rising coronavirus infections and hospital admissions across the United Kingdom, as winter approaches.

He said this would mean ‘sacrifices across the country’ but would not mean school closures.

    The one thing he didn't cover was Non-Essential shops, They serve Thousands of people on a daily basis FAR MORE than Pubs and restaurants do, He merely only stated non essential offices, No point in doing this "Circuit Break" if your going to keep (In My Opinion) The biggest spreading sector in the country open for business.

    The graph they showed yesterday at the press conference showed rising cases in 10-19 year olds. It doesn't take a genius to figure out the cause, which happens to be the ONLY thing they refuse to close.

    I have enough ongoing lockdown, government could do massive test, STOP spreading of infection in ONE GO, THEN suppress it until vaccine come out. There is no way suppress the infection without proper track and tract. Suppress for a short period time then loose and then suppress again, this would never end! I want to work, like working normally, properly.

    What was the median age of death again?
    What's the infection survival rate by age groups?
    What's the false positive testing rate?
    Death from ANY cause within 28 days of a positive test?

    In May we had 5k cases per day and over 1k deaths per day now we're getting 17k cases per day and 140 deaths per day if that's not proof that its getting weaker i don't know what is and the 17k cases was almost 2 weeks ago know a 140 deaths out of 17k cases is most probably the worst its gonna get at this point

    The problem with the vast majority of politicians is none of them have ever done anything with their lives. They are pretty much useless at everything. The only reason they have their job is because daddy could afford to send them to the right schools and get them in the right social circles. How many of them have ever run a successful business? Heck how many have even had a job outside of politics? They have a lifestyle incomparable to any UK citizen. That's why until their lifestyles are impacted, nothing will change and we will be subject to whatever the hell they want

    I'd put money on Labour being adverse to a lock down if Boris had suggested it. School boys.
