COVID-19 UK: Two thirds of British people support national ‘circuit breaker’ lockdown

The majority of British people support a two-week “circuit breaker” lockdown, according to a poll by YouGov for Sky News.

When asked whether they trust Boris Johnson to make the right decisions about the pandemic, 61% said no.

Most people said they do not support relaxing lockdown measures for younger people.

    Most of the people polled watch sky and no doubt work in the public sector where they get paid whether they work or not. #fakenews

    Really, everyone I speak with suggests differently, no one wants a lockdown and think it would catastrophic to do so. Must have done this poll in champagne drinking north London boroughs. And using YouGov poll says it all 😂

    No one supports lockdowns outside the cities.Bullshit survey.Lockdowns just kick the can down the road.Our politicians did nothing but kick the Brexit can for 3 years,delaying the inevitable.Instead of being decisive and going for herd immunity,we are stuck in a cycle of stop start that delays the inevitable and destroys our way of life.History will judge us as being the most cowardly bunch of foolsto call themselves British.

    Older people tend to do surveys, and they own their house, have a nice pension, and won't be affected by the economic and social disaster, hence the answers. But they WILL be affected by economic and social collapse through crime, food shortages and prices increases!

    It's amazing how gullable the public must be if they believe the bs rhetoric propaganda being spouted from their TV sets.

    The media loves to spread fear through lies.
