Covid pitting nation against nation in UK

Politicians across the country are arguing over the extent and severity of any new coronavirus rules. (Subscribe:

At Prime Minister’s Questions, Boris Johnson said putting more areas in the north of England into the very high tier of restrictions would avoid the “misery of another national lockdown”. But Greater Manchester’s Mayor said those plans are fundamentally flawed.

Meanwhile, Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer said a tougher national circuit break for England was now the only solution.

In the last 24 hours, there have been 19,724 new cases of Covid diagnosed in the UK and 137 deaths confirmed in that time. The total number of deaths so far from Covid is 43,155.

We spoke to Wales’ First Minister Mark Drakeford, Conservative MP for Bolton West Chris Green, and SAGE scientist Professor Graham Medley.

    I live in Western Australia. We closed our borders to the rest of the country months back. We live a regular life while covid affects the east coast which has restrictions. I say to Wales close your borders completely. It's easier to contact trace your own cases while lifting your own restrictions as you get down to zero cases.

    In the 2008 crash we gave them 40 trillion to stay open, now they are coming back for all of it. Before the BANKSTERS bring in their new system, they must first destroy the old. Who is big enough to make most country's and media do their bidding? 78 country's are in debt to the IMF, which the four biggest banks run. Think this is just tin hat stuff? Watch this.

    In Asian countries and Germany, Covid is dealt with as an epidemic that needs to be contained and put under control, while in some country, where the great majority of the people are not used to speaking German, French or any Asian languages, Covid is used by top state head as a tool to exhibit how politicians' stupidity could be maximised to infinity. 😂🤐😐

    Can tell you right now, a very small percentage of people in my area of merseyside are following the new rules. Collectively we are not having it!!!

    One has to wonder if the positive (covid flu cases) numbers have went up since the perfidious flu vaccinators have been out on the warpath!? Any increase in infections ie colds/flu in care homes since the poison distribution!? Just asking and would be good to know if any information was collected etc!?!?

    It's not the virus that divides the UK, it's the reckless and incompetent WM policy. Johnson and his EtonMess running the UK down.

    Don't distroy the economy. What is the point if the country get into too much debt to survive. It will go bankrupt or the young will have to pay until they die.

    The UK is made up of four nations, that have come together to form a country. Each has particular and specific powers. That has to be recognised and respected. It's not a big ask. Parking and planning rules vary from county to county, borough to borough. So it's not that difficult to understand. Limiting travel is an important part of a containment and prevention strategy, so although this has an impact, is really not difficult to understand.
