    Make an obvious statement no one can disagree with then try to pressure people to put their children in mortal danger. Considering Tory track record in the past 10 years I wouldn't trust them to look after a school tuck shop.

    Australia for many many years did very well to teach students over the air, !, I would say children can learn on line, "No Vaccine yet" many Children's parents Won't risk family life at all !, I won't ever risk my family "NEVER", !!!, and its possible that Children CAN bring Corvid-19 to the family home to kill off their parents, as I said NO vaccine, you have your answer to that…

    THE CITY inside London has never been English it uses different police look at the colours, and has its own rule even the Queen get escorted through it, wakes up, this is al la power play for you acquiescing to be slaves once again, after all, was it not man-made germ warfare contracted to American scientists I in the yuan labs? did they wrongly report and blame the chines public, and only change the narrative as the internet put pressure on them to start owning up to the truth? , I look forward to how many less die of the flue this year and there excuses for this? is staying indoors good for your general health?

    I'm enjoying watching the affluent, disappointed, increasingly desperate Left attempt to turn this crisis into some sort of worker's revolution. On our behalf, of course. Crack on, comrades, I've got plenty of popcorn.

    I hope you are aware that the number of death is much higher of that 34.000 (an italian repost estimate almost 50.000 death in UK). Why is happened? It's easy. If you had put aside your arrogance and if you had listened italian warning or, more simply, had carefully watched was happening in Italy, Spain or France, you could avoid all theese death. You could watch and learn from other country; instead, you acted late and badly. You should blame only yourself. And now, you continue pursuing a very strange strategy against corona-virus: for example, why you don't use mask especially in close enviroments? without a good strategy, you'll remain in a lockdown for much time. Stay strong UK
