what and step into the Liverpool, Manchester Birmingham bubbles. No-what he needs to ask them is how much they will tolerate in the short term without the Burnham Mantra we've all got to suffer. We had that under Brown remember? Burnham's Mantra is purely we've all got to suffer equally- well we didn't the last time. Moreover it's really undermining the devolution concept of local control-when it hurts they all want to blame some one centrally and at the moment that is Boris. Nope they wanted control- they've got it now it's time step up to the Oche. Bunch of cowards the lot of them, electorally at least. At the moment the outbreaks are confined to cities/Local urbans where there is a lot of mixing one way or the other.Boris ignores the backbenchers at his peril. He needs to step out of the Londoncentric bubble and quite frankly start binning some people. A good start would be Hancock. I think the back benchers expressing concerns have the true mood of the country.
The current thinking that Children won't be affected, that badly, young people as well undermines the shielding concept and the current concept that it can be an annual event is rather worse. But we remain at a lowish mortality rate. I have to say that whatever their shortcomings the current crop of Ministers are being hit with something unprecedented and it's no use saying "we could have done better"
Biggest word in the English Language is IF. Worst of all I don't particularly like Trump, but he's mentioning two things that don't seem to be questioned by MSM. China and WHO. That stinks to high heaven.
