To a certain extent, I agree with you. But the courts would still probably be dealing with the amount of court cases against the government that would've unleashed. To reiterate, people don't 'get it' now, what leads you to believe they would've been any more receptive in January?If we had closed our borders in January to prevent the widespread introduction of the virus into the UK we might still be having some sort of normal life now with no lockdown and our economy ticking over.
In an age where some people need a risk assessment to sit at a desk I'm disappointed the powers that be didn't see this coming, because I did.
As I've said before in one of these threads, inconveniencing a couple of hundred thousand travellers then was preferable to locking down 60M residents now.
We are paying the price now for failing to be decisive in January.
