    Which of itself could be dangerous. False sense of security etc.

    Putin is stealing Trump's thunder. I'm sure announcing a false vaccine was one of his main relection ploys.

    I believe the first effective development in combating covid19's uglier effects will be in the form of a therapeutic. I simply cannot see a vaccine in the next year or so, but I can see a mitigating prescription which greatly nullifies the effects of Covid...

    same reason we have the worst excess death rate in Europe. Led by donkeys. Mainly attributed to us delaying the lockdown so late it seems and ballsing up the reopen too.

    Still, Boris, what a scamp he is eh.

    We are the worst amongst our peers. They locked down harder and earlier than us.

    Schools are also opened overseas.- allows people to head back to work - still looking for reasons not to open here.

    Scaremongering means people are not going out - this is not just the media - a lot of Karen’s out there

    WFH - not supporting businesses - London’s a ghost town

    I’ll add another - no targeted support - people in arts/aviation among others ain’t going to be spending disposable income

    You do not accept that an earlier and stronger lockdown that reduced the infection rate in our country would have allowed us to open up earlier and avoided such a big slump?

    I think the other things you have mentioned may have played some part but not as much as this governments ineptness.

    Our infection Is lower than others In that list.

    Stronger lockdown would have made it worse


    Edit - the gov are inept and reactive to polls as well, which doesn’t help

    Do you think Ed even tried to conceal his delight when he wrote that tweet?

    The voyeuristic nature of journalists is painful, I agree

    Earlier and stronger lockdown would have meant we opened up sooner and avoided some of the damage in my mind.

    This is so basic.

    I can’t understand people who don’t understand this

    GDP was already on the way down even before Covid because of the 'B' word. It's not the main contributor but it is a factor.

    We can’t even get the deaths correct, I don’t trust the gov to do anything correctly

    We would have damaged more jobs.

    2/3 more weeks with no income would have seen more damage.

    we should have followed Sweden, minus the care home error - which I think was the plan till Neil Fergurson fired up the spectrum ZX and randomly inserted some number and released them.

    Don’t worry, we’ve got Brexit coming to sort it all out. What’s a few billion pounds of deficit once the £350 million a week from the side of Johnson and Gove’s bus starts rolling in?
