Must have been...

Interesting to see such a blunt article in the Spectator: https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/boris-johnson...

These briefings are getting worse by the day... The other day, Boris seemed not to be able to answer a question about whether sufficient resources existed for a key policy (monitoring of 14-day quarantine for holiday returnees). After some awkward glances, the answer was fielded to the public health advisor.

Today, Boris took it upon himself to tell his advisors which questions they could and couldn’t answer. Came across as grossly arrogant.

We really are into donkey leadership territory...

Will people be able to do a six-person bbq even if there is no access to the garden aside from through the house?

To be fair, our country's fatness meant that the rise in life expectancy had already stalled. I don't think it is unreasonable to assume that this will also make our COVID outcomes worse too.

Strange when you think that people are happy to suspend their lives and lose their jobs to stop themselves getting a virus which kills under 1% of those it infects, but many of the same people will do very little in the way of eating less and exercising more - when doing so would add decades to their life expectancy...

Is nationalism not a teleology of sorts?

Will it be that easy though? When you leave a job, you become a useful excuse for everything that went wrong before you left.

If people start to blame decisions behind the high death figure on him, he might not be able to come back easily.

I wonder if other successful ideologies have chosen the same model, for example:
- Eden: Imperial Britain
- Incarnation of evil: EU
- Epic battle... Etc...

But his wife had symptoms and the guidance said not to move around in this case...

If he'd had an accident or broken down, others would have been exposed. Others could also have been exposed when he took his son to hospital at the other end of the country from where they should have been.

If everyone with symptoms had done this, we would still have an R number well above 1.

This seems like a hysterical overreaction.

I say this as someone who thought that Cummings did flout the rules with a fair degree of arrogance (and has subsequently crafted a story to fit the known facts).

For your daily sport, yes. But at this time we were specifically being warned about sitting down, particularly on benches. Some who did so we’re even fined if I remember correctly...
