The abject failure of our Test, Trace and Isolate system, despite the millions of tax payer money spent on it, is the reason why we need to keep our lockdowns in place until hospitalisations fall to a level our NHS can cope with.

Who was the idiot who though that financially encouraging people to move house in the middle of a national lock down was a good idea ?

I had to sell my mum's house last year after she passed away and undoubtedly benefited from the stamp duty holiday as we go our asking price straight away, on condition that they sale went through during the stamp duty holiday !

Solicitors, surveyors, probate etc were all working from home and everything took at least twice as long as it would have done normally.

Then there was the idiotic weekend when I travelled the length of the country while the buyers travelled as far the other way for them to look round the house and ask me questions about the house.

The stamp duty holiday has been a windfall for a few, encouraged un-necessary lockdown breaches and been a headache for all involved. there is no reason to extend this tax payer largesse.

I fully support both HS2 and HS3, as key national infrastructure projects that not only create skilled jobs, but also improve our North / South and East / West connectivity.

Our government should be enabling leaseholders to recover the cost of putting right their apartments from whoever sold them, not using our tax payer money to put right someone else's incompetence.

I can see the potential for driverless public transport, rail and buses, which could significantly reduce the cost of public transport and is relatively feasible because these run on on specific routes which can be engineered to be autonomous compatible.

While autonomous private cars are becoming feasible they depend on roads engineered to suit them, which in our patchwork road system is not practical.

The only practical way I can see to reduce private car pollution in built up areas is through road pricing, which might become politically possible if there was cross party support so that it was in the manifestos of all parties.

Why no mention of our tax payer US$500 million investment in OneWeb ?

Could it be that Chris recognises that was a Cummings fantasy project ?
Could it be that our OneWeb investment is useless as a support for our home grown space industry ?
Will our investment in OneWeb be funded by taking investment away from our own space companies ?

Can we sell our stake in OneWeb and reinvest the proceeds into our own space industry ?
