Writing from a position of complete epidemiological ignorance, I nevertheless believe that the Government bluster about the new Covid strain is 90% smokescreen. This isn’t the first mutation, as Spanish citizens and Dutch (correction, it was Danish) mink well know.
In my suspicious mind, Johnson and Hancock needed some “new” news to legitimise their dramatic U turn, and they latched onto the new strain. Everything was hunky dory for a five day celebration on Friday morning, and then suddenly, it wasn’t.
IMO after Johnson’s performance at PMQs on Wednesday he should have announced tier four and his resignation at the same time. I downloaded the PMQs session from Parliament TV in case anybody hasn’t seen it. It’s disgraceful.
Due to popular demand a version that is 25mb as opposed to 70mb.
A larger version for those who may want to watch Johnson lying in HD.
