I can’t believe I am alone in finding this epithet “Plague” Island both distasteful and misleading.
Yes we discovered the mutant variant (or indeed both, through tests and our own scientific expertise) but it is blatantly obvious that
1) viruses mutate all the time ,
2) there are variants in other parts of the world which most certainly did not originate in the UK.
And 3) to play the “blame game” by suggesting we are the source of the variant helps nobody.
