According to the Telegraph, British companies are selling PPE to European countries because, although they're offered them to the British Government they've had no response.

If this is true, one can't help wondering if the British Government is working to another agenda rather than simply fighting the Coronavirus and keeping as many as people as possible safe.. Our key workers are in danger. The PPE is available in the UK yet not being made available to our key workers because the Government aren't replying to British manufacturers. What is going on?

Incompetence rather than malice, I think.

Such incompetence in the face of a national crisis is inexcusable.

There will be plenty of posters on here who will excuse anything that the Boris Johnson government does.

Now it seems that they lied about the PPE being ready in Turkey on Saturday. They didn't ask the Turkish government for the necessary permissions until Monday.

Can we believe anything this government tells us?
