*Pammie1*. So does 'other parties' mean the government were running around irresponsibly at a time we were told to behave?
I don't know the inner workings of high office work but I suspect the cabinet meeting by Zoom then emailing instructions probably is not how it works. More likely there is 'wheeling and dealing' to get things done face to face. A need for human interaction. That's what they did.
We (well the media) demanded information, PPE, more hospitals (Nightingale), vaccines, more testing, compensation for loss of earnings, etc. I imagine the government did this in the most efficient manner they know in the way they have always worked to our benefit. Now there is light at the end of the pandemic tunnel the vultures are gathering.
Die-hard Tories don't want lockdowns affecting business (recent revolt on COVID passes to nightclubs) - BREXIT is done so no need for Boris.
Labour will likely have locked us all in, bankrupted the country and left us last in the queue for vaccines.
I think Boris was the right man so we hit the middle ground, thankfully.
You’re trying to excuse the inexcusable. The government set the rules, they should have abided by them. They asked the people of this country to make sacrifices - how many families lost loved ones in the most tragic of circumstances ? Loved ones who died alone in hospitals and nursing homes, because people were following lockdown rules thinking they were doing the right thing. Now we find that as always with the Tories, it’s one rule for us and another for them. It’s completely unacceptable and they should all be ashamed of themselves. The buck stops with Boris, he should accept responsibility and go.
