Whack-a-mole & local lockdowns are not sustainable strategies. Also don’t think outbreak response should be led by modellers (who ignored test/trace/isolate) or computer simulations. That is one input but also crucially needs public health, boots-on-the-ground approach.

UK government willing to spend barely the cost of 7% of HS2 on the entire country, and even that will inevitably go via the pockets of Tory donors and union-busting outsourcing firms before working-class areas see a penny. Workers don't want the crumbs, we deserve the whole pie.
