Trouble is that their behaviour will make it harder for the rest of us

Of course he doesn't care. Why change the habit of a lifetime?

Go. I would if I could. We're too old now sadly but almost anywhere else is starting to look better than here

I was feeling fairly OK yesterday. Stuff today has pulled me back down to earth with a bump. I've never wanted so much to be wrong. Well, maybe about Brexit but it's all part of the same mess now

They're taking us for mugs. And, they're right. We are. We're falling for the "we're winning the battle" "right to ease restrictions" "5 conditions met" "need to get economy moving" "cure worse than disease" Maybe we deserve this.

This is all just a big game to Cummings & his ilk (I use the word "ilk" here to mean ultra-right-wing, empathy-free eugenicists) isn't it? I kind of hoped Johnson's brush with death might have woken him from his lazy laissez-faire approach but no. We're lumbered with this.

That's assuming they live to get there & they're ok with the increased number of deaths arising from this shambles.

If I was Whitty or Vallance I wouldn’t be putting up with Johnson’s shithousery. One resignation could bring the whole thing down. House of Lords though. It’s a nice gig.

The fact that your silence may lead to many deaths, particularly when your job is to prevent them may have a bearing. They could at least quit.

If the SAGE members have any integrity they should all resign. And for those two doctors/scientists this is not politics, it’s about saving lives. This conference is a disgrace!

Infections & deaths are not falling & may be going up. The lockdown is obviously breaking down. People are visiting each other & restrictions are being relaxed. Those of us still genuinely scared, because we or loved ones are in "at risk" categories are going to be stuffed.

He hasn't actually prevented them has he? They're standing there. They have microphones, an audience & a live television feed. How much do they get paid to support this shit?

If the Chief Medical Officer says he has no view to express on whether or not people should drive 60 miles to test their eyesight then I don’t think they should be the Chief Medical Officer.

What's the bloody point of getting them back fora couple of weeks? I'm actually wondering if it's to get infections nicely up & running again in time for the summer holidays. You know, taking it on the chin & all.

Teachers & their families are expendable I assume. Most of them are nasty lefties anyway
