I read the Times and u know I think the guy needs some help.... its all very sad... we just need to get on with moving forward. I don't think anyone expected the pandemic to cause what it did. With hindsight many things could be changed .. the knives are out

Cummings is being given a lot of airtime and credence by the BBC ..... but let's be honest, it's only to be expected .... bias has been obvious since Boris became PM (and in fact from quite a bit before)
the biggest disadvantage of age .... is that you can't outgrow it
Cummings is really showing a bad dose of sour grapes.He reminds me of the kiddies at school who dobbed in their classmates to teachers.The teachers did not like the tell-tales...
Totally agree. And if it was all so bad at the time, why did he go along with it and continue to take his hefty salary for getting on for a a further year, rather than blowing the whistle? Or, as a very senior advisor, why didn’t he advise them better / more forcefully? He’s not exactly a shrinking violet!

'Conspiracy Theory' becoming true (as per thread title):
May 28th: "Members of SAGE are out in force today, warning the Prime Minister that Britain should not unlock on June 21st because of the risk posed by the Indian Covid variant. Professor Neil Ferguson said that this strain could result in restrictions needing to be “tightened“, despite the recent increase in Covid cases not being matched by an increase in deaths. Following further pressure from other members of the advisory group today, the Prime Minister has said that Number 10 may have to “wait” for more data before pushing ahead with ending the lockdown.
Mr Hancock admitted he “desperately” wanted to proceed with plans to drop the final set of lockdown restrictions next month but ministers would only do that “if it’s safe”. He will address the nation tonight in a 5pm Downing Street press conference."

naughtyfox: The problem with today is that the government is not restricting our movements and activities enough. We need more restrictions, harsher, and for longer, so people really start taking this virus seriously.
