We know that most readers oppose 42 days (unlike this blog) but what do people think about it being an issue that stops an otherwise effective police officer from running the Met? The Sunday Telegraph suggests confusingly that Boris Johnson both "may" and "will" object to a Met Chief that supported the Government on 42 days. Such a litmus test (if it exists) may discourage police officers from making any statements on controversial issues in future – like drugs, speed cameras or stop and search. Is that a good thing?
Sunak said yesterday that “our lives can no longer be put on hold”. But that’s just what Johnson’s ready to do if he thinks it necessary.
With the 10pm curfew starting tomorrow, Sunak’s “imaginative” measures will need to come within days
Covid. Mass lockdowns v a Swedish option is a flawed choice. But if Ministers can’t make mass testing work, it’s the one we’ll have.
