But the point is, not whether it's safe or not, the idea behind the restrictions is you can only let people do so much otherwise there's too much interaction and the virus starts to go out of control. If the choice is a restaurant or a school, then you're going to open the school.
........Or stay at home. Safer is wiser and avoids problems. One keen Constable and can wreck any plans laid down for the return of good times.
Oh, and can someone buy Boris a comb with instructions as to useage. He represents HM but is an embarrassment to her and the rest of us. Think of it, a game show pannelist and ropey journalist in No. Ten!! I ask you, was Dominic there to protect him or us?

In terms of the vaccine, if we'd gone along at the EU speed we'd have only a tiny fraction of current vaccination numbers done by now so in that sense I don't believe that Brexit was a mistake, although of course there are many other non-pandemic related issues with Brexit.Reports in and driven by the media suggest that production of the vaccine in India has been reduced and that the excellent souls in Brussels seek to control British access. Believe what you will but our Government has been prudent enough to overstock, despite protests to the contrary and demands to donate our surplus stock.
Was Brexit a mistake in the current climate?
This pause in vaccines isn't good for bookings for LBA and aviation in general. Bookings were picking up based on pax assumption that they'd be vaccinated by July.
