      Whatever the politics, Boris is right to be led by the scientific experts. His own opinions would be completely without any true knowledge, as would be the case of almost every single politician in the house. There may of course be an odd one with some sort of relevant knowledge but probably nowhere near the ones that are currently being used.

        No, no. They've got it all wrong. Some old alcoholic ex glorified paperboy clearly knows more than the experts assisting the government. It must be true because he keeps telling us so.....

          Cummings delayed things. Boris is afraid to make unpopular decisions.
          We need proper and decisive leadership.
          We don't have it.

          We should follow WHO guidance.

          We need a proper Lockdown like in Spain.


          NOW!!!!

            The issue, as I see it (therefore probably way off mark) is exactly which scientists BJ chooses to listen to.

            After the first main public address his scientific expert was widely condemned by other scientific experts.

            In fairness to Boris, he's got one hell if a problem to deal with. I wonder if he regrets becoming PM as his honeymoon is well and truly over.

              Are you referring to the letter not signed by any leading scientists in the relevant disciplines?

              He is listening to the scientists who are experts in the appropriate disciplines.

                Maybe.

                But if that's the case I'm a bit alarmed as to why the UK was an outlier in terms of our response vs the rest of the EU and why in some cases we're not following the advice of the WHO. We've not been in in line with other countries which does beg the question why our experts are giving us different advice.

                I've just read the quotes from the NZ PM about their lockdown and it's a very different approach to ours.

                  Fair points but the experts BJ is listening to are at fault in that case.

                  To be clear, I ain't a fan of the bumbling buffoon but criticism should be earnt & appropriate.

                    Exactly my point above .

                      Agreed.

                      I think one criticism of the govt is they haven't been great at getting a clear message out. Where are the adverts etc as we had for a potential no deal Brexit?

              They have also been showing here in Italy on Sky a Uk Sky report inside the hospital too, not sure if you have seen it, but it really brings home the difficulty that the health services are facing.

                A lot of the NHS admin staff here are ex nurses etc..and are now commendably going back to the front line to help.

                Which is in turn leaving the admin/HR functions etc..incredibly stretched too.

                They are all knackered after 1 week. Absolute heroes, all.

                  They are heroes, I think a lot of us underestimate the sacrifices they are making.

                  Here in Italy the brought doctors and nurse out of retirement and have also brought final year medical students into the front line, that is a baptism of fire.
                  I have huge respect for all of them.

                    Yes, I have seen it. It's horrific. Just awful.
