Absolutely - who could have anticipated this - and the strain must be enormous, knowing that the high probability is that as far as the public are concerned, he is in a lose-lose situation even if Brexit is completed successfully. Thing is, just looking at him on screen, he doesn't look really fit - perhaps it just strain, perhaps it is lingering effects of covid-19, perhaps it is both

It took 3 terms for Blair to look that bad.

Its not as if he has any reliable help with that goon squad surrounding him.

The Chancellor, whose name I still cannot get right, seems the only one with any ideas. As for Hancock, I reckon Tony Hancock could do a better job. - and heís dead!

I know he's looking tired, wrung out, and harassed but, why is he not following the advice his virus experts are giving him. It was on last nights news that he was advised to lockdown three weeks ago on a circuit breaker thingy, he ignored this and things are spiralling out of control again. Why is he faffing about.

Possibly because he feared a second flush may send the economy completely down the pan.

Incidentally just what is spiralling out of control?

Apart from a few hotspots I donít think things are spiralling out of control, and annoyingly the shotgun approach even there doesnít look too brilliant. It seems interesting that none of the three tiers recognised low risk areas, of which there are many. Winter is coming. All pulmonary infections, not just Covid, increase in prevalence in the colder weather. Not true of some non-viral conditions, of course. For instance, the Legionella bacillus canít survive below 60F.

Trouble is, if you stop digging this hole and start another, it still might not get you where you want to go and you end up by just being in another hole.  The thousands of young people flocking Liverpool's streets last night shows you that a substantial part of the population intend breaking all the rules they can.  How can you plan for that?  They should have been fined £10,000 each, that would slow them down a bit.  I have little doubt that the 'second wave' should be laid at the feet of the selfish.

I doubt many of them had £10,000, and we donít have enough jails for all of them. I suppose that you can really see it as civil disobedience aganst legislation they regard as disproportionate, and for the vast majority of them it is. Even if they catch the virus, the overwhelming likelihood is that the condition will be mild.
The likelihood of them donating the virus to folk more at risk sadly doesnít seem to bother them.

Oh, and given the rubbish to which we have all been subjected, I wouldnít be surprised if many of them simply donít believe that is a risk anyway
