So Johnson continues appease the frothing mouths of the rabid doggs in his back benches.
Unfortunately I have heard their argument around here for some time. Covid is here to stay so might as well just let people die rather than the terrible curtailment of civil liberties by having to wear a mask. If the virus mutates, well why waste time with new vaccines. sacrifices on the alter of the free market economy are just an inconvenience. This argument does not seem to be worked through or at least articulated properly – they fail to state the logical next step that people with covid should be denied access to the NHS. This would of course make the NHS more attractive to American Medical Giants and Hedge Funds.
