I am not a historian so I am not sure that the next statement is correct. Times of crisis are often followed by social reform.
However if true the government will need to look out. Flag waving jingoism might appeal to the idiot and the sycophants in Number 10. But when this crisis is ebbing away, people might start to look at the distribution of income and job security. The latter is perhaps the most concerning. Zero hour contracts, short-term contracts and part-time work might be the American way but British Society is not as transient or malleable.
