MOST AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENT EVER?…
MOST AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENT EVER?
I align myself with the growing number of MP's that are calling for Parliament to have much more of a say before more restrictions are being imposed upon us by Boris and Cummings.
If it seems like some of the recent decisions are "off the wall", it is what happens when a small band of people get together and decide what should happen without proper consultation and scrutiny.

I don't thing anyone believes that there should be different policies for dealing with the virus, depending on whether you are in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland or here in England.
The 10pm curfew seems ill judged in that everyone pours out of the pubs into town centres at the same time.
When you find out that the restrictions don't apply to the bars that the MP's use in Westminster and they have put in a special dispensation so that people can still gather to go hunting and shooting… it just reinforces the idea that it is one rule for them and another for the rest of us.
