    Should have just played a recording of Monday’s update. You do wonder what they do through the day until 5pm.

    what would you like him to do?? Considering most countries in the world/ top scientists don’t know what to do

    If we go on a full lockdown it could make the situation worse. Economy wise and health wise. It could last 12 months.

    I might be wrong, but I get the impression from you it doesn’t matter what he says. As he’s a Tory.

    I don't rule this out, below is the link of news story published in one of Pakistan's daily newspaper on February 22nd refering to export of chloroquine phosphate tablets to China.

    You're assuming we're doing as many tests as we were previously.

    Not arsed who was up there, be strong and address the nation honesty. He’s just said we can get on top of it in 12 weeks, when asked what he means by that he couldn’t answer it. I’d like him to at least force businesses to close. Happy with public transport to carry on too but want people to stop socialising. Contradictions everywhere. Make a stance and be strong with it and everyone fight it together.

    Idiot or not, it takes a bigger fucking idiot not to follow the advice. It can’t be any fucking clearer to me - stay out of pubs and restaurants. Granted, they should be just closing them outright now because not everyone is listening or heeding the advice, but we can’t put all the blame on the government if people are ignoring what they’re asking us to do.

    To be fair he doesn't need to have, what he needs to do is appoint the right people and do what they say, then put that across . Which he seems to be ok doing. What he can’t do and other leaders do better is have the knowledge to expand on stuff in answer to questions. Not ideal but in the scheme of things if he gets good advice and acts on it thats the important thing.

    I don’t know what everyone’s complaining about, at least we can all go to the pub this weekend ;-)
