Its already hit the fan when Hancock ridiculously and wrecklessly stated that the virus was out of control. Hes being quoted on the front page of European newspapers. Nice one.
Actions have consequences, something this lot don't seem to realise. They’ve wheeled out the mutation and the opinion (because that’s all it is for now) that it’s 70% more infectious as cover for the utter mess they’ve made in the SE by refusing to change direction in the capital. I sometimes wonder if they actually realise that all events are inter connected and you can’t just say something in isolation and expect it not to impact on other policy and events.
