If only government would listen for just one and a quarter minutes…
It is remarkable (to me at least) how the government keeps trying to kickstart the economy at every opportunity – and which simply results in another lockdown principally because there is no functioning test trace and isolate system.
And it happens again and again.
We have a government that is irrational – just look at this interesting and informative article in the FT on the workings of the Brexit negotiations where:
Shane Brennan, chief executive of the Cold Chain Federation, which represents the temperature-controlled haulage and logistics industry, says: “It was pretty clear we had to be complicit in the fallacy that these things could just work, or risk losing any influence we might have.”
We are, rather like the Iranians, governed by religious zealots.
My only difficulty is that I’m not sure what their religion actually is.
