Governments are not responsible for stopping variantsIt appears that the UK restrictions will continue for another couple of weeks, because the government didn't think it was responsible for controlling variants either.
- And now the Delta variant is out of control (surprise!)
- There wasn't much they could do about the Kent variant - it was first discovered in the UK
- But other variants could have been kept out with quarantine measures
- Or is the UK more closely tied to Europe than Boris wants to admit?
In implementing a policy of minimising economic disruption, the government has increased economic disruption - a classic policy backfire.
- While the voters may be impressed by policy speeches, viruses just ignore them...
I feel sorry for people in the UK - but you are still better off than the USA was last year...
- At least the UK has a public health system, regardless of what you think of it!
