Sooner the better we open, thousands are going to Cheshire oaks and into Chester to shop. It’s revenue we could do with. I bet the same is happening all over Wales if they are close enough to the border.
I have just seen the grovelling excuse he has just made to the media on tv this afternoon. This is the man who advised the Prime minister of how people should behave throughout the current pandemic He said If anyone in the family home showed any signs of Covid-19 then the family should not share towels and bedding and to isolate for 14 days. WE were told that during Lockdown we were not to travel any distance apart from food shopping, medicines or to work If we couldn’t work from home.
We stuck by these rules, many of us who have grandchildren, daughters, sons etc haven’t seen them since mid March.
This man’s excuses are abysmal at the least. He should have adhered to his own advice and isolated within his own home and after the initial 14 days assess If anyone was still showing any signs of the illness. He says he travelled 260 to isolate and protect his child because he himself was showing signs of Covid-19.
Believe me, If he had signs of this disease he wouldn’t have been able to drive more than 2 miles.
I am most disappointed in Boris Johnson for not sacking him, he has let down the country and also let down his own credibility as a politician.
There is certainly no evidence that smokers, drinkers and drivers are susceptible to COVID19 and blocking up NHS beds. It is people with underlying health problems such as Diabetes, Asthma and the elderly people at risk. Many who have died have had underlying illnesses.
My point above is that when the government is in need of extra revenue they know where to turn, up goes tobacco, up goes alcohol and spirits, up goes petrol and diesel. They get far more from that than they do if they put a penny or two on income tax.
