Coronavirus:  Peston is right – Raab taking over from Johnson IS ‘deeply worrying’

Dominic Raab: it’s almost a facepalm but we’ll probably be doing that action for real within days.

Dominic Raab – the man who didn’t realise how much UK trade relies on the Dover-Calais crossing…

… the man who said it would be easier to get a trade deal with the EU after crashing out of the bloc without one when the opposite was the case…

… is now in charge of the UK’s fight against coronavirus, after Boris Johnson went into hospital and named Raab as his chosen stand-in.

This provides us with a rare opportunity to agree with ITV politics pundit Robert Peston:

Yes. It really is “deeply worrying”.

What’s he going to do – take us back to the “herd immunity” fallacy and send us all out to catch Covid-19 too?
