Test and trace: is it failing because it is headed by someone who may not have the best interests of the NHS at heart?

There are many instances of husbands and wives disagreeing on politics, of course.

But can we trust Dido Harding to do a good job leading the “test and trace” team at Public Health England when she comes from a household that wants to dissolve that organisation and scrap the National Health Service?

To This Writer, the very idea seems like madness.

But that’s Boris Johnson for you.

The Tory MP husband of Test and Trace chief Dido Harding has been linked to a right-wing group calling for the NHS to be replaced by an insurance system.

Former minister John Penrose said last month he was “delighted” to join the advisory board of 1828.

One article authored by 1828’s co-founders argued Britain should be “bold and progressive” – scrapping the NHS in favour of a system where people pay for insurance either through private firms or a government scheme.

The group has also published articles calling for the abolition of Public Health England, which has a key role in the Coronavirus Test and Trace system headed by his wife.
