Experts agree that the government is misleading you over the Delta variant

How nice to see that economic expert* Simon Wren-Lewis agrees with This Site’s appraisal of the effect on the UK of Sajid Javid’s Covid-19 policy.

In brief:

  • Greater strain on hospitals.
  • More people suffering Long Covid.
  • Disruption of education (mitigated by the summer holidays).

He makes an excellent point that the government has thrown away the advantages of vaccination because Boris Johnson wanted to sign a trade deal with India…

… which hasn’t happened yet.

We have a race between vaccination and the Delta variant, and the government by delaying putting India on the red list gave Delta a big head start.

This provides ideal conditions for a new variant to emerge that could seriously diminish the effectiveness of a double dose of vaccine.

So Johnson has put us in danger of being sent back to Square One, while demanding that lifting the restrictions that have saved so many of our lives will be irreversible and we’ll just have to “live with Covid” from then on.

I wonder if tribal Tory voters are still happy with their choice at the 2019 general election.

Do they even know their prime minister deliberately endangered them for the sake of a few quid?

*He’s still an expert!
