burnham’s lost his marbles.
Not long ago he was asking for regional controls, and when he’s handed them he refuses to act on them and calls for a national lockdown.
Why should Cornwall’s businesses - with a low infection rate - suffer because burnham’s lost control of the virus on his patch ? Why should people who live in Cornwall die because visitors from Manchester have infected them ?
I rarely have praise for liebour politicians these days, but even London’s mayor Sadiq Khan has realised this goes beyond politics. Good on him.
peterdbsc ……. no scientific evidence that further lockdown in Manchester will be effective.
There’s no “scientific evidence” to the contrary either. The only thing that’s guaranteed is that doing nothing will make things worse and more people (burnham’s option) will die.
I’m soooooo glad we moved to our semi-secluded rural (northern) detached bungalow across the road from the open moors, well away from the z̶o̶m̶b̶i̶e̶. covid-19 apocalypse areas.
