The United Kingdom is no longer united, as illustrated by the way its constituent countries chose to control the Covid-19 pandemic.
Britain is failing to cope with the Covid-19 epidemic as well as other countries in Europe and East Asia have. Out of 62,000 excess deaths in the UK, says former chief scientific officer Sir David King, “40,000 excess deaths could have been avoided if government had acted responsibly”.
Sadly, Britain is not the country it was. It doesn’t have the courage to make these decisions. It won’t agree on anything over the COVID-19 crisis because of its new found method of delivering authority – division. And we’ll pay that price very heavily one way or another.
It turns out the British media are the ones that were peddling fake news on Johnson’s deterioration and keeping the public in the dark.
