Given that COVID is a symptom of the systematic destruction of natural habitat for wildlife there should be time spared for this. Science says there will be many more pandemics if we continue to wreck the planet and natural habitat for wildlife.
Or could it be better if scientists stop messing around with natural virus's & then letting them escape into the general population? Removed

Many other escaped virus's have moved from animals to humans on various continents. Due to too many people impacting on habitats and eating bushmeat, or too dense farming of livestock, or both.

It does smack of insincerity, doesn't it?

But I have no doubt it does need scrutiny.
The Coronavirus Act 2020 also needed scrutiny.

One thing which would have been apparent very, very quickly is that Government already had the powers it needed under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 - all except the power to shed its accountability and for its actions to be open to challenge.

Tory Government, incompetent, anti-environmental, corrupt and tyrannical.

I tell you what. If HS2 was coming through our vicinity, WE WOULD HAVE STOPPED IT.
Those in the path of HS2 could have stopped it, they didnt fight hard enough, too many vested interests. WEAK.
HS2 is a waste of money, so is having to police the idiot protestors, chop the trees down they are in, lock them up Removed
