You try working an engine without a dipstick to measure the depth of the oil? It is a measure and you are being measured. You have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. Can't handle it, can you?

Let's face it, neither he nor his Cabinet cronies have a clue what to do. Open up too quickly & risk the Infection rate/Deaths rising again; open too slowly & risk permanently damaging the economy.

He was voted in to get Brexit done; well he has done this, inflicting a terrible Trade Deal. Its now time for him & his Etonian mates to Foxtrot Oscar & let somebody take over who does have a clue.
Sound very bitter and an inverted snob. Maybe you could propose the correct strategy? Removed

There's an idea for a new all British business model, "Toddler Poo Bags" I wonder if the marketing name 'Angel Delight' might clash though...
Far more harm caused by lockdowns so why are we persisting. Once the vulnerable have been vaccinated we should open up.

He's an expert on lockdowns is he? In America? Where they've had little or no lockdowns at all? And had almost 500,000 Covid deaths? With no lockdowns? And relatively few vaccinations?

Expert is he?

Well if that was true (which incidentally it isn't) why are the EU doing so badly with procurement & vaccination, because they would surely have ordered & approved the vaccines under EU rules too?

PMSL
The answer is complex but ultimately because Covid wasn't out if control in the EU like it was in the UK, so the rush to roll wasn't needed.

It's not about whether individuals are petrified or not. It's about protecting public health, and trying to avoid people becoming avoidably disabled. If you catch covid, you are infectious for several days before you get the first symptoms. Would you want to risk killing, disabling, or putting someone in hospital, just so you get your normality back?

"The Perpetually Petrified can stay in, I'm going out!" - fine - just when you get it and are begging for oxygen you can stay out of our hospitals as well. Thanks for your help, I'll pass your name on to my exhausted friends in the NHS.
Best strategy Boris could come up with is to get rid of Sturgeon and open up Scotland in line with England. The majority of Scots who did not vote for an SNP dictator are fed up with her negativity and constant anti English propaganda broadcast on BBC every day. Removed

If only we had someone capable of making evidence based policy decisions in charge. Instead we have a serial liar, regularly sacked sexually incontinent clown who studied classics.

If we'd have had someone like Merkel with a doctorate in science running the country there would be 60,000 British people still alive.

This is the most corrupt government in UK political history. They expect the majority of the population to trust them despite knowing the lies that they have told. Hancock PPE & cronyism is followed by Priti not understanding employment law re bullying to Boris having the gall to mention unelected bureaucrats and then putting frost in the Cabinet. Shabby doesn't cover it.

Love the picture of Boris apparently pondering on his "road map", or his contemplating what to about Hancock acting unlawfully, "the Pritster" in the High Court over Boris's interference in her breach of the Ministerial Code & his head of his "Union Unit" quitting after 2 weeks due to the actions of others in No.10? So many failings, so little time to deal with them all!!??

MkIII at 09:38- 'And yet they will romp the next election.' The Tory party has a long history of getting rid of failing PM's. The only way that Boris became PM was because the ERG got rid of May. May was too honest in realising that farmers, fishermen, hauliers - even touring musicians, actors etc needed a deal with the EU that didn't shaft UK interests. Several ERG MP's are turning away from him

Fred what are you saying that upsets moderators?Now 'roadmap' should include no foreign travel in or out. Then look at which MPs and, or, their families have benefitted over the year. Which Universities have accepted funds from dubious Foreign Nations,particularly, from Far East and whom are happy for lockdown to continue. Which foreign Country has most coming into UK but are not on 'red list'.

Get realistic
12:52

"Chris Whitty is ‘very unhappy with Boris Johnson’s "

The problems lie around Johnson and Gove's lies:

Nowhere is safe from CV19 - but one can manage risk.

Government claiming schools are safe sets up an expectation of eradicating CV19 that is impossible so a little honesty might help, and reasonable expectations ...

Not oscillating between over and under promising.
