It's easier to just let everyone get it, get over it, some old folks die, and we move on, and put it behind us.
Not be surprised if that is the plan, behind closed doors, but you can't admit to this, so you need to do things the public see that shows you care.
Like which country? How is the U.K. being different than say most other Western European countries?Maybe start with some little things,like if a minister said he been in contact with the supermarket,make sure here has.
At the moment there are still 3 direct flies from Iran per week,most believe they haven't been honest,about what's happening their,maybe a ban ?
Look at how other country dealing with it, is there we can learn ?
I think you find there was quite a majority last election...But a conservative can’t do anything right in your opinion anyway can theyBut if the numbers of old people dying,goes way up,it could be bad for the Conservative,as they have been seen as the backbone of Conservative Support. ?

There was a video on yesterday,where the person in disease control was pointing a few counties that maybe we should be just looking as a model.
The country that has had most success is Singapore but that has specific attributes that allow that success that I dont think are quickly transferable to the UK (or any other Western democracy).
The level of government control over peoples lives in Singapore wouldn't be acceptable in the UK and there is a culture of cleanliness that has been promoted over decades, but that is supported by an army of low cost Asian labour who clean everything that doesn't move.
Sorry but he an expert in his field,and i thought he had some very good things to say,we can ignore people like that at are own peril
Agree, we could potentially all rush out and get a test tomorrow, for what benefit? it wont stop peeps getting it and there is no cure for circa 10 months so having a test is just a complete waste of time and potentially takes you nearer to people who are possibly infected.In our government's defence, at least we're not the US where the moron in chief is telling Americans everyone will get a test and then health providers have to discreetly tell patients, their president lied to them and they won't get tested. Now that's a royal cluster****.
Nailed itI had the misfortune to be dragged kicking and screaming by the wife on a weekend shopping mission to Sainsbury's on Saturday, and virtually every other shopper was an elderly person with at least one and more usually two shopping trolleys loaded to the brim with bog rolls, packets of pasta and those Fray Bentos steak thingys I've always known as Land Mine Pies.
Now I'm not being funny, but the use-by date on these products is something like August 2058.
In fact I heard an item on Radio Four the other week where they found some corned beef tins on a merchant ship that went down off Scapa Flow during the Second World War and they were perfectly edible.
If there's one sector of the population that really doesn't need to stock up on non-perishables it's folks in their 90's - all they're doing is making work for the poor sods who have to do the house clearance when they pop their clogs in September.
I'm half expecting to read the newspaper headline shortly - 'Hundred Year Old Pensioner Killed In Cellar By Falling Pallet Of Baked Beans'.
It's a nasty bout of flu - if you get it you'll feel awful for a week then you'll be fine.
Unless you're currently loitering in God's waiting room in which case you'll die.
But I suppose it's a convenient distraction to scare the great unwashed for Boris so they don't ask any awkward questions such as why we don't currently have a trading agreement with anyone other than the Cayman Islands.
And it gives Muslims a bit of respite in the Daily Mail's constant 'Who You Should Hate This Week' blame game.
