What happened to the gov's #fivetests?
What happened to contact tracing?
Has the gov completely abandoned the science and it's own rules due to its inability to meet it's own targets?

Looking at SAGE papers we are in serious risk of going straight into a second peak

Let's look
1. NHS capacity, we have the Nightingale wards, bed capacity is there, but

Do we have the staff for large patient numbers in Nightingales?
What are our ventilator numbers like?
2. Sustained fall in cases
Gov claims less ppl are testing positive, however for 3 days theyve stopped saying how many people are tested
Looking at figures only around 40k at most were tested,it appears cases in the community have started to rise

There’s a risk that school leaders will facilitate the deaths of some colleagues by opening when unsafe. Not because they’re reckless - quite the contrary.

It’s because good people find it really difficult to truly accept that the government IS reckless and callous. But it is.
Most of us want to believe that, all partisanship aside, when the chips are down on a matter of literal life or death, a government of any hue would prioritise protecting life.

It’s incredibly hard, even for cynics like me, to process the fact that this government doesn’t.
There’s more evidence than anyone needs: the deliberately confusing statements, the manipulation of figures, the initial reluctance to act, the ‘herd immunity’ plan.

But most of all, the dishonesty. They have lied almost constantly. About PPE, about testing, about ventilators.

@NEUnion press release.

This is what leadership looks like - this is holding the government to account and likely saving lives.

Take a bow.
