1/ Beware the debate on Social Care:

I fear the #SocialCare debate is going the way of the Brexit debate. A binary choice between two polar opposites with nothing in between. In this case raise Nat Ins or don't. Already the debate on the media is between these two points.
2/ There is very limited to no discussion on:

- The bigger issues: what sort of model of social care do we want in the 21st century?
3/ What is the best way to structure social care, the balance between private and public, between in home and residential home care, between council responsibilities and the government's and why shouldn't social care be structured like the NHS?

Thread with today’s Winston Smith news update
- the borders have not been shut
- there have not been 3 million vaccinations
- the schools are not shut
(1 of 5)
2/ the borders AREN’T shut as the newspaper headlines shout.

People can still travel to the UK. They simply have to self isolate for two weeks once they’ve arrived here. The isolation is entirely unpoliced.
3/ there have NOT 3 million+ vaccinations

A vaccination, ie full protection, from the current vaccines needs two shots. So far only around 400,000 people have been vaccinated, ie had both shots. The rest have only had one shot.

1/5 - Most of the media are pushing the Government line that Lockdown 3 isn't working well as Lockdown 1 because of our behaviour. What they don't make clear is that this Lockdown is weaker than the first one..
2/ The key differences are:
- the definition of key worker has been expanded to Lockdown 1 so that children who do not have a laptop or broadband access can go to work
- nurseries are open they weren't in Lockdown 1
3/ All the data shows that the pandemic is now worse than it was in Lockdown 1 yet the Government have chosen a weaker form of Lockdown (media people please note their choice)..

1/8) Media coverage of #COVID19

When the BBC cover #COVID19 in the US. They rightly point out Trump's role in their tragedy. They call out his mistakes and when he lies they say something like "there is no evidence of that". ImageImageImage
2/ Yet when they cover the UK, it's like spread of the virus is some purely random thing. They never call out Johnson and the Government's mistakes the way they do Trump. They not only let their lies go free without a "there's no evidence of that" tag, they
3/ repeat them, without qualification or fact checking. Sky and ITV do this too. Why can't they cover COVID here the way they did in the US, Italy etc?

They also do not give adequate coverage of the alternatives to the Government's approach, for instance

A lot happens with #COVID19 everyday, some of it gets lost with everything else going on or just doesn't get covered. I'll try to do a regular (hopefully daily) Thread spotlighting important updates and insights I've come across.
