I wonder if Laura can understand why this does not sit well when the Chancellor has just splurged billions of pounds in other support ? It can be wise at times to take the blinkers off of personal opinion and do some real research at ground level across the country before voting on the basis of fixed beliefs. Not a good look or optics to use the modern vernacular Laura.

Daughter went for a Covid test today. Was told to insert swab herself and aim for the tonsils (she had no idea where they are). Given the unreliability of the PCR test anyway this suggests that accuracy is not a requirement. Making up the results to suit an agenda ? This has got past a joke.

A clear statement of accounts or something else ? I will let you decide.

Being prepared to put loyalty aside and stand up for the right thing. The attribute of leaders capable of moving things forward with a sure touch.

Interesting comment here from Laura which I have no real disagreement with, but I do think it would be a much more effective message of a return to normalcy if the Government could have been seen to be on top of the crisis, rather than in a confused and faltering reaction mode where nothing ever goes to plan. I also note that the population are no longer taking the Government seriously and are now taking their own counsel on what they can and cannot do. This leaves large sections acting irresponsibly. Not a great success? Perhaps it needs Laura's leadership, abilities, insight and energies at the top now?

Got something to say? / Future Prime Minister ?

Leaders always need to show that they are made of the right stuff. With the first really lucid comment on the pandemic I have read from a politician is it possible we have a future Prime Minister in the making in Laura ?

Latest Government figures state that 10% of the population have so far been exposed to the virus. This means that 90% have yet to have any kind of antibody protection/immunity. Please be sensible in your actions and stay safe. There is a long way to go yet.
