Twitter Web App : Marshall Auerback How was the cocooning even going to work? What was the plan to prevent what is actually happening now, which is care staff bringing the virus into homes and quickly infecting most of the residents

Twitter Web App : Marshall Auerback There was no real plan. No effort to do resting and tracing. No effort to ensure NHS staff had sufficient PPE. Even if what you are saying is true, and I find it dubious based on what we’ve seen in other countries, there still obviously needs to be an inquiry

Twitter Web App : Sean Biggerstaff I think he's made it really obvious what he is. It's the same with that column about politics actually being important now because of COVID. For whatever reason he's not really capable of understanding other people's suffering as important
