RE: Chat hub
I get the feeling that none of the people making the decisions actually understand the arguments put forward to them. Most of them in this country are lawyers or PPE graduates. And most are deciding in line with their inclinations. So in this country it's just more of the usual war on liberty. There's a reason I call the local leaderene contemptuously, "Queen Nikki".

It doesn't seem to matter what the leaders' political inclinations are, just that all of them feel the desperate need to control others every way they can. Covid has been an opportunity for control freaks everywhere, and the results have not been edifying.

For all that I'm not even close to a Trump fan, his inclinations seem more libertarian than most. However, it is none of my business who the people of the US choose to lead them.

It will take decades likely, if not a century, to find out what should have been done. Or even what could have been done.

Covid has been nowhere close to the lethality of the 1918 epidemic, which killed at least 15 million people. My grandfather was the only survivor of the 22 people in a tent who had gone down with that flu. They were all bedded down one night and he was the only one that woke up in the morning. But the general health of the public was far lower then - a full 75% of the conscripts from Glasgow did not meet the (low) medical requirements for conscription (drafting in American I think).

So there are no good answers at the moment. It wouldn't surprise me if there were still heated arguments still going on about what could/should have been done in 1918.

So like you, Michael, I'm glad nobody will be blaming me for policy choices made just now.
