Some of today's headlines/commentary re. new variant are really not helping people's (already fragile) mental health) Of course we should take it seriously but there is no plausible scenario that this variant is going to take us back to square one (ie. the situation pre-vaccines)

Inflation is, always and everywhere, a monetary phenomenon: there is no such thing as co-push inflation
We are told that @Conservatives philosophy has changed. I disagree. It would be a mistake to believe that a more social democratic approach to economic management represents the centre of gravity in the Party. My piece in @thetimes👇 #Budget21 #Budget2021 thetimes.co.uk/article/liam-…

Why such silence on the significant reduction in infections? and hospital admissions are still lower than they were a month ago: yet all these demands to shut the country down again; little wonder some people write to me about a conspiracy!

Yesterday I asked the SNP spokesman about the effectiveness of his mask. He replied saying that its main purpose was to 'send a signal' Today I asked the Vaccines Minister about hers protect-eu.mimecast.com/s/bF…

This afternoon I asked the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Health and Social Care whether the ‘super-spreader’ event was the spread of illiberal, discriminatory, and coercive policies from his despatch box.

#Lockdown restrictions made it much harder for us to get out and about. As a result, many of us are feeling less active and confident than before. 🚶‍♂️🧘 Whether you're struggling to walk as far or feel a little less steady on your feet, we're here to help: bit.ly/3eClFvb

Re Mr Hancock, a thought: Covid regulations have created a dystopian world of denunciation, finger-wagging & hypocrisy. Let us be freed from this tyranny of diktat and arbitrary rule. As we shall inevitably see with this sad example, the revolution always consumes its own.

By any measure the emergency has passed and yet freedoms are still withheld. The Government will not allow us to assess for ourselves the risks that we are prepared to encounter in our everyday lives. The Government does not trust the people that it governs.
