Dental appointment just cancelled due to staff absent with covid. Daughter's school under strain due to staff absent with covid. Friend's business shut due to staff absent with covid. This doesn't feel like a great time to remove the few remaining measures.

Sadly, the government’s likely next step is to simply tell people to not be absent with covid.

It's only a potentially-lethal, potentially-disabling virus. The labor that the wealthy extract the value from is far more important! People seem to forget that *that's* what Capitalism is. It was only decades of Labor fights that made it go away. Brexit aimed to bring it back.

It’s ok, they’ll make it so people with Covid have to go back to work next. Problem solved … 🤔

PM has got covid done. In the same way as he got Brexit done. He means “move along, nothing to see here, I’m the best PM ever”
