The only way to say no to another lockdown is honour social distancing measures, which a lot of people don't seem to get.

Lots of comments about 'illegals' in the comment section. Most puzzling

We wouldn’t have to have another one if we had a competent government that handled this properly

think thats pretty obvious, better testing/tracing. We wont have another lockdown like we had in march. More restrictions maybe, but business and services will not close down again

If we had one too that didn't deceive and lie as well.

I agree, from protection equipment to testing, to dangerously easing lockdown too much, the incompetence has been unbelievably infuriating.

With way more deaths than should ever have resulted too.
Scandalous.

I mean in Farage's video, I agree it should be unacceptable that none of the things being done have been voted on individually in parliament.
However with an 80 overall majority, which Farage helped him get with his undemocratic election farcical gameplaying, it wouldn't matter if parliament did have votes on it.

He's right in that this government is more dictatorial than democratic however.

over the last 20 - 25 years, i've noticed a steep decline in competence of cabinet members across all political parties. They can get away with it when things are running smoothly, but come crisis time they fail miserably. There is obviously a lack of talent available

Dunno what the lockdown has got to do with immigration is why I'm puzzled. There one comment about immigrants staying in five star hotels. Maybe you can explain what thats got to do with anything?

So the medical boffins all saying the only way to stop this second wave is to have a complete lockdown to keep everyone apart - so it canít be passed on human to human .. The flaw in this idea is that we are planning on keeping schools open as normal .

Not really down to you (or any other member of the public) I’m afraid.

Just saying, alot of comments on immigration. I was wondering why it was relevant seeing as a few mentioned it.

the only reason for the original lockdown was to keep the pressure off the nhs. At the moment the nhs is under zero pressure from covid, so any talk of lockdown is extremely premature. The number of hospital admissions should drive restrictions, not the number of daily infections... we are being manipulated by the media

The thirst to ape the tabloids for a lockdown is baffling

These says, it's just not an attractive career path for talented people, is the simple reality of it. Talented people can excel in academia, the private sector or the 3rd sector without being smeared all over tabloids like politicians are... they can say/write/do what they believe in and still keep getting paid, where politicians have to pander to the lowest common denominator or fail to be elected. Who would do that to themself? Only someone who isn't in it because they're talented... but because they're seeking something else. Power, influence or just banal prestige. Not the realms of clever people tbh.
