Yet Zahawi saying he there is no plan to cut back on LFT's.
Can this government give a cohesive answer (yes or no) to anything?

If you give a range of answers, one of them is bound to be right.

A broken clock is right twice a day.

Boris wants to do a Trump and take them away to pretend things aren't bad in the UK.
Nah, there's no tory donors or mates making millions from it

The companies that are profiting from it aren't donating enough to the party party.

The companies that are profiting from it are being threatened with losing their money machines so need to up what they're donating to the party party for it to continue.

All of the above.

In 2017-2018 we had 50,000 excess deaths in the UK attributed to influenza. With the benefit of hindsight should we have had restrictions/lockdown to mitigate that risk?
Sure I’ve asked you on a previous occasion but I am really interested on your source as it does not match up with the figures I have

Seems like it's be more effective to reduce fuel poverty, sleeping on the streets, insulate homes etc.

The virus is never going to be over....Covid-19 will be with us forever.
What should be over this year is all restrictions. They have to be. We have to get on with our lives as normal with Covid-19 and it's subsequent variants becoming another ongoing virus we have to live with.
Every one of us will get it at some point.
Booster vaccinations should be given to the elderly and most vulnerable every year around October/November.
However the most important thing for me (and this should have been done a long time ago), is that vaccines are distributed around the globe in a fair way so that the populations in the less developed world have access to them. Many people in these countries have not had one vaccination yet. This is/was a global health emergency and yet too many nations have been insular with their attitudes towards it. Politicians looking after their own interests instead of the world's poor.

While I agree with the world roll out in principal, I've said as much on here a number of times, there are issues not related to the lack of vaccine being supplied.

Some countries around the world appear to have a general reluctance to take the vaccine for among other reasons a mistrust of their governments. This seems to be the case particularly in Africa where reports earlier stated 1,000s of vaccine doses were being dumped as they passed their use by date. In cases like this I can only see the herd immunity thing being achieved by the virus going through their respective populations.
