The government’s overall policy has been to boost profits at every turn, even at the cost of 160,000 lives and rising. It has no intention of shifting course, because its entire attack on workers and the oppressed has letting the virus rip as its centrepiece.
The government has effectively shifted to a policy of herd immunity by infection. It is a completely reckless policy, without any mitigations or proper safeguards. Scientists and leading medical professional tells us this cannot work.
The British government is determined to conduct a unique and predictably disastrous experiment by easing all restrictions while the pandemic is raging. However, the public wants ‘freedom day’ postponed and existing measures kept in place and the Labour leadership has positioned itself as a partial critic of the government.
The Tory government will only achieve freedom for the virus to mutate and circulate when current measures to reduce transmission are lifted on 19 July. A complete change of direction is needed to avoid another catastrophe.
