THE Government is claiming that they are constantly “following the evidence and science” and we now have over 36,000 deaths in a population of 65m.

South Korea, with a population of over 50m has had 250 deaths and no “lockdown”.

If they were following the evidence, exactly what were our politicians following to achieve such outstanding results?

I suspect that we were following the evidence but were about two weeks late in applying it, being so transfixed by Brexit.
