AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL’S severe criticism of the UK Government’s handling of old folks homes and Covid-19 comes as no surprise.

I recall stating, months ago, that when the pandemic dies down, there would be court cases, with ministers accused of either cavalier negligence or maybe even corporate manslaughter.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out – we could easily be talking millions in compensation.

The future earning potential of the skilled casualties who have died in our homes and our hospitals has to have had some value.
