Totally confused

Watched Boris last night and was appalled at how confused and ill organised the government strategy is. Am hoping that today with more clarification things will become clearer but rather doubt it. We do not know how far people can drive to get to a beach or a site of national beauty and what happens when English people try to drive out to Wales or Scotland. It seems like the second home owners lobby has worked with Boris. The new catch phrase 'Stay alert' is meaningless and shows what happens when you turn over 10 Downing Street's communication unit to a eugenicist with a Malthusian approach to human life ( Cummings) and who is surrounded by alt right arrogant and ignorant 20 something year olds who are good at media manipulation in political campaigns but like most of the cabinet do not seem to have a clue as to how to govern and keep the whole population safe.

It is very worrying that with this relaxation before the government can guarantee us sufficient testing, tracking and isolation, neither are there enough up to date medical level PPE for all front line staff, nor is there any clarity about whether we should all be wearing masks when in public to protect one another and if so where we can access them.

I only hope we do not see a rapid return of more cases and deaths especially as we do not seem to have significantly reduced the numbers to date.
