We couldn’t have banned flights from China, for example, since they now manufacture most of what we need, including medical supplies. What this pandemic should do is to lead to greater reflection amongst the communist/plutocrat class (now interestingly merged), and their naive hangers-on in the university/Waitrose class, about their intellectual bankruptcy in comparison with ordinary folk, and in particular about the costs and perils of unrestrained globalisation of trade and movement. We need to demand sensible reflection from our leaders about the relationship between the nation state and strategic industries, which need to be located in the UK, reliably funded, and staffed by our own trained nationals whom we can trust and if necessary direct. Only then can we consider the kind of measures that so many now regret missing from the UK Government’s armoury in time of national crisis.
