Readers’ comments: Why aren’t airports closed?


In response to Kathy Gyngell: A hysterical slide into a police state: Judge warns of liberty being forced into lockdown

I would have been happy with just the social distancing and stopping of hoarding. We didn’t need a lockdown like this. I am one of those who could be vulnerable. I would also have been happier if we had shut airports and stopped people coming in from countries where the virus was already taking a hold.

The ease with which the authorities have slipped into this mindset needs to be looked at, and whether the effective destruction of people’s livelihoods and the economy has properly been evaluated in relation to the risk. If the bar for this action gets lower and lower with a compliant media whipping up fear and anxiety, what other scenarios might another government decide necessary to impose similar restrictions on and will it do so with due scrutiny?

We seem to be falling into a state that displays three main characteristics: narcissism, authoritarianism and socialism. Regrettably, much further down this road and there will be no way back.

I suggest letting all the lions in the zoos and the safari parks loose with tags on them to roam the streets! They would certainly be effective in stopping people going out than the useless Plod (before the outrage mob attack, I am taking the p**s).
