Today’s hot topic: Don’t they trust us?


SOMETHING I was thinking about as I was looking out on a beautiful Palm Sunday and wondering why I wasn’t sitting in a pub beer garden.

I’ve read many accounts of the lockdown measures put in place because the government was terrified that the NHS would crumble under its watch, but here is another question. Were these measures put in place because of a lack of trust in British citizens? If the government had told businesses, heritage sites, tourist bodies and eating and drinking holes that they could stay open but only if they told their patrons, visitors, staff that they needed to obey the social distancing rules, could all of this have been achieved?

I do wonder. I think this country would have adhered to that. People would have no need to flout the law and the country would be open without being squeezed. Is the UK closed down because, in part, the government didn’t trust the people? Discuss!
