Yes, lockdown does more harm than good but MPs don’t want to know


BORIS Johnson and the vast majority of MPs are more out of touch with the public than they think.

The result of our poll ‘Will a further Lockdown do more harm than good?’ was decisive. Of the 963 votes cast, 88.4 per cent said it would.

A pity more MPs weren’t listening. There are now across all the parties only 39 of the nation’s representatives worth their salt. 

Only these, the MPs named below, had the guts to vote yesterday against this latest lockdown insanity.  We commend them for their guts and principle. (Conservative unless otherwise stated)
