From freedom to caution: a week of mixed messages on Covid reopening
The Guardian says it was the comedian Matt Lucas who best captured the jarring ambiguity in Boris Johnson’s broadcast to the nation last May, as restrictions began to be lifted after the first lockdown. In a much-watched video, Lucas parodied it as: “Don’t go to work; go to work; don’t take public transport; go to work; don’t go to work; stay indoors …”
Dominic Cummings, Johnson’s embittered former adviser, has since put it even more cruelly, comparing the prime minister’s approach to managing the pandemic to “a shopping trolley smashing from one side of the aisle to the other”.
