Disliking and distrusting this government does not automatically mean someone is a socialist. Realist perhaps.

Socialism has and does cost far more cash and lives, yet escapes censure.

And when are we ever going to be living in a socialist UK? You are conveniently confusing the Labour party with the SWP.

And what socialism is being censured in the UK today? I am genuinely intrigued and always willing to learn. You never got back to me on that BLM Marxist lazy labelling either btw.

No real surprise at the countries topping the death tolls.

I was about to post to this effect.  I find it rather surprising that the failure to impose lockdown early and the desire to lift it early (in my opinion) would seem to impact (or kill if you would) large numbers of a demographic that is essentially the base of their support. This seems somewhat counter-intuitive or is there indeed a "cunning plan" behind all this?

Yes there is a plan - to get the economy going so we don't go bankrupt I Guess? People will continue to die from this awful virus like they do other ones, but we have to get on with living our lives.

As long as it’s not you you mean?

It may be me, I'm no spring chicken, we all have a chance of catching it don't we? I would rather there was a hard lockdown tbh until every case has been tracked and solved but that clearly isn't going to happen so life with its risks must go on!

Fair do's. I only meant I didn't see the need to start lifting the lockdown at a point that - comparing case and infection rates - is earlier than either Germany, Spain or Italy. 10 or even 7 more days would not have broken the camel's back - and it seems the Science & scientists that Boris claims he is being led by - felt the same.

330 Tory MPs vote to NOT test health and social care workers for Covid weekly...

I suppose it costs more than hypocritically clapping the ‘low skilled’

That's a bit like disagreeing over which of the polar ice-caps would make the best holiday destination.

Governing party votes against entirely virtue signalling opposition motion shock.

That you even deem this worthy of a post screams naivety.

No socialism is being  censured in the UK. Socialist views escape censure.

If BLM founders self identify as Marxist, then who am I (or you) to argue?
