Boris Government? Is It Fit For Purpose?

Obviously its detractors will say definitely NO.  But its supporters, ever more nervous at currents trends in both the political leadership and the surging pandemic, are becoming themselves uncertain.

And it is not just about the reckless Freedom Day fiasco. It is about economic recovery, how it will be financed and how that will impact employment. And don’t forget climate change and social care.

On all these things a confident Boris had been declaring there is a plan or plans. But are there? There is a suspicion that there are actually none or none which are, in his favourite phrase, oven ready. There are convincing reports from commentators and insiders of rows and muddle.

The spectacular chaos of the the isolation status and obligations of both the PM and Chancellor tell us something for sure.

All is not well.
