UK consistency

We need to be consistent throughout the UK in covid-19 measures.

Why the contribution is important

The public have been getting mixed messages through different approaches taken by the different 'nations' in the UK. This leads to confusion about what is allowed and what is not. It has also led to much inaccurate reporting by the BBC as they do not seem to be aware that there are different measures currently being imposed in different areas. A national approach would avoid these problems.

    The issue I have with UK consistency is that in my view after following the research and scientific advice, I know that Westminster have made a lot of mistakes and this has cost lives. The PMs bumbling and herd immunity and ‘take it in the chin’ attitude showed how ignorant they were at the start and how they now still continue make errors and leave their decisions open to interpretation. In the UK the daily death rate is still too high to ease restrictions and therefore I wouldn’t wish to see any easing just yet. I believe our FM has been informative open and honest about actions and saw when the transition from following UK plans to changing to focus on Scotland when Westminster were making too many errors which where costing lives. I agree this could lead to confusion but following Westminster is not an option in my opinion because of the 2nd wave that is undoubtably going to hit England hard if Boris releases lockdown now. I have seen that the Welsh parliament are also resistant to lifting lockdown now. I see no option but to follow different routes if it means lives will be saved.
