Dissent must survive coronavirus

There is something awfully scary about this image from the Observer:

I have no doubt that the image was carefully chosen fro precisely this reason.

But it does provide a warning: even in the strange world into which we are now moving the questioning of leadership must be actively encouraged. We are not to all line upon in rows and take orders from those who appear before us, as I was expected to in primary school in the 60s.

Dissent is powerful, and must survive coronavirus.
