The long hot summer of 2021

Posted on

I can't promise that there will be a long hot summer in 2021. But what worries me is that the government has built up people's hopes and they now think things are going back to normal.

That already looks to be unlikely with regard to foreign holidays and the NHS is already contingency planning for another big Covid peak after schools, shops and other premises are fully reopened. If that happens the government will find it hard to contain the heat of people's anger this summer - and they need to be doing something about that now.
