No one could think Sebastian Payne, who writes for the FT, anything but a Tory. He issued this tweet last night:
The message is loud and clear,. The right-wing of the Tory party want to end Covid restrictions without caring for the consequences. The government knows that this is madness, but will not rely on Labour votes to retain masks. And so, to save Boris Johnson masks must go, even if (as will happen) thousand will die as a result.
This is democide in action.
I just hope that people realise when cases rise very rapidly, as they are now going to do.
