Pandemic - Jonathan Smith says government has failed Cheshire
The Knutsford Guardian article on 12th October confirms what many of us have already concluded: the Government’s leadership during the pandemic crisis has been woefully incompetent and dangerously disjointed.
For many months, Liberal Democrats have been urging No.10 to:
- place local authorities and local health leaders at the centre of the response
- establish even a ‘good enough’ test, track and trace system
- avoid worsening the already stark inequalities across the country
- prevent the ‘de facto’ break-up of the United Kingdom.
On each of these counts, the Conservatives have failed. The people of Tatton are paying the price with their livelihoods and their lives.
