• I don't think he's saying there's a conspiracy, it's more than likely they've sat on a bit of info and released it at the right time to wave enough bits of cat around to make what's happening work for the problem they were having at that time though, like having to "cancel Christmas". They're not astute enough to think more than one problem ahead at a time though so have now shot through all the holes in their feet again and the border from France has been shut. They're like first time surfers who have managed to catch a wave but are struggling to stay upright, one lucky balancing act at a time, but the wave is made of shit and is heading towards the edge of the flat earth, and something's on fire.

    Still demonstrates a degree of foresight, planning and strategic awareness which is utterly out of character.

    I can entirely believe they went 'thank fuck for that' when the news about the increased infectivity of the new strain came through, as it gave them an excuse to do what they were going to have to do all along. But any degree of competence beyond a low level of basic grubby mendacity and opportunism seems highly unlikely.

    In other news, Niece #1 has just tested positive. Weirdly, no.s 2 and 4 haven't, despite the fact they live in the same house.
