Travel: Are You An Amber Gambler?

av INSIDE BRIEFING with Institute for Government | Publicerades 5/21/2021

Will the Indian Variant push back the Great Unlocking of June 21 that Boris Johnson has pinned so many hopes on? Are we looking at the return to tiers or even national lockdowns, and will Conservative COVID hawks wear it? Meanwhile the Government’s advice on international travel continues to baffle. Is “go but don’t go” really good enough? And what can we expect from the COVID Inquiry, just confirmed by government?“It’s sobering that, if we accept the worst case scenarios, we could be back at the levels of cases that we saw in January and February.” – Giles Wilkes “Any chair who accepted these terms for the COVID enquiry would not be fit for the job.” – Marcus Shepheard“Did the Government delay ending travel from India because it wanted a deal with the Indian Government? Absolutely. I’ll be amazed if not.” – Giles WilkesPresented by Bronwen Maddox with Cath Haddon, Giles Wilkes, Matthew Gill, Rosa Hodgkin and Marcus Shepheard. Audio production by Alex Rees.
