BBC News - Covid: UK start to pandemic worst public health failure ever, MPs say

We listened to the Behavioural scientists. Bloody experts.

147 page document, sick pay mentioned once. Still it’ll start another pointless debate about ‘we should have locked down a week earlier!’ and that’s the main thing
