Stephen Barclay still going for ‘I don’t believe we did lock down too late’ on GMB this morning. Although he did admit to not actually having read the report when interviewed on Sky.

I don’t see any sort of apology coming soon.shpalman wrote: ↑Tue Oct 12, 2021 6:15 amYesterday in the Guardian Live Blog Patrick Vallance said his “mantra” throughout the pandemic has been that action needs to be taken sooner than it appears to be needed.
