Yesterday, news leaked out that a great many back-bench Tory MPs were agitating for an end to the lock down because it was harming business.
Now, it should come as no surprise that Tories prefer to put making money ahead of saving lives, but there’s another odd thing about this pro-business opinion. You see, it seems highly likely that these same MPs are the ones who want to bash on with Brexit despite the current Covid19 crisis. They must surely realise that Brexit is going to do even more damage to the UK economy. After all, their own Government’s analysis, such as it was, confirms this. If it comes hard on the heels of the Covid19-driven recession, it is going to be even more devastating.
In summary, it seems the Tories wan business saved from Covid19, but don’t care about the impact on business of Brexit.
Am I the only one confused by this?
