Stick to Covid facts


IF IT is costing £85 million just to set up the Covid inquiry, heaven knows what the final cost will be.

The country can’t afford it. It will be a waste of time if it is opened up to pressure groups with an axe to grind and people wanting to air their emotions.

It should be purely fact-based. No one had experience­d or dealt with anything like the pandemic before and it was only with hindsight that it became apparent what had worked and what didn’t.

What is needed is a frank discussion between people at the sharp end, with the positives put into future contingenc­y plans.
