I am rather hoping that Nicola Sturgeon does impose Coronavirus border controls between Scotland and England. They shouldn’t be too difficult to set up. Indeed, the Johnson government has declared our first ‘plague city’ in the form of Leicester, so the concept of isolating a ‘plague country’ can’t be much of a step. Even the BBC 10 O’clock News last night had a stand alone report on how poorly the UK, and particularly England had performed tackling this ’unprecedented’ crisis. With Winston Delano Johnson having raised people’s expectations that we’re moving into the sunlit uplands, he (and more importantly we) are moving into the most vulnerable stage of this pandemic. The discipline of the initial lockdown may be hard to replicate when more cracks appear in this government’s chronic performance. The sight of queues on the A1 north of Berwick would accentuate the growing realisation that we, south of the border suffer from a very English disease. Such a realisation is long overdue., so c’mon Nicola, don’t delay!
