They say a week is a long time in politics. The PM was a week in hospital with Covid-19 symptoms but is now recovering at Chequers; he seemed very well when he made his 'thank you' podcast. But what a week it has been. Some foolish people continue to ignore common sense and behave irresponsibly but then some public servants also seem to lack a sense of proportion. However, generally the public are showing tolerance and wisdom by being sensible. The PM was quick to praise the Nation for its stoicism. Some sections of the media have used the last week to:'think aloud'.
