As we enter a second lockdown period, I have written to the council to ask what further steps they will be taking locally, particularly in terms of economic support, public health messaging and enforcement.
As the government continues to stagger through one crisis before U-turning into another, towards a winter of uncertainty, the absence of leadership at the very top is just as staggering and certainly more frightening.
I have repeatedly pressed the government to lift the “No Recourse to Public Funds” restriction - which prevents many families who live and work legally in the UK from claiming Universal Credit if they have to stop work - for the duration of the pandemic.
Let’s get physical! One of the dangers of lockdown is to be lulled into laziness, watching too many box sets, and eating and drinking too much, but there is no excuse to not start exercising to get fit and stay healthy.
