The surprising aspect of it is that while the government was running 4-5-3-4, private schools, which are more in number than public schools with about over 4000 schools, were not running government programs because the policy was not enforced. It means children of the poor were made aliens in their fatherland, they were running a program that was not in the interest of their future for 8 years.

The north-east currently has the highest rate of Covid infection in Britain and the transition to a safe, socially distancing new normal will be complicated, fraught and risky. Last week, as he battled to move on from the Cummings episode, Johnson announced in Thursday’s Downing Street press conference that the government’s five tests for easing lockdown were being met.

In the words of Martin Gannon, the leader of Gateshead’s Labour-run council: “Until now, in just about every single area, everything that has been co-ordinated by the centre has been a complete and unmitigated disaster.” Somewhat under the radar, a low-key regional rebellion has begun to take place on the basis that London doesn’t always know best.
