    How come Stratton had to resign but this bloke Ed Oldfield, who was goading her into saying what she said, hasn’t been heard from?

    Why was she crying? For herself.

    I don't follow why Stratton had to go. If there wasn't a party, then what they did was neither here nor there. If there was a party, then the people at the party, and the ones now covering it up should go. A press secretary rehearsing what might be asked in jokey way seems a poor excuse for resignation in comparison. Makes you think the deflection claim may be true. Have a quick briefing to get Covid front and foremost again and get that on the front pages - announce a press secretary has resigned - and hope that that sacrifice is enough to appease the gullible public.

    As Oliver Cromwell said to the Long Parliament when he thought it was no longer fit to conduct the affairs of the nation: You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go.

    Just listening to Sajid. The reason why yesterday - basically the rate of infection for Omicron. OK, but what is being said now only echoes what was assumed before - ie that Omicron was vastly more transmissible. On that assumption, you introduce the plan anyway don't you - and then relax if those 'assumptions' are wrong? Why leave it days for the base number to increase - track and trace and stamp on it early. Don't wait for 500, 1000 cases.
    I must be a cynic, but to now allow people to work from home when they can, but to go anywhere else indoors, where food and drink are consumed, and mix without masks (especially in the lead up to Christmas) just seems barking if the rate of transmission is the issue.
    The interviewer is just tackling Stratton's resignation and seems to follow my thought - why resign if no party? I think she's been hung out to dry.
