The Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) continues to fight the Prime Minister on his roadmap and the 21st June deadline.
As we get closer to the end of the lockdown measures, Downing Street is sending out briefings to the press and media to reassure the public that we are still on the right track. However, certain members of SAGE continue to speak to journalists separately to express their concerns about this deadline.
Whether they are right or wrong is irrelevant at this point. The government needs to show that they understand discipline and unity. Downing Street must stop the scientists from contradicting the government’s line. The public deserve to know who is in charge.
