Here is a series of tweets from Robert Dingwall, who is a member of SAGE:
This is great. However, our detestable government and its new Health Secretary, Savid Jabid, who insists he will still wear a mask after July 19th, have made it legal for shops and businesses to impose their own mask mandates, effectively meaning nothing much will change if, as I suspect, many shops and businesses continue to insist that masks are worn on their premises. I believe the government knows this. I believe the government is actually encouraging this stance by big business. The fear-based control freakery and the anti-human, anti-science, anti-society ‘new normal’ will continue over summer until masks are probably once again made mandatory during autumn and winter. The naked human face is set to become taboo if we cannot summon the courage and determination to resist en masse, as a society, this continuing outrage, which is in fact an assault upon science, society, rationality, humanity and basic human freedom.
