The Downing Street partygate scandal has damaged the ability of governments to deal with future health crises, the Covid inquiry has heard.

Giving evidence, former cabinet secretary Lord O'Donnell said "under no circumstances" would he have allowed similar parties to take place.

Police issued 126 fixed penalty notices to 83 individuals over events held in and around Number 10 in 2020 and 2021.

At the time, Boris Johnson said he "fell short" of his own rules.

In other testimony, Lord O'Donnell suggested the type of scientific and technical advice available to ministers should be expanded to include experts in more areas.

The Sage group of scientific advisers, which met regularly through the pandemic, was largely made up of epidemiologists, who study the spread of disease, alongside mathematical modellers and behavioural scientists.

Lord O'Donnell suggested, in the future, Sage needs to be part of a broader group which includes specialists in other subjects as well.

"If the question you are asking is 'shall we close schools?', then you need experts on the impact on education, on children, on parents, on the general effect on the economy," he elaborated. "As well as the things which Sage would be really good at answering, which is the impact on transmission.

"You need to balance these things together, which is a hard thing to do."

This second stage of the Covid Inquiry is examining political decision-making during the pandemic, from January 2020 until February 2022, including the timing and effectiveness of lockdowns and other social-distancing restrictions.

From a case study of a hospitalized pregnant woman (30 y/o at 26+3 weeks' gestation) with mild COVID-19,
"Prenatal ultrasound revealed that the placenta was diffusely distributed with punctate echogenic foci, hepatomegaly, and the volume of bilateral lungs decreased significantly, with enhanced echo..
the surface of the fetal brain demonstrated widened gyri with a flattened surface. The prenatal MRI confirmed these fetal abnormalities..
Amniotic fluid was tested for SARS-CoV-2, and the sample tested was positive for the virus. After careful consideration, the pregnant woman decided to terminate the pregnancy.
The intrauterine transmission of COVID-19 is certain. Moreover, the intrauterine transmission of COVID-19 may cause abnormalities in various organs of the fetus."

I feel the fetal brain is one of the critical targets of SARS-CoV-2//

Eye-opening messages sent between Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings about the government’s handling of the start of the pandemic have been released for the first time.

In a WhatsApp exchange between the former prime minister and his then chief of staff, released by the Covid inquiry, Mr Cummings described the Cabinet Office as “terrifyingly s***”, and said it had no proper plans in place for lockdowns.

The messages also revealed that Mr Cummings told his boss that some civil servants wanted to delay ordering people to stay at home as they “haven’t done the work and don’t work weekends“.

The shocking messages also reveal Mr Johnson thought it was “wrong” for the prime minister to meet Scotland’s leader Nicola Sturgeon and Wales’s first minister Mark Drakeford regularly during the pandemic.

Mr Drakeford had been frustrated by what he saw as a lack of meetings with Mr Johnson’s government, but the PM believed working closely with the heads of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland would leave the UK looking like a “mini-EU of four nations”.

“That is not, in my view, how devolution is supposed to work,” he said.

Actually some of the points suggest there could have been so called “lockdowns “ for less time if government had acted quicker.

Stopping planes from China in January, restricting travel in February etc.
sporting events behind closed doors may have prevented the months without any sporting events.

2 years of school exams were cancelled with teachers dishing out top marks .
Expect the report to emphasise the need to ignore unemployment school dropouts on the scrounge  who haven’t got a clue & pay more time listening to those who understand the subject.

U.K. had Boris as PM , his desire to keep everything open & let the virus rip may well have resulted in longer “lockdowns “.
Closing schools while 18 year old school children could go to the pub seems the wrong emphasis on education.

The government were clueless, perhaps understandably in Feb/March 2020. Less understandable in Oct/Nov 2020.

Dermot Keating, counsel for the inquiry, was asking the questions, and he has just asked Glassborow about an entry in Sir Patrick Vallance’s diary in which Vallance, the chief scientific adviser at the time, records Boris Johnson as referring to the Treasury as the “pro-death squad”. Johnson reportedly used the phrase in January 2021, when he wanted the Treasury to back him in arguing for an early lifting of lockdown measures.

Johnson was referring to the Treasury being in favour of prioritising the economy in internal debates on lockdown policy.

Glassborow told the inquiry he did not recall that phrase being used.

Reading from Vallance’s diary, Keating said:

There is an entry … at meeting on 25 January 2021 the PM is recorded saying he wants tier 3 March 1, tier 2 April 1 Tier 1 May 1 and nothing by September, and he ends it by saying the team must bring in the pro-death squad from HMT. Do you recall the phraseology by the prime minister referring to HMT as the pro-death squad?

Glassborow replied:

As I say, this I think refers to a meeting from a couple of years ago. I don’t recall that specific phrase. I see that this is from Patrick’s notebook. I wouldn’t dispute what he’s recorded, but I don’t recall the phrase at all.

Johnson warming up for his testimony
to covid inquiry with a bit of Simon and garfunkel

I am just a poor boy
Though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocketful of mumbles
Such are promises
All lies and jest
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest

When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station
Running scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie

Asking only workman's wages, I come looking for a job
But I get no offers
Just a come-on from the whores on 7th Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there, la-la-la-la-la-la-la

Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie

Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
And wishing I was gone, going home
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Leading me, going home

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of every glove that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains

Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie
Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie

Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie
Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie

Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie
Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie
Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie
Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie

With Boris Johnson to appear before the Covid Inquiry tomorrow, 71% of Britons say they do not consider him trustworthy when it comes to what happened during the pandemic

Only 16% consider him generally trustworthy


1 in 6 trust Johnson, shakes heed in despair
