Blog: Wilfully sowing the seeds of masked confusion
We all want a return to our normal pre-COVID-19 lives, but only a government led by Boris Johnson could think they can just wish it, and it will happen.

It is not an optional extra. We are now back to incredibly confusing, constantly changing mixed messages – and it is left to the public to do what they think is right and our members to deal with the fallout. So, mandatory masks for care home and hospital visitors, but not on crowded buses or t...
